SHOT Show 2017: New Gear from Caldwell

Here’s what they said about them.

1. Caldwell Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader

Caldwell Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader

The new Caldwell Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader works on almost any style pistol magazine. It works with both single-stack and double-stack magazines, and will load 9mm, 10mm, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, .45 cal ammo, and some .380 magazines. The design is simple to use; simply drop a round in and squeeze the hand grip to load the magazine. The Mag Charger Universal Pistol loader removes the need to ever manually reload a pistol magazine again.

  • Robust polycarbonate construction that’s built to last
  • Ergonomic die cast aluminum handle for easy use and “no flex” operation
  • Adjustable side shims align magazines of any width for optimal use
  • Lock knob keeps virtually any size magazine secure

2. Caldwell Pic Rail Fixed XLA Bipod

Caldwell Pic Rail Fixed XLA Bipod

The new Caldwell Pic Rail Fixed XLA Bipod provides a stable shooting platform that conveniently attaches to almost any pic rail forearm. These bipods feature adjustable leg height to easily achieve perfect positioning. The light-weight, collapsible aluminum design makes the Pic Rail Fixed XLA Bipod ideal for leaving on a firearm and transporting with the bipod still attached.

  • Available in two models: 6”-9” model and 9”-13” model
  • Adjustable cam lever lock for quick deployment or release
  • Integrated 1.5” long pic rail clamps directly to gun’s pic or quad rail
  • Soft rubber feet for enhanced stability

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
