Weatherby SA-08 Entre Rios

The Weatherby SA-08 Entre Rios is a 28 gauge version of the SA-08 autoloader shotgun. The 28 gauge cartridge is popular in part because it allows the action to be scaled down, resulting in a lighter gun. Weatherby has scaled the SA-08 down to a weight of 5.25 lbs. The [Read More…]

S.L.Variant’s speed loaders are now being sold in the US. The speed loader has individual springs for each round, which in theory are better than old big spring. The loader comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate different revolvers.

The Gun Comb

350 Taiwan dollars (about USD $11.50) will buy you this ridiculous comb. Guns are cool. Things that are shaped liked guns are not. [ Many thanks to Alex for emailing me the link. ]

Axe Guns

The below gun is a pretty cool looking modern recreation of an axe gun. The short gun barrel and short axe shaft make both weapons a lot less effective than they could be. I suspect that the original axe guns were made more for decoration than for war. The armory at [Read More…]
