Margolin MT

Margolin MT

Here is the Russian Margolin MT .22LR. If you look at the sights on this weapon they might look funny for a pistol but this is a specialist target pistol and so the back sights adjust for windage and the front is to adjust for elevation. (the front is a muzzlebreak) This was designed by the blind Russian designer Mikhail Margolin.

Browning invector bps special steel

Browning invector bps special steel

I have been spending a lot of time giving all the love to the rifles and pistols lately that the shot gun has felt a little left out. My first shotgun was a Browning invector bps 20 gauge and it is a BEAUTIFUL gun! As you can see the ejector port isn’t on the right side nor is it on the left which makes this a very nice gun for me when I got out to the range with my Father who is left handed because it ejects on the bottom as well as loads. I have shot a good number of shot guns over the years and I have even run a few Shotgun ranges and of all the guns I have come across and had the opportunity to shoot this had been one of the smoothest pump actions I had handled. Gauge: 20 Magazine Capacity: 4 Barrel Length: … What you’re missing….

.50 GI conversion for the Glock 21

.50 GI conversion for the Glock 21

I sat down yesterday to write about the .40 vs. 10mm round but I seem to have found myself in a writers block when it came to that so I flipped through my list of what I wanted to talk on this blog and I saw that I had dated the .50 GI conversion for my Glock with todays date so I guess I should just listen to myself and white this post. Guncrafter Industries designed a slide and barrel for the Glock 20/21 to fire their .50 GI round. This round is just slightly larger than the .45 ACP but is not as much brass and powder behind the round as the .500 S&W or the .50 AE                                (Source: Wikipedia)            Left to right .50GI – .50AE – .500 S&W It is a smaller round but it gives the Glock family a cousin in the .50s. Just something … What you’re missing….
