Fake Iraqi AK Rifles

Here’s another pro-tip for the home-gamers. Buy the gun, not the story. These are not “Iraqi AK’s”, dude. They aren’t. If you buy one, do so because you like it. Not because you bought into the story. And especially DON’T PAY MORE for the story. Inevitably when you go to get rid of it, or your decedents take possession of …

VZ 58 Folding Stock DIY Modification

Freeze has had some VZ 58 parts kits for many years. When the Century VZ’s started showing up in county he was ready to go. One thing he has done is take some 550 para-cord and wrapped it around the VZ 58 folding stock. Which the folder is very convenient for storage, it basically sucks for actual shooting. Under recoil …

Carry the Pistol You Want to Carry

Since I mentioned Glocks in a recent post, I have been getting some questions about what my preferred Glock is? My opinion is somewhat in the minority since it ISN’T the Glock 19. You see, I don’t have the smallest hands and I find the Glock 19 just a little too small for complete comfort grip-wise. And if I am …

Boresighting CZ 452

It seems I have more .22 competition coming. After posting the pics of our friends Kimber CMP rifle, Freeze has decided to pull out his CZ 452 and get it ready for some trash talking as well. The rumor is quality bourbon is at stake. I best get cracking on the Winchester 52 project.     You know Freeze is …

Casting Bullets — By Scott Mayer

It’s Past Time To Start Casting Your Bullets Growing up I was captivated by the accounts of the late Col. Harrison and his experiments with cast bullets in high-power centerfire rifles. Performance there is tough to accomplish, but for handgunners the bar is set much lower and with ammo still being scarce and expensive, you really should consider setting up …

Bolt on Rail Body for 1911

Like many of you, I have seen stories about these bolt-on rail-body kits (Recover Tactical) for 1911s. I have never given them much mind. As a tried and true 1911 guy, I am impressed by the idea of yet another aftermarket product for a 100 year old design. The images you see here are of a model I found on …

Kimber Government CMP 22 Rifle

A few months back I picked up a Winchester 52 from an estate sale. Came with Redfield sights and a Unertl optic. It was an impulse buy and nobody I know had such a rifle. Turns out I was wrong. A good friend of ours who is a retired Camp Perry shooter pulled out a Kimber .22 precision rifle. As …

77g 223 Match Handloads

If you shoot a lot. And you shoot for precision, hand loading is probably in your wheel house. Either you load it, or someone in your support structure loads it for you. This may seem like an odd post coming from me since I typically shoot 55g standard.223 ammunition. But in our support staff, 1000 rounds of 77g match grade …

Pic of Day: Bullet in the Dryer

9mm 124g FMJ in Dryer If you are an avid shooter, this situation will be familiar to you. I was opening my dryer the other day and viola! I see sitting on the lint trap ledge a shiny, freshly cleaned 9mm 124 FMJ round. Loaded. It happens. Practicing reloading, malfunction clearance drills, etc. Lose rounds end up in the damnedest …

The subject in question was distraught and threatening to harm himself and others. As of this writing, I am not even sure the subject possessed a firearm. But what caught my …

S&W 547 Front Sight Paint

Pro-Tip. I like to shoot accurately. But I also like to shoot fast. As least as fast as I am capable while maintaining accuracy. To facilitate this, you will see me paint the front sight on just about every firearm I can. When you see accomplished shooters who also shoot fast, invariably you find some variation of this upgrade. Be …
