Top Ten Pistols Pt.1 of 2

Top Ten Pistols Pt.1 of 2

1. Glock 21
Glock-21

The Glock 21 is the top of our list because of reliably and its handling. 

PRO:  Strong, reliable, accurate, has a 13+1 round capacity, easy to take apart and clean.

CON: The 21 is a full size so someone with smaller hands might not have a good grip. It’s not the Ninja Glock. 

2. Browning M1911
52430_465927636024_138343036024_5686517_6754032_o

The Browning 1911 has been around and proven itself time and time again. This is one of the most design copied guns on the market.  We also did a comparison between the 1911 and the Glock 21 here

PRO: uses a readily available ammo (.45 ACP), durable, time proven and reliable.

CON: 7+1 rounds, more work to disassemble.

3. FN Five-seveN
141928

This weapon is chambered in the 5.7mm round and can hold 20+1 rounds. We post this third because of the 5.7 which the FN P90 is also chambered in letting the shooter carry one caliber for 2 weapons.

PRO: Relatively light weight, 20 round mag and accurate and low recoil.

CON: This 5.7mm is not a common round making the ammo to fire this gun more costly and harder to find. the cost of the gun is relatively high.

4. Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
We couldn’t talk favorites without talking about the Desert Eagle. The Mark XIX can be chambered in .357MAG, .44 MAG and the .50 AE.

PRO: Accurate, good range for a pistol (200 meters)

CON: Ammo is costly and the weapon is larger making the weapon heavier, heavy recoil

5. NINJA GLOCK 
norm

It is very clear why the NINJA GLOCK is on our list. it can do anything. but for those who have not used or seen the NINJA GLOCK here are the PROS to the weapon.

PRO: Compact while still able to carry up to 1000 rounds per magazine, comes with spare ninja gear, the range is about 7 miles using the scope.

CONS: makes every other gun worthless. It embarrasses all other guns.

To view this remarkable weapon  in action see the video here.

This week will be for Top Ten favorites of the Gears of Guns crew. It will be broken up into 4 categories: Rifles, Pistols, Bullet calibers and “other”.

if you have a gun you think we didn’t consider please feel free to share it with us.

AR-Platform
ar15

The AR-15 is at the top of our list because it is for lack of better wording the ”Barbie” for men. This weapon system is highly customizable to fit the users wants and needs. 

PRO:  The weapon system can be changed to fit the shooter, everything from the caliber to the barrel length, to trigger group, letting the shooter find the perfect combination to fit them.

CON:  Possible malfunctions due to semi-auto action gas system causing them to break. Most of the cons we have for this weapon stems from size of caliber or internal firing mechanisms from different manufacturers.

Remington 700
Rem-700-BDL

The Remington Model 700 is number 2 on our list because of it reliability. The weapon has been used by both hunters and snipers. The weapon has been battle proven for years as the M24 Sniper rifle and is an all around a good rifle.

PRO: Multiple calibers and styles to fit the gun to the shooter, the weapon has high accuracy and is designed to last.

CON: Being a bolt action rifle the shooter may have to take their eye off the target to chamber the next round or to reload the 5 round flush magazine.

 

Knights Armament M110

The M110 is based off of the AR-10 and is a Semi Auto Sniper System (SASS). The rifle fires the .308/7.62NATO cartridge which has an effective range of 800 Meters.

PRO: The weapon is semi-auto letting the shooter acquire the target and keep an eye on the target after they fire the  weapon.

CON: The .308win does not have the range that some of the newer sniper rifles rounds have, such the .338 Lapua or The .408 Chey-Tac and .50 BMG.

Chey-Tac M200 .408 sniper rifle
M200

The Chey-Tac M200 intervention fires the .408 Chey-Tac bullet. This rifle has set its mark in the sniper community as an anti-personnel as well as an anti-material weapon at long range because it has a better ballistics table than the .50 BMG

PRO: Can take out a target at well over 2000 Meters

CON: Same as the Remington 700 in that it is a bolt action.
 

FN P90
fn_p90_1-749957

The FN P90 is a killer punch in a tiny package.

PRO: the weapon platform is small allowing for close quarters combat while still carrying upwards of 50 rounds.

CON: If you have a con for this weapon please share it with us.

M14

The M14 is another time proven weapon. This weapon as been in service since 1957 and is still being made. the M14 fires the 7.62NATO round  allowing for the weapon to go from medium range out to long range sniping.

PRO: Semi-auto fire, 7.62NATO round,  800 Meters effective range.

CON: it weighs in at 11 pounds and is not a weapon you could easily use in CQB

H&K G36
1289119189

Heckler-Koch G36  like the AR-platform lets the shooter customize the weapon to fit how the weapon will be used.

PRO: Reliable and accurate

CON: The weapon only fires the 5.56NATO round which is a small projectile and does not have the stopping power that a .30 caliber projectile has.

 

FN SCAR-H Mk.17
scar_h

FN Herstal SCAR-H MK.17 is similar to the AR. FN makes a few different  versions of the SCAR but the SCAR-H is chambered in the .308/7.62NATO round which has the stopping power and range to take down targets at various ranges.

PRO: quick change barrel and heavy caliber

CON: If you have a con for this weapon please share it with us.

AK-47
AK-47

PRO: the weapon works dirty filled with sand and water and keeps firing

CON: the weapon is not as accurate as an AR-15 or other similar weapons.

Ruger 10-22
ruger-10-22-crr

We couldn’t talk rifles without talking about this .22 LR. this is one of the most well known .22s other there. it has been designed to do one thing and do it well and that is shoot .22s all day long.

PRO: cheap. fun to shoot, easy to find ammo and companies make lots of different stocks to let the user have many different looking guns from a G36 to an AR-15 to double barreled “machine” gun.

CON: If you have a con for this weapon please share it with us.

AR-57

AR-57

424386316_pwarmsuppers-1%20revised%20copy_jpg807x2400

 

For all the the AR platform lovers who have seen just a small number of different configurations we have posted on this site here is another.

The FN P90 changed the design of their magazine to be on top of the weapon to keep the rifle in a small neat package to be a PDW but still allow for a large number of rounds to be loaded in the weapon.

The AR-57 upper simply replaces the standard  5.56/.223 upper and since the magazine is top mounted like the FN P90 keeps the weapon small while having the ability to to hold up to a 50 round magazine and not have a long magazine protruding from the weapon.

The magazine is the same as on the FN P90, depending on state and local laws for magazines modified magazine are available in 5 and 10 round set up.

fn_p90_4

17hmr, .22lr, .22MAG, 5.7x28
L-R .17HMR, .22LR, .22MAG, 5.7x28mm

The Carbine 16” barrel set up weighs about 7.45lbs. unloaded and just over 8.5lbs loaded with a 50round magazine.

FN P90

FN P90

I talked recently about the FN (Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal) FiveseveN pistol and how it was designed in conjunction with the FN P90 which uses the same 5.7x28mm round.

p90

Caliber : 5.7 x 28 mm
Weight (empty): 5.5lbs
Length: 19.7”
Barrel length: 10.4”
Cyclic rate of fire: 900 rpm
Practical rate of fire: 50 – 150 rpm
Magazine capacity: 50-30-10 round capacity
Sighting range: 150 m
Range of effective fire: 200 m

The P90 uses a unique “Top mounted longitudinal magazine” (patented by Rene Predazzer in March 6th 1990.) to give the shooter a compact bullpup design without the added length of a magazine hanging down off the weapon. With the magazine mounted on top of the gun it allows the magazine to span over half the length of the gun to carry up a 50 round magazine.

fn_p90_4

The weapon was designed for close quarters as a PDW and with police and military ability to fire body armor-piercing rounds it gives them a greater defensive close-combat weapon and allows them to clear a room faster without worrying about the length of the weapon they carry.

Since 2005, the P90 has also been offered to the civilian market as a semi-automatic sporting version with a longer barrel.
