SMALL AND EASY TO CARRY, THESE ARE PISTOLS YOU WON’T LEAVE AT HOME TAURUS SPECTRUM 380 PISTOL SEECAMP REINTRODUCES THE LWS .25 STANDARD MANUFACTURING S333 VOLLEYFIRE IVER JOHNSON POCKET ACE
The new Taurus Spectrum is a semi-auto pocket pistol chambered for .380 Auto. It’s a striker-fired pistol with a 6+1 capacity. The polymer frame features an over-molded grip that will be offered in several different colors. There are also soft polymer inserts at the back of the slide and on the grip to provide a secure hold when chambering a round. The Spectrum is the first Taurus pistol that was completely designed, sourced and made in the U.S.
The L.W. Seecamp Company is renowned for its small caliber, double-action-only pocket pistols. In 1981, the company transitioned from double-action conversions of 1911 pistols when it introduced the LWS .25, the first double-action-only, hammer-fired pistol made in the U.S. It weighed a mere 13.4 ounces fully loaded. Because many pocket pistols manufactured elsewhere had been subject to an import ban with the Gun Control Act of 1968, these little stainless steel pocket guns were in high demand, with customers often put on a long waiting list. The .25 auto version was discontinued sometime around 1985 when the LWS .32 was introduced. In 2003, the company started producing its LWS .380. At this year’s SHOT Show, the company announced that it will be reintroducing the LWS .25 soon. The small caliber pistol is sure to find a following with those who are sensitive to recoil.
This derringer is reminiscent of the pepperbox pistols of the 1800s. Standard Manufacturing’s new S333 Volleyfire pistol features a cluster of six barrels. But this pocket pistol, which will be chambered initially in .25 ACP, features modern materials and one very interesting twist: It fires two shots with each pull of the trigger The “333” in the name refers to the average number of seconds, yards and rounds fired in the average gun fight. Because the S333 Volleyfire fires from six individual barrels, this top-break pistol has no moving slide or revolving cylinder, so it can be fired from a pocket if necessary without malfunctioning. Its long-travel, double-action trigger needs to be pulled purposely all the way through, which helps to prevent accidental discharges and eliminates the need for a manual safety.
This new derringer from Iver
Johnson is made of stainless steel and features four barrels chambered in .22 LR. It is a single-action design. The combo safety/takedown lever is ambidextrous. This pistol is made in the U.S.
