After the introduction of the Glock in the early 1980s, it didn’t take long for other manufacturers to copy the polymer-frame concept. Today there are a plethora of plastic pistols to choose from. While you might think the newest generation of polymer handguns fall short of the standard Glock set, …

I’ve enjoyed shooting AR-15 type pistols in a variety of calibers including .223 Rem., .300 BLK, 7.62×39 mm and even the thumpy .450 Bushmaster. But the Big Kahunas of the AR pistol set are built around AR-10 receivers and chambered in 7.62 NATO and .308 Win. And as readers know, if there’s a …

Viridian Weapon Technologies is rolling out a game-changing hand stop laser, the HS1, which is now available with an infrared beam.

The company’s Roughneck derringer is Bond’s entry-level option, but don’t let that fool you, as the quality of its materials and craftsmanship …

The new Colt Anaconda has been briefly summarized as a .44 Mag. built on an oversize Python frame and action. I’m thinking someone should have added the word “dramatically” to that description. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen or handled a new Python, but I was almost overwhelmed upon first …

Classics never go out of style, and SIG Sauer acknowledges that fact by still offering the time-proven P210 semi-automatic handgun with a host of subtle and modern upgrades. The design dates back to 1947 and the pistol was officially adopted by the Swiss Army in 1949. The semi-auto operates from a locked …

It was born during the Cold War to give the French military an 800-meter precision platform in 7.62 NATO, but it ended up serving through to a more complicated era. When it entered service in 1986, there was still a Soviet Union and there was still, therefore, an ideological struggle …

Diamondback Firearms is introducing the Diamondback Sidekick, a 9-shot, single- and double-action rimfire revolver that has an interchangeable swing-out cylinder. The Sidekick has a 9-round capacity in either .22 LR or .22 Magnum. Both cylinders use the quickly convertible swing-out arm for fast interchangeability, allowing the user to switch between standard …
