ATF Opens Comment Period on Proposed Ban on Popular Shotguns

Following a study released last week by the ATF on the legality of importing shotguns with “non-sporting” features, many shooters and sportsmen expressed outrage. Following the release of that study, the ATF has opened up a 30-day comment period for feedback on its proposed ban on the importation of shotguns with certain “non-sporting features.”


Mossberg Tactical .22

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. They essentially put a 702 Plinkster inside an AR-15 style body. The Tactical .22 utilizes standard Plinkster magazines housed inside an AR style magazine body. Naturally it also has the Plinkster’s well-known accuracy and reliability.

SIG SAUER’s SIG716 7.62×51 NATO

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. Four different models were shown; a standard carbine model with a 14.5″ barrel, a 16″ patrol version, a longer and heavier precision marksman model, and a NFA regulated SBR model for CQB with a 12.5″ barrel. All of the models accept standard 7.62×51 MagPul PMAGs and are shipped with these direct from the factory.
