When the IWI Galil ACE 32 in 7.62×39 arrived at TTAG’s secret above-ground bunker, I […]

Gun Review: Remington Model 1911 R1

  (This is a reader-submitted review as part of our gun review contest. See details here.) By Brad Peirson I have this thing with image association. When someone says “truck,” I picture a Chevy.

Gun Review: Steyr L9-A1 9mm Pistol

(This is a reader-submitted review as part of our gun review contest. See details here.) By Matt M. It worked. It just worked.

(This is a reader-submitted review as part of our gun review contest. See details here.)

Gun Review: Brocock Contour XL G6 Air Rifle

Call me old fashioned, but I like my rifles to take ammunition that contains all the parts necessary to make a projectile pop out the end of the barrel. You know, powder, primer, case, and all. So when our fearless leader handed me a package from Air Guns of Arizona that contained a Brocock Contour […]

Gun Review: M+M M10x Elite Rifle

M+M Industries hit the scene a few years ago importing M10 (AKM pattern) rifles from the Cujir factory in Romania. Combining a good price point and high quality, the M10 was well received.
