Kahr wants other firearms businesses to come to Pike County

April 12, 2014 | By Beth Brelje | The Pocono Record

Ground-breaking in Pike County for the new corporate headquarters of Kahr Firearms Group is likely in May, and a long-range plan for more gun companies is taking shape.

The gun manufacturer bought the long-empty 600-acre Pike County Business Park on Well Road in Blooming Grove for $2 million last year and will move its entire New York operation out of that state to escape what it describes as an unfriendly gun climate there.

“We would like to have a firearms-friendly business park. If other companies want to leave states with more restrictive gun laws, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, this is a great place,” company spokesman Frank Harris said. “We have lots available, and we would put up buildings. Pike County is a great place with a gun-friendly environment, right off Interstate 84.”

Magnum Research® Goes Bronze with the Desert Eagle® .50AE

April 2, 2014

Pomona, NY – The manufacturing ingenuity behind USA based, Magnum Research, Inc. (MRI) has been turning heads for decades. The iconic Desert Eagle has been featured on the Silver Screen, TV and video games, but now, MRI has made it even sexier. Introducing the Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50 AE and .44 Magnum in a new high temperature ceramic Cerakote™ coating called Burnt Bronze. These two models are being offered exclusively to dealers through one of the industry’s leading firearms distributors, Bill Hicks & Co., Ltd.

“We took our most popular and iconic handgun, the Desert Eagle, and gave it a commanding new look” says Frank Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing. “The Desert Eagle has always been considered a bit of a muscle gun, but now, with the Burnt Bronze Cerakote coating, it brings intimidating to an entirely new level.”

The Cerakote coating is a multi-step process which results in a high temperature ceramic coating that holds up well under normal use. The Burnt Bronze model has attractive black appointments which gives the pistol even more appeal.

The Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50 AE is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a 7 round capacity in .50 AE and 8 round capacity in .44 Magnum. The gun measures 10.75” in length with a 6” barrel, or 14.75” in a 10” barrel available in black as an aftermarket item. Width is 1.25”, height 6.25” and the weight with an empty magazine is approximately 72 ounces. It has a trigger reach of 2.75” and a sight radius of 8.5” with the 6” barrel. The construction of the Mark XIX Desert Eagle utilizes the latest CNC machine technology providing exacting specifications with tight tolerances creating a work of art in a precision firearm. The grip is anatomically formed and provides an ideal hand seating angle for two-handed shooting allowing for comfortable, rapid and accurate firing. The Weaver style accessory rail easily allows for aftermarket optics and scope rings.

The new Cerakote Burnt Bronze Desert Eagle is offered in either the .50 AE or .44 Magnum calibers. The MSRP is $1696 and is exclusively offered through Bill Hicks & Co., Ltd., a leading distributor of firearms and sporting goods. Visit your dealer today to go bronze with the DE50BB or DE44BB.

Kahr® Partners with Spyderco® to Introduce the Kahr Delica4

January 6, 2014


Kahr Spyderco Delica4

Pomona, NY – Kahr Firearms Group is proud to introduce the Kahr Spyderco Delica4, a distinctive variation of one of Spyderco's most popular folding knives available exclusively through Kahr.

Created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, the Kahr signature Delica4 offers Kahr its own unique design by combining a full-length handle with a compact 2.5" blade. The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power.

The Kahr Delica4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Hole™ found on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening. Other features include the Bi-Directional Textured™ handle scales injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced nylon and skeletonized stainless steel liners that reduce the overall weight of the knife to just 2.5 ounces.

The perfect companion to Kahr's compact pistols, the Kahr Delica4 is also designed to maximize its concealment properties. It is offered in three discreet handle colors — black, khaki, and denim-blue — to blend discreetly with common pant colors. In addition, the blade, four-position pocket clip, and all other hardware feature a non-reflective stonewashed finish.

The Kahr Spyderco Delica4 is available through Kahr Arms at www.kahr.com and select Kahr dealers and distributors. The MSRP is $99.
