SHOT Show 2013

As you all know, I was out in Vegas this year, again... with Primary Weapons Systems (PWS). They are the makers of the most reliable piston driven AR platform that I have ever used. I have written extensively about my experiences using the MK1 and MK2 series rifles in training, and to say that I am a fan of the Long Stroke Piston System, is an understatement.

Keeping the changes quiet was a very difficult task for me. PWS has essentially, raised the bar to a very high level. Keep an eye on PWS for up and coming things... this company is built on ethics, staffed by shooters, and committed to quality.

If you are in the market for a stone cold, reliable AR, that needs very MINIMAL TLC, have a look.

Here are some off the cuff videos I shot with PWS, talking about the new features...

Stacey talked about the new MK3 bolt action precision rifle that PWS is now making. This rifle makes me drool. However, I do not have ANY time on one, so I could not speak intelligently about it. However, I did fondle it quite a bit, and it is on my short list of "must haves".

My plan is to get my hands on a MK118 Wraith and use it in 3 Gun, and local TAC Rifle meets, as well as testing it as a peremeter rifle / SPR type rig. I also have a MK218 on que, to fill the role as a SWS in the LE world... once I get them in hand, I will detail my findings. Handling them at SHOT was like petting a unicorn...

Great Job PWS!!!!!!

  1. ALL:

    I have gotten a few emails about the new revisions of the PWS rifles. Let me say this. I have several of the what is now called "Mod 0" rifle... the original design, which I am so fond of. The now "Mod 1" design took what was being seen as a detractor, and fixed it. Now, the new PWS MK1 and MK2 rifles have every feature that is positive on both DI rifles (free floating hand guards / adjustable gas blocks) and everything that is positive about the Long Stroke Piston System, with zero negatives. They have, in my mind, perfected an already close to perfect design. This will still not please die hard DI fans, who state that there is no need for a piston system. Well, that is debatable. PWS does one thing VERY well... they build rock solid, reliable weapons, which I for one, am proud to run. If you get a chance, pick one up and handle it. To hold it, to shoot it, is to buy it.
