Timney Makes the Best AR Trigger, Hammers Down

Hello, my name is Kat and I am a trigger snob. It’s true. After years of using all manner of triggers in every platform imaginable I’ve developed the kind of tastes that drain wallets and involve occasional grumbling – okay, cursing – at grit and stacking (no matter how slight). Earlier today it was a […]

Book Review: The AR-15 Complete Assembly Guide (Vol. 2)

I didn’t realize how much I missed instructional books until last month when a copy of The AR-15 Complete Assembly Guide (Vol.2)  by Walt Kuleck and Clint McKee arrived at my doorstep with the inaugural parts of my latest project, the FAR-15 rifle.

Gear Review: Warne TW65 Torque Wrench (1/4″ Drive, 65-in/lbs)

Warne produces some mighty fine optics mounts. Like many other quality-seeking shooters, I’ve trusted their products for years and have their MSR and tactical mount 1/2-inch hex nut torque specification engrained in my brain – 65-inch/pounds.
