Optics Review: Atibal Apex 4-14×44 FFP Riflescope

TTAG is slowly ending my scope snobbery. Well, less TTAG itself and a lot more the opportunity to shoot through increasingly better quality budget glass. A while back I wrote about my go-to-review optic, the Atibal Nomad 3-12×44. That particular scope reviewed extremely well and kept me on the lookout for Atibal’s scopes in the […]

Gun Review: Ruger AR-556 Pistol

Ruger has had a few lines of AR pattern rifles out for years now. Five years ago they released their budget minded series, the AR-556. Now Ruger’s entered the braced AR pistol market with a similar budget-minded offering, the Ruger AR-556 pistol with SB Tactical’s SBA3 brace. This is, obviously, not a MIL-STD AR. I […]

With the semi-automatic M3000 Freedom Series Defense shotgun, Stoeger has delivered again, giving the budget-minded shooter a lot shotgun for not a lot of money. The […]

The GLOCK 34 MOS Gen5 FS. I know what you’re thinking. “It’s just like the new GLOCK 17 MOS, only longer.” And in fact, it’s just like the new GLOCK 17 MOS, only longer. The new G34 may be like the other Gen 5 GLOCK guns, but there are a few changes to previous generations. […]

Gun Review: Heckler and Koch SP5K 9mm Pistol

Over the last few years, we’ve all heard that one gun or the next will be the “MP5 Killer.” None of them have been that “MP5 killer.” In fact, roller lock firearms, and MP5 clones in general, are making a big comeback. Many companies are making inexpensive semi-automatic MP5 clones, and a few are making expensive […]
