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 handgun. Well, […]

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 […]

Gun Review: Kimber EVO SP (TLE) 9mm

Kimber is a company best known for its 1911-format pistols, both large and small. So when I heard they were dipping their toe [back] into the striker-fired sub-compact world, I admit to having some reservations. After all, the Kimber Solo didn’t exactly earn a good reputation, going from shiny new object of affection to discredited, unreliable […]

Gun Review: Savage Arms MKII FV-SR Threaded Barrel 22 LR

Shooters are seeing a lot of factory-threaded barrels that accept sound suppressors and other muzzle devices, and rimfire rifles, such as the Savage MKII FV-SR Threaded Barrel 22LR, are part of this new supply. In the past, I’ve thought of suppressors as add-ons to my GLOCK 9mm pistol or a Remington .45 ACP 1911, but […]

Gun Review: Stoeger M3000 Freedom Series Defense Shotgun

After reviewing Stoeger guns for a while, I’m not surprised by the M3000 Tactical at all. Stoeger’s owned by Benelli and the company offers good Turkish-made guns at an affordable price. 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 […]

Gun Review: GLOCK 34 MOS Gen 5 FS 9mm

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: FN 509 Midsize 9mm Pistol

FN America took their line of striker-fired pistols in a new direction in 2017 with the introduction of the FN 509. It was born out of their entry in the Army’s modular handgun system competition. They said at the time that the 509 had more than 1 million rounds to ensure that their new flagship […]
