It's a dirty job, but someone has to go drool on all the new toys... and one of two of the models hired to show them off.

KW,

Thanks for the roundup. I was hoping for a .40 S&W chambered Springfield XDS (to match my XDM), bummer. Next year I guess. smile

Best,

Bob

I'm guessing next year for .40 in the XDs. The 9 was logical for this year. I'm perfectly happy with the .45. smile

The XDs .45, introduced last year, is a real winner. I'm somewhere north of 600 rounds in mine at the moment, all with legit LEO/SD ammo, with nary a hiccup. I have a full review in the current (Jan) issue of Gun World. My only nit was that it didn't come with night sights, but that would, of course, bump up the price. I installed a set of Meprolights. I'm sure the new nine will have brisk sales.

Being discussed in the hunting rifle section. I believe it would be cheaper to buy a regular vanguard and stick a McMillan edge under it and come out ahead in the money department by a good bit.

The greatest appeal to me, is the bedding system. The greatest detractor, is the lack of a short action, and the standard caliber chamberings would't make me write a check either.

I've got a 700 with a Hogue aluminum beding system and can't say enough good things about it. Also had a chance to load for, and carry a Savage Weather Warrior. It's not like Savages need help in the accuracy department, but danged if they didn't get it.

At 6 3/4#, Weatherby is close - a standard caliber chambering like 6.5x284-Norma would do it for me. So would a short action.

You may add the new Browning "Maral" in-line repeater, designed for driven hunts with manual cocking device, straight pull ejection and auto reload after manual ejection. Mag capacity higher than what we may have in our hunting semi autos.

Now there's a head scratcher. Took the BAR and made it auto-load, but manual eject????

Is this what future "assault" rifles will look like?

in-line repeaters are very popular here among hunters and very big market lead by blaser.

BAR are very popular but legal capacity for hunting with an auto loader is usually 2+1 (and fixed mags are mandatory in some countries) which is not enough for lots of battue hunters ... Browning just tries to get is part from the straight pull action market and is certainly going to make a lot of money with it.

KW, you mention a new M70 with a stainless barrel. Should that read barreled action, or is it SS tube and CroMo action?

I'm looking forward to testing this one. I should have one for review within a month. Don't know what caliber it will be as they're building them now and it will be first available. Weatherby's goal with this rifle was to get the weight down while retaining a 24 in barrel -- hence the fluted No. 2 contour barrel. That will appeal to some, especially in the magnum chamberings. They originally announced this as having a pillar-bedded stock, but told me they have switched to a stock with an aluminum bedding block. They said they also "made some changes" to the stock itself to help keep the weight down. In any event, they're confident in the package as it comes with the sub-MOA guarantee.

There are two new models with camo stocks. The SS has a stainless barrel and receiver. Weight varies from 6 lbs. 12 oz. to 7 lbs. 4 oz., depending on caliber. It's available in the following: 243, 7mm-08, 308, 270, 30-06, 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag, 300 WSM, 270 WSM and 325 WSM. MSRP is $1039-$1079. Here are basic specs on the Ultimate Shadow Hunter SS from Winchester:

"LIGHTWEIGHT SYNTHETIC STOCK WITH Mossy Oak® BREAK-UP INFINITY® CAMO helps you hide from wary game
•GRAY OVERMOLDED RUBBERIZED GRIPPING SURFACES offer enhanced control
•MATTE METAL SURFACES help reduce glare
•ALLOY ONE-PIECE BOTTOM METAL WITH STEEL FLOORPLATE adds rigidity for better accuracy
•FORGED STAINLESS STEEL RECEIVER WITH INTEGRAL RECOIL LUG IS BEDDED FRONT AND REAR to eliminate shifts in zero for exceptional long-range accuracy
•PRE-’64 STYLE CONTROLLED ROUND FEED WITH CLAW EXTRACTOR fully controls cartridge from magazine, to chamber, to ejection
•Three-Position Safety shows safety status at a glance
•SPORTER WEIGHT FREE-FLOATING STAINLESS STEEL BARREL for years of pinpoint accuracy
•RECESSED TARGET CROWN enhances accuracy and protects the rifling
•M.O.A. Trigger SYSTEM with zero take-up, zero creep and zero overtravel gives you outstanding accuracy
•Blade-Type Ejector for full ejection control
•WinSorb™ TECHNOLOGY RECOIL PAD for optimal protection against felt recoil"

It's not in their 2013 catalogue, and I didn't see it at SHOT. I may be wrong, but I don't think it's coming to the U.S. this year.

Maybe I am missing something here but did anyone see the Winchester M70 SHOT Special rifles. Between meetings I made it over and was not disappointed. A 26" Extreme Weather in .264 Win Mag., this one may be calling my name in a bad way. At right about 7lbs it may be what I consider perhaps the perfect western deer rifle. Also a 26" wood/ blued Featherweight in 7x57, I am sure that neither one of these will last long but keep an eye out for distributors to get a few...

Also the new short action 84M Kimber Ascent, at a few ounces under 5lbs it seemed to be disrespecting the laws of physics when you picked it up, but, it extremely intriguing. If they introduce a 7-08 or .260 it might be too much to handle at bonus time...

Thanks,
Nick

The Ascent was actually introduced last year, but it escaped my notice. With any luck, I may still get to do a review on it. I'm intrigued with it, too. What? You mean you don't want it in .280 AI? wink

As for M70, I don't recall seeing any SHOT Special rifles - just the two new Ultimate Shadow Hunter models (one blued, one stainless), Then again, I was on a mission to track new stuff.

Saw it in the Browning international catalog, the product is ready since summer 2012 but in 2012 the launch of the B725 was the priority.
