Strap-Wrench Is a Must

If you are going to shoot threaded barrels or suppressors in any kind of volume? We highly recommend you keep a strap wrench handy.  I know. I know. It’ll never happen to you because reasons. But I can just about guarantee somebody, somewhere, in your shooting circle will end up needing one.  For those considering one,  a two-pack can be …

Personal Training Day

Had the Blaser Tactical 2 out. 308 barrel on. Shooting some of Doc’s 155g hand-loads.  This was a personal training session so I didn’t film any content or produce any articles. But I know some of you like to see the Blaser, so what harm is a few pics?   Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Blaser Tac 2 Protest Overwatch

With all the Marxist violence that has been taking place across the country, our nation’s SWAT teams have been very busy. Why you ask?  Simple. Do you know ahead of time if the planned protest in your neck of the woods will be peaceful? Or violent? SWAT teams don’t operate behind the curve. If things go sideways? They are ready. …

What is Wolf Gold Ammo?

We bought some 55g Wolf Gold ammo for some of our tac rifles. But it got me thinking: Does “Gold” mean match? Since I fire Wolf 55g steel in this gun, why not put the Gold to test and find out? The answer: It’s 55g military ball ammo. It’s not trash ammo. But it definitely is bulk ammo.  Sure, I …

Blaser Tactical 2 Import

This isn’t definite, but I have detected at least two dealers with NIB Blaser Tactical 2’s in stock. When reaching out to one dealer about this item, we inquired: New, Used, or New Old Stock? The dealer reported it was a newly imported rifle. And by the looks of the box, that appears to be the case.  So…has the German …

Range Construction- 600 Yard Test

Update on the range construction. What I’m doing here is testing line of sight and theoretical shooting positions for shots from 600 and 700 yards.  I placed the target down the hill at 550 to give me some breathing room Incase there was an issue. Or out this way: DON’T SHOT OVER THE TARGET. All went well. We will tell …

Blaser Tactical 2 Service Manuals 

Special thanks to “Officer Jerry” for sending over some very neat manuals for the Blaser Tactical 2. An official Armourer’s Manual and a official Blaser Service Schedule / maintenance manual.  I have decided to post them here for public download.

My Best 1000 Yard Group Doesn’t Count

Now to answer the next logical question: Why? The reasoning is simple. Around here, a 3 shot group is a liar’s group. Only 5 shot groups count. No exceptions. The rifle: Blaser Tactical 2 Caliber 308. Ammunition: 175g ASYM Ammunition 308. Range: 1000 yards. Rounds Fired: 6 Situation. Rifle holds 5 rounds. First round trying to dope wind is a …

Unexpected Visitor — Black Bear

While confirming some dope on the way back down from 1000 yards, I had something happen that has never happened before. A 200 pound male Black Bear (Spotter said it was a bull. I have no idea) walked right into my field of view and in front of my 600 yard steel target. Truthfully, for about a millisecond I about …

Damn. I Need to Buy Scope Rings

Was hoping to be able to mount this scope with rings we have in the armory. Turns out, the Badger 1.125 high rings are just a hair too short. I mean just a hair. The bell just barely contacts the base. I could shim it, but just learned we have a standing credit with a vendor, so we’ll just cash …

Looking For Blaser 556 Barrel

I wasn’t really sure what to title this post. The runner-ups: “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get it up!” “Desperately Seeking Susan” “Das Barrel!!!” “Dreams of My Sewer Pipe” “It puts the lotion…” Anyway, you get the idea. But in the end, it’s just a simple request for help. Here’s the problem. My main precision rifle is a Blaser Tactical …
