New Guns for 2023

The firearm industry has become more flexible in response to an increasingly diverse consumer base. New models reflect varying consumer interest driven both by uncertain times and the availability of new technology.

In 2023, the handgun market continues to be brisk. Manufactures are competing strongly with one another, with “ready” being the marketing watchword. New pistols are touted as “optics ready,” “suppressor ready” or both. Feature-laden and often high-end variations of the Gen3 Glock are plentiful from both boutique and not-so-boutique manufacturers. The contraction of double-stack carry guns seems to have waned in favor of expansion of those same frames, with several micro 9s offered in slightly larger variants. While we’re seeing that there is no limit to the refinements possible to the 1911, the big trend in single-action semi-automatics is toward the 2011. In long guns, while new versions of MSRs continue to be introduced, wilderness/survival guns are appearing more frequently, as are affordable long-range bolt actions. In both rifles and shotguns, “ready” has also become a thing, with MRDS-cut receivers and threaded barrels now offered.
