THE OTHER PISTOLS OF THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT

The M11 And a Supporting Cast
By SOF

While the M9 (night-time qualification pictured left) gets most of the attention among pistols used by the United States military, it is not the only such pistol used. The United States military has other pistols in service, some of which are old, some not so old.

One of the more common pistols aside from the M9 is the M11. Like the M9, it is a variation on a European “wondernine” pistol. While the M9 was based on the Beretta Model 92, the M11 is  based on the SIG Sauer P228. Both pistols fire the 9x19mm NATO round, but their standard magazines are different: The M9 uses a 15-round magazine, while the M11 used a 13-round magazine. The M11A1, first issued in 2012, went with a 15-round magazine.

SERBU’S .50 CALIBER BFG 50A

Breaking the Ice in a Big Way!
By Gary Paul Johnston

It’s no secret that long-range rifles in .50 BMG caliber (12.7x99mm) are the rage for competition, as well as law enforcement roles. Generally weighing between 20 and 40 pounds, these big bore rifles are semi-portable, and not for the faint of heart. Without efficient muzzle brakes, “.50s” could hardly be fired from the shoulder, and even with the best brakes, there is no mistaking that you are behind a big gun!

The .50 calibers come in a variety of operating systems, including single shots, bolt action repeaters and self-loading. Some of the single-shot .50s are actually conversions that replace the upper receiver groups of an AR-15 lower receiver, and these can be had in both single shot and bolt action repeaters, the latter having the magazine protrude out the left side and eject out the right.
