New Guns for 2024

As more Americans buy guns for personal protection, new offerings for that expanding market abound. Never before has there been such a wide selection of purpose-built firearms for self-defense.

Companies keep exploring the limits of the AR platform with more chamberings (including 7.62×39 mm) and easier accessorizing. Moreover, the bullpup design is suddenly getting long-overdue attention in both rifles and shotguns. Mean- while, handgun manufacturers are not only cranking out new designs, but are now dusting off and updating old favorites. And both handgun and long gun manufacturers are producing optics- and suppressor-ready models as these accessories gain greater and greater acceptance.

In a contentious election year with guns a hot-button issue, the rush of Americans to acquire firearms probably won’t abate. With that in mind, here are some of the best new guns to consider adding to your own shopping list.
