Some rifles regardless of features, price, or quality just never pan out or find a home in too many safes across the globe. We take a look at five long guns and try to figure out why a few of these never took off. These are not all necessarily bad rifles, but for one reason or another flopped and [Read More…]

Remember the Australian Leader Dynamics T2? It is okay if you don’t, as very few made it here to the USA, but thanks to people like Ian McCollum some are at least aware of it nowadays. The Leader was designed and produced by Charles St. George in New South Wales, [Read More…]
The JP LRP-07 Billet Beauty special edition tribute rifle retails for $4,649.00 and they are only making 25. As such, I realize most of the comments on this review will criticize the gaudiness of the rifle, the high MSRP, the low production number, etc. but there is [Read More…]
Strike Industries is a great outfit that really knows how to make use of all the machine tools at their disposal. They produce some truly spectacular pieces of gear for shooters of all types and I have yet to evaluate a piece I have not been thoroughly impressed with. [Read More…]
All over the news lately has been the ATF’s intent to ban commonly available AR15 ammunition known as M855, SS109, or “green tip” ammunition. They claim that is poses a threat to law enforcement officers, citing that it possesses unique armor piercing properties. To see if M855 [Read More…]
Some guns are for hunting, some guns are for defense, but some exist just to bring a smile to your face! Of course there is nothing wrong with buying a blaster just to make you happy. This video highlight five firearms we believe are better range toys that purpose built boomsticks. Do you agree with [Read More…]
The Steyr AUG is one of, if not the world’s most successful bullpup, albeit even today the AUG certainly looks quite strange to the uninitiated. While the bullpup configuration was by no means a new idea, it certainly went mainstream in the West with the AUG. But how does this Austrian [Read More…]
We here at TFB are big fans of Bond Arms. I first met Gordon Bond at a media event in Florida, and there he invited me to take a factory tour back home in Texas to see what his company is all about. What I saw was nothing short of amazing; Modern machining technology combined […] Read [Read More…]
The P08 Luger is one of the most iconic pistols ever designed, and one of the first overwhelmingly successful semi-automatic handguns to grace the Earth. It is a timeless design that embodies European craftsmanship and unmatched aesthetics. All of its parts come together to create an incredible and [Read More…]
The Walther MPL is a German made 9mm submachinegun, but why then is it so obscure? And most importantly, how does it shoot? The Walther MP SMGs do not appear much in media, and it is rare to see one out in the wild. This makes one wonder; does the gun suffer from a deficiency […] Read [Read More…]
My last trigger pull test of modern sporting rifles and assault rifles (the test included some assault rifles of the proper definition) was very eye opening and seemingly well received. I really wanted to expand upon this by delving into more categories; C&R long [Read More…]
My friend Adolfo moved to England a while back, leaving all of his guns here to waste away. Well, he decided to come back and visit and he volunteered to sacrifice a Century Polish Tantal in the name of scientific testing. I converted the gun to full-auto, and that was [Read More…]

I once called the Mauser 98 the perfect rifle, and I was very happy to hear the news that the M 98 magnum would be coming to the US as a non special order gun Sporting rifles represent an older Mauser tradition, though always a small part of the company’s output [Read More…]

If there ever was a gun that you could use as the poster-child of being aesthetically odd, the P90 and its semi auto counterpart, the PS90 certainly would be very strong candidates. The bullpup design of FN Herstal’s P90 make it look like a science fiction [Read More…]
**Disclaimer: The video is long, but worth a watch. This is an in-depth torture test** Bond Arms has made quite a name for themselves over the years by building quality products that will ensure years of shooting pleasure for all of their customers. A Bond Arms gun has [Read More…]
Did you know that it is legal to own a grenade launcher? Yeah, that is pretty awesome. By the letter of the law you can also possess live HE grenades, but acquiring them is incredibly difficult. However a smattering of other rounds are available if you want to [Read More…]
I love France. My first venture to the country in 2008 allowed me to witness the unparalleled beauty of both the urban centers and the countryside, and despite rumors of anti-American sentiment I was always treated with respect despite my very weak grasp on the French [Read More…]

I am a huge fan of Czech small arms. The boys over in the Czech Republic have a handle on churning out very reasonably priced and high quality armaments that have saturated the US market place, and I think that is awesome!
The IWI Tavor has taken the US market by storm ever since its debut a few years back, and Tavor shooters are always on the lookout for manufacturers introducing new gear and accessories for the rifle. American Built Arms out of Pennsylvania has just released a nifty [Read More…]
AR or AK? That argument has been beaten to death over decades and past attempts to convert AR15s to 7.62×39 have resulted in magazine issues or bolt failures due to the milling of the bolt face. People have tried to bring to market AR lowers that accept AK mags in [Read More…]
Factory grips are usually one of the first parts to go when a consumer decides to customize their AR15 type rifle, and Strike Industries is now bringing to the table a nice offering similar to the dominant MagPul MOE grip called the “AR Enhanced Pistol [Read More…]
