AR-15 Lessons Learned, Part 1

I was initially going to title this “building the perfect AR,” as over the past few years I’ve spent doing just that, in my mind at least. Spending time on various forums devoted to ARs, reading through threads where people write pieces longer than this article on the merits of a $15 part, it’s easy to catch black rifle disease and start to fall into the trap of achieving perfection. After actually shooting my rifle as it has transformed though, the more I am starting to...

Are BUIS (Back Up Iron Sights) Necessary?

The obvious answer is it depends on what your needs are, but with how rugged and light optics are getting these days I’m beginning to think it’s time to move away from irons on hard use rifles. If you are using an Aimpoint or ACOG in a high quality mount it would be more practical to use the weight to carry a spare bolt and extractor, as the chances of those failing are equal if not higher, and more catastrophic.

Let’s suppose you are running an ACOG, or another rugged...

KKM Match Barrel Review (Video)


I picked up a KKM 10mm to .40 conversion barrel a few months back to save a little money and give me an extra caliber option (which there are many for the G20, .22lr, .40, 9×25 Dillon, .40 Super, list goes on, another great reason to get a G20). There are a lot of Glock barrel manufacturers (Lone Wolf, Bar-Sto, Storm Lake are some of the more popular options), all...

How To: Mod a Kriss Magazine Extension for Glock 20 (Video)

Pretty simple project, and a fun way to blow through expensive 10mm ammo even faster. I got the original instructions from this post. Though that guy says he fit 33 rounds, the most I can manage with the Glock factory speed loader is 32, though there seems to be room left in the mag. I think cutting down the spring could fit a few extra rounds but I don’t want...

5.7×28: The Undeniable Truth

There’s no denying the 5.7×28 is cool. In fact it is so cool it has even gained magical properties, penetrating armor better than 5.56×45 and causing larger wound channels while weighing half what a 9mm does. It’s all been proven too by infallible ballistics gel tests that somebody’s uncle who used to know someone who worked at FN Herstal once saw. All this has...
