The interior of a rifle’s bore is a mystery to most shooters. When a professional gunsmith wants to take a look inside the bore of a rifle, he usually turns to tools costing $1500 or more. This is out of the reach of most shooters. When Lyman contacted us and asked us to take a look at their Borecam Digital Borescope, we jumped at the opportunity. Continue reading Lyman Borecam Borescope Review
Several months ago, JMS Tactical sent us one of their Remington 700 chassis to review. Dubbed the “JTAC-Thunder” this chassis offers a number of features that we have come to expect in a fully-adjustable precision rifle system along with some new tricks. Continue reading JMS Tactical “JTAC-Thunder” Remington 700 Chassis Review
Last year, I was contacted by RSS Defense Corp. RSS Defense is a small AR and AK manufacturer located north of Chicago. Before our conversation, I had never heard of this company. After a few exchanges, I agreed to review their flagship AR15, the RDMR7.
RDMR7 is an acronym for Rapid Deployment, Mission Ready, 7 days a week. This perfectly describes what the RDMR7 is designed to be. It is intended to be a law enforcement patrol rifle. Every part of the rifle supports this goal. Continue reading RSS Defense Corp RDMR7 Review
As a precision rifle shooter, I am a bit of a trigger snob. I was forced to qualify in the Marine Corps with a rack grade M16A2 with a horribly gritty trigger with loads of creep. Whenever I hear the term “USGI Trigger”, I always think back to those ugly triggers. This reaction caused me to put off looking at the ALG Defense Advanced Combat Trigger. The ALG ACT is essentially a USGI type trigger with a couple of added features. After using the ACT, I may have to re-evaluate my prejudice against USGI type triggers. Continue reading ALG Defense Advanced Combat Trigger (ACT)
I purchased the OR Cirque™ Pants before the Mammoth Sniper Challenge. My teammate and I were competing in the “Extreme Tough-Man Division”. We arrived a day early and chose to camp out. When we crossed the finish line, I had been living in the Cirque™ pants for four days.
We hiked with 50 pound packs, crawled under barbed wire, ran up obstacles, slid down earthen berms on my backside and a number of other tasks. I was sure that these pants would be trashed when we were done. They held up amazingly. Continue reading Outdoor Research Cirque™ Pants
We recently got a chance to look at a new product from SAIN Defense. Brian Sain, a LE Sniper/Instructor and one of the founders of American Snipers, got a chance to talk to us at the SHOT Show about hit new kit. The SAIN Defense Firearm Cleaning System is a compact, field portable solutions for those times when you need a rigid cleaning rod. Continue reading SAIN Defense Firearm Cleaning System Review
During the 2014 SHOT Show, we were wandering the floor and came across the Recover Tactical booth. What at first looked like an interesting set of grips, turned out to be a novel, inexpensive way to add a light rail to an slick 1911. The product has gone through some changes. Now we have finally taken the time to get our hands on the product and see how well it works. Continue reading Recover Tactical CC3H 1911 Grip and Rail System
I have worn a belt daily since Boot Camp. It just became a habit. It became even more necessary when I started carrying a firearm as part of my routine. Belts usually serve the sole purpose of holding up your pants or keeping your firearm where it belongs. A good belt can do both at the same time, but that is about where it’s usefulness ends. That is why we were excited when a package from Alpenlore Adventure Belts showed up at our door. Alpenlore Adventure Belts produce a novel belt that doubles as a survival kit. Continue reading Alpenlore EDC Adventure Belt Review
Rear bags come in an overwhelming variety of shapes and sizes. Some are simple. Some have a ton of features. It would be easy to crank out a quick review of something as simple as a shooting bag. However, to get a real feel for how a bag performs, takes time. I spend five months working with the new Short Action Precision “Run n’ Gun” bag. I really wanted to see if once the “new” wore off, I stuck with it or went back to one of my previous bags. After five months, it’s still the bag I reach for during most of my shooting sessions.
