Sniper Hider

If you have ever shot scoped rifles in direct sunlight you will be aware that it can sometimes be a big problem. It can be a struggle to see anything with glare on the lens. Scope manufacturers will often sell a tube which screws onto the front of the scope. These act as a sunshade…

Armageddon Gear suppressor cover

A suppressor, sound moderator or can.. Whichever name you call it they have positives and negatives. The positives are: reduced noise, reduced flash signature and reduced recoil. I have also found some suppressors used with some weapons enhance accuracy. I really like using them. They save my hearing and they give muzzle brake type recoil…

Review of the Ase Utra Jet-Z Compact moderator.

Sound moderators, supressors or “silencers” as non shooters like to call them have been a controversial subject over the years. First off the bat I would like to debunk the “silencer” myth and give a brief outline of what moderators are actually for… Many people believe they know something because they have seen it multiple…

Cleaning your rifles – a review of the M-pro7 universal cleaning kit.

I got hold of M-pro7s universal cleaning kit about 4 months ago. I had up to that point been a user of various brands until I ran into a problem – interactions between brands. I had cleaned my .22 semi auto AR upper with a Napier product (good product). I then lubed the upper with…

Load testing – Reload Swiss RS52

Reload Swiss are the newest propellant brand in the U.K. Propellants have suffered with supply problems in recent years here. Varget – the powder choice for many became virtually unobtainable and many other popular powders became a little hit and miss regards availability. The Reload Swiss brand was therefore highly anticipated.. The rollout was fairly…

Building a Precision Rifle – Part 3 – Extended range shooting.

The GnZ Precision rifle build has up to now been a huge success. At both 100yds and 600yds the rifle achieved very good results. Would this bear out at longer range. First we should bear in mind the budget so far.. MDT HS3 Chassis system – £500 Second hand Remington 700 ADL – £350 Second…

AR15 On a diet part 3.. ADMFG Recon scope mounts and Magpul furniture.

If you read the first in this series you will see the GnZ AR has changed considerably over the last few weeks. It began life as an SPR type build which was very popular about 5 years ago. The build looked to be modelled on a Knights Armament special purpose rifle.   These became very popular…

Timney 511 trigger update.

In the last article I discussed fitting the Timney trigger which was kindly demonstrated by Graham from ACP Shooting, Sussex, UK. The fitting was indeed as easy as the instruction manual promises (despite mild brain freeze on our part due to the left handed action). The 511 is a popular upgrade trigger for the left…
