‘New’ might not be the most appropriate word, as some of these highly anticipated firearms were seen nearly a year ago at SHOT Show 2015. However, sometimes production on new firearms can be a little slow. Companies work out the kinks on production models or have trouble keeping up with demand on current models and release of new guns get delayed. Either way, Cheaper Than Dirt! finally has these six new(ish) firearms finally in stock and shipping!
CZ 805 Bren PS1 Pistol
The CZ 805 Bren PS1 is a civilian-legal semiautomatic pistol based on the famed CZ 805 Bren machine gun. It is the first time CZ has made this model in a semiauto. Chambered for .223 Remington and with an 11-inch barrel, the new Bren PS1 uses STANG magazines. The one-piece upper receiver is constructed of aluminum and has a monolithic Picatinny rail. The 805 Bren PS1 has a nice two-stage trigger and an adjustable gas system.

The MPX-P operates on a short stroke piston system and has an 8-inch barrel. Many of the parts are compatible with standard aftermarket AR-15 parts including the trigger group and controls.

Inland Manufacturing 1911A1 Pistol
Few manufactuers make a quality 1911 that is also affordable, so when a company produces a nice, reliable 1911 for less, it is worthy of mention and review. Inland Manufacturing has started producing a clone of the time-honored piece—the classic World War II 1911A1 .45 ACP pistol. Its exterior boosts all the classic details and styling of a G.I. 1911—vertical slide serrations, fixed combat sights, Parkarized finish, lanyard loop and plastic wood-looking grips. Internally, Inland Manufacturing has updated the 1911 by using modern 4100-series steels in its construction.

The P30SK shares all the same features as its full-sized namesakes the P30 and P30K, but comes in a much smaller, easier-to-conceal package. One of its main selling points is its completely adjustable grip. The H&K P30SK includes interchangeable backstraps and lateral grip panels that easily modify to any shooter’s hands and grip. The P30SK offers an automatic hammer and firing pin safeties, different trigger configurations, ambidextrous controls and has a Picatinny rail.
