Saw this today at the FNH 3Gun Championships. A staffer/competitor modified his Beretta A400 Unico by adding a large button to his bolt release. Most shooters would buy an aftermarket part and have a gunsmith install it. He told me this is cheaper and easier. He drilled [Read More…]

Royal Nonesuch was asked to try shooting CO2 cartridges out of his home made shotgun. The results were rather interesting.
Recently, TFB published a review of the DTAC Mongoose recoil-absorbing stock. I was impressed with the idea, but not impressed by the execution. There are three ways companies deal with a negative reviews: Whine, throw a tantrum, and burn bridges (uncommon, but very [Read More…]
Bennett sent in these photos of his custom Saiga 12 shotgun. It still needs a bolt polished or the ports drilled so It will run light loads But I’m pretty happy with how it came out. A Saiga-12 in this type of configuration has been on my wish list for a long [Read More…]
