Shooting Sports News: ArachniGRIP Supports Law Enforcement with Thin Blue Line Slide Grip; Davidson’s Adds D&H Tactical

Winchester Ammunition has upgraded its component line and rebranded with bright, new packaging that will be easy for consumer to see in stores.

ArachniGRIP is showing support for law enforcement with its new Thin Blue Line Slide Spider and will donate a portion of profits from each Thin Blue Line Slide Spider to charity.

ArachniGRIP created the Thin Blue Line Slide Spider for shooters to proudly display support and appreciation for the brave men and women of the law enforcement community. The bright blue line crosses a black background to symbolize the line of separation between order and chaos.

The Thin Blue Line Slide Spider has an MSRP of $19.95. To further honor our heroes in law enforcement, for the next 30 days ArachniGRIP will donate $2 from every Thin Blue Line Slide Spider purchase to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Tunnel to Towers is committed to giving remembrance to the first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice during the events of 9/11 and today. They operate multiple programs to assist families of fallen first responders and military with mortgage-free housing. Their Fallen First Responder Home Programaims to pay off mortgages for families left behind by law enforcement officers and firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The Slide Spider grip by ArachniGRIP is available for most semi auto pistol models. The Slide Spider grip products enable the shooter to gain increased control through a safe and secure hold. The products also offer additional tactical advantages under challenging operating conditions, including extreme moisture and temperature.

Wilson Combat, Sig Sauer Partner on P320

Wilson Combat and Sig Sauer announce the availability of the second Wilson Combat-enhanced P320 9mm semi-automatic pistol collaboration, the WCP320 Carry.

Wilson Combat gunsmiths and engineers have completely reworked a Sig Sauer P320 chassis and unfinished Sig manufactured compact slide into a “Professional” size, full-size grip with 3-slot accessory rail for a portable, yet full-capacity 9mm handgun.

This pistol wears the Wilson Combat-engineered polymer Carry-2 grip module with 3-slot rail. This newly designed and manufactured grip has enhanced traction, smoother reloading, improved pointablity and superb recoil control in dynamic shooting.

The compact slide has been machined with the Wilson Combat X-TAC pattern for improved manipulation under stress. The front and rear cocking serrations, as well as the slide top, wear this signature Wilson Combat pattern. The stainless steel slide and chromoly barrel wear the most advanced black DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) physical vapor deposition finish available. This finish has chromium and tungsten underlayers for long-lasting corrosion and abrasion resistance.

The Sig Sauer flat-faced XFULL trigger is standard on the WCP320 and gives shooters a lower finger position on the trigger which increases leverage for a lighter, smoother trigger pull.

The pull can be further enhanced by Wilson Combat gunsmiths with our optional action tune using Grayguns custom trigger parts.
