Gun Review: SIG SAUER 1911 Stainless Super Target

When most people think of a 1911, they think of Colt or Springfield. Truth be told, SIG SAUER is America’s number one maker of 1911 handguns. The New Hampshire manufacturer has been cranking out John Moses Browning’s masterpiece as fast as their CNC machines can turn, in a stunning variety of models. While many favor the clean […]

Gun Review: Howa 1500

While browsing the discount section of a local gun store I stumbled upon a Howa 1500 in .300 Winchester Magnum. I had been wanting to add a .300 Win Mag to my collection, and 40% off an already-low MSRP was too good a deal to pass up. Howa-bout a little history? Howa is a Japanese […]

Gun Review: PWS MK116 Mod 2

A few weeks ago Jeremy S handed me a Primary Weapon Systems MK116 Mod 2 rifle. As I’ve been busy shooting various piston driven AR15s, I was curious to see if a high end version is worth an extra grand or two. PWS ships the MK116 Mod 2 rifle equipped with a BCM stock, grip […]

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact

Aside from the M&P Shield, I’ve never been a fan of M&P pistols. I was continually surprised to see knowledgeable shooters compete with M&P’s — but not surprised that they’d changed the grip, sights, trigger and barrel. And then I shot the new full-sized Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 featured in RF’s recent review. For all intents and […]

Gun Review: DPMS GII Compact Hunter

DPMS, purchased by Remington about a decade ago, is one of the largest manufacturers of AR-15 and AR-10 rifles in the world. They’ve developed the DPMS GII as the ultimate evolution of the .308 Modern Sporting Rifle; smaller, lighter, and more reliable than AR-10s of the past. TTAG snagged this Compact Hunter model and put […]

Gun Review: Desert Tech MDR

Desert Tech unveiled the MDR in January of 2014. Development and supply chain issues finally resolved, these .308 bullpups are just now hitting online retailers and select dealer shelves near you. But should one hit your safe? We aimed to find out . . . MDR stands for Micro Dynamic Rifle. I’m positive it’s a rifle. It’s as […]

Gun Review: Strasser RS-14 Rifle

Firearms technology has moved well beyond the wood stocks and leather slings. We’re now in the era of injection molded polymer and precision machined aluminum. While that change has produced some amazingly accurate weapons and lowered the cost of entry for new shooters, there’s definitely something to be said about the charm and the warmth […]

Gun Review: BUL G-Cherokee Compact Gen 2

By Austin Knudsen I recently reviewed the BUL Cherokee pistol, a full-size polymer framed CZ-75 pattern 9mm pistol manufactured in Israel. My review gun was imported into the U.S. in the early 2000s by Century Arms International, and was, to use some GLOCK-speak, the “Gen 1” version of the Cherokee. While doing some research for […]

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 […]
