A Great Ruger Trigger in Minutes

Bx trigger: Ruger’s new BX Trigger for the 10/22 rifle drops in easily and has a trigger pull of about 2 3/4 pounds pull.   I have to hand it to Ruger for its constant innovation—especially applying new ideas to time-proven products.  Polymer-frame revolvers and the new delta ring/nut on the AR-556 are just two examples of this innovation. Right …

Magneto Speed Chronograph Testing.

  A co-worker of mine recently purchased a Magneto Speed Chronograph. This is a big upgrade to this 20 year old 3 screen model. I joined him on the range to test it out on his SCAR 17 and my Blaser Tactical 2. Here are my quick impressions: 1. Very quick to setup when compared to tradition screened models. 2. …

Les Baer TRS 1911 with 30,000 Rounds

I will say this right up front: I have a pet peeve. Especially when it concerns 1911 users. The hypocrisy. Have your attention yet? About to be offended? Relax. Hear me out. One syndrome I dislike in the 1911 community is the obsession on “perfection”. On one hand, you will see this group talk about how the “1911 got it …

Scope Mounting Tip: Using a Bubble Level : By Scott Mayer

Scope Mounting Tip   For the most part, mounting a scope is a home-gunsmithing proposition. Most guns today come either pre-drilled and tapped for bases or with some type of rail system for tip-off rings.

Hard Primer Testing. 308 ASYM Ammo.

  We were out getting some training and I had a hard-primer strike.  Well…at first I didn’t know it was that. I was fearful the issue was something wrong with the FP / striker in my Blaser. After pulling the bullet (ASYM 175g 308), checking there was powder, and putting the unloaded case in an AR to see if I …

338 Lapua Rifle KaBoom.

Here are some photos of a Savage 338 Lapua that suffered a catastrophic failure when the user, finding his brass cases were sticking in the chamber, was using cleaning rod to push them out. It is my understanding that this user was quite experienced and just had a “brain fart” and forgot what he was doing.   The shooter was …

Home Camo Job on Your Rifle. Sig Sauer / Blaser Tactical 2

The Blaser project has been proceeding nicely. It’s a very nice rifle with lots of features but still doesn’t weigh a metric S-Ton. The only minor complaint I have against it is the color. In our part of the world (East of the Mississippi) black shapes stick out almost as bad as white. So we have known from day one …

10-8 Performance Sites on Glock 19 Gen 4 FDE.

I’ve always been a big fan of 10-8 Performance. I use some of Hilton Yam’s parts on my 1911s. I am very comfortable with the ledge type site that he sells. So I am taking some time this winter to get those sites installed on my new Glock 19 Gen 4 in FDE. We will be posting more pics and …
