S&W's 327 TRR8 Revolver

Smith & Wesson developed its eight-shot 327 TRR8, after a SWAT officer contacted the company to ask for a beefy revolver for the lead penetrator, who must carry a ballistic shield with one hand. The TRR8 gives operators eight rounds of .357 Mag in a package including a Scandium "N" frame, 5-inch barrel, and blackened cylinder. Rails and moon clips are included.

'Hot Rod' Mossberg Shotguns

'Hot Rod' Mossberg Shotguns

The Mossberg 590A1 is an ideal platform for personalizing a pump-action shotgun, says Mike Shain of AIMPRO Tactical. Shain is one of several shops that offer action jobs, Magnaporting, accesorization and cleaning, polishing and refinishing of police scatterguns. Vang Comp and Wilson Combat are two others that offer shotgun modifications. For less than $250, Shain can reduce felt recoil and muzzle jump, giving operators a shot pattern of 4 inches or less from 50 yards. "What can we do to hot rod this gun," Shain asks, not needing an answer. "It's a great gun out of the box, but how can we squeeze every last drop of performance out of this gun."
