TFB Review: SIG CROSS PRS in 6.5 Creedmoor

Designed with precision in mind, SIG’s new CROSS PRS in 6.5 Creedmoor is packed with new features.  Using the existing CROSS chassis, the PRS features a prominent new 24-inch heavy contour barrel underneath a new ARCA-equipped handguard.  I was curious to see how this new longer-barreled variant was, and SIG was kind enough to send over a completely decked-out copy for me to review.

Newly Imported French FR F2 Sniper Rifles Available In The U.S.

A batch of fully functional French FR F2 sniper rifles has recently been imported into the United States by Navy Arms, and are available through EuroOptic.com, and Navy Arms’ affiliate, Old Western Scrounger. The less than traditional-looking French FR F2 rifles were all decommissioned by France and have seen some use, so the prices will vary if you check out Old Western Scrounger’s website, whereas EuroOptic’s lot has a fixed price. The FR F2 is the 7.62x51mm version of France’s FR F1 sniper rifle designed for the 7.5x54mm French cartridge, and the F2 features a thermal sleeve that was designed to reduce mirage for the shooter and heat signature from the enemy. Let’s take a look at the fresh importation of French FR F2 rifles.

POTD: The CZ600 Trail

Every now and then a firearm pops up that’s a little bit different. The new CZ600 Trail from CZ firearms is such one and it certainly deserves to be the subject of today’s Photo Of The Day. For some reason, it reminds me of the U.S. Survival AR-7. Even though more or less everything is different, they seem quite good to have once you leave civilization. Available in either .223 Rem or 7,62×39, the CZ600 Trail is a bit more potent than a rimfire.
