Blaser Tactical Magazine Analysis

Can’t post too much on this. But we occasionally get private messages about this subject. Since we can’t address specifics, all I can show is this photo.  So what it is? One of our outside vendors measuring Blaser Tactical 2 / LRS 2 magazines. Infer from that what you will.      Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

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 Law Enforcement Buy

It has been brought to my attention that a US based police department is negotiating a ONE-TIME buy for Blaser Tactical 2 barrels. These would be coming from Germany.  I do not have time lines or prices as they have not been set yet. The purchase will be for barrels only. Not magazines. The calibers available will only be the 4 …

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. …

Good Day, Bad Day, Same Day

So a few days ago, Freeze and I were discussing something he has been forced to wrap his head around: Bad video.  When you shoot video, there will be bad video. Hell! Someone out there probably thinks all my video is bad video. And that’s fair.  But don’t get it twisted…we don’t speed up or fluff stuff to make us …

POTD – SCAR-20 / Blaser Tactical 2

Doc and I spent some time at the cool kid range playing with our precision rigs. It’s hard to imagine by the looks, but the Blaser is 25 years older than the SCAR-20.        Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

This Pump Pillow is a Thing

So…a few weeks back, I had decided to up my rear bag game. For a decade, I have essentially used only the same one. But where to start? Obviously, “Officer Mike” of course! Not only is he a SWAT sniper, but he is always on the cutting edge of shooting gear. If he doesn’t own it? He knows about it.  …

Hostage Rescue at Ice Station Zebra

Doc and I were at the Uber-private, cool-kid, LEO-only range recently. It’s a range I have heard about for at least 15 years, but had never accepted an invite to attend. Until today.  Once the SWAT Snipers were done shooting, Doc and I took some time to do some testing on targets that were just assembled an hour prior. They …

Straight Pull: Ross Rifle vs Blaser 

Straight Pull: Ross Rifle vs Blaser  User question: What are the differences between the Ross straight pull and the Blaser straight pulls?  In short? Everything. Besides both being straight pull rifles, they share almost no mechanical technology or heritage.  See video for my complete explanation.    Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Is My Lite Trigger Drop-Safe? 

Last week there was a big dust up in PRS circles over super light triggers and negligent discharges. Without getting too deep in the woods on PRS, it made me wonder? Is my trigger drop safe? Or maybe more appropriately bump safe? There is a bump-stock joke writing itself in the previous sentence. But I digress.  So after researching what …

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 …

XTEK Chassis in the Wild

Reader Tony N. in Australia sent me some interesting photographs.  The Australian Defense Force (Army) use Blaser Tactical 2 rifles as one of their precision platforms. As to be expected, a local defense contractor known as XTEK was able to secure some contracts upgrading these rifles.  Principally they worked on custom magazines to increase capacity and a chassis system.  Both …

POTD – 155g 308

A friend loaded some 155g 308s for me to test this week. We’re going to see how it prints at 100 yards and then decide if we want to pursue load development. This will be done in the Blaser Tactical 2.  The book: An old story as told by a man who was based in Singapore during the Japanese invasion …
