This video is from our first trip to the range with the new IWI X95 bullpup Rifle. Like the Tavor the X95 will run any kind of ammo you want to put in it. We tested Federal, Remington, Tula, Wolf Gold, Wolf Steel, and a few others with no issues whatsoever. The recoil is smooth and fairly light, just like it’s IWI big brother. The new magazine release on the X95 is ok, but we still prefer the one on the Tavor better. The biggest and best improvement over the Tavor is the built in rail system on the new x95. The new gun has both left right, and bottom standard picatinny rails, with easily removable covers. The new X95 also features a full picatinny top rail with back up sights that are built into the rail. Overall our first impressions of this new offering from IWI are very good. We will do another video on the gun after we have had a lot more time with it. If you want to learn more about the new X95 rifle from IWI click the link here:
We have been asked several times if the aftermarket IWI Tavor triggers, such as the Shooting Sight TAV-D, and Geissel Automatics Super Sabra work in the new IWI X95. The short answer is yes, but with some minor modifications. We go over what needed to been done to our x95 in order for the Shooting Sight TAV-D, and Geissele Super Sabra triggers to work properly.
This will be the first test in a series of tests that we will do with the DRT “Dynamic Research Technologies” Terminal Shock series. In This video we shoot the 9mm hollow Point through a 16″ Clear Ballistics block. We use a Glock 19, and a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 for the test, both fired and about 3 yards. We also fire the DRT Terminal Shock rounds through six layers of denim. We were very impressed with the performance of the ammo, both in penetration and wound channel. The results we got were exactly what DRT claims in its advertisements, which we really liked. This ammo is best suited for CCW, and home defense for the damage it causes, and it’s ability not to over penetrate. We will be doing more test with this ammo, as well as some other calibers from DRT Ammunition.

In our testing of the Magpul D60 drum magazine, we found the D60 to be a little hard to load, but it seemed to function in just about everything we put it in, other than the guns stated in the video. The Magpul D60 can be loaded and stored away without any ill effects, this is a plus considering that it can be a pain to load. We like the D60 given Magpul”s reputation for making quality products. The D60 retails for $129, but you can find it cheaper if you look around. We have to give Magpul high marks on this one. If you want to learn more about the Magpul D60 click the link: Here

The Silencerco Salvo 12 shotgun suppressor is a very adjustable12 gauge shotgun silencer. The Salvo is able to transform form a 12″, 10″, 8′, or even a 6″ suppressor, with the addition of some shorter rods from Silencerco. With the Salvo attached the shotguns were much quieter of course, and had greatly reduced recoil, as one would expect from a $1,400 shotgun silencer. The Salvo is easy to install on your shotguns, by just adding a choke adaptor. We were very impressed with the Silencerco Salvo 12 suppressor, it was very comfortable one the ears and the shoulder. if you shoot a shotgun a lot, or if you hunt with a shotgun, and can afford the price tag, the Salvo 12 is for you.

The guys over at Apex Tactical Specialties sent us one of the soon to be released triggers, this time for the ever popular Walther PPQ. The Walther PPQ already has one of the best factory triggers out there for a striker fired handgun. Walther asked Apex if they could do an even better aftermarket trigger for their PPQ pistol. Apex as usual was up to the challenge! The new flat faced forward set trigger doesn’t change the factory trigger pull weight, although many may argue that it does, because of the way the trigger is designed it feels lighter. We seen the most improvement in the triggers travel, which seemed to be significantly decreased from the factory trigger. Another area where the PPQ Flat Faced Trigger shined was in the Reset, and the break, both of these areas seemed greatly improved over stock. After all of the testing we did on the new trigger we don’t have any problems recommending this new trigger to all the PPQ owners out there. if you would like to learn more about the new Apex Flat Faced Forward Set Trigger for the Walther PPQ check out Apex’s website Here
After spending just a little over a year with our Glock 19 done by MOD1 Firearms, we are happy to report that the gun has held up amazingly well in that time! The gun has been my daily carry for almost everyday of that year, and shows very little signs of wear to the slide, or the texturing. We have put quite a few rounds through the gun without any real issues to date, we couldn’t be happier with the work that MOD1 Firearms has done! We look forward to many new projects with MOD1 in the future. If you would like to have MOD1 Firearms do any work for you, check them out Here for more information.
