Gun Review: SIG SAUER MPX Pistol

The SIG SAUER MPX might be the most anticipated new “rifle” among TTAG’s readers. Sight unseen in the civilian market, they awarded it the highest honor last year naming it 2014’s Best New Rifle, and now after months of delays the first guns are assembled, boxed, and shipping out. Wanting to avoid the same kind […]

Gun Review: Lancer Systems L15 Lower Receiver

Visiting Lancer Systems’ homepage will probably surprise most shooters who know its firearms parts, as the company actually manufactures precision parts for a handful of markets and is fairly large. Their experience in aerospace, carbon fiber and ceramic composites, seals, bearings, offshore drilling rig components, etc, transfers over to the commercially-available firearms and components listed on its webstore. […]

Gun Review: Dan Wesson 715 .357 Revolver

  We would all be lucky to have a reputation as stellar as Dan Wesson revolvers do. Unfortunately, hope as gun owners did, DW didn’t manufacture any for many years. Except for only a few special runs, newly manufactured Dan Wesson firearms have been as rare as a unicorn since about 1998. And, I believe, […]

Gun Review: VLTOR XVI Warrior Carbine

VLTOR is a company known for their line of firearms accessories and aftermarket parts, but not many people seem to realize they also make a variety of ready-made firearms as well. Naturally the rifles use VLTOR’s parts where possible, but they don’t skimp on the details and seem to use other brands when they make […]

Gun Review: Law Enforcement Trade-In GLOCK 22

  My go-to FFL, Best Buy Surplus, has always had a steady supply of law-enforcement trade-in GLOCKs. Suffice it to say, they’re fans of the genre. Last month they received a shipment of more than 300 of these pistols — mostly G22s (.40 S&W), but also a lot of G21s (.45ACP) as well — and […]

Cabot Black Diamond: Exonerated?

A couple of weeks ago RF called me to say Cabot Guns wanted me to test their Black Diamond 1911. Again. “Cabot wants you to come up to Pennsylvania, see their facility and shoot the gun.” My initial reaction was not positive. “You should just let them know it’s probably not going to go well,” […]

Gun Review: GLOCK 34 Gen 4

This is a reader gun review.  By Renegade Dave If you’ve ever shot a defensive pistol match, you probably came away with a couple conclusions. The first is that “tactical” vests are probably the worst/most obvious “concealment” garment a civilian could ever hope for. The Second is that the GLOCK 34 is as ubiquitous as bad […]

Gun Review: FNS-9 Compact 9mm Handgun

FNH makes a mountain of money milking the military market with firearms in a kaleidoscope of calibers and configurations. Perhaps that’s why the Belgian gunmaker hasn’t been chasing American handgun buyers with the kind of fervor of, well, anyone else. The long wait for FN’s entry into the striker-fired everyday carry handgun market indicates a laissez faire attitude towards the job of winning converts to John Moses Browning’s vieux […]

Gun Review: CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Pistol

  The CZ Scorpion for this review was provided by Kentucky Gun Company.  My favorite SMG (submachine gun) of all time is the Škorpion vz. 61. It’s not the prettiest, or the most powerful, but it’s an absolute joy to shoot and (much like the AR-15) is a bare-essentials kind of gun. Nothing was added […]

Gun Review: Remington Mohawk 600 in 6mm Rem

(This is a reader gun review contest entry, click here for more details.) By Russ C in Alaska I am a lifelong hunter/shooter and an avid reader of TTAG since the days of Sandy Hook. I’ve long wanted to do a gun review but didn’t own any firearms that everybody didn’t already know about. Also, I’m […]
