  • Buying Unclaimed Guns Seized by the Transportation Safety Administration

    In a recent article, we discussed the Transportation Safety Administration and what they require of those who intend to take guns on airplanes.

Those of us who abide by these laws and take responsibility for our firearms during travel (and at all other times) should have no problem taking trips that go off without a hitch. Unfortunately not everyone has the same mindset and some people prefer to wing it instead of...
  • Radical Firearms to debut integral 10/22 suppressor system

    As a part of an ever-expanding line that includes uppers, barrels and suppressors, Stafford, Texas's Radical Firearms is working on a commercial off the shelf integral suppressed barrel for the Ruger 10/22 platform.

  • The Ruger Take Down

    The Ruger 10/22 is one of the most popular rimfire rifles in the world.

  • Saddam Hussein and his 40K Ruger

    If you are a fan of .22 rifles, there is no doubt the Ruger 10/22 is a good one to have.

Well teams of engineers have been working on this through the night and have come up with a bucket of solutions. As you are no doubt aware, the 10/22 magazine fits wholly inside with the gun which allows the floorplate to feel flush...
