With violent crimes increasing and new gun laws taking effect (Constitutional Carry, or permit-less concealed carry), 2023 will be another year with high numbers of gun sales.
And there are a lot of new and unique firearms that will hit the market this year.
In fact, here are five new firearms you may wish to check out this year…
Anderson Kiger 9c:
Anderson Manufacturing is a family-owned business in Kentucky. They have been in operation for over 30 years.
They are one of many companies manufacturing a pistol that is very similar to the Glock 19.
The Kiger 9c is chambered in 9mm like the Glock 19.
The slide is made from milled billet 416 steel and has front and rear cocking serrations.
The sight system is made up of a white dot post sight and a dovetailed blackout target sight at the rear.
The grip frame has an accessory rail, pebbled grip texture, and textured finger rest.
The Kiger 9c pistol comes with a single Magpul 15-round magazine, and sells for about $420 new.
CZ USA 712 G3 Shotguns:
CZ USA is adding to its list of semi-automatic shotguns.
The G3 is a 12-gauge with an optional 28’’ barrel in camo or the 20’’ barrel in black synthetic (there are also traditional hardwood versions).
The gas-operated shotgun comes with five interchangeable choke tubes and two pistons.
The barrels are chrome-lined and chambered for 2 ¾” and 3″ shells. The barrel is topped with a 7mm ventilated rib with a bead front sight.
The G3 starts around $575 depending on the options you choose.
FightLite Industries Model 2024 Herring Lever-Action Rifle:
FightLite Industries is known for manufacturing quality gun parts for the AR-15, M4, M-16, and other similar rifles.
But the Model 2024 Herring is a unique rifle. The company took an AR-15 rifle platform and modified the gun to make it a lever gun.
The rifle has a fixed synthetic stock, cross-bolt safety button, and a lever loop with an AR-15-style magazine well.
The takedown pins allow the upper and lower receiver to open like a typical AR-15.
The barrel is 16.25″ and the rifle is chambered in 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem.
The rifles sell for about $1,300.
The Springfield Prodigy is not completely new for 2023, but the company has come out with a newer version that worked out a few issues with the previous version.
So, if you are considering buying a Prodigy make sure you buy one that was manufactured in 2023.
The Prodigy is a good beginner 9mm based on the 1911 platform. It’s double-stacked and has a forged steel frame.
It comes with capacities of 17+1 and 20+1. The pistol is optics-ready with ambidextrous safety and a Picatinny rail.
The Prodigy sells for around $1,500 new.
The Equalizer is another 9mm, double-stack pistol.
It’s a micro-compact pistol with a grip safety.
The pistol works with 10, 13, and 15-round magazines. It has a single-action trigger and a clean break.
The slide has an easy-to-rack design and includes a Picatinny rail to mount accessories.
The Equalizer has a 3.675” barrel for increased iron sight capabilities.
The pistol sells for $500 new.
The fact is, with gun sales near record highs, manufacturers will continue to work at making the latest and best guns possible.
With more law-abiding citizens now able to carry their guns without a permit, gun sales will likely continue to be record-setting.
