Guns [SHOT Show 2017] JP Enterprises GMR-15 Industry News January 26, 2017 Join the Conversation Hugo, MN based JP Enterprises released their GMR-15 not too long ago. They describe it as an, “…updated version of their…9mm carbine” (GMR-13). They tell us they revised the lower receiver, upgraded the mag release and flared the magwell. We're loving the continued release of pistol caliber carbines. Here’s what they have to say about it. SHOT Show 2017: JP Enterprises GMR-15 Our best-selling GMR-13 set our reputation in the 9mm carbine market as “the one that works.” With the newly redesigned GMR-15, we’ve taken everything that works and only added more. Last round lock back, an improved magazine release and a flared mag. well are the highlight features of this new receiver. If you’re in the market for solid home defense carbine or PCC game gun now, your timing couldn’t be better. The GMR-15 9mm is a versatile platform that excels in both function and accuracy. Complete carbine builds are available with either our forged JP-15 or GMR-15 dual-charging upper that includes our 9mm Silent Captured Spring standard. The end result is a system that cycles with virtually no recoil. That equates to extremely fast sight recovery with solid 3 MOA accuracy from a pistol cartridge usable out to 100 yards. With the high-performance ammunition available from many manufacturers, the GMR-15 makes a solid choice for a competitive match carbine (especially considering the cost savings of 9mm ammo over .223) and is also well-suited to home defense applications given its impressive .357 magnum-comparable ballistics with a carbine-length barrel. The lack of concussion in enclosed spaces and greatly limited over-penetration issues when compared to most rifle cartridges only enhance its suitability in this arena. Designed with the needs of law enforcement in mind, the GMR-15 accepts the same G17 pistol magazines as Glock 9mm pistols for carbine/sidearm compatibility. Complete military and law enforcement packages include our own JP select-fire trigger setup for precision trigger control in both semi- and full-auto modes. As with all JP rifles, the GMR-15 comes with parts and service readily available from a trusted US manufacturer. JP Enterprises was founded by John Paul. He states his first gun was a Daisy Red Ryder. Now, he’s not only a recreational shooter, but a competitive one. He says he goes by the policy “If you’re not happy, I’m not happy.” If you’d like to learn more about JP Enterprises, click here. For a direct link to the GMR-15, click here.

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 View imagery from our coverage of last year's SHOT Show here; 2015's is right here.
