CMP receives first shipment of 1911s

CMP announced that they got their first delivery of 8000 1911s. However, the requirement for 1911 building and armory infrastructure will hold up for about 60 days

    January 29, 2018

    The CMP has been authorized to receive 8,000 1911 type pistols from the United States Army.

    The 1911s have been received by the CMP. A complete inventory will be conducted over the course of this week. The pistols will then be securely stored until the Army-approved 1911 building and armory infrastructure is completed. That completion is anticipated to be approximately 60 days from now. Once the 1911 armory is completed, inspection, grading, repair, and ultimately test firing of the pistols will begin. (Please be aware that the CMP was led to believe that we were ready to move forward, but three weeks ago facility requirements were changed, and we are now fulfilling those requirements.)

    The CMP 1911 order packet will be posted 90 days prior to the order acceptance date and opening sales date. No orders will be accepted prior to that date. Please visit, click on the Sales icon then 1911 Information, for the latest. CMP customer service has been inundated with calls and emails concerning the 1911s and no further information is available at this time.

    The CMP will keep everyone posted as we move through this process.

Virtra (and other video) training

Virtra system is a video training system. The system projects video and registers the response a user gives when he pulls the trigger which emits laser.

Why would someone use a laser gun with CO2 gas instead of shooting a real gun? Systems like this is about decision making and adding more realism to one's training. There is no substitute for actual experience, but systems like VirTra can get trainees closer to it.

Shooting at targets on range can only go so far. Adding more to incorporate decision making segment eventually requires more money and resources. Want moving targets? You need to get moving target stands. Most of the stands are stationary, and anything that moves in horizontal direction will require some serious setup. Systems like VirTra allows less average cost to train, while increasing number of various scenarios that can be thrown in.

A famous scenario from VirTra 300. Yes, that is a nut shot.

However, it is not the last level of training before the real experience. Going through a good force-on-force training probably will do a lot more as actors are real humans and there are many different reactions, more than what a video training system can provide. But the problem with force-on-force is setting up a good one, not to mention the cost in the long run. The biggest cost probably would be labor cost for human actors.

Placed in between the range sessions and using force-on-force, video training systems adds more options for training. It is really difficult to find a good force-on-force training. There are some outfits like SureFire Institute that provides a good program, but it's not available to average citizens in a lot of places. Having a video training system is still tougher than finding a shooting range, but there has been more sightings of video training systems and hopefully they will catch on more.

The caveat is that the system operator needs to be competent. System operator can just play scenarioes, but to use correct one and give correct feedback is essential. Anyone can buy a system with enough money, but getting the most out of the system would require understanding of dynamics of gunfight as well as understanding the applicable use of force policy or law.

A scenario is reviewed on VirTra 300.

The advantage of VirTra 300 system is getting close to a 360 degree environment. This allows user to challenge his techniques to break any bad or inadequate habits formed on a square range where there is only one(or limited) direction available. Some train to look left and right after engaging and stopping the first threat, but scenarios on VirTra 300 really puts it to the test.

Recently, Haley Strategic started offering classes using VirTra. There has been some other places such as Artemis Institute offering it as well, and hopefully there will be more quality offering in the future.

Some XM17/18 news

The Office of the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation recently released Fiscal Year 2017 report. The report contained some informations regarding Modular Handgun Systems.

There are some interesting points made about SIG's XM17/18.

During drop testing in which an empty primed cartridge was
inserted, the striker struck the primer causing a discharge.
SIG SAUER implemented an Engineering Change Proposal
(ECP) to correct this deficiency by implementing lightweight
components in the trigger group mechanism.  This fix may
have contributed to the splintering of two triggers during the

Drop testing would have been done in second phase, which didn't happen. SIG Sauer came up with solution which was later implemented for P320. But that solution may have been the reason why there was splintering of two triggers.

Both the XM17 and XM18 pistols experienced
double-ejections where an unspent ball round was ejected
along with a spent round.  Due to the increased frequency of
occurrence during Product Verification Test (PVT), the Army
stood up a root cause analysis team to identify the cause of the
double ejections in parallel with continued PVT.  As of this
report, this analysis is still ongoing.

Also, the report says the pistol had double ejections. This is when the empty casing is ejecting, a live round also ejects with it. Seems impossible, but when magazine lips have problems, this could happen. Furthermore,

The frequency of this occurrence increased
as more rounds were fired through the pistol.

And it seems like XM17 didn't handle the new FMJ round military is using well. The new FMJ/ball round has truncated cone that looks like the Special Purpose ammunition(JHP).

Several reliability stoppages were observed with both the
XM17 and XM18 when shooting ball ammunition.  The ball
ammunition was not included in the IOT&E because of the
demonstrated reliability problems during PVT and the ongoing
root cause analysis.

During PVT, the XM17 with ball ammunition met its
requirement for MRBF but not its requirement for MRBS.
The XM18 with ball ammunition did not meet its MRBF or
MRBS requirement.
-  The XM17 demonstrated 6,944 MRBF (99 percent
-    The XM18 demonstrated 3,906 MRBF (98 percent
-  The XM17 demonstrated 343 MRBS (75 percent
-    The XM18 demonstrated 197 MRBS (61 percent

Army has until Sept. 2018 to decide to go with XM17/18. To those who are more historically knowledgeable, M9 Beretta had some problems of their own during this time. One of the most infamous example is the slide cracking and flying back. This was blamed on metallurgy as well as using ammunition that was far hotter than usual one. Beretta did come up with a solution that will stop the cracked slide from flying back as well.

It will be interesting how this will go. If the SIG Sauer can come up with solutions that address the above problems, it won't have much problem. But if not resolved, it will be interesting development.

Also, user error accounted for 50% and 75% of XM17 and XM18's stoppages, respectively. These were failure of the slide locking back caused by shooter. Remedy is better training.

Welp...not this year

SHOT Show is the industry show and it is the place to be.

Unfortunately, there were some unexpected issues preventing our attendance.

So this year, the coverage will rely on other sources.

Being on the floor and actually seeing new products is definitely something to aim for, but there are times when things don't go the way you want them to go. So just need to adapt and roll with the situation.

Currently, the plan is to cover the show through here and Twitter (

Some SureFire 2018 lights impressions

GNB got a quick chance to see some of new products.


This is an ultra compact weapon light that improves over its predecessor XC1. One of major changes is the ability to use momentary on as well as constant on. Predecessor could only use constant on. To use constant mode, quickly tab the momentary switch. To use momentary mode, just press the tab and hold. Some people might remember Inforce APL's interface, and it feels similar.

The green laser turns on automatically along with the white light


This light emits 500 lumens using one CR123A battery. It uses tailcap switch that emits low light(5 lumens) when pressed slightly, and high output(500 Lumens) when fully pressed. This feature is a nice feature that makes it easy for user in non-threatening situation to quickly up the light output if things go bad.

It also has a clip that allows it to be carried with bezel up or down in your pocket.

If someone wants a light for casual use, but can be used for more dangerous situation, this should be a serious contender.


This light has 5/800 Lumen output. Bezel can be rotated to have 800 Lumen or 5 Lumen. The tailcap switch is momentary, and can have constant on mode by twisting it.

Some other info

  • MASTERFIRE holsters come with screw holes compatible with Safariland mounts. Earlier productions didn't have that.
  • Some light models were going to be dropped, but that has been postponed for now.
  • SureFire tends to take conservative approach with adopting new batteries. But that doesn't mean they are not going to ignore them.
  • Some countries have law prohibiting use of weapon lights. So wristlight was the solution that SureFire came up with.
