TFB Review: Meprolight MPO-F Red Dot Sight

Meprolight has added new open emitter red dot sights to their catalog, including today’s subject, the Meprolight MPO-F. The MPO-F is a Full-size and full-featured red dot sight with the RMR footprint, battery door, two-button operation and three reticle options. I recently reviewed the smaller MPO-S with the RMSc footprint, but with the larger footprint of the MPO-F, also comes a larger objective lens for viewing targets. Let’s take a look.

POTD: The Swedish Automatkarbin 24 Full-Auto Suppressed

The new Swedish Automatkarbin 24 makes another appearance in TFB's   Photo Of The Day. Ak24 for short, except it's AR patterned and not an AK. Although I bet the Finnish Army wished it was an AK! Above you can see the Ak24 with a suppressed, fired in full auto. I almost lean forward as I write this, to control the recoil. Please tell me you can feel it too!

POTD: The US Navy Marksmanship Team

The   Photo Of The Day can be chosen for a variety of reasons. It may be because of its aesthetic qualities, its newsworthiness, its emotional impact, or its technical excellence. These ones were chosen due to the rather odd (but functional) shooting clothes and style required for these competitions. Above you see Navy Chief Machinist Mate (Nuclear) Robert Hughes, a member of the US Navy Marksmanship Team (USNMT) participating in the All Navy (East) rifle match at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, May. 10, 2024. The riflescope is from Athlon.

The Rimfire Report: CCI Quiet-22 40 gr Segmented Hollow Point

Hello and welcome back to another edition of The Rimfire Report! This ongoing series is all about the rimfire firearm world and its many different types of guns, gear, and ammo! Last week we talked about one of Federal Ammunition’s most popular hunting cartridges. The 38-grain copper plated hollow point is a fairly decent budget rimfire pest control round. When it came to my testing, I found it to have acceptable accuracy at 50 yards for small game applications, and it had a decent standard deviation in the velocity department of about 17 fps. This week we’re moving on to one of CCI’s more obscure 22LR loadings - Quiet-22 40-grain Segmented Hollow Point ammunition. Another round designed for small game hunting and pest control duty, CCI Quiet-22 takes the opposite approach to the 38-grain Federal CPHP and goes well below the subsonic threshold - but how does this approach translate to accuracy and consistency out of our B14R test platform? Let's find out in this next ammo test!

TFB Armorer’s Bench: Colt 1877 Disassembly

Welcome everyone to the  TFB Armorer’s Bench! As mentioned in the little blurb below, this series will focus on a lot of home armorer and gunsmith activities. I saw some interest in a Colt 1877 disassembly article. This is fun because it may come off as your average Colt 1873 (peacemaker) but the insides are completely different and this is to its detriment, unfortunately. Double action is great but the design leaves a lot to be desired in terms of simplicity. Would I take one apart if I did not have the experience that I have? No. Are there many resources for taking one apart? No, not much. Besides the interest that is why I am doing this. Hopefully, it will be of some help. Let’s dive right into this Colt 1877 disassembly article!

TFB Review: Cimarron Firearms 1875 Outlaw

This past winter I found myself rewatching many of the westerns that Netflix had on rotation. Movies including “High Plains Drifter” “3:10 to Yuma” and “The Power of the Dog” and these films really had me wanting a six-shooter of my own to play around with at the range some day. I reached out to Cimarron Firearms and asked if they would be willing to send me a review copy of their 1875 Outlaw in .357 and they were more than happy to send one my way.
