Review: Ruger 10/22 M1 Carbine

Among the most useful, reliable and practically accurate .22 caliber rifles made is the Ruger 10/22. Introduced in 1964, the Ruger 10/22 has become the most popular .22 rimfire rifle in America. I mean, who hasn’t owned one or at least wished they had? Building on the legacy of the 10/22, RUger has introduced the Ruger 10/22 M1 Carbine. Among the notable features of the 10/22 M1 is a protected front sight that keeps with the military appearance theme. However, the most interesting modification to the original Ruger 10/22 is the rear sight, but that’s not all that makes this baby M1 honor it military theme. Rad the full article in celebration of October 22nd (10/22).

The Anderson Rifle is The World’s Only NO LUBE Rifle!

The Anderson Rifle is the only rifle in the world that never requires lubrication. It is only possible because it is permanently treated with RF85—the nano technology that injects calcium into the molecular fabric of the metal. RF85 is permanent. It is in the metal. RF85 reduces friction 85% and wears with the metal. Under heat and pressure, the calcium nano particles elongate and form a protective barrier that eliminates the need for lubrication. Watch to see whether the rifle lives up to the hype.

Review: Leatherman Sidekick and Rebar

In the last five years, I have become a bit picky about what should be on a survival based multi-tool and what is just extra weight. Cruising the pages of my favorite sporting goods retailer, the Sidekick and Rebar caught my eye. The primary reason was that they featured just the right combination of features in two distinctly different packages.

Range Report: Canik’s Affordable High Tech 9mm

In a world awash with mediocre handguns, a pistol with reliability, accuracy, and good features at a fair price is a desirable commodity. The Canik TP9SA exemplifies this concept. The Canik 55 9mm pistol is similar in outline to the Smith and Wesson SW99 and Walther P99. It is not an exact clone, but clearly, the designer was familiar with the Walther pistol. The Canik 55 is a service-size 9mm with a polymer frame, mid-size slide and 4.25-inch barrel, but how did it fare on the range and for self-defense? Read the full review to find out.

Charter Arms Pitbull revolver with American Eagle ammunition

Firearms

Range Report: Charter Arms Pitbull in .45 ACP

This Pitbull—like all the other models in the Pitbull series—is designed to fire a rimless, semi-automatic pistol cartridge. The unique feature of the Pitbull series is the ejector has a built in spring loaded plunger for each chamber that is depressed when a cartridge is inserted into the chamber and snaps back out into the extractor groove of the rimless cartridge case. With this system there is no need for moonclips. The chambers are also stepped, so .45 ACP cases headspace on the case mouth.

Video Review: Henry Repeating Arms Octagon Pump Action Rimfire .22 Mag

The Henry Pump Action Octagon .22 joins faded jeans, mom’s apple pie, and a restored ’57 Chevy as an all-American icon. Now fitted with a blue octagonal barrel, it resurrects the great old days of the traditional shooting gallery. The Henry Pump Octagon, available in calibers .22LR or .22 Magnum, is one gun that is built for fun.

Test Run: Hornady Steel Match

Steel-cased loads are viable and most of all affordable. Therefore, the author was very interested to see Hornady offering a Steel Match line. These are not rebranded loads but rather steel-cased cartridge cases loaded by Hornady with Hornady projectiles. That means a lot. This makes the loads viable for hunting provided they are accurate enough for this pursuit, and the powder technology addresses one of the primary concerns with steel cased ammunition—powder fouling.

Range Report: Walther PPS M2 — Redefining Conceal Carry

Walther’s new PPS M2 is an excellent example of the refinement Walther brings to conceal carry pistols. The original PPS Classic ushered a 9mm conceal carry pistol that was thin, polymer framed with modular backstraps, and a striker fire trigger. The M2 does the Classic one better by using all the great features of the Classic and combining it with features found on the Walther PPQ series such as the ergonomic grip shape and grippy texture.
