Optics Review: ACME Machine 6-24x50mm FFP TR Scope

Reader Ken Whitmore writes: ACME Machine is a relatively new entrant in the firearm parts, accessories, and optics business. They’ve been around for a couple of year now, while their parent company, Global Precision Parts (originally known as ACME Machine Automatics), is over 30 years old.

Gear Review: Leupold VX-Freedom 1.5-4×20 Duplex Reticle Scope

I’ve rarely been dissatisfied with Leupold optics. Their consistent quality and durability are characteristics I have come to rely on throughout the years. For certain, that gold ring carries some weight. In late January Leupold announced their newest family of optics, the VX-Freedom Series. One hundred percent designed, machined, assembled, and (if necessary) serviced in […]

New From SIG SAUER: Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) System

Possibly the most exciting new product released at the 2018 NRA show is a system called BDX from SIG SAUER.

Gear Review: Warne TW1 25 in/lbs. T-15 Torque Wrench

For many shooters the simple mention of “T-15” brings fond recollections of self-installed scopes successfully on their favorite tack driver they’ve used out in the field or at the range. To others, the thought brings back nightmares of stripped rings and receivers, slipping scopes, crushed tubes, and other avoidable installation incidents. More often than not, […]

Gear Review: Warne TW65 Torque Wrench (1/4″ Drive, 65-in/lbs)

Warne produces some mighty fine optics mounts. Like many other quality-seeking shooters, I’ve trusted their products for years and have their MSR and tactical mount 1/2-inch hex nut torque specification engrained in my brain – 65-inch/pounds. Adjusting a torque wrench to 65-inch/pounds isn’t typically a tiresome task; however, many wrenches like the Vortex Torque Wrench […]
