Strike Industries is known for affordable, go-fast parts and accessories for the AR-15, Glock, and other popular platforms. At SHOT Show 2020, Strike announced that they’re expanding into some additional categories as well — complete guns, 80 percent pistol frames, and red dot optics. Plus, they released yet more rifle, pistol, and shotgun accessories.

Strike’s Sentinel AR-15 rifles and pistols are the first serialized, complete firearms that they’ve offered for sale. They’ll come in 3 versions — the Sentinel Elite AR rifle, Sentinel AR rifle, and Sentinel AR pistol. The Elite rifle and AR pistol are pictured below. The Sentinel Elite AR rifle features a nitrided 16-inch, 1:8 twist, 416 stainless, cold hammer forged barrel with a .223 Wylde chamber. Strike appears to have loaded it up with its entire parts catalog of enhanced parts and accessories, including a 15.5-inch handguard, compensator, extended charging handle, safety selector, billet trigger guard, bolt catch, and so on. The Sentinel AR pistol has a 10.5-inch, chromoly, 1:8 twist barrel with .223 Wylde chamber. It has some additional goodies as well. Both guns weigh a little over 6 pounds. MSRPs will be $1,500 for the Elite rifle and $850 for the pistol.


Strike also worked with Polymer80 to spec out a 80 percent Glock 19-compatible pistol frame of their own design, with an undercut and contoured trigger guard, scallops on the side of the grip, ribbed front and back straps, texturing on the sides of the grip, “gas pedal” cut outs for your support thumb, and a flared and notched mag well. It’s a nice design that incorporates the sort of enhancements that folks look for on custom Glock builds. MSRP is expected to be about $150 for the 80-percent frame (including the jig and tooling). Depending on how the initial offering is received, Strike may offer a complete, serialized pistol later in the year.


The Benelli M2 is one of our favorite shotguns, famed for its reliability and very forgiving maintenance schedules. But it’s not too welcoming of accessories. Strike’s replacement handguard is made of aluminum and makes it easy to attach accessories such as lights, lasers, or sling mounts. MSRP will be $125.

Like numerous other companies, Strike is also getting into the optics game. They’ve spec’ed out a 20mm red dot sight they’re calling the Scouter. The 6061 aluminum housing features a T-1 mounting footprint and pushbutton controls to control brightness of the 2-MOA dot. Strike says that it’ll go 25,000 hours on a single CR2032 battery at brightness level 5 (out of 11). The sample we viewed looked pretty bright when cranked all the way to 11. The sight will automatically power off after 2 hours when left motionless and will remember your last brightness setting when turned back on. It has 65 MOA of adjustment with 0.5 MOA clicks. MSRP is still TBD.


Next up is Strike’s new adjustable scope mount. While it doesn’t sport quick detach capability, the scope ring assembly sits on a dovetail so that you can slide it forward and backwards to dial in the eye relief that you need. Bolts secure it in place at pre-drilled intervals, so it adjusts in increments. It comes with 30mm rings with 1-inch reducers; Strike is working on a 34mm version. It’s made of 7250 aluminum, one-upping those constructed of 7075. MSRP will be $130.


The CZ Scorpion platform has been getting some love from various accessory makers. Strike’s also on the bandwagon, with an extended magazine release, a trimmer safety selector for those who find the factory selector bothersome, and a grip that’s more vertically-oriented than the steeply-raked factory grip. MSRP is still TBD.


For CZ P10 fans, Strike has magazine extensions which add an additional 4 or 5 rounds of capacity (40 and 9mm, respectively). MSRP is $16.


Strike also announced an AR-15 magazine, a polymer 33-rounder that’ll come in black and tan for around $15 MSRP.

Finally, for your viewing pleasure are some of Strike’s prototypes of various grip modules for the SIG P320. These aren’t ready for production yet, but provide a taste of what’s to come.
