Gun Preview: Benelli M4 Civilian Tactical

You asked for it and we got it – a Benelli M4 Civilian. Supposedly this is the gun that settles the Mossberg SPX vs. FN SLP vs. Remington Versa-Max tactical debate. For those who aren’t familiar with the M4, this is the same gun the U.S. Marine Corps are using. The M4 strays away from […]

Gun Review: Remington Model 700 ADL .243

Yes, you read that correctly – this is a review of the Remington 700 ADL. I’m not talking about that dusty, walnut-stocked bargain gun your grandfather bought back in the 1970’s.

After working for the past 6 years as a chemist in the semiconductor research and development world, my career will be making a drastic switch this […]

TTAG Gear Review: Mildot Master

Everyone who has looked to purchase a scope has without a doubt run across the “mil”, “MOA”, and “milrad” abbreviations. I have a top-notch factory Remington 700 (XCR Tactical Long Range) that is just itching to be tested. The only problem was deciding on what glass to purchase. I eventually decided and placed my order […]
