SHOT Show Day Three: 7 Great Products From the Floor

Smith & Wesson's new CSX.

Day three of the 2022 SHOT Show in Las Vegas is in the books, and we’ve got a fresh crop of products we saw on the floor that you might want to check out.

1. Smith & Wesson CSX

Smith & Wesson’s new CSX (pictured above) is a brand-new metal-framed, hammer-fired, microcompact 9mm pistol designed for concealed carry. The frame is made of an aluminum alloy and offers interchangeable backstraps. It comes with a 10-round and a 12-round extended magazine and features front and rear slide serrations, an “EZ tab” to make racking the slide easier, a chamfered ejection port to avoid snagging on the draw, metal three-dot sights and a manual right-hand-side safety that can be swapped out for the (included) left-hand release button. It’s got a single-action flat-faced trigger. The CSX weighs 19.5 ounces unloaded and is 6.1 inches long, and MSRP is $609.

2. Primos Carbon Fiber Apex Tripod

This is a beefed-up version of Primos’ Apex tripod, now with carbon fiber legs. Carbon fiber construction saves weight but also provides rigidity, which allows for more stability. It weighs just over 6 pounds and has a thick saddle at the top that’s adjustable for width, making this tripod suitable for tactical long-range rifles as well as traditional hunting rigs. Three-part legs feature angle adjusters for getting stable platform on uneven terrain, and height adjustments are fast and easy thanks to Primos’ Trigger Stick system. At 60 inches fully extended, the tripod allows for standing-up shots and adjusts to allow for sitting or kneeling shots as well. A removeable mounting plate makes this usable for spotting scopes and other devices, too. The Apex folds down to 38 inches for easy carrying. MSRP is $499.

3. SpyPoint Flex

If you run cellular trail cameras, you might know the frustration involved with network connectivity — you have to select the network when you buy, limiting flexibility. SpyPoint’s Flex cellular trail cam solves that problem. It comes with a multi-network LTE preloaded, with two preactivated SIM cards that ensure cross-carrier coverage. It’ll scan for the best network, and if it doesn’t find it on the first SIM, it’ll hop over to the second and to get you connected. And during the course of use, if a network goes down or loses connection, the Flex will automatically connect to another network if available, so your camera doesn’t go down. It features a .3-second trigger speed, 100-foot flash range, 100-foot detection range, 33mp quality and 1080p video with sound. Users can operate it in photo, video, time-lapse or time-lapse+ mode.

4. Hornady CX

Hornady is introducing the CX, a monolithic copper alloy bullet that delivers 95% weight retention. It’s designed for extended-range performance, greater accuracy and deep penetration. It has a heat-resistant polymer tip that Hornady says “resists aerodynamic heating and provides a consistently high BC for the bullet’s entire flight path.” Hornady is making the CX in a wide range of big-game calibers and is loading it in the company’s Outfitter ammo line.

5. Mossberg 940 Pro Turkey

Mossberg is expanded the popular 940 semi-auto shotgun line with a 940 Pro Turkey edition, featuring everything you’d want in a turkey-hunting shotgun. The guns are optics-ready and feature a corrosion-resistant internal parts and finishing, an enlarged loading port, elongated pinch-free elevator, anodized follower for smooth operation, an adjustable stock that allows for 1 ¼ inches of length-of-pull flexibility, signature texturing on the stock and forend, and a HiVix CompSight front fiber optic sight. The durable gas system allows for up to 1500 rounds between cleanings. X-Factor ported choke tubes are included. Mossberg is offering it in two models, both 12-gauge — one with an 18 ½-inch barrel (weight 7.25 pounds) and one with a 24-inch barrel (weight 7.5 pounds). MSRP is $1,120.

6. Do-All Outdoors Jurassic Rock Crushed Rock

It’s no secret that deer and other animals love salt, and pink salt (mined in the Himalayas or, in this case, in Utah) has the added benefit of a number of essential minerals — it’s practically a multi-vitamin for deer. The folks at Do All Outdoors took advantage of this with their original Jurassic Rock Mammoth Rock, which serves as a traditional salt lick — but now they’re introducing pink salt products that take advantage of a better delivery system. Their crushed rock products are offered in Apple Spice and Pumpkin Spice, based on two popular deer foods, and come in convenient Growler size or 50-pound buckets. The Growler, which retails for $5.99, comes in a reusable container that you can repurpose for storage, transport, or even an after-hunt drinking cup. The 50-pound bucket retails for $34.99.

7. Meprolight M22

Meprolight is a company out of Israel, and they make battle optics for the IDF. The newly-released M22 is the U.S. version of the M21 reflex red-dot sight, which was originally designed for the IDF. It’s half the size and one-third to a half the weight of its predecessor and takes up half the rail space. Reticle options include a 2-MOA dot, a bull’s-eye or a triangle. Front “wings” protect the sight from bumps and scratches, and the M22 features a QD locking mechanism. This sight is battery-free, running off of fiber optics and tritium. No more worrying about replacing batteries or your sights running out of juice at a critical moment. MSRP on the M22 is $494 ($449 MAP) and Meprolight expects to have them ready to ship to dealers in Q3 2022.
