It was a couple of months ago I received the OSS Suppressors RAD 22 for review. Through that time we managed to get between 500 and 600 rounds of .22 LR and .22 WMR. OSS Suppressors are known for their flow through technology, but the RAD 22 is a little different. While it uses […]
I recently submitted an article to Athlon Outdoors covering a bunch of Ruger 10/22 and Charger builds, mainly use PMACA Mfg chassis systems. In all I ended up with six complete builds, ranging from a 4.5″ Charger build all the way to a 18″ bull barrel 10/22 build. See the group shot below. The great […]
The next critical dimension is the cartridge OAL itself. Too short or too long and you’ll have problems. The issues that so many people ascribed to the 1911’s failure to feed hollowpoints came from the old Speer 200 grain JHP “Flying ashtray” in the 80s…but it wasn’t the size of the cavity that caused the […]
During the process of writing a recent Athlon Outdoors article about 10/22’s and building your own I acquired a gaggle of parts. I built 6 great setups as seen in the group shot above. I liked them but I always had a nagging feeling that I was getting the optimal ergonomics when using a high […]
I’ve been on a bag quest, it started out with getting commissioned for an article dealing with CCW friendly backpacks for Athlon Outdoors. I’m currently working on another article for Athlon covering the latest greatest range bags. During the research for these two articles I inevitably end up at 5.11 Tactical. During SHOT Show 2019 […]
N.G. Wendt The movie opens with some psychedelic renderings of the four things that have sucked John Wick back into his old life – gold coins, guns, ammo…and a Marker. A quick recap from the last film: John Wick is a former-former assassin. He used to be a hardcore assassin but quit after he met […]
Liberty Suppressors has reintroduced the multi-caliber Infinity X Lightweight with some upgrades, such as the titanium monocore baffle system and the same mounting system as the Mystic X and the Centurion. Here you will find the list of the calibers the Infinity X and Mystic X are rated for. During the review, I used the […]
It was a couple of months ago I received the Riton RT-S MOD 3 Gen 2 1-4×24/IR and mounted it onto the obnoxious Barnes Precision Machine 7.5″ pistol to begin testing. After getting it zeroed and shooting some 100 yard groups with the pistol/scope combo here is what we learned. At one power […]
The 1911 style pistol with internal extractor, as originally designed. The extractor’s role in feeding is often misunderstood and underestimated. Most important is the deflection. That is, the amount of the wall behind the claw that protrudes beyond the guide block into the breech area…and this is where I’ve found problems in pistols produced in […]
In order to effect a better understanding of the dimensions and conditions critical to reliable feeding in the 1911 pistol, I thought this might be a good idea to go into more detail than the average magazine article. The first critical spec is feed and barrel ramp angles. The feed ramp is ideally 31-31.5 degrees […]
