New from Billet Rifle Systems: BRS47 7.62×39 AR

Between my Galil Ace Pistol and JWT’s AK, I’ve been shooting a lot of 7.62×39 ammo lately. I like it for two reasons: it’s fun and it’s cheap. So when I spied Billet Rifle System’s BRS47, it put a twinkle in my eye . . . BRS’s new Russian shooting AR is available in various […]

Not New From Caracal: CAR816 Gas Piston and CAR814 A2 COMP

Caracal has been trying to break into the U.S. firearms market for years. Robert was in love with their ill-fated F series handgun (and had his heart broken) since 2012. More recently, the Middle Eastern firearms manufacturer has promised to introduce a precision rifle — for two years (2016 and 2017). Third time lucky? I […]

New from Zev Technologies: 6.5 Creedmoor AR15

Zev Technologies is best known for their GLOCK aftermarket parts. A few months ago I noticed the company’s expansion into the AR market. Today at SHOT Show Zev revealed their 6.5 Creedmoor AR. Like all of Zev’s AR’s . . . the 6.5 Creedmoor features a self-regulating gas block, grey AR Gold flat face trigger […]

New From Daniel Defense: V7P AR Pistol

Daniel Defense thinks that small will be big this year and has made their ARs even smaller, introducing the V7P AR Pistols in 5.56mm and 300BLK in a 10.3 in barrel. The pistols features a law tactical folding folding stock with an SB brace. This little Daniel comes in handy as a truck gun or […]

John Farnam to U.S. Military: Ditch 5.56

John Farnam writes [via]: What we currently call the “M4″ has been, in various forms, our standard Infantry rifle since the 1960s. . . As with any new piece of critical equipment that is haphazardly rushed into service in the middle of a war (Vietnam), testing was inadequate (much of it glossed-over), and there were thus […]

New from H&K: the HK433

Things aren’t going so well for H&K when it comes to sales of their G36 rifle. More modern than the M16 design currently used by the US and other countries, the G36 has had a series of embarrassing failures that led to the German government looking for a replacement much sooner than expected. H&K wants […]

New from Adams Arms: 6.5 Creedmoor, 243 Win ARs

Adams Arms, manufacturer of piston powered AR-15 rifles, is releasing two new ARs at SHOT this year. Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and 243 Winchester, the rifles come with the usual slathering of MLOK rails and Magpul accessories that you would expect. An optional upgraded America gold trigger is available from the factory as well. We’ve […]

Question of the Day: Why Don’t You Own an IWI Tavor?

I swear I’m not pimping for IWI. I simply believe that the Tavor bullpup is the best inside and outside toy rifle money can buy. It’s wieldy, reliable, accurate (enough) and fun! And now that you can buy a Tavor . . with a more-than-merely-adequate trigger chambered in .308 — suppressed, with a three position […]

Hands on with the Mauser M18

With an MSRP of $699 (street closer to $600 I bet) the German-made retro modern Mauser is sure to be a hit. Slinging lead through the rifle, the action was smooth, the stock was comfortable and it shot where I aimed. Das Bueno. The list of features is on par with others in the market: – […]

New from Mossberg: MVP Precision Bolt Action Rifle

Ruger introduced their Precision Rifle back in 2015. Word comes today that Mossberg is launching a competitor, their own Precision Bolt Action Rifle based on their MVP line of rifles. Available in 6.5 Creedmoor and 7.62 NATO (like the RPR) and in a chassis which supports detachable magazines and all the usual bells and whistles, […]
