Kel-Tec’s newest revolutionary bull-pup design was announced over the weekend on the cover of the NSSF’s Shooting Industry magazine. Details of the new shotgun are sketchy, but presumably all will be made known at the upcoming NSSF SHOT Show.
We spoke with Remington-sponsored shooter Robby Johnson in 2010 to discuss his competition in 3-gun events and his history in the shooting sports.

Mossberg recently released their entry into the rimfire AR-15 style rifle they’ve dubbed the Tactical .22. When creating their new rifle, Mossberg saw no reason to reinvent the wheel.

The SIG 556 Russian wasn’t the only new exciting rifle unveiled by Sig Sauer at the 2011 SHOT Show: The new SIG716 rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO was on display at their booth at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

When Remington calls and asks if you’d like to go down to Argentina to test its newest autoloading shotgun while hunting dove, there’s only one answer, “Yes!” Singer and gun writer Sheriff Jim Wilson got just that opportunity. When he got back, we had the opportunity to talk to him about his experience with Remington’s newest long gun, the 12 gauge Versa Max.
Installing a trigger guard on an AR-15 is probably the step that most often leads to failure for a novice assembling their first lower. Left unsupported, the ears that hold the roll pin, which secures the rear portion of the trigger guard, can easily break off.
Installing the fire control group of an AR-15 rifle is actually one of easier steps.
In this segment of our continuing series on building your own AR-15, we cover how to install the bolt catch. If you’re like me, you’ve mangled half a dozen bolt catch roll pins over the years and put more than a few dings into your lower receiver. But it does not have to be that way.
