At SHOT Show I finally got to take a look at the Magnetospeed, a chronograph that measures the speed of a bullet by measuring the time it takes for it to pass through two magnetic fields. Conventional chronographs work by measuring the time it takes for a bullet to [Read More…]
Gun writer, photographer and Youtuber (FearandLoading Channel), Guy J Sagi sent us this photo of s .22 Umarex MP5. Guy did not realize he was photographing in the midst of poison ivy until it was pointed out by a colleague, fortunately for Guy he is not allergic. I on [Read More…]
If I had a dollar every time I got an email asking me how to take guns from/to the USA I would have been able to retire a long time ago. It is hard enough to understand your own Federal/State law, but when you travel internationally you need to understand the laws of [Read More…]
Brian, a photographer and graphic artist, sent us this nifty photo of his AK47 Yugo Zastava N-PAP. He is using a Midwest Industries optics mount with a Vortex Strikefire scope. Thanks Brian.
Gabor, who writes at KaliberInfo.hu, sent us this photo of the brand new Slovenian pistol, the Arex Rex Zero1. It looks like a pretty nifty pistol. He wrote .. Arex Rex Zero1 9 mm Luger (18+1) pistol. New Slovenian (NOT Slovakian!) pistol, with alumínium frame, DA/SA [Read More…]
“HKGuns” sent us these gorgeous photos of his Heckler & Koch HK MR556A1 Competition. The Competition models features a new 14″ handguard, a Magpul CTR stock and a very nifty-looking Operators Suppressor Systems (OSS) compensator. Thanks HKGuns! [Read More…]
Oleg Volk has written a excellent series of articles comparing three pistol-variants of full sized rifles, each chambered in a different caliber and compared ballistic performance and handling characteristics. I highly recommend reading the series. I originally [Read More…]
Mr Revolverguy, who blogs at Day At The Range, has big plans for his new Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan. The appearance after the addition of these grips were absolutely amazing. At this point there was only one last thing to do, turn this revolver into the most versatile [Read More…]
The AAC & H&R (both Remington-owned companies) collaborated a couple of years ago to develop an ultra-light suppressible hunting rifle chambered in .330 AAC BLK and developed the single shot AAC / H&R Handi-Rifle with plastic furniture and a short [Read More…]
I really like this creative photo sent to us by 300BLKSOBER. It shows the sun setting through his Aimpoint T1.
Daniel, aka. AKNorthPolar sent us a photo of his 22/45. He wrote … A Ruger 22/45 Lite with a modified top rail that carries a Primary Arms reflex red dot, MaddMacs compensator, and all the usual internal upgrades. Volquartsen, Tandemkross, and the like.
The AN-94 was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s to replace the AK-74M. Like all contenders for Russia’s next-generation assault rifle it has faded into obscurity. It features a novel delayed recoil mechanism called “blowback shifted pulse.”. [Read More…]
Gman send us a photo of his International Harvester M1 Garand, with some of the ammo that was shot later that day. The Garand sure is one handsome gun.
Joe sent us this photo of his AWESOME gun. He wrote … Hey TFB, here is my FULL AUTO SAR-48. As you can see I’ve done some heavy modification to it. I’m running a DSA 11″ barrel on their OSW front end, A Yankee Hill Flash hider and their 7.62 [Read More…]
Andrew sent us this nifty photo of the 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield pistol that is his off duty carry. He told us his ammunition of choice is 147 grain Ranger-T, Winchester’s 3rd generation penetrating hollow point (1st. gen was the infamous Black Talon).
@sweetmarias posted the above photo on Instagram. It shows a security guard in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, rocking a sweet Thompson submachine gun. The only African country to adopt the Tommy gun was Egypt and it the most likely source of the gun in the [Read More…]
I am excited to announce that TFB will be interviewing Mr. Alexey Krivoruchko, the CEO of Kalashnikov Concern. This interview was made possible by the excellent public relations team at Rostec, the massive Russian State Corporation that either fully or partly owns [Read More…]
Canadian Photographer Kelsow sent us this photo of his CZ 75 SP-O1. The really like this photo, it is dramatic and draws me in. The CZ 75 SP-01 is a all-steel pistol based on the CZ 75 P-01, but with a picatinny rail.
Mark sent us photos of his commercial DWM Luger manufactured in 1909, making it 105 years old.The Reichsbank notes are a nice touch! Alex’s previous TFBTV video is about his 1920 DWM Luger. It well worth watching.
James purchased a Ruger Vaquero for just $25 … a bargain if it had not been underwater for at least a week! He finished it up and apparently it functions “quite well”. He wrote … My Ruger Vaquero that sat underwater for a week or two. Bought [Read More…]
300BlackoutSober from Phoenix sent us this photo. Apparently it “shoots like a dream”. I say that if it shot half as good as it looks it would be a keeper. To my best recollection I have never shot one of these (although I shoot a lot of guns and have a [Read More…]
Chuck sent us this photo of his AR-15 pistol (or is it a SBR?) with a Spikes pirate-themed “Jolly Roger” lower receiver. It is chambered in .300 AAC BLK and has a KAK Slim Flash Can. Note the engraving around the fire selector. If you are not familiar with [Read More…]
TFB reader BenJamin converted a bolt-action Howa 1500 chambered in .300 Win Mag into a beautiful bullpup that in my mind resembles the rarer-than-unicorns Walther WA 2000, although it was the Keppeler & Fritz KS II Precision that inspired him. BenJamin wrote [Read More…]
