.22 rifles are, by definition, rifled. In quite a few countries, that’s subject to a higher level of restriction than smoothbores. 22LR round is fixed ammunition, and that is also more restricted compared to loosely loaded black powder guns. The … Continue reading
Three years ago, I took this photo of 15 year old Rachel. She had fun with the bolt action but had to shoot it from a support due to the stock length and considerable overall heft. Yesterday, I took photos … Continue reading
ATI1911-22 with an AAC Pilot suppressor shown. Walther P22, M&P22 and 1911-22 all use the same threaded adapter for mounting suppressors.
Suppressed SU22 is light enough and quiet enough for a comfortable social outing in the woods of Tennessee. Everyone shot suppressed that day, so the ear plugs aren’t in evidence.
This is a 10-22 receiver. By US law, this is considered a firearm. If you bring this item to a “gun-free” zone, you would be guilty of a felony. In case of Browning M1919 machine gun, the “firearm” is merely … Continue reading
I like the full sight radius, the quiet report and the improved balance. In some cases, the low-key look also helps. This one is from SRT Arms.
Producers are under two pressures: to raise prices to account for the loss of purchasing power of each dollar, and to lower prices to attract customers with declining incomes. They most obvious way to accomplish both is to keep the … Continue reading
At the recent industry shoot, I had a chance to try new Faxon AR uppers. The design is an AK-style long-stroke piston with a FAL-type gas regulator. It allows effective suppressed use without any gas blowback at the shooter. Little … Continue reading
223-308-338 — all superbly accurate (we used Black Hills match ammo), all showing mild recoil and very moderate report, with great triggers and ergonomics. Hits on 500 yard steel targets were easy. Good optics obviously helped. More photos by DDB.
Stopped by briefly to watch the instructional process. Took photos of other people at the range as well.
The main character from Monster Hunter International. Met him yesterday.
762SDN-6 suppressor | 1-4x Nightforce scope | RFB
These two are well equipped for the the less common human road hazards, but they are missing leather and helmets for the more usual perils. It takes both — and good judgment — to be safe.
110-pound girl firing a 13+ pound rifle off-hand? Check. Left-handed user running a bullpup comfortably? Check. Sound suppressor making muffs unnecessary? Check. Great day at the range today? Check.
A .308 rifle with a sound suppressor, BUIS and a low-magnification scope weights quite a bit. Add to that a 20-round and this RFB weighs 13.2 pounds (6kg). M14 and AR10 variants with the same 18″ barrel length weight the … Continue reading
Finally had a chance to fire the RFB with the new AAC 762SDN-6 (and shorter piston provided by Keltec) and 1-4x Nightforce scope. What an improvement over the previous set-up! For one, the cycling of the gun is now softer, … Continue reading
Keltec RFB with Nightforce 1-4×24 scope, YHM backup sights and AAC 762SD-N6 suppressor.
