Gun Review: Kiote Rifles LRP in 6mm SLR

Last year, John Stewart of Kiote Rifles made my dream come true by building my “last rifle”. That Ruger No 1 in .375 H&H Magnum really is the last rifle I’ll ever need. Oh…but want is a different thing entirely. This year I found myself shooting varmints a little farther out, and decided to get […]

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 […]

Gun Review: Heckler & Koch Mark 23 .45 ACP

Though some would disagree, the Heckler & Koch Mark 23 .45 ACP semi-automatic handgun is not a unicorn. It actually exists and can be purchased if you’ve got the coin. It stands alongside Colt Single Action Army revolvers, Smith & Wesson Model 29s, Browning Hi-Power 9mms, custom handguns from top-end makers like Les Baer, and other […]

Gun Review: Kalashnikov USA KS-12 and KS-12T Shotguns

TTAG’s Nick Leghorn did a solid review of his Saiga 12 experience back when it was still imported from the motherland. After 2014, Kalashnikov USA became its own boy, independent of mommy. Today, Kalashnikov USA makes the KS-12 true to the original Russian Saiga design, but with a consistent quality rarely found across the former […]

Gun Review: Ruger Security-9 Compact 9mm Pistol

Some things can’t really be improved upon. Take, for instance, Jeremy’s review of the full-size Ruger Security-9 9mm pistol we published last January. He pretty much nailed it. Ruger’s now making a compact size model and from re-reading his take, I can confidently echo virtually everything he had to say about the bigger gun. Well, almost. […]

Gun Review: Beretta APX Carry 9mm

Beretta’s APX striker-fired 9mm is a top-tier duty gun; one that I can’t help but feel is oft-overlooked. But not by Jon Wayne Taylor, who liked the RDO, Centurion, and Compact to the tune of a strong 4 stars or by Dan Zimmerman, who gave the Full Size a full-on 5 stars and often carries it […]

Gun Review: SIG SAUER MPX Copperhead 9mm Pistol

By Mitch Hardin Origins of a Copperhead SIG SAUER officially released the MPX Copperhead Pistol at SHOT Show 2019 in Sin City, USA, this past January. Some may be curious where the “Copperhead” name came from. According to SIG SAUER, the MPX Copperhead was a project developed very similar to the Rattler SBR. The goal […]
