Until now, most of the benefits have been demonstrated through the company’s Range, Action Pistol, and Match offerings. However, there’s a new kid, and a new color, on the block.

The Federal Syntech Defense offering with its distinctive blue noses, are intended for serious use. Let’s take a closer look.

How about following us on social media? You can find us on Twitter and Facebook if you must, but they’re evil, so we’re moving to new networks like Parler, Gab, Clouthub, Telegram, and MeWe where they don’t engage in all that ridiculous censorship and correct-think enforcement. We’ll stick around with the old tech tyrants for a while because, hey, someone has to stay behind enemy lines, right? At least until they kick us off…
