7. Harris Bipods - was showing a sample bipod with MLOK-attach, this feature will be available on S-BR, S-BR2, S-L, and S-L2 models

8. Ivey Shooting - I spoke with Stephen Ivey about his upcoming "Adjustable Riser Rail" (imagine their current 200 MOA/60 MRAD scope mount with an integral 0 MOA/0 MRAD Pic rail in place of scope rings - intended to provide improved scope objective-to-barrel clearance on long barrel ELR rifles; there will be color options(as is the case with the current integrated-rings models); pricing will be the same as current models, available by Summer. Pics to follow.

9. Parker-Trutec - has added an improved nitriding process, "Isonite Li2 Fe3", data at https://www.parkertrutec.com/service/isonite-li2fe3-nitriding/

10. Stealth Vision - was showing their new "SVX 5-30x56" scope, Japanese glass, 34mm tube, 100 MOA elevation; details, pics, and pricing at https://stealthvision.com/products/scope

11, (the New) Stiller - I spoke with Derrick Ratliff, VP of Ratliff Traditions, dba Horizon Firearms, the new owners of Stiller Actions; he mentioned the current development of a new 338 LM-capable action (lighter and more focused on hunting), and an updated "TAC DRIVER" (previously-identified TAC 408) action (with integrated recoil lug and optional integrated Pic rail - the continuation of the current 1.450 model is being assessed since most purchasers are opting for the 1.600 version). He further noted that they are making large investments in equipment and facilities, including moving to a new plant later this year - the focus being on drastically reducing lead times.

12. US Arms - was showing their just-released .50 BMG muzzle brake (94% decrease in recoil with only a 1" shift in point-of-aim at 1000 yards, see your vapor trail right up to the target; MSRP: approx $1500, video shows quite severe concussive wave - welcome to effective .50 BMG bakes; a "universal" model to support 338 LM thru .416 Barrett by late '22/early '23. Pics to follow.
