Guns SHOT16: New Railscales Textures Recoil Staff January 18, 2016 Join the Conversation You will be seeing some new Railscales textures (@railscales) this week, both during Media Day at the Range and on display in more than one booth on the SHOT Show floor. The new Railscales have been redesigned to be both lighter and more sleek (not that they were anything but sleek and close in tight to the bore before) — a not inconsiderable 33% thinner, to the tune of 0.125in. Railscales is clearly not about the girth. There will be an updated Honeycomb texture as well as a new Dragon and Tenderizer style. They'll be offering 4- and 6-hole options where previously there were only 3- and 5-, and they'll be introducing a polymer version as well. Interestingly, they initially thought the polymer RS panels might be slightly less effective than the G10 models, but initial tests seem to indicate they'll be just as effective or even better. More testing is required. “I”m gonna try to melt 'em on a machine gun,” RS told us. We're looking forward to the imagery and video from when they do. ———– Follow us on Instagram, @RECOILmagazine and keep an eye out for these hashtags: #recoilmagazine, #recoil, #shotshow2016, #mediadayattherange and especially #recoilSHOT2016.

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 right here. 2016 SHOT Show January 18 — Media on the Range (numerous shooting facilities in and around Las Vegas) January 19–22, 2016 Sands Expo and Convention Center Las Vegas, Nevada Hours: Tuesday, January 19 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 20 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Thursday, January 21 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Friday, January 22 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Explore RECOILweb:World War I: The Birth of the Modern Black GunTops Knives Micro Hawk EDCFirst Tactical: A Second Round of Tactix BackpacksOur take on the Xfunctional Pant AR, an Everyday Tactical Pant from Arc'teryx NEXT STEP: Download Your Free Target Pack from RECOILFor years, RECOIL magazine has treated its readers to a full-size (sometimes full color!) shooting target tucked into each big issue.
