Review of the Remington RP9 Full-Sized 9mm Pistol



Review of the Remington RP9 Full-Sized 9mm Pistol

The majority of the handgun market today is made up of full-sized, polymer-framed, striker-fired pistols. That Remington is now introducing a pistol to compete in that market should come as no surprise for that reason alone. Recall that when Remington introduced the R1 1911 in 2011, the corporation dove headfirst into the manufacture of pistols. The RP9 is the name of this brand-new polymer-framed pistol from Remington. But it’s not being constructed in Ilion, New York, where Remington has long called home. Instead, the company’s brand-new plant in Huntsville, Alabama, produces the Remington RP9.

For Remington, the RP9 was a significant undertaking that took some years to complete. A prototype of this weapon was in my hands more than two years ago. I bring this up to refute any ideas that Remington hurried this gun to market. Remington had to build this platform from scratch because it was an entirely new technology. Remington genuinely wanted to wait till the company had it right before making the announcement.

Remington’s Resurrection
Prior to its commercial introduction, Remington launched and distributed the R51 pistol a few years ago. Since then, Remington has concentrated on enhancing its procedure for launching new products. Just before the RP9 was released, I had the chance to tour the new Huntsville plant, and I was inspired by what I saw. New procedures have been put in place to end production issues, and everyone I came into contact with had the mindset that things should be done well or not at all.

These protocols call for testing throughout the design phase to confirm a sound design and ongoing high-round-count testing to confirm the finished product. The lead engineer for the RPTE9 project, Glen Sietsema, stated that “there are even more structured design validation processes, including cross-functional review of the final product, review of the internal manufacturing process, and the utilisation of defined supplier quality-control systems in place now at Remington.”

Additionally, prior to the introduction of each new product, there is a lot more contact between the Remington engineering and manufacturing teams and the business development and sales team, according to Sietsema. This is done to ensure Remington keeps its promises to its clients and provides products that function as promised.

I ultimately returned from Huntsville with a rekindled belief in Remington. The business is dedicated to honourably upholding the title of America’s first gun manufacturer. And many Alabamans from the South are working to make it happen. Play Tide!

Having Impact
The following are Sietsema’s original design objectives for the Remington RP9: It had to be striker-fired, have a polymer grip housing, and have some particular advantages over the crowded market of rival products. A high capacity, a grip circumference that would fit 95% of shooters, PVD coatings on the slide and barrel, and a modular grip frame were also incorporated into the initial design specifications.

The new Remington RP9 satisfies every need from the outset, but it goes above and beyond by adding extra features that shooters value in duty-sized handguns. A precision-machined barrel for improved accuracy, a Picatinny accessory rail, small, medium, and large interchangeable backstraps, an optimised grip angle to aid in instinctive pointing and lessen felt recoil, a rear sight designed to aid in emergency one-handed slide manipulations, and a tactile loaded-chamber indicator are among these features.

If you were to read this long list of characteristics, you might think that someone had created the ideal fighting handgun. However, I don’t think it exists. This is due in part to the fact that what is “perfect” for one person may not be perfect for another, as well as the fact that perfection is and always ought to be an improbable aim for any activity. However, the search of perfection never ends, and with each step made in that direction, we learn and get a little bit closer, unlike others who sit back in their easy chairs and turn their noses up at anything new in the firearms industry.

Practical Evaluation
A fighting handgun should be used in actual combat as its true test. My days of battling are over, and I’d like them to stay that way. The only thing left is to subject the firearms I examine to actual assessments. That’s what I did, with some assistance from a 16-year-old girl called Brittany Long who just so happens to be a sponsored and successful 3-Gun competitor.

I let Brittany shoot another 50 rounds to get comfortable with the handgun’s feel and trigger after I put 100 rounds of Hornady’s American Gunner ammunition through the pistol to make sure it would fire. Then I let her go onto a plate rack from the MGM Steel Challenge. And allow me to add a little off-topic information here: If I had been able to shoot as well as this 16-year-old when I was 16, I would already be well-known. In other words, Brittany is a skilled gun operator!

I wish I could claim the gun was flawless, and for the most part, it was. When seating the first round from fully filled magazines, we occasionally ran into problems. Brittany fired nearly a dozen fully loaded magazines, and while it didn’t happen every time, the top bullet did not feed a few times. I believe that the magazines’ rigidity and newness were the only factors at play. (These magazines are a holdover from the high-capacity 9mm pistols made by Para-Ordnance.) And although I can’t guarantee it, the condition hasn’t returned after 500 rounds have been fired through the gun.

Celebrating Remington’s 200th Anniversary
Brittany observed that the grip was incredibly comfortable for her and that the recoil was minimal. She also enjoyed the trigger. Regarding the trigger, I agreed with her appraisal; it was smooth to pull and would be impossible to miss the reset. However, I experienced the same issue with the Remington RP9’s grip as I do with a Glock. My shooting hand’s middle finger’s knuckle makes touch with the triggerguard’s rear radius. I find it uncomfortable to shoot the handgun because of this. In order to be completely honest, I should say that I have only ever heard this criticism from a very small percentage of other shooters. Your mileage may vary depending on your hand.

I could operate the trigger, magazine release, and slide lock without adjusting my grip, unlike my smaller-handed teenage aide. (I recognise that this is how many shooters have been trained, even though I don’t think the slide should be released by depressing the slide stop.)

The Remington RP9 shot exceptionally well from the benchrest, producing groups that averaged less than 2 inches wide for 15 five-shot groups using three different loads. The testing of various loads revealed yet another issue. The 115-grain FMJs from Sig Sauer were disliked by the RP9. Three times during the firing of the ammunition from the box, a cartridge nose-dived into the built-in feed ramp at the bottom of the barrel. However, 500 rounds of Remington’s Golden Saber ammunition and 100 rounds of Browning’s 147-grain FMJ ammunition both passed through the RP9 without a hitch. I wish I had more of the Sig ammo to test in different pistols to determine whether the problem lay with the ammo or the weapon.

For Whom Is It?
The Remington RP9 is a large pistol from any angle. Nearly 1.2 inches broad, the slide. It may be a bit big for those searching for a dedicated concealed-carry weapon. However, the RP9 holds a lot of ammo, is soft shooting, and has the best trigger of any polymer-framed handgun for shooters who enjoy competing in combat-style shooting events. It is almost everyone’s perfect first handgun or home defence pistol because of these qualities and its modular grip. Furthermore, it should be obvious that the RP9 is the appropriate tool for police work. Cops come in a variety of sizes and shapes, just like the rest of the human species.

It’s also fairly simple to disassemble the RP9. Starting with a handgun that is not loaded, lock the slide to the rear, turn the takedown lever, and then slowly move the slide forward while holding it. The slide should then be removed from the frame after fully pulling the trigger to the rear and holding it there. Remove the seized recoil spring and barrel to finish field-stripping the weapon. Install the barrel and recoil spring, slide it onto the frame, and turn the takedown lever to put it back together. With a little practise, you can disassemble the pistol and reassemble it in less than 30 seconds.

What is the Remington RP9’s verdict in the end? It will also be offered in.45 ACP, which some people would like. Sietsema responded, “Too early to tell,” when questioned about the 10mm or.40 S&W variations. Depending on consumer demand, the.40 is a possibility. We have a lot of design ideas, so other projects can get priority.

He was a little more comforting when I questioned him about compact models as well. I believe the success of the full-sized gun will ultimately determine the direction of future versions.

The Remington RP9 shoots accurately. With +P ammunition, you can fire round after round without growing weary (if the knuckle on your middle finger is smaller than mine). The RP9 has one of the greatest triggers I’ve ever pulled for a polymer handgun, contains a lot of ammunition—almost a full box of self-defense bullets. Those of us who shoot frequently are well aware that the trigger action of either a rifle or a pistol is its most crucial component, as Jeff Cooper put it.

The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol



The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol

The new TRS Comp pistol from Nighthawk Custom is a full-sized, government frame 9mm double stack built around a match grade barrel and a monolithic slide. It’s built to compete and starts at $4,599.

The TRS Comp comes standard with a recon rail under the barrel and a dimpled rear cocking design that offers ample traction when racking the slide. It also sports unique dimpled frame and slide textures that match the grip pattern.

Integrated Compensator

The TRS Comp is Nighthawk Custom’s first full-size pistol designed around a double stack frame. It features a 17+1 capacity and incorporates Nighthawk’s Fire Hawk compensator, which boasts a precision-designed port that reduces muzzle flip for quicker follow up shots.

This model also features a unique dimpling texture found throughout the slide and grip, which provides ample grip while being snag-free during holstering. The TRS Comp uses a 14K gold bead front sight that does an excellent job catching light, coupled with a Heinie Ledge Black rear sight for quick target acquisition.

The pistol also features Nighthawk Customs’ Interchangeable Optic System (IOS), which is a dedicated dovetail machined onto the slide and allows for optic mounting with adapters. This system allows for an interchangeable series of sight options to quickly switch rear sights in a matter of seconds.

Interchangeable Optic System

Nighthawk Custom’s Interchangeable Optic System allows a user to switch from a plate with a traditional rear sight to a red-dot optic in seconds. This feature is especially beneficial for concealed-carry practitioners who want to train with a red-dot but still carry a traditional rear sight.

Nighthawk’s unique IOS system involves milling the top rear section of their slide to interface with an interchangeable series of sight options, including a Trijicon RMR and other red-dot sights. This low-profile system also incorporates a suppressor-height rear sight as a backup to the optic’s front sight.

The TRS Comp features a match grade 5.00′′ barrel on a government sized frame with a monolithic slide, a full-length dust cover and an integrated single-port compensator. This combination reduces muzzle flip and delivers faster follow-up shots on the range, a must-have for competitive shooters.

The TRS Comp is finished in black nitride for a sleek, durable look. The lightweight aluminum trigger possesses a serrated flat face and a gold bead front sight does an excellent job catching light, providing quick target acquisition. A Heinie Ledge Black rear sight completes the package.

Match Grade Barrel

One of the most important features of any match pistol is a properly fitted barrel. A true match grade barrel will have zero play in the muzzle or at the hood, and it should glide into battery smoothly without any drag or snag on the slide.

This is achieved by carefully fitting the barrel to all of the chamber hood contact surfaces and the lower locking lug. Once this is done it will have a true target fit and shoot groups that rival a 1911 handgun.

The TRS Comp is the first Nighthawk Custom model to be designed around a double stack frame, offering 17+1 capacity and using their integrated compensator, the fire hawk. The compensator has a precision port that reduces muzzle flip and helps shooters stay on target for follow up shots.

Unique Dimpled Texture

The TRS Comp is the newest addition to Nighthawk’s line up. It is a high-end double stack 1911 that packs a 17+1 punch, as well as a lot of style and class. It also happens to be the most accurate and durable gun in its caliber. It also comes in a variety of colors and finishes, from matte black to high-shine chromium. Its crown jewel is the aforementioned patented integrated compensator, which may be the best thing to happen to your sidearm in years. It is a real head turner, especially for those who don’t usually opt for the sexy gun. The aforementioned gizmo is accompanied by a precision designed port in the rear of the slide that reduces muzzle flip without sacrificing a hefty amount of power. The aforementioned gizmo features a matching name badge aft of the slide, as well as a match-grade 5″ barrel and a full-length dust cover with accompanying nifty-fun accessory rail.

AGP Arms PC Charger Brace



AGP Arms PC Charger Brace

The PC Charger is a pistol chambered in 9mm, and it can take Glock magazines. It is very popular and has become more of a sought-after gun than the original carbine.

Many owners of the PC Charger equip it with a brace to give it stability. This makes it a lot more shootable.

Ruger PC Charger

Ruger’s PC Charger is a pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) that combines the fun and utility of an AR style pistol with the reliability and accuracy of a high capacity AR. Designed to take both Ruger Security 9 and Glock magazines, the PC Charger is a highly customizable weapon that makes a great range gun or home defense tool.

Adding a brace to the PC Charger increases its stability and makes it more shootable. The brace can be attached to the MIL STD 1913 rail on the back of the pistol.

The SB Tactical FS1913 Brace is one of the best PC Charger braces available today. It is made of a polymer material that offers quick deployment and a lightweight profile.

This brace is perfect for a shooter who is new to pistol braces, and is looking for a compact and inexpensive option. It is also a good choice for people who are already familiar with the design and use of a buffer tube.

AGP Arms

The AGP Arms brace kit for the Ruger PC Charger is the best way to upgrade the standard stock and barrel. The brace is the logical extension of AGP’s acclaimed pistol grip Gen 2 stock and handguard, allowing users to customize their pc charger to their own specifications. The brace is the brainchild of a dedicated team of military and law enforcement personnel, many of whom have been in the trenches for longer than most of us will ever know. Featuring a modern twist on a classic design, the brace is an understated delight. Its most prominent feature is a cleverly engineered gearbox that enables the user to rotate the entire gun by hand, and then lock it into place using a single pin. The aforementioned pin is mounted in the rear of the gun, where it is tucked under a protective cover for safekeeping. In keeping with the aforementioned design, the brace is also anodized black for a look you can be proud of.

SB Tactical

SB Tactical is the inventor of pistol stabilizing braces. They were started in 2012 by Army veteran Alex Bosco after he designed a brace for his disabled friend so he could continue to shoot.

SB Tactical was the first to introduce adjustable pistol stabilizing braces. This was a big win for the industry and gun owners alike.

After getting pre approval from the ATF, they began selling pistol braces for AR/AK style firearms, CZ Scorpions, H&K MP5 designs, 1913 rails, and more.

The SBA3 is one of the best pistol braces on the market and offers 5-position adjustable adjustment, ambidextrous QD sling attachment points, and a Velcro strap to connect to your arm for one-handed shooting.

The SBA4 is another great choice and offers a sturdy M4-style strut, 5-position adjustable, and an integral QD sling socket. This is an excellent option for a Ruger PC Charger gun with a Glock drum, but it also works well on any pistol without a buffer tube.

Midwest Industries

Midwest Industries is a family owned and operated company that manufactures quality parts, uppers, lowers, rails, barrels, furniture and muzzle devices for AR platforms and many other firearms. They also have a number of innovative products and services that make them a great choice for those looking to upgrade their firearms.

Probably the most useful item that they manufacture is their Combat Rail Handguard in hard coat anodized 6061 aluminum. It features eight functional M-LOK slots and two anti-rotation sling swivels. Its hefty price tag might be a turn off, but its high performance and robust construction is well worth the outlay.

What you might not have known is that they also make the pc charger brace aka the FS1913. Basically the same as the name aforementioned but a lot more durable and the brace actually folds to a compact size for easy transport. They even include a nice looking sling with an integrated bottle opener to boot.

Mini Mamba – A YouTube Star With a Net Worth of $1-5 Million



Mini Mamba

Mini Mamba is a famous YouTube Star who has earned a fortune as a professional. He has a net worth of $1-5 Million at the age of 11 years old.

Mambas are venomous snakes of the family Elapidae, which also includes coral snakes and cobras. They live throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Black mamba

Black mambas are venomous snakes that are found in Africa. They can grow to up to 14 feet in length and are one of the longest venomous snakes in the world.

They are very fast and aggressive, and their venom is particularly deadly for humans. It takes only about 20 minutes for a bite from a black mamba to kill a person.

They live in grassland, savanna and rocky slopes of southern and eastern Africa. They are primarily diurnal and prey on small rodents. They have excellent vision and a highly developed sense of smell.

Green mamba

Green mambas are found in coastal areas of eastern Africa including Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and South Africa. These snakes are venomous, which makes them extremely dangerous to humans.

They are a diurnal species, which means they are active during the day. They also spend a great deal of time in the trees and rainforests of western Africa, where they live amongst the forest canopy and thickets.

This snake preys on birds, lizards and small mammals. Its venom isn’t as powerful as the venom of the black mamba or the red mamba, but it can still kill.

Green mambas breed during the rainy season. Females lay eggs, which hatch in about 10-12 weeks. Males seek out and compete for females by following a scent trail or by wrestling or dancing. These combats aren’t biting, but rather a way for the two snakes to establish dominance over each other.

Red mamba

The red mamba is a species of snake that lives in Africa. It is related to the black mamba and can be found in various countries throughout the continent.

It is a medium-sized snake that can grow to be 2 m long. They are mainly found in tree hollows and termite mounds.

They are very venomous and kill their prey quickly. Their venom is highly toxic and can affect the breathing, heart and muscle function of the victim.

They can also paralyze their prey, which they then swallow. They feed primarily on birds and small mammals.

Yellow mamba

The mamba is an African snake. There are four species: black mamba, green mamba, red mamba and yellow mamba.

The Eastern green mamba (Dendroaspis angusticeps), formerly known as the white-mouthed mamba, is a venomous snake that lives in coastal regions of East Africa. It is found from Kenya south through Tanzania, Malawi, and eastern Zambia.

The eastern green mamba is a shy snake that avoids humans when possible and only strikes if provoked or cornered. Its habitat is fragmented in parts of its range and it is listed as Vulnerable by South Africa due to habitat destruction and deforestation.

Blue mamba

Mambas are notorious for their speed and aggression, and they come in a wide variety of species. They are a common sight in Africa’s rainforests, and all have deadly venom.

Of the four types of mambas, the most venomous and dangerous is the black mamba. Known for its lightning-fast speed, erratic behavior, and painful bite, it can strike multiple times in a matter of seconds.

Its venom is highly neurotoxic and cardiotoxic, with fasciculins present to paralyze the muscles of a bite victim. The venom can kill a victim within hours of a bite.
