Springfield Armory XDMSpringfield Armory XDM

For the last few years, DefenseReview has received some pretty glowing feedback on the Springfield Armory XD45 (eXtreme Duty 45) .45 ACP pistol. One of the primary aspects of the XD45 pistol that the professionals we've interviewed appreciate is its fully-supported chamber which allows them to fire high-pressure +P and/or +P+ ammunition through it, which they can't do through a Glock 21 (G21) / Glock 21SF (G21SF) or Glock 30 (G30) / Glock 30SF (G30SF) .45 ACP pistols, since they do not have fully-supported chambers. One of these rounds is the LeMas Ltd. BMT APLP 85-grain (85gr) .45 CQB round, which has a muzzle velocity of well over 2,000 FPS out of a 5-inch (5") Government Model 1911 pistol, and will penetrate NIJ Level IIIA body armor (bullet-resistant vest) with no problem and devastate the tissue immediately behind it. "BMT APLP" stands for "Blended Metal Technology Armor-Piercing Limited-Penetration".

Kahr Arms PM-9PM-9

Kahr Arms made a splash several years ago with the introduction of small, sturdy, no-nonsense double-action-only (DAO) pistols. The guns featured nested dual recoil springs and stainless steel construction, and they were solid little performers. However, while they were small dimensionally, they were noticeably heavy. That changed when the company began introducing polymer-frame models. The new guns retained all of the virtues of their heavier predecessors, but were lighter and required even less maintenance. Perhaps most notable in Kahr's now extensive line are the PM9 and PM40. The PM series guns - chambered in 9 mm Lugar and .40 S&W - are the company's smallest polymer-frame pistols. The latest version, 9 mm Lugar-cal. M9094A, features a blackened stainless steel slide matched to a black polymer frame.

SKSSKS

The SKS is a Russian 7.62x39mm caliber semi-automatic carbine, designed in 1945 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. SKS is an acronym for Samozaryadniy Karabin sistemi Simonova (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова), 1945 (Self-loading Carbine, Simonov's system, 1945), or SKS 45. The SKS carbine was rather quickly phased out of first-line service, replaced by the AK-47, but remained in second-line service for decades afterwards. It remains a ceremonial arm even today. It was widely exported and produced by the former Eastern Bloc nations, as well as China, where it was designated the "Type 56" (and, in modified form, the "Type 68"), East Germany as the "Karabiner S" and in North Korea as the "Type 63". It is today popular on the civilian surplus market in many countries. The SKS was the first weapon chambered for the 7.62x39mm M43 round later used in the AK-47 and RPK.

 Silver Ruger SR9Ruger SR9

On October 18, 2007, Ruger Firearms introduced a new high-capacity, polymer-frame, striker-fired 9mm pistol called the Ruger SR9 pistol. The new pistol has a capacity of 17+1 rounds (17 in the mag +1 up the pipe). This is welcome news, since DefenseReview happens to like high-capacity, polymer-framed, striker fired pistols in general. We also like the 9mm Parabellum a.k.a. 9mm NATO round (9x19mm), provided you're using quality factory hollowpoints. Why do we like 9mm, because it tends to be less expensive than .40 S&W and .45 ACP and produces less recoil, making it easier to shoot accurately in rapid multiple-shot strings. The lower ammo price and recoil generation make a weapon in this caliber easier to practice with without breaking the bank or your wrist(s) over time. 9mm is simply more pleasurable to shoot, especially if you're shooting a lot. And, with the right factory hollowpoints, it can get the job done for defensive and tactical applications.

 Twin Tokarev TT 30'sTokarev TT 30

In 1930, the Revolutionary Military council approved a resolution to test new small arms to replace its aging Nagant M1895 revolvers[1]. During these test, on January 7, 1931, the potential of a pistol designed by Fedor Tokarev was noted. A few weeks later, 1000 TT-30's were ordered for troop trials, and the pistol was adopted for service in the Red Army[2]. But even as the TT-30 was being put into production, design changes were made to simplify manufacturing. Minor changes to the barrel, disconnector[3], trigger and frame were implemented, the most notable ones being the omission of the removable backstrap and changes to the full-circumference locking lugs. This redesigned pistol was the TT-33[2]. The TT-33 was widely used by Soviet troops during World War II, but did not completely replace the Nagant until that war.

PPSh-41PPSh-41

The PPSh-41(Pistolet-Pulemyot Shpagina)nicknamed "Pah-Pah-sha, Shpagin and Burp Gun" submachine gun was one of the most mass produced weapons of its type of World War II. It was designed by Georgi Shpagin, as an inexpensive alternative to the PPD-40, which was expensive and time consuming to build. The PPSh had a simple blow-back action, a box or drum magazine, and used the 7.62x25mm pistol round. It was made with metal stampings to ease production, and its chrome-lined chamber and bore helped to make the gun very low-maintenance in combat settings.
