Gun Review: Savage 10/110 BA Stealth Rifle

Savage Arms has earned a solid reputation for making highly accurate, quality rifles at an affordable price. As soon as I saw the 10/110 BA Stealth I was drawn to its minimalist, modern chassis stock appearance and Savage’s reputation for accuracy. TTAG borrowed this example, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and put it through its paces. Though […]

First Aid: When a Gun Isn’t the Answer

Unfortunately, whether it’s a car crash or a distant shooter, the option of self-defense doesn’t always exist. Even if you technically could engage with a ballistic solution, the best option very well may be to unass the AO, seek cover or barricade, and already have basic trauma care training. A little training and a little […]

Ghost Gunner CNC Machines Now Completing 80% Pistol Frames

Defense Distributed‘s Ghost Gunner desktop CNC machine has been turning 80% AR-15 lowers into functional receivers for years. Now, it’s ready to sink its teeth into 80% pistol frames — 1911s, GLOCKs, specifically, with more to come. TTAG stopped by DD’s Austin HQ to get the lowdown from Cody Wilson, who pioneered open source software and hardware for […]

Gun Review: Gen5 GLOCK 19 and 17

GLOCK handguns haven’t changed much since the early 80’s. Then again, they really haven’t had to. Looking more like the original two generations than Gens 3 and 4, I admit I was underwhelmed by what appeared to be minor tweaks GLOCK engineered into the Gen5. After shooting them, though, I believe GLOCK’s Gen5 is its best […]

Leaked Info on New Rotating Barrel GLOCK 46

Somehow Recoil Magazine’s Sunday post breaking the news of GLOCK’s first rotating-barrel pistol got past us. The new gun’s numerical designation: GLOCK 46. Originally posted on German weapons magazine Das Magazin für Waffenbesitzer, the G46 has some other unique features besides that barrel. From the sounds of it, the G46 can be field stripped without the user having […]

Scopes For Beginners: Parallax Adjustment

Many talented shooters will never nail a sub-MOA group due not to their skill, but to misunderstanding a scope‘s parallax adjustment and what it’s for. Hint: it ain’t “side focus.” Not really. For scopes with adjustable parallax — which is going to be the majority of them with magnification over, oh, 8x or so — […]

Gear Review: MagnetoSpeed T1000 Target Hit Indicator

As we saw last week, MagnetoSpeed is branching out from chronographs into other firearms-related gear. Next up for them is a product designed to solve the frustrating difficulty of target impact verification at long ranges. Employing bright LEDs redirected by a flexible fiber optic slab, the T1000 Target Mounted Hit Indicator provides clear hit (and […]

Happy 9mm Day!

You probably thought this was National Talk Like a Pirate Day. Nope…not around these parts in the 9th month on the 19th day. Instead, we want to wish a happy 9mm Day to the 9x19mm, 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum (“para bellum” meaning “prepare for war” in Latin), 9mmP, 9mm NATO, 9×19, simply the “9mm,” the […]
