Ruger’s newest rifle combines a 7.62 NATO chambering with an AR-15-size platform to create what might be the ultimate sport-utility rifle. For the past decade or so, the launch of a new AR-platform firearm has been hyped by the manufacturer with all sorts of claims about how it is faster …

As part of the company that includes the successful Bergara franchise, CVA entered long-range muzzleloading holding a wildcard that allows it to match or exceed custom performance with a production rifle. To an even greater extent than with cartridge guns, barrels are the key to frontloader accuracy, and ever since their introduction …

Affordable .22 rimfire rifles have been a traditional favorite for generations of American shooters. They’ve harvested a lot of small game, bounced many a tin can, and taught legions of young shooters the safe operation of firearms. Though they’ve fared less well in the competitive shooting arena, the newest addition …

The time has come for President Joe Biden and the rest of the gun control politicians to pack up the worn-out line that “no one needs an AR-15 to hunt deer.” Turns out, recreational target shooters and hunters do want Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs). That’s the family of AR-platform [semiautomatic] …

It’s truly incredible what men will do to go around tyrannical bureaucrats and agents of the state infringing on our rights.

SIG Sauer recently released two new pistol-caliber suppressors that are distinctly different in several ways from the company’s more established SRD series.

SilencerCo has a reputation for making some top shelf suppressors and always pushing the envelope with new development. While the company continues to offer suppressors for the rifle, pistol, shotgun and rimfire markets, it has also branched out into new turf, making firearms such as the Maxim integrally suppressed pistol and …

Beretta’s M9 pistol served proudly as the official sidearm for our troops for nearly three decades. It exhibited a remarkable ability to evolve as the Global War Against Terrorism required it to adapt to a variety of missions unthought of when it officially fielded in 1985. The 9 mm semi-automatic thrived …

When Smith & Wesson decided to build its first shotgun in 50 years, I’m guessing it took a hard look at the scattergun market, scouting for opportunity. Remington, the manufacturer of the vaunted 870 pump shotgun, was having trouble unrelated to that model, so that must’ve seemed auspicious. Even so, the really …

A year ago, TriStar Arms introduced its Bristol line of side-by-side shotguns, which offer the traditional elegance and functionality of a classic side-by-side at an affordable price that doesn’t deter field use. Now the English-stocked, color case-hardened model and the gold-adorned, laser-engraved Silver model are available in 16-gauge. Like the rest of the Bristol line, …
