Best AR in (My) Life: Axelson Tactical Black Pearl

ARs are not created equally. There are degrees of differences among the various AR-platform rifles from near-indecipherable nuances to impossible-to-miss distinctions; some variations are only Cerakote-deep while others become blatantly obvious when you squeeze the trigger.

ArmaLite Releases Limited Edition AR-10 in .243 Winchester

Earlier today, Charles Blackwell at Sharp Shooters Knife & Gun told TTAG that Governor Rick Perry used a less-than-ideal gun for shooting a coyote. Blackwell recommended an AR-15 instead. And then Arthur Steadman at ArmaLite sent us a heads-up on the Illinois’ gunmaker’s limited run AR-10 chambered in .243 Winchester. “High speed and accuracy make […]
