New Products at SHOT Show

The New Product Guide is overwhelmingly large.

Shot Show 2017 New Products

The New Product Showcase at SHOT Show takes up a whole room. They publish a guide to new products that is as big as a small town phone book. Here’s just a few highlights of what we found that was super cool.

Aside from the Hudson H9, which was the subject of yesterday’s post, some other guns and gear got our attention. We’ll be posting other new gear and guns throughout the week.

The PD-10 is slim, holds a single-stack 10-round magazine and has a streamlined slide lock lever. Like the Hudson H9, it uses a striker-fired operation. This gun was first introduced last year, but wasn’t yet in production at that time. Check out the specs.

SOG Sync II multitool

One of the most popular booths at SHOT Show 2017 was SOG’s. The keg of beer they were pouring had something to do with it. But people really were interested in their new utility knives. If you stood in line and made a donation, you got not only a pint of beer, I think it was Sierra Nevada, but also a free tiny folding knife.

The SOG Sync II multitool folds up so compactly that it doubles as a belt buckle. The clip can also allow it to be clipped on to a pocket or bag. Closed, it is 2.4 inches and weighs 2.6 ounces. It has 11 tools, from an awl to wire cutters.

Leupold VX-6HD Scope

This innovative new scope utilizes a high-definition lens for ultimate clarity. Leupold’s Twilight Max Light Management System helps it perform very well in low-light. The new CDS-ZL2 (Custom Dial System ZeroLock 2) elevation and ZeroLock windage dial lock in place so they cannot be inadvertently rotated. Press a button to dial up two turns of elevation. On the second revolution, the button sinks in to show you are on the second turn. You can dial and never lose your place. An in-scope Electronic Reticle Level indicator is included for precise leveling, and a throw lever for fast magnification changes works for either right or left handed folks.
