There is a little something for every shooter and outdoor adventurer in this week’s new product spotlight from Cheaper Than Dirt! Gerber’s line of new outdoor knives focus on meeting the needs of campers, while Magnum Research’s cool new Magnum Lite rimfire rifle has a reliable and patented gas-assisted blowback system with a lightweight and comfortable stock. The SIG Sauer P320 is finally here, and Midwest Industries now offers billet stripped lower receivers to match perfectly to Cheaper Than Dirt!’s new PNW Arms .300 Blackout receiver that includes a case of ammo.
Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Knife
Gerber’s new line of camp tools includes the fixed blade Camp Kitchen knife that performs double duty. It will chop and cut veggies, fruit or meat, as well as trim cord or whittle a stick for marshmallow roasting. The full-tang, Santoku-inspired sheepsfoot blade has a full straight cutting edge and is 3.8 inches long. Constructed of 7Cr17MoV steel, with a textured black rubber handle, the Gerber Freescape camp kitchen knife is 100 percent dishwasher-safe. It will not take up much room in your tote either. It is 9.1 inches overall and weighs a mere 6.5 ounces. Gerber guarantees its product with a lifetime warranty.
PNW Arms 300 Blackout Complete Upper with 400 Rounds of Ammunition
Have you been toying with the idea of buying an AR-15 chambered for .300 Blackout? Good news! Now you can save money when you buy PNW Arms Signature Series upper receiver in .300 Blackout that converts your existing .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO black rifle to a .300 Blackout without any mods. As a bonus, PNW Arms, a rock steady proponent in research and development of the .300 Blackout round, ships the complete upper with 400 rounds of .300 Blackout ammunition to get you started. The upper includes a 16-inch 4150 MIL-SPEC phosphate-coated chrome moly barrel with a 1:7 twist, a 15-inch Midwest Industries free float rail and the V.2 Gunslinger charging handle that is hard coat anodized.
Dutch Camouflage Convertible Duffle Bag and Backpack
Sometimes you need a duffle bag—when traveling by car, airplane or bus; sometimes you need a backpack. Why buy two bags when you can get one that converts to either? This Dutch military surplus bag has two nylon web handles to carry as a duffle bag and two hidden shoulder straps so you can wear it as a backpack. The padded shoulder straps tuck away into Velcro pockets on the outside of the bag and include a chest and waist strap with buckles for long-distance trekking or hiking. Perfect for camping, a weekend at the deer lease, or as a bug-out bag, the Dutch MIL-SURP bag’s water-resistant tough nylon shell and hard bottom with six rubber feet prevent damage to the bottom of the bag. There is a full-length 24-inch by 8-inch pocket inside. The entire bag measures 32 inches long, 13 inches wide and 12 inches tall and comes in traditional woodland green camo.
Magnum Research Magnum Lite .22 WMR Stainless Rimfire Rifle
The Magnum Research Magnum Lite .22 WMR rimfire rifle with a patented gas-assisted blowback system now comes with a Hogue Overmolded stock. With an 18-inch heavy stainless steel full-float barrel with 1:16 twist and an 11-degree muzzle crown, the Magnum Research Magnum Lite is longer-range than most rimfire rifles. Chambered for .22 Winchester Magnum, the Magnum Lite holds nine rounds and includes a rail for a riflescope. The rifle only weighs 7.3 pounds with the Hogue Overmolded stock. Overall, it is 38 inches long and designed to shoot 40- or 50-grain bullets only. Magnum Research warns customers that shooting 30-grain .22 Magnum ammo through the Magnum Lite will void the warranty.
Midwest Industries AR-15 Billet Stripped Lower Receiver

SIG Sauer P320
A polymer-framed striker-fired pistol is nothing new. However, the P320 is SIG Sauer’s first striker-fired pistol. This is not what makes the P320 stand out, though. The SIG P320’s most interesting feature is its versatility and changeability. Due to the trigger assembly on the P320 being the part that is serialized, you can switch out calibers, grip sizes and the slide on SIG’s newest pistol. Available in either a full-size or “carry” (compact) the P320 full size is currently available in 9mm or .40 S&W while the carry model is also available chambered for .357 Sig—with .45 ACP coming soon. Designed to be a duty pistol, there is no manual external safeties or decocking lever as well as SIGLite night sights, making the SIG P320 perfect for self-defense. A truly modular design, all models of the P320 function in double-action only with a 5.5 to 7.7-pound trigger pull, have an accessory rail and durable black Nitron finish.
