Remington M1a Rifle Match With Scope

David Rooney's Tactical Rifle Delivers. Custom rifles come in many forms, with one of the most intriguing being the super-accurate tactical rifle. The rifle featured here is a .308 Win from a company called, appropriately, Tactical Rifles. The man behind the name is a perfectionist named David Rooney. The modern tactical rifle for police and military duty is a very special rifle indeed. Certainly it is accurate (that is basic) but beyond that it must be absolutely reliable, consistent, easy to...

The futuristic Rolling Thunder model sports a barrel stabilizer with Picatinny rib. shotgun after the wear-and-tear of Vietnam are interesting. To meet the stringent specifications, a pump-action shotgun had to fire 3,000 consecutive rounds with no more than two malfunctions and with the development of no unserviceable parts. Plus, it had to continue to function under the most extreme environmental conditions. The Mossberg Models 500 and 590 were the only shotguns to meet or exceed the...

The SIG P250 pistol hit Europe in 2004 and the USA a few years later. Its big claim to fame is it takes modular design to a new level. The fire control mechanism hangs together as a receiver, serial numbered as such and treated as such by both SIG SAUER and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Steve Denney demonstrates controllability of P250 in rapid fire with .45 hardball. Arrows show three spent casings in mid-air, but the muzzle is still on target. The grip configuration...

Hashmark Hash

In Part I, we looked at some of the more popular reticle hashmark designs available. There are others and more on the way every year. Choosing the one suiting your needs best and making use of it effectively is the subject this time. Snipers and competitors use target turrets allowing to dial for holdover and, when time allows, this is the preferred method. When there is a rich field of fire and little time, they often use hashmarks for holdover. Hunters don't particularly like tall target...

The Mumbai Model

Glock Exploded View

Only a few months after it happened in November 2008, the Mumbai Massacre is all but forgotten at least in America. Typically, it was only a momentary flare for our media, which mainly concerned itself with high-drama close-ups of tear-stained faces and de rigueur video bites of distant smoking buildings and frightened, huddled figures. There were brief interviews with English-speaking survivors featuring such penetrating questions as, how did you feel and weren't you terrified As usual, the...

The Learning Never Stops

Browning Exploded View

Books and learning have been tremendously important to me since I was first inspired by my grade school teachers. In the days before television, and certainly long before all the Internet information and communication we have today, I searched old bookstores and newsstands for information not found in our school library. In the early 1950s, it cost 100 to ride the bus to town and another 100 for the movies. After the movies I would visit those two newsstands and newly published firearms books...

In The Eye Of This Beholder

Mike Duke Venturino Photos Yvonne Venturino A word bandied about and indeed overused in reference to firearms is classic. There are classic-style rifle stocks, retro-classic revolvers, classic cartridges and on and on. Occasionally a gun'riter will call some firearm or the other a true classic. My tattered, old Webster's desk dictionary has several definitions for the word classic. Some of them pertain to ancient Greek and Roman authors. I don't think that concerns us here. The definition...

Plastic-tipped bullets aren't really all that new and I recall shooting such bullets more than 40 years ago. They were loaded by C-I-L Canadian Industries, Ltd. and were called Sabretips. I used the Sabretips in a .303 British Lee Enfield and a Winchester 94 .30-30. They shot all right, at least as good as any other loads. Since both rifles were equipped with open iron sights I was more limited by sighting ability than by ammunition. In the early 1970s, C-I-L marketed bullets for reloaders. I...

Talley Flat Rear

The flat-shooting .204 Ruger gets a unique platform. Things looked good almost literally from the moment the new Remington 700 VTR came out of its factory box. The only modification made to the rifle was my adjusting the latest version of the 700's trigger against the standard Remington boiler-plate warnings down to a very crisp two pounds, an easy job. After mounting a new Swarovski 2-12X Z6 scope in Talley steel rings, the reticle turned out to be almost centered on the collimator's grid....

The American Gold Trigger

American Trigger For Power

When the first AR was forced upon me, I was disappointed with the trigger among other things. It was a rainy day in 1968 and we were at war. Some years after returning, I decided I ought to acquire one of my own for old times sake. I did, and the trigger was still miserable. In recent years, however, many third party triggers have emerged putting that problem to rest. One of them, and maybe the best of them, depending on your use, is the new American Gold Trigger. I own several ARs now and...

Hunters use different twists and bullets than target shooters. One of the biggest reasons for the present popularity of the AR-15 is superb accuracy, and not just the accuracy of dedicated target or varmint rifles, but just about every rifle of decent quality. I am mostly a hunter, of everything from varmints to big game, and passed over AR-15s for a long time because most just didn't have the accuracy for my kinds of hunting. Those that did were just too clunky, due to their heavy barrels....
