Sound Amplification Earmuff

The .44 Special goes all way back to the closing days of 1907 with Smith & Wesson bringing out their first large-framed, swing out-cylindered, double-action revolver. It bore several names, New Century, Model of 1908, 1st Model Hand Ejector, however it is more fondly known as the Triple-Lock. Smith & Wesson' s first .44 Special was built to showcase the talents of the Smith & Wesson engineers and gunsmiths. The name Triple-Lock came from the fact the cylinder locked in three places,...

The N Model

purled warmly one night in my ornate brass Cbed (which was considered junk then, but now would sell to an antique dealer for enough to pay for an engraved .357), I opened a fresh copy of LIFE magazine and found myself glaring jealously at a full-page photo. There was smiling Gary Cooper, sitting in a Rocky Mountain hunting camp, his hat tilted back on his head, his handsome features highlighted by a comfortable campfire. The photo story was about Coop's hunt for mountain lions and what a great...

Bob Leskovec Grips

Bob Leskovec of Precision Pro Grips is an artist of the highest order. I grew up reading Elmer Keith and always admired his ivory-stocked single actions and even more so after I got to see, feel, touch and experience them in person. Leskovec was commissioned to carry out a pair of Keith's favorite ivory grips with a carved steerhead in ivory polymer for heavy-duty use. These now reside on a Colt New Frontier .45, and the same pattern was then carried out for a pair of 4-5 8 Ruger .45 Vaqueros...

Many a hunting rifle gets sighted in resting on a rolled-up jacket over a pickup's hood. It works after a fashion though the truck tends to rock in the wind or when you lean against it. Remember the bore is an inch or two below the scope. Just because you don't see an obstruction through the scope doesn't mean the bore is clear. I recall once riding around with friends in an old Jeep. It had a long rusted scar in the hood, a relic of an occasion when some excited hunter jumped out and took a...

Ar Goes Rimfire

Colt's exciting, new, M4 M16 are dedicated to the .22 Long Rifle. Since its inception, the M16 AR-15 family of Colts has challenged arms designers to develop reliable .22 Long Rifle conversion units to take advantage of the rifle's .22-caliber bore and the abundance of inexpensive .22 rimfire ammunition. Colt itself marketed one of the earliest, years ago, followed by John Foote of the simple blowback units that replaced the Maremont Corp., who designed the unit 5.56 bolt assembly. Max...

Barnes Amazing Bullets

Beginning more than 20 years ago, I was lucky enough to hunt nilgai for several years. Nilgai are antelope from India, imported to Texas by the King Ranch. The bulls are between a cow and a bull elk in size. They have the reputation of being extremely tenacious and difficult to put down. Having seen many of them hit on hunts, I can attest to the truth of this reputation. I used my standard hunting bullets in a .30-06 the first year and quickly became aware I needed to make changes. I designed...

Magazine well chutes have been getting bigger and bigger. Where is the point of diminishing returns When I was a young puppy of a shooter, the butts of semiautomatic pistols were machined off square to the magazine well. Not until the 1950s, when Jeff Cooper and his circle of now-fabled master handgunners introduced highspeed combat competition shooting, did folks figure out breaking the edges of the entry point would allow the magazines to slip in faster. The beveled magazine well became de...

Even so I was able to obtain one with reasonable bona fides. Well, sort of said not due to its authenticity but whether it was...
