Spankin New Guns of 2011

We all like new guns. We like to hold them, look at them, and judge them. Since the New Year is upon us, we decided to list some of our favorite guns of 2011. All in all, it was a very good year for firearms. Manufacturers came up with some models that will be around for a long time to come. So here are our favorites, in no particular order.

Ruger LC9

Ruger LC9

The Ruger LC9 is a double action only, hammer fired, locked-breech pistol with a smooth trigger pull. The LC9’s nestles itself in the hand very well with it’s excellent ergonomics. The main appeal to this pistol is however, is it’s small frame, which is easily concealable. A number of advanced features, other than size are also apparent. The magazine is able to hold seven rounds, with an additional cartridge in the chamber. The 3-dot sights are adjustable, and the gun features a manual safety, in addition to the double action trigger pull. The Ruger LC9 also features smooth “melted” edges for ease of holstering, carrying, and drawing. Shooters can accomplish control and confident handling of the Ruger LC9 through reduced recoil and aggressive frame checkering, for a positive grip in all conditions. This is an excellent, affordable option for a defensive, concealed carry handgun.

Diamondback DB9

Diamondback DB9 semi-automatic double action only subcompact 9mm Luger handgun with a 2.8″ barrel, 6 round capacity, black polymer frame, blued slide and fixed sights. Diamondback Firearms released the DB9 mid 2011. This amazing little firearm is a micro-compact 9mm automatic pistol made entirely in the USA. Designed with safety in mind, the DB9 features a “ZERO-Energy” striker firing system (patent pending) with a mechanical firing pin block, a steel magazine catch to secure a sheet metal magazine and real windage-adjustable sights, all in a lightweight pistol. A steel trigger with dual connecting bars allows for a crisp smooth, five-pound DAO trigger pull. The DB9 features a FEA (Finite Element Analysis) designed slide and barrel that is stronger than any comparable firearm, resulting in durability with less felt recoil, and the absence of removable pins or tools makes field stripping very easy. Diamondback coated the slide, barrel, and internal parts to resist corrosion, making this pistol a lifetime investment, and perfect choice for concealed carry.

KAHR CM9

KAHR CM9

KAHR CM9

KAHR holds six patents protecting the unique design features of their pistols. The CM9 is a striker fired sub-compact with a six round magazine. Because of its asymmetric feed ramp design (that’s one patent right there) the CM9 is only .9 inches wide, yes that’s less than an inch. Despite a short overall length of only 5.42 inches, the barrel is still 3 inches long, providing good accuracy. The trigger has a very smooth, light double action feel. The CNC machined 416 stainless steel slide houses the drift-adjustable, white bar-dot combat sights, which the eye easily picks up for rapid target acquisition. The CM9’s frame is made of polymer for lightness, but it still strong enough that the Kahr polymer framed guns enjoy a great reputation for durability. The CM9 stands out as a beautifully crafted, trustworthy, and tiny 9mm that is easily hidden, yet easy to shoot. KAHR’s excellent reliability record gives peace of mind to owners who need a concealable gun they can trust when people’s lives are on the line.

Century International Arms Saiga Semi Auto Rifle

Century International Arms Saiga Semi Auto Rifle

I know this isn’t a compact pistol, but it sure is a cool gun. This is an original Russian Saiga rifle converted to more of the original AK look! The Ruskies put the trigger group in the “right” place and Century added a standard AK type buttstock and pistol grip. This gun is fully 922r compliant while retaining the original Russian chrome lined barrel! Luckily, this guy uses easy to find AK-47 magazines thanks to the slightly modified mag well. No proprietary annoyances for you sir! The specs are pretty standard as well. It features a 30 round magazine, a 16.25 inch barrel, which makes the gun 35.5 inches overall. It weighs in at 8.05 pounds and shoulders like a dream. If you want a reliable 7.62×39 battle rifle that will cycle every time, then this will do the job perfectly!

Alrighty, so now you’ve got your pocket pistol, you need a good holster to keep it in. The DeSantis holster has a sticky, rubberized fabric so that it stays in your pocket, but won’t imprint. What’s better, it will fit your other pocket pistols, as well such as many models of Kahr, the Kel-Tec PF9, and the SIG P290.
