10MM 1911s The Next Big Thing

More and more people are coming to the 1911 platform for the 10mm chambering and the manufacturers are taking notice. In my 1911 group on Facebook flocks of people are discovering what a select few have known all along, and that’s the 1911 in 10mm makes a great hunting pistol as well as a tremendously accurate shooter.

Recently The Gun Room Inc. sold out of all of our old stock of Colt Delta Elites and our new stock as well. During the re-order we decided to bring in a Remington R1 in 10mm and have been pretty blown away at the quality and price.

If you’ve known us for very long you know we only carry the good stuff and if it’s the good stuff you are looking for come in and see what we have.

Dan Wesson 10mm?

Got it!

Remington R1 10mm?

Got it!

Colt Delta Elite 10mm?

Got it!

The Gun Room Inc. has more guns that you are looking for than anywhere else in the NW.

Night Vision For Everyone

It’s not too often the crew here at The Gun room Inc. gets jazzed about another widget but today was different. Today the little kids came out of us all when we were handed a second gen night vision scope. This is not the old school Vietnam era starlight scope of yore, this is new school digital with multiple modes and reticles and it even works in the day time without a hitch.

This writer was more than impressed when I went to the pitch black basement and touched the power button. I was imagining clearing a bad guy hideout in the dark when someone turned on the lights. Surprise the unit didn’t washout and with a simple flip of the cover the integrated pin hole made the whole operation pretty tacticool!

While these scopes are intended for hogs and bad guys they make night vision available to the average guy for pennies on the dollar. If we would have had this tech back when I was in the service I think some things would have gone much better.

features include:

  • day or night use
  • high optical magnification
  • built in 810nm LED IR illuminator (laser illuminators / target designators on some models)
  • video output (rca)
  • camera resolution 656 x 492
  • selectable electronic reticles
  • field of view 22.5ft @100 yards
  • max detection range 130yd
  • magnification 4.6
  • objective lens diameter 42mm
  • eye relief 2.36 inches
  • 30mm tube diameter
  • 2 x AA batteries
  • weight 23.6 oz

These night vision scopes are priced to fit in everyone’s budget and The Gun Room Inc. has them in stock today.

Steyr S9A1 9MM Pistol

If you are new to hand guns or are a combat veteran with multiple tours the Steyr S9A1 may be for you. Steyr’s legend starts back well over 100 years ago, in fact the family and region is known for quality weapons dating back as far as the 1200s. So what makes the futuristic looking Steyr S9A1 any different than say the flavor of the week polymer (plastic) pistol?

From the novel triangular sights, to the grip angle, and low bore axis the Steyr S9A1 pistol is an instinctive shooter that requires very little effort to get on target for that first shot and following shots. The Steyr S9A1s’ design allows for a high grip ensuring positive muzzle control for even the smallest to the largest of hands.

Ten rounds in the magazine means this is a compact pistol with plenty of power for those shooters who follow the spray and pray technique. One thing I should note is that the Steyr is an easy to point and shoot pistol and one can’t help but make great shots like a pro so forget about spray and pray. Your shooting technique will improve with the Steyr whether you want it to or not. You can’t help but put rounds in the 10 ring with a Steyr and your friends with pistols from that other well known Austrian firm will get a case of severe envy.

We fed every kind of ammo that we had at the shop thru one of ours and found that the Steyr S9A1 gobbled it up and asked for more without a single stoppage. The trigger pull on the Steyr S9A1 is about as good as it gets for a striker fire type of firearm and uses a much better trigger safety than on other striker fire pistols we shoot for training and recreation.

As for carrying, the Steyr S9A1 makes for easy concealment whether inside the waistband or outside depending on your outfit and some concealed carry coats seem to be made with the Steyr in mind.

if you’re curious about the pistol that looks like it came from a silver screen sci-fi flick come on down to The Gun Room Inc. on SE Foster Rd. in Portland Oregon and see one for your self.

Here’s a random video from someone else talking about the Steyr S9A1 so you won’t have to take our word for it.

Steyr AUG MUD

Last week Mike had to say goodbye to one of his favorite bullpups, the Steyr AUG MUG.

It was adopted by a customer who made the already compact Steyr AUG look even smaller.

Not everyone is as big as our friend Carolina Panthers Offensive Tackle Michael Remmers but  the Steyr AUG fits them all. Mike almost cried when the Steyr AUG MUD left but he knows it went to a good home. Adopt your next bullpup from The Gun Room Inc. and get a gun with a pedigree before someone else does.

Milo’s Pic Of The Week

This whole last week Milo took some time off to get in a bit of quality range time with the Smith & Wesson 640-1 Pro Series.

What can Milo say but “Pretty Bird” he absolutely loves this pistol, this work of Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center high art. Milo loves that it shoots +P ammo non-stop, and with the cut out cylinder Milo uses moon clips for his quick tactical (or tacticlaw in Milo’s case) reloads. The Smith & Wesson Performance Center 640-1 Pro Series is meant for easy carry, easy concealment, and easy target acquisition due to the Trijicon night sights Smith & Wesson saw fit to include.

I’m not sure Milo’ even ate any crackers or peanuts this whole last week. Milo and Mike have been at it for days and they both have this pistol. If you are more of a sparrow than a parrot and don’t want to shoot full house .357cal you can also shoot .38 special which greatly reduces felt recoil and knocks the edges off some of the bark.

 

Smith & Wesson Specs from their page below:

Milo’s Pick Of The Week Remington 700 Lapua Magnum

The first week of February always has Milo preoccupied with setting up a long range shooter for when the weather breaks here in the Northwest. Milo’s preoccupation this season is with the Remington 700 action chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum. While other lame ducks are still trying to hop up the old rifle with a wildcat cartridge Milo takes the off the shelf approach and goes with Remington’s tried and true Model 700.

To say Remington’s 700 action is robust would be an understatement. The Gun Room Inc. is Remington’s Pro Custom Shop in Portland, we get the really really good rifles here in the calibers Milo demands for his bird brained shooting drills.

Milo used to shoot the Barrett .50 cal but now prefers the .338 Lapua Magnum because the bullets are easier to carry and easier to come by.

To get your own 338 Lapua Magnum come see Milo at The Gun Room Inc., call us today (503)777-3931 and get that extra special model made just for you.

Sig Sauer Model 320 Modular System Adopted By US Army

When the dust settled from the highly competitive contract there were only two firearms makers left; Glock and Sig Sauer. During the 2017 Shot Show it was announced albeit a surprise to the competitors that Glock had been dropped like Beretta, and FN leaving only Sig Sauer Standing.

To celebrate Sig Sauer broke out the bubbly and passed flutes around for a celebratory toast to those present. Breaking the 30 year reign of Beretta and it’s 9mm platform made people cheer out loud, especially service members like this one who had a strong distaste for the aging model.

Most of the current military and Iraq / Afghanistan veterans I’ve talked to have regarded the Army’s decision as legit and definitely couldn’t come too soon. Some of us old timers never dropped the 1911 as a mission pistol and some of the branches are bringing it back again.

“By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we have optimized private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines, and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters,” Army Acquisition Executive Steffanie Easter said said in a press release.

In their statements, Army and Sig officials didn’t specify what caliber the new Sig Sauer pistol will be.

Sig touts the P320 model product as “modular” and “adaptable,” with interchangeable grips, multiple sizes and calibers that can be converted between 9mm, .357SIG and .40S&W. “From calibers, to pistol size, to the grip fit best suited for the shooter, the P320 is the most adaptable pistol available today,” the company says in promotional materials.
