Review: Mossberg MC1sc

Thursday, January 9th 2020 10:20 AM

When I was invited to go to Gunsite Academy for a new product launch from Mossberg late last year, my brain immediately sprang into action trying to figure out what the firearm might be. Fresh off the success of the Shockwave and 590M models, I had it in the back of my head that we might be seeing a semi-automatic version of the Shockwave, or perhaps a magazine-fed version of the 930 to complement the 590M.

Springer Precision XDM 10mm- Something wicked this way comes

Wednesday, December 4th 2019 03:54 PM

I have been pretty vocal about my support for the new XDM 10mm, it is in many ways the perfect 10. High capacity, lightweight, easy to shoot, and very importantly—affordable. It fits the hand like a natural extension, something we haven’t had in a double 10 under $2000 any time recently. I like it very much for bear country, self-defense, nightstand gun, and I would venture a duty gun. But I see something else in this particular 10mm that others may not have thought of. A USPSA Limited Class gun.

HELLCAT vs. Racegun

Wednesday, November 27th 2019 10:19 AM

Without a doubt, bigger, heavier pistols with more sight radius, longer slides, and more magazine capacity are easier to shoot. The mass of bigger, heavier pistols soaks up recoil and the bigger grip area spreads it across more surface area of your hand. We all know that when we carry our small concealed carry gun that we’re giving up a certain amount of shootability for the lighter weight, less bulk and greater ability to comfortably carry concealed. The question is, how much are we giving up with some of the better micro high cap pistols today?

CZ USA’s reputation for high quality, accurate rimfire rifles is well earned. The CZ 452’s were popular, and the CZ 455’s have become commonplace among serious shooters. I got my hands on the new 457 Scout rifle, the “youth” model of the new 457 lineup. I’ve been using it quite a bit and I’m impressed. Its approachable price tag belies the quality of its craftsmanship and its inherent accuracy.
