The North Sylva Report

2018 Looking Good For Imports

Words By: Wally F.          Photos By: Wally F.

 

……….North Sylva has been in the Canadian firearms scene for over 60 years. It’s said that one in five firearms sold in Canada are imported by them. Being a distributor for Colt Canada, H&K, IWI, FN America, KRISS, and a whole bunch of other manufacturers, I won’t touch on every single new thing coming up, but I’ll hit all the points folks hopefully are looking for. I’m not going to make you read all the way to the end of the article to get the answers to a whole bunch of peoples questions. IWI had a great booth at SHOT Show this year. There was a ton of talk around the TS-12 Semi-auto 15+1 shotgun, the Tavor 7 .308 battle rifle, and the Masada 9mm striker fire pistol (although not on display at SHOT).

Wolverine Supplies is Bringing Some New Hotness Back To An Oldie

Kodiak Defense WK180C Aiming To Cure Your Summer Time Blues

Words by: Wally F.          Photos by: Wally F.

 

……….In America in late 1960’s and early 1970’s the Armalite AR-18 design was powered off of a short-stroke gas piston system that allowed for a very compact build that had recoil springs in the receiver instead of in the butt stock. This allowed for folding stocks to shorten it’s overall length but still function properly. In 2003 ArmaLite introduced a model featuring a polymer lower receiver, this rifle the AR-180-B, accepted AR-15 trigger groups, magazine releases, and magazines. The AR-180-B received poor sales worldwide and wasn’t adopted readily, as a result in 2007 production was discontinued.
