Hosting 2,500 exhibitors – including Swampfox – and attracting over 55,000 attendees, SHOT Show is the annual launch pad for new firearms and accessories. This week, the team traveled to Las Vegas for the 46th largest firearms industry event of the year.
While most of our time was spent showing off new optics, we managed to sneak away from the booth for a bit to walk the nearly 14 miles of show floor and see the latest the industry has to offer.
The first in a series highlighting new guns and gear, below are nine of the best new handguns announced at SHOT Show 2024. Check out the rest of our SHOT Show coverage for even more new products and scenes from the show.
Daniel Defense H9
When one door closes, another one opens. Purchased in 2020, the new Daniel H9 revives the short-lived Hudson Manufacturing design of the same name. The first handgun from Daniel Defense, the H9 may look similar to its namesake but was almost entirely reengineered to meet the manufacturer’s tolerance and quality standards. The ultra-low bore axis pistol has an aluminum frame, optics-cut slide, 1911 straight-pull trigger, fully ambi controls, and 15-round 9mm capacity.
MSRP: $1,299.00 / danieldefense.com
Palmetto State Armory X5.7
Making the biggest splash at SHOT Show 2024, PSA announced over a dozen concept firearms and encouraged fans to vote on their favorites to better prioritize production. Perhaps the most talked about of them all and the entire show, the PSA X5.7 concept brings the H&K MP7 to the masses. Built atop the Rock 5.7 frame, the X5.7 is a 5.7x28mm PDW with MCX-style collapsible pistol brace, Picatinny railed receiver, threaded barrel, Magpul MBUS Pro flip-up sights, Radian Raptor charging handle, and a 40-round magazine.
MSRP: TBD / palmettostatearmory.com
Palmetto State Armory Sabre Dagger Series
PSA also announced several production-ready firearms at the show. An ‘elite’ version of their popular Dagger line, new Sabre Dagger pistols will feature full-size and micro frames with laser stippling, custom window-cut slides with RMR/RMSc footprints, ported and threaded barrels, aluminum flat-face triggers, magazine extensions, and optional flared mag wells. The Sabre pistols will be available in three Cerakote colorways: black, peanut butter, and woodland camo.
MSRP: TBD / palmettostatearmory.com
Rost Martin RM1C
A newcomer to the industry, Rost Martin is an American-made firearms manufacturer out of Dallas, TX. Their first entry into the market, the RM1C, is a 9mm striker-fired compact pistol with a 4” hammer-forged, low bore axis barrel, optics ready slide (metal RMR adapter provided), ambidextrous magazine release, and proprietary laser-stippled Responsive Grip Texturing. The RM1c ships with a 15-round flush fit and 17-round extended magazine in three color frame options.
MSRP: $459.00 / rostmartin.com
LTT Beretta PX4 Compact / G-SD
While Beretta announced its second-generation PX4 Storm Compact Carry and new PX4 G-SD (Decock-only Special Duty), the real story is what Ernest Langdon is doing to the new pistols. Giving the latest PX4 models the Langdon Tactical treatment, all get a trigger job and tritium front sight with the G-SD also receiving a mag well, plus optional upgrades for a Grey Guns steel flat trigger, RDO optics cut (plus optic), and new Vantage Point rail-mounted compensator package with weapon light.
MSRP: $1,005.00–2,176.99 / langdontactical.com
Uberti 1873 Hunter
Revolver fans rejoice – there’s a new optics-ready wheelgun on the market! Combining modern functionality with Old West styling, Uberti USA is expanding its 1873 single-action Cattleman series with the new 1873 Hunter. Chambered in .45 Long Colt and .44 Magnum, the Hunter adds a frame-mounted Picatinny rail atop a 7.5” blued barrel and color case frame. The revolver fires from a 6-shot fluteless cylinder and wears 1860-style walnut grips for comfort on the range and in the field.
MSRP: $799.00 / uberti-usa.com
Canik TTI Combat
A collaboration between Canik and Taran Tactical Innovations, the new Canik TTI Combat boasts competition features out of the box. Designed by Taran Butler, a new polymer frame wears aggressive grip texturing, changeable backstraps, double-undercut trigger guard, and magwell. The TTI Combat also comes standard with Canik’s first removable barrel compensator, low cut optics-ready slide, flat face trigger, +3 magazine base pad extensions, and a two-tone bronze and black finish – all for less than a grand.
MSRP: $949.00 / canikusa.com
Tisas Night Stalker SF DS9
There once was a time when double stack 2011 pistols were outrageously expensive. Tisas USA, a division of SDS Imports, is changing that with the release of their Night Stalker SF DS9. Adapting their single stack 9mm Night Stalker SF around a new 17-round magazine, the DS (Double Stack) model features a forged and Cerakoted slide, frame, and threaded barrel, skeletonized hammer, Holosun 507K/RMSc footprint optic cut, tritium night sights, and magazine well.
MSRP: $959.99 / tisasusa.com
FN 509 CC Edge XL
Continuing to add to is FN 509 series, the new FN 509 CC Edge XL fills the size and performance gap between the manufacturer’s 509 CC Edge and 509 LS Edge. Though a mouthful to say, the 509 CC Edge XL is a full-size, 17-round frame with a compact 4.2” barrel. Like its smaller brother, the XL features a gold barrel with quick-detach compensator for 25% muzzle flip, flat-face trigger, and MRD optics mounting plate system with tall fiber optic front sight.
