2017 Tulsa Arms Show: The Firearm Technology Entering the Industry

On November 11-12, 2017, Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show will be back in Oklahoma sponsored by the Tulsa Arms Collectors Association.

Held in the Expo Square at the Tulsa Fairgrounds, the Tulsa Arms Show is known for being the world’s largest gun show and it boasts more than 4,200 tables of antique and modern firearms within the 11-acre tradeshow floor. If you haven’t already purchased tickets for the show, you can get them here.

New Firearm Technology Not Seen at the Show

If all the tables at Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show were placed end to end, they would stretch across 5.7 miles! That said, there is one thing firearm owners and collectors will not be seeing yet at the 2017 Tulsa Arms Show. That new technology is diamond-like carbon coatings, or DLC.

DLC is an amorphous matrix of nano-crystalline silicon carbide and nano-crystalline diamond, and there is no other element stronger than pure diamond itself. It’s applied to parts by a proprietary plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition process so each part is coated evenly. For firearms, this is important because all the benefits of DLC are revealed, but it doesn’t impact fit or function of the firearm.

Not to mention, IHC recently became a Federal Firearms Licensee (FLL) through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
