DoubleStar Star 15 Patrol Rifle

The Star 15 Patrol Rifle is built on an A-1 configuration with a one-in-nine twist barrel. Capable of MOA accuracy, the Star 15 Patrol Rifle has a phantom flash hider, a YHM four-rail hand guard, a GG&G flip-up MAD rear sight, a Hogue rubber pistol grip, and a DSC six-position M4 buttstock. Available upgrades include a chrome-lined barrel, a two-stage trigger, an H buffer, and a bipod. The Star 15 is available in a variety of configurations, including a CAR-15 carbine and a match rifle with a 20-inch barrel.

DPMS Panther Arms Agency Rifle

The Agency Rifle is a Panther carbine set up for patrol carry. It's totally fitted out with such details as Mangonel flip-up iron sights, an EoTech 512 HoloSight, SureFire M73 handguard with SureFire M951XM weapons light, ambidextrous safety selector, Ergo Ambi-Grip, two-stage trigger, and a DPMS Pardus Carbine Stock. The basic Panther platform offers a 16-inch chrome-moly barrel, 1-in-9-inch twist; steel bolt carrier; A2 front sight assembly, and A2 flash hider.


The acronym SCAR stands for "Special Forces Combat Assault Rifle), which gives you an idea of the roots of this firearm. FN's SCAR is a next-generation military rifle available in 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO. The SCAR is a short stroke gas piston rifle that is magazine fed, air cooled, and is available in select fire and semi-auto versions. It's also lightweight but has very little recoil thanks to its excellent ergonomics. The SCAR was built for flexibility. Each model can be fitted with three different barrels to achieve different mission goals. The 10-inch barrel and folding stock make the SCAR into a close quarters subgun; the 14-inch and 18-inch barrels are more suited to longer range applications. The side-folding polymer stock is fully adjustable for comb height and length of pull.

Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun

At SHOT Show 2011, Kel-Tec will introduce a compact shotgun, the KSG, that's likely to find a role in future law enforcement operations. The KSG is bull-pup, dual-feed, pump-action 12-gauge shot that holds 14 rounds plus one in the chamber. Barrel length is 18.5 inches and overall length is 26 inches. Kel-Tec says it was able to reduce the size of the shotgun platform because the KSG ejects downward.
