  • Ergo Delta Grip Now Available for LCR and LCRx Wheel Guns

    For some of us, part of the joy of gun ownership lies in the grips. Whether you choose grips that are a rich, beautiful wood grain or those that are designed to give you the most comfortable hold possible, selecting the right grip for the gun, and yourself, can be a bit of a process. Ideally you will find something that both looks good and fits your hand comfortably at the same time. Additionally, it is important for a grip to allow proper placement of your hand and fingers to give you...
  • The Red Label Is Back

    Designed by Bill Ruger and company in the 1970s to compete with foreign shotguns, the Ruger Red Label has long been a staple of American made scatterguns. Now, after a two-year hiatus, it has returned with some improvements including a better price. The old Red Label When Browning introduced their Superposed shotgun in 1928, the American public started to fall in love with the concept of a well-made, good shooting, and utterly reliable stacked barrel shotgun. Unlike side-by-side double...
  • Mini-14s clocking in on terror threats around the world

    This week saw a tragic incident in San Bernardino, California in which two individuals, currently under investigation by the FBI as potential terrorists, left 14 dead at a holiday party for county employees. Within minutes, a huge law enforcement presence mustered and just two hours later, the suspects, armed with AR-15s and pipe bombs were engaged in a fierce firefight with peace officers that halted the continuing threat. Moreover, it was hard not to notice all the Ruger Mini-14s in use....
  • The classic Ruger Model 44 Carbine: A 10/22 times two!

    Now out of production for going on thirty years, the Model 44 carbine, named easily enough because of its chambering in the beastly .44-magnum caliber, was a vintage rifle from another time that we wish Ruger would revisit. (Photo by AR15.com) Background In 1964, Bill Ruger came out with his instant classic 10/22 rifle. Now in its 50th year of solid and continuous production, that innovative .22LR rimfire carbine actually was a rehash of a gun that had come out three years before, the...
  • The Ruger LCRx now comes in 3-inch!

    It wasn't too long ago that Ruger released the double-action LCR revolver to rave reviews. Then came the LCRx which gave the masses what they wanted-- an exposed hammer. Then came the 5-round, 9mm Luger version that utilized moon clips, and still boasted the standard 1.875 inch barrel in length. This short barrel, while convenient for concealed carry, often doesnt do much for accuracy. Well, that has changed. Now comes the LCRx with the great compromise that is a 3-inch barrel. Designed...
  1. Super slo-mo roller-locks in action like you've never seen before (VIDEOS)

    Our buddy, Matt from OHUB LABS recently met up with Joe from Dakota Tactical, makers of some of the finest HK-pattern roller-locks in the United States, for a day full of shooting some select-fire burp guns. Joe brought along a classic MP5-pattern D54 in 9mm, its 10mm big brother, a .45ACP HK UMP, and, for those looking for something larger than pistol caliber, there is the D300-- a super cool gun based on the legendary HK53. In all of the below, Joe is confronted with hostile watermelons...
  2. Extensively engraved one-of-a-kind Berden SP101 (15 PHOTOS)

    Sure, you have seen regular Ruger SP-101s, and let us face it, they are great guns, but have you seen one that has been custom hand engraved and embellished by a master jeweler with 25 years of experience? If you feel like you have seen this revolver before, it's been shown (a little) on Ruger's Pintrest & Instagram accounts recently, but you odds are you haven't seen it in this detail. This otherwise standard Ruger SP101 5-shot .357 Magnum snubby, with its 2.25" barrel weighs in at...
  3. Ruger brings out the LCR in 327, intros program to trade-in LC9

    America's favorite gun maker this week announced two new programs that include reaching back into the creative closet and bringing forth a new caliber offering that has some six-shooter aficionados rejoicing while offering an upgrade for LC9 owners. - The Newest LCR Why 327? Introduced through a partnership by Sturm, Ruger and Federal Cartridge in 2007, the .327 Federal Magnum uses the rimmed, straight-walled .32 H&R case with a very lightweight .312 caliber bullet (typically 100 grains)...
  4. The plinker went to war: The IDF's Ruger 10/22

    Ever since their beginnings in 1948, the Israeli Defense Force has had to think outside the box to come up with weapon's systems, therefore it shouldn't surprise you that for the past 20 years the Israelis have used a (much-modified) 10/22 for use in both special operations and in security operations. (A gently modded 10/22 with IDF forces in 2000) The background Going back to 1987, the IDF purchased a quantity of Ruger 10/22s for use by security forces in the Palestinian Intifada, a...
  5. LaserLyte intros common trigger guard sight for LCP, LC9, and LC380

    When the LCP first came out, LaserLyte dropped a side-mounted targeting sight that was kinda hit and miss for some users. It seems they have gone next level with a custom-fitting red Trigger Guard Lasers (TGL) for Ruger's LC-family of pistols. Why a laser A visible laser system, in other words, one that can be seen, has many advantages. These include the basic fact that holding the pistol with a properly aligned and installed laser, is aiming. Then the laser is there in real-time to adjust...
  6. Magpul brings in the M-Lok capable X-22 stock for Ruger plinkers

    With the motto of "Your fun gun just got serious," black-rifle super accessory maker Magpul just dropped a pretty sweet 10/22 chassis with just about every feature you could want. The 10/22 has been around for a half-century and has been sold in numbers that other gun makers can only dream of-- making it a staple in the aftermarket stock business. We can think of at least four manufacturers right off the top making 10/22 replacement stock options. This means Wyoming-based Magpul (they moved...
  7. Ruger intros polymer framed 10/22 Charger series

    The Charger had a brief but intensely loved six-year run then went on hiatus for a couple years until brought back recently. And now Ruger has both take down and standard versions in rugged polymer. Charger background In 2007, Ruger came out with a legal short-barreled rifle that anyone could own without a tax stamp. They took their tried and true 10/22 rifle design, and then produced it in a pistol-only receiver without a buttstock. This avoided the dreaded 'Short Barreled Rifle' label...
  8. The Tactical Reload: Worth learning or not?

    Let's visit that bane of competition shooters, law enforcement qualification courses, and 'operator' training schools. That's right, the tactical reload. What is it? To put it country simple, a tactical reload is removing a magazine from your firearm (rifle or pistol) that you have fired some rounds from (but not all) and replacing it with a full magazine. You then keep the partially loaded magazine as a spare. This is different from an emergency reload where you are dropping an empty...
  9. Update: My duracoated LCP, three years later

    In the summer of 2012, I picked up my first Ruger LCP (I have three now, the first step is admitting you have a problem) and, afraid of the prospects for rust due to how I carry, got it coated. Now on the three-year anniversary, I have an update. The problem So I carry a back-up gun from time to time in my line of work. Occasionally in street clothes as a normal CCW practitioner, I also sometimes cannot carry a full-sized handgun comfortably without printing, especially in summer. This...
  10. The forgotten but still useful speed loader

    Many wheelgun owners have heard of them but never used them, as they are a throwback to yesteryear. We are talking about the humble but very effective speed loader, and once you figure it out, you'll fall in love. Speed loader 101 The first revolver speed loader patented was that of William H Bell in 1879. Bell's device was a simple metal disk with a rotating locking mechanism that held six revolver rounds. When used with a top-break revolver of the time, such as the Smith and Wesson Lemon...
  11. The 'carry Colt': Ruger's brief flirtation with the 4 inch Redhawk .45LC

    A decade ago, Sturm, Ruger put its .45 Long Colt chambering of their vaunted Redhawk double action revolver on hiatus and only this year brought it back-- well that is true, except for a brief run of standard service sized wheel guns. Redhawk background Introduced in 1979, the Redhawk built on Bill Ruger's proven Security Six and Single Six, popular military and police style revolvers with standard 4-inch barrels chambered in .38/.357, but supersized them to come in .41 and above. These...
  12. Ruger American Rimfire Rifle picks up a factory wood stock option

    Ruger recently introduced their American rifle series of composite stocked hunting rifles to offer an affordable alternative to their M77 series bolt-action guns. Well it seems that they have now upped the ante and brought out a version of this very gun with a bit more traditional stock. The basic concept The American Rimfire is dead center line between the rimfire versions of the M77, which are accurate tack drivers that are also at home when hunting for small game, and the semi automatic...
  13. The Ruger Woodside, an elegant shotgun for a simpler time

    Bill Ruger decided to bring back an over-and-under double-barreled shotgun to the U.S. in the 1970s and his design, the Red Label was popular leading to an even spiffier Gold Label spin off. As a brief split from this family tree of Ruger trap guns came the beautiful and short-lived Woodside. Origins When Browning introduced their Superposed shotgun in 1928, the American public started to fall in love with the concept of a well-made, good shooting, and utterly reliable stacked barrel...
  14. Ruger unveils new Precision Rifle capable of 1,000 yard + shots

    Strum, Ruger has gone the extra mile so to speak and coughed up an entire new line of bolt-action precision long range-rifles in 308 Win. 6.5 Creedmoor, and .243 Win. Past Ruger offerings Although Ruger started off as a company that specialized in handguns, they entered the rifle game in with their 10/22 rimfire semi-auto in 1964, followed by the bolt-action M77 in 1968 and brought in the semi-auto centerfire classic Mini-14 in 1973. However, the 10/22, in its earliest versions are plinkers...
  15. Ruger debuts takedown SR556 model rifle

    Takedown rifles have been around since the 19th century and have proven ideal for sportsmen in the field and for those with a dearth of storage space. With that in mind, Ruger has taken this concept and worked it into their modern sporting rifle to produce an AR-15 clone with a twist. Why a take down? The takedown model, as the name implies, separates into two halves. The first half with the stock, action and trigger group. The second half with the barrel and forearm. This enables the...
