48 POLICE JANUARY 2019 BECAUSE OF THE ANNUAL SHOOTING HUNTING AND OUTDOOR TRADE (SHOT) SHOW, January is a good time to get a look at the newest firearms for law enforcement operations. Here's some of what we expect to see at the show and in your arsenals this year. DYNAMIC MUNITIONS Dynamic Munitions' line of AR-variant rifles includes a wide variety of models. e DM-15 is the company's flagship preci- sion rifle in 5.56mm NATO. Features of the DM-15 include: a titanium gas block/stainless steel gas tube, a Mil-Spec lower re- ceiver, Mil-Spec upper receiver with M4A4 flat top and M4 feed ramp, 16-inch stainless steel cryogenically frozen barrel, JMT Saber trigger, Magpul CTR buttstock, Magpul MOE+ pistol grip, and 15-inch Dynamic Munitions aluminum free float M-LOK handguard. e top-of-the-line rifle in the Dy- namic Munitions line is the DM-6.5. Built to get the most out of the 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge, the DM-6.5 is a high-performance precision rifle de- signed to be accurate to 1,000 yards or more out of the box, the company says. https://dynamicmunitions.com/ FN In November, FN America released the FN SCAR 20S precision rifle, which is based on the FN MK20 SSR or Sniper Support Rifle currently fielded within USSOCOM. e 7.62x51mm-chambered rifle has been pur- pose-built to achieve superior long- range accuracy. FN says the new pre- cision rifle achieves 1-MOA (minute of angle) accuracy to 100 yards with match-grade ammunition out of the box. e 20-inch, 1:12 twist, heav y profile barrel and barrel extension, and extended, monolithic re- ceiver add the additional rigidity that reduces fluctuation or movement between shots while the extended receiver provides rail space for optics. e custom-designed MK20 SSR buttstock adjusts to length of pull and comb height to customize the fit to each shooter while in the prone firing po- sition, and the factory-installed, double-stage Geissele Super SCAR trigger achieves a 3.5- to 4.5-pound trigger pull. On the handgun side, FN has expanded its line of FN 509 pistols with a tactical model. e FN 509 Tactical has a thread- ed barrel for suppressors and features the company's pat- ent-pending Low-Profile Optics Mounting System. FN says the Low-Profile Optics Mounting System enables the platform to accept most commercially available miniature red dot optics and remain adaptable to future optics releases with no require- ment of direct milling of the slide. Late last year FN also announced a new 509 Training pistol. e training pistol is a completely non-firing red- framed version of the 509 that can be used to acclimate new shooters to safe firearm handling, presentation, and holstering before they move to a live firearm. It features a redesigned fire control assembly that resets the trigger each time it is pulled without FN's latest firearms are the FN 509 Tactical and optics ready duty gun with threaded barrel and the SCAR 20S precision rifle. Glock's G45 duty pistol is a crossover with a full-size frame and a 4-inch compact slide. LAW ENFORCEMENT FIREARMS 2019 From precision rifles to pocket pistols, gun makers will be offering a wide variety of new police tools this year. J DAVID GRIFFITH
