SHOT Show Range Day: Integrally Suppressed KelTec SUB2000

KelTec was quietly showing off an integrally suppressed SUB2000 prototype at SHOT Show’s Range Day, and it was a huge hit. For obvious reasons. The folding, lightweight 9mm carbine is a super handy little gun, and suppressing it within the footprint of a 16-inch barrel is a big win. This is an entirely in-house project […]

Hands-On With SIG SAUER’s New CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle

On Sunday the TTAG crew attended SIG SAUER’S range event and put some rounds through their new CROSS rifle. A lightweight, modern take on the bolt-action rifle, the CROSS is sure to turn heads and generate interest among precision shooters as well as hunters. Weighing in at just 6.5 pounds, the CROSS is lighter than […]

Gun Review: Ruger-57 5.7x28mm Pistol

Raise your hand if you saw this one coming. No? Nobody? Me either. From straight out of left field, Ruger has surprised us all with the new Ruger-57, a polymer-framed, full-size pistol chambered in the high velocity 5.7x28mm cartridge. And it’s awesome. If you aren’t familiar with the 5.7×28, it’s basically a .224-inch (exact same […]

Gun Review: Kalashnikov USA KR-9 (a 9mm ‘AK’)

Based on Russia’s go-to submachine gun, the Vityaz-SN, which in turn was based on the AK-74, Kalashnikov USA’s KR-9 brings AK form factor to the pistol caliber carbine (and pistol, and SBR) market. And it does this in a surprisingly refined, smooth, and fun-to-shoot fashion. First thing’s first: yes, the KR-9’s muzzle is threaded in […]

Things That Don’t Suck: Magpul Bipods

When Magpul first released the aptly named Magpul Bipod in mid-2018, I didn’t get the appeal. It appeared to be effectively all-polymer, and I tend to lean into my bipods and load them up fairly firmly. So I had doubts. But then I got my hands on one, and my opinion changed 180 degrees. Magpul’s […]

Gun Review: Alpha Foxtrot AF1911 Government 9mm Pistol

There’s something about a 1911 blasphemously chambered in 9x19mm that I love. And you should love it, too. It’s everything that’s good about the 1911 platform smoothed out and refined with a significantly lighter recoil spring and a silkier, flatter, faster shooting experience. This new entrant to the 9mm 1911 market comes from Alpha Foxtrot, […]

Bergara Introduces the B-14 R .22 LR Rifle

One of the very best uses of inexpensive, soft-shooting .22 LR ammunition is in training to properly shoot a full-size, centerfire rifle. All the better if your .22 LR firearm (or conversion kit) precisely matches your centerfire firearm in size, weight, ergonomics, trigger, controls, etc. New from Bergara is the B-14 R, which does just […]
