SHOT16: Angstadt 9mm PDW + Blowndeadline

Angstadt Arms first unveiled their 9mm Glock compatible AR at last year's SHOT Show in pistol form and it made a great first impression. This year they're back and have taken it up a notch with their entry into the PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) market. Presenting the Angstadt Arms PDW.


A baseline PDW features an MVB Industries ARC stock and has an entry price of $1599. It is considered an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) and will require an ATF Form 4 transfer. The good news is you no longer need a trust thanks to 41p. Angstadt also has pistol versions available with the KAK Shockwave system.

Angstadt utilizes standard 9mm Glock magazines and features an integrated mag release system into the lower, keeping the profile slim. The rail is ultralight and comes standard with Keymod attachment points.


The bad-ass rendition on display at Shot Show was done by none other than Cerakote Master Michael Sigouin of Blowndeadline. I may just have to do a gun in this color scheme.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
