Gun Review: Lone Star Arms Performance Tuned KS-12

I’m not a fan of the AK pattern 12 gauge semi-auto shotguns. I reviewed the original Saiga 12 back in 2011; I was not pleased. Last year Kalashnikov Concern released a version of the same firearm called the Kalashnikov KS-12 which fixed some of my complaints. But it still didn’t reliably cycle common ammunition. Lone […]

Gun Review: FN America FN15 DMR II

As we all hopefully know by now, FN America is the current manufacturer of the US Army’s M4 service rifle. You can now buy that rifle in semi auto, as well as the M16A4 version. And now the FN15 DMRII, a quality nod to the US Army’s Squad Designated Marksman Rifles and the widely acclaimed […]

Gun Review: Walther P22 QD

The first generation Walther P22 was my first pistol. I bought it on price and the Walther name. I shot thousands of rounds through the gun — when it worked. To say my P22 was unreliable would be like saying TTAG tells the truth about guns . . . That P22 was picky about ammo. CCI mini […]

Gun Review: Savage 110 Scout Rifle With AccuFit System

One of my biggest complaints with some firearms is that it seems like they were designed to fit absolutely no one. The mechanics are great, but the furniture is designed for either Tyrion Lannister or Gregor Clegane. There’s rarely a happy medium. Savage is looking to change that with their new AccuFit, a highly adjustable […]

Gun Review: FN 15 Tactical Carbine II Rifle

My Combat Rifle students often bring homemade rifles. They always run into issues: malfunctions, broken parts and assorted failures. SMH. I always advise shooters to buy a complete rifle from a reputable manufacturer; a package that includes the trigger, sights, lower and upper and lower receiver, barrel, hand guard and birdcage flash hider. That’s because . . […]

Gun Review: Czech Small Arms Sa vz. 61 Pistol

The Skorpion vz. 61 was originally designed back in 1959. Czechoslovakia put it into service in 1961. Thanks to its iconic top wire folding stock, which resembles a scorpion’s tail, the gun’s often called the Skorpion. It was originally issued to Czech special forces troops, reconnaissance units and security forces. Due to its compact design, it […]

Gun Review: BUL Cherokee Gen 2 9mm

By Austin Knudsen If the BUL Cherokee pistol was sold stateside, the Israeli-made handgun would compete with the CZs, Jerichos and Caniks of the world. But it isn’t. So it doesn’t. Still, I was impressed enough with my used Gen 1 model that I tracked down a full-size Cherokee Gen 2 from BUL’s importer, International Firearms Corporation. […]

Gun Review: Stoeger M3500 Semi-Auto Shotgun

I’m a Benelli owner and a bird hunter. So when the Stoeger M3500 hit my doorstep, I was curious to see what Benelli’s modestly priced Stoeger cousins bring to the table. Or rather the field . . . The Stoeger M3500 is a 7.8-pound inertia-driven semi-automatic shotgun capable of cycling everything from light 2 3/4-inch to heavy […]

Gun Review: B&T TP9 Pistol

The B&T TP9 started life back in 1989 as the select fire Steyr TMP (tactical machine pistol). Neutered semi-auto versions were later imported to the US as the Steyr SPP (special purpose pistol). Exactly what the “special purpose” is remains a mystery to this day . . . Steyr only produced the SPP between 1992 […]

Gun Review: FN 15 Military Collector M16

The AR-15 platform is one of the most versatile and easily customized firearm designs ever created. From tiny pistols to massive beer can launchers, they can be configured to do just about anything. That said, there’s a significant portion of the gun owning population who are trying to get their guns to look exactly alike […]
