Gas Ports Work

I always wondered if those gas ports on CZ rifles work. They do.

This morning I fired a Winchester T22 in my Model 2 that must been at least double charged. There was a big explosion and smoke...

Let's get off SUVs and back to guns.

It is true that European shooters tend to be wealthier than the average American and that gun ownership is numbered.

But what do we mean by a "high quality"...

Ever noticed how overbuilt the Brno 1s are? The trigger guards are of heavier steel, the magazine release is thicker than the later Model 2s. So are the triggers. The locking lugs are beefier than...

I think I know why the last round doesn't eject. When the magazine is loaded the top round exerts upward pressure on the extracted case and and holds it firmly against the extractor. The extractor...

My CZ 452 Super Exclusive often fails to eject the last round. I have a dozen magazines and it is a problem with all twelve so I don't think it is a magazine problem.

It might be a dangerous thing to say but when you show people that beautiful Browning SA you can say "Now THIS is not a Ruger 10/22".

Any mount attached by screws to a drilled and tapped receiver can come loose with bad results. With a grooved receiver you can always check the tightness of your mount as long as you have a nickel.

The extractor and extractor spring might weaken if you single load your rifle. I always fire ammunition from the magazine since that causes the cartridges to feed up behind the extractor.
