Here are some of the more interesting releases of new guns and gear.

7. Rock Island Armory RIA 5.0

Rock Island describes the RIA 5.0 as American made and revolutionary. Looking at the gun, you might wonder what makes it so different that it can be described as revolutionary. For that, you actually have to look inside of it. There you find the patented RVS recoil system. It maximizes the barrel mass and linear movement to make for a very soft recoil that can easily be managed. That is at least what the company says.

To further help with recoil management, the barrel sits very low in relations to the bore axis to bring the recoil straight into your arm instead of pivoting your hand up. The grip frame is modular and consists of two pieces with a hybrid polymer and an aluminum design. To really see what this gun can do, and if it is really revolutionary, a lot more testing has to be done. The retail price for it starts at $998.88.
