Compact? Check. Precise? Check. Stealthy? Definitely check. The CZ 600 Trail Rifle checks off all the boxes, especially the last now that the bolt-action comes chambered in .300 BLK. Paired with a suppressor, the compact chassis rig is ideal for subsonic shooting while maintaining the accuracy for which the model has become renowned. Prioritizing portability, the Trail features a PDA collapsible stock and only comes in at a scant 6 pounds, making it a rock-solid truck gun option. Better yet, the gun uses a slew of AR-15 parts—thanks to its AR lower—which makes it modular and extremely versatile, able to be tailored to your needs. To boot, the controls are very familiar to anyone who’s run an AR—which pretty much means everyone.
MSRP: $1,080

Knife or gun, auto rules the roost. And if you’re in the market for the easier-to-obtain former, then Bear OPS’s new drop might be of interest. The Double Clutch IV is an out-the-front automatic option crafted for deep everyday carry. As for keeping it under wraps, the knife measures in at a tiny 4.5 inches with the blade deployed, with the Double Clutch IV boasting a 2.5-inch blade. Made from D2 steel, the blade also offers great edge retention and a good measure of corrosion resistance. As to the action, it’s lightning fast, actuated via a thumb slide on the side of the aluminum handle. Available with a drop-point or tanto blade, the Double Clutch ends up a wicked little carry-along.
MSRP: $290

Smith & Wesson M&P Sport III

Representing the latest evolution of the renowned M&P Sport series, the Smith & Wesson M&P Sport III keeps the rifle relevant to the times. Chief among the upgrades to the rugged and simple AR is the flat-top receiver and full-length aluminum handguard. Not only free-floating the barrel, this modification offers you enhanced optics mounting options and also allows you to doll it up, thanks to the handguard’s ample M-Lok slots. Utilizing a mid-length gas tube and a thinner pencil-barrel profile, the rifle remains a lightweight platform and quite nimble. Furthermore, with a 16-inch barrel and 1:8-inch rifling twist, it stabilizes a wide range of 5.56mm projectiles. For bargain-priced ARs, it doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
MSRP: $800

Compatible with Ruger 10/22 magazines and aftermarket parts, it ensures versatility and customization options.
