SIG MCX VIRTUS 300 AAC Swappable Barrel Review

Thu, 06/07/2018 - 21:39

Over the last 9 months of testing, the SIG MCX VIRTUS has proven to be a very reliable and useful weapon. In its 5.56 configurations, we saw it run in all weather conditions over the winter, a 2000 rounds suppressed test and many other shenanigans. The most impressive part to me was that we had a multi-configurable rifle, that consistently shot ½ MOA groups. This week, we finally got the long awaited 300 AAC barrel.

The Guns of D-Day – June 6th, 1944

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 21:41

The primary weapon of the infantryman is the rifle. Yes, at this time there were also submachine guns, pistols, anti-armor weapons, and machine guns. But these weapons were all intended to support the rifleman as he took or held ground. Interestingly enough, most of the armies in the Second World War were using either the same rifle their fathers carried in the First World War or a variant thereof.

Springfield Armory XD Sub-Compact Unboxed at the Gun Counter

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 14:47

The controls on the XD Sub-Compact are easily accessible and intuitive. Its ambidextrous magazine release is large enough to make confident, quick mag changes.  There are 3 safeties: a blade safety on the trigger, a grip safety on the beavertail and an internal firing pin block to provide maximum confidence. The slide release is relatively flush with the frame, so it reduces snagging and yet provides a positive feel.

Finding Leather Holsters for Hand Cannons (My Springfield Armory 10mm 1911)

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 07:52

My holster came with a retention strap, though a full cover flap is also an option if you're really worried about protecting the pistol from the elements. For a backcountry gun, the extra security of the retentions strap is worth the slight penalty in speed. And if you need to get ready for the O.K. Corral, it is easy to move it out of the way.
