Yes, this is big. As you might've guessed, writers like me run from booth to booth trying to get the newest information about new innovations. At best, I have 10 minutes to visit. This year when Linda Powell sat down with me to give me the rundown of new Mossberg products, I thanked her and was getting ready to leave when she told me they had a new trigger. This was surprising— Mossberg usually makes complete guns, not accessories. "Yes, it's the JM PRO Match Trigger. You know, Jerry Miculek?" she asked. Yeah, I know Jerry, he's one of the greatest shoot- ers who ever covered down behind a firearm. Linda pointed to the sample trigger in front of me, a 4 pound, drop- in trigger for an AR-15. It…was… incredible. Mossberg's trigger game is strong, very strong. Knives Everyone knows that I can't talk about tradeshows without looking at knives. I've also been accused of fawning over knives that some users wouldn't put on patrol because of the price. I thought I'd start out with a very affordable deal. Adventure Knives introduced the $38 PROPK7, that uses 440HC steel and G-10 scales. It's definitely a bargain knife, but it will take a good amount of abuse. This blade feels great in the hand. Benchmade is celebrating the 10 th anniversary of the Infidel with a S30V version that sports raw aluminum handles. It ships with a Benchmade challenge coin. If you are familiar with Geissele Triggers, they had an interesting offshoot from the company this year in Abraham and Moses Survival Equipment. Abraham and Moses are Bill Geissele's sons, who have formed a separate company. The first product is a Lou Goodman Special Operations Combat Knife, of PD1 steel. This fixed blade is 5.655" and it has very unusual sheath with several interesting advantages, including ambidextrous and airborne configurations. Some of our readers have the same penchant for handmade knives as I do. I stopped by to see some of the newer ones from Darrell Ralph, a custom knife maker known for his Dominator, a folding flipper whose blade is thicker than a standard bayo- net. They are made one at a time, so if you need to ask "how much," consider a production knife. The Dominators that DDR had on dis- play did not disappoint. Introduced earlier this year, First Tactical brought their Diamondback Knife, which comes in Tanto and Spear design. This knife is notable, because it is very inexpensive (MSRP $64) and they use Thumb Bridge Technology, a strip of metal that sits atop the blade spine, giving the thumb a pretty good purchase, and a lot of surface to get the blade out, even while wearing gloves. Benchmade celebrated its 10th year anniversar y of the Infidel (3300BK-1701), their double-action out the front automatic, with a billet aluminum 6061-T6 bright finish handle and a commemorative challenge coin.
