Range Report: Diamondback DB15 Rifle

Purchasing an AR-15 rifle was far simpler when the only choice was Colt. Later, we had Armalite and a few others. Today, I cannot count the makers.

There is a lot of talent in the business. Diamondback’s DB15 exemplifies such talent.

Range Report: Springfield Saint AR-15

The SAINT is the first AR-15 to wear the Springfield name. That fact should not be lost on anyone looking to purchase their next long gun. That SAINT is billed as entry, and by today’s standards the price point may not be inline with that moniker.

As a Springfield fan the SAINT will take its place beside my 1903 Springfield and the modern 1911 Operator, but there is more to the puzzle than the name.

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.
