Savage Arms has added a 10-round detachable magazine to its new 10 FCP-SR Law Enforcement Series rifle.

The .308 platform is built around Savage’s “classic, duty-proven 110 action, and uses a floating bolt head, zero-tolerance headspacing and precision button rifling to provide outstanding accuracy and consistency,” according to a recent press release.

“The adjustable AccuTrigger lets the shooter set the trigger to their individual preferences for a light, crisp pull, while the AccuStock bedding system engages the action three-dimensionally along its entire length, further enhancing accuracy.”

The U.S. Army Reserve just awarded a $1.3 million contract for Engagement Skills Training (EST) 3000 virtual training systems for its leader training program.

The EST 3000, which is made by Cubic Global Defense, is a small arms training device that is portable, multipurpose, multilane and can be used indoors to train marksmanship, offensive and defensive collective and “shoot-don’t shoot” judgmental firing skills.

The Army Reserve is combining Cubic’s EST 3000 system and Virtual Battlespace 3 laptop trainers into a Mission Leader Trainer containerized configuration, according to a Cubic Global Defense press release. The command will then leverage the modified MLT containers to support “three core training functions: EST 3000 for marksmanship; VBS3 laptop trainers; and tactical operations or leadership training.”
