Springfield XDm 3.8 Compact

This has got to be the most confusing gun launch launch since I started blogging. A couple of readers emailed me about the launch of the XDm 3.8 Compact but I thought this was the XDm 3.8 launched last year. Why was I confused? Because Springfield’s marketing [Read More…]

Ruger P90TH (With Chrome Bling)

The Ruger P90TH is a relatively nice looking special edition Ruger P90. It features a frame with a grey anodized finish and shiny chromed (or shiny stainless?) hammer and safety. Instead of, in my humble opinion, the awful looking Ruger P-series grips it features Hogue [Read More…]

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…]

Browning 1911-22 .22 Pistol

Browning has introduced a .22 pistol patterned after the 1911. It is about 80% of the size of a regular 1911 (see photo below). It will be available in two sizes, a full-size and a compact. The price intrigues me. It is nearly twice the retail of the GSG 1911 and much [Read More…]

A member of the Vintage Semi-Automatic Sporting Rifles Forum posted photos of his replica Lebman 1907. Well it’s been darn-near 8 months since I thought of it and decided that I wanted one but it’s done. My replica of the Winchester 1907s prepared by Hyman [Read More…]

New Sig P290 Sub-Compact 9mm

Sig Sauer has unveiled their newest pistol: the Sig P290. It is significant (excuse the pun) because it is a whole new platform. The first P290 that will be available is chambered in 9mm Luger/Parabellum but I fully expect to see it chambered in other cartridges late [Read More…]
