USA -(Ammoland.com)- 2016 was quite the year, punctuated with what might be the most memorable Presidential race and result in history. In the shooting industry, all sorts of neat stuff went down, ranging from new products and trends to epic gatherings. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and review just a few of the hundreds of news-making products and events.

The idea is that you fasten the right plate to the slide and that provides a compatible mount for a wide variety of pistol optics, such as Trijicon’s RMR, Leupold’s Deltapoint, C-More, Burris’ FastFire and others.
