Steiner M5Xi Riflescopes

I am lucky enough to have a job which gives me access to some excellent shooting equipment. For the last couple of months I have been using Steiner M5Xi scopes exclusively on a number of weapon systems. I have also had the opportunity to visit Steiner in Germany and gain an understanding of their manufacturing…

Applied Ballistics Seminar NC

I was recently lucky enough to attend the Applied Ballistics seminar in North Carolina. When I say “lucky” I mean it because I live in the U.K. That is a pretty long trip and not cheap. My company sent me in order to expand my ballistics knowledge and I am very thankful as it proved…

WMS range – Wales

Formed informally, the committee is a group of target shooters who belong to disparate NRA affiliated clubs. They meet regularly to enjoy discourse and long range shooting. So named after a black and white photo resembling a meeting of a soviet collective farm, the committee is dedicated to safe shooting and a bit of science. Within…

Civillian Service Rifle – Urban Contact Match U.K.

The MPGS Gurkha on guard is positively beaming. He looks like the happiest man in Pirbright, and there is nothing he would rather be doing this early Sunday morning, than check in 100 civilians onto his base. He’s assisted by Fred from the NRA, who is armed with a list of names as he verifies the…

Building a Presicion Rifle Part 5 – Long range steel in the snow.

I must confess I am a little behind regards writing articles. I have been very busy shooting and testing kit which is very important or I would have nothing to write about! Last week I made the winter pilgrimage to Wales with some of the regular crew with a goal in mind. To run the…

Bolle Swat Ballistic Sunglasses.

I reviewed some shooting glasses last year from Bolle and Swisseye. Both pairs proved to be excellent but were very much designed for shooting use only. You could have worn them as general sunglasses but they would have stood out and been fairly noticeable. Both pairs were quite large and looked.. Well.. Shooty.. Although shooting…

Dolphin Gun Company tour and interview with Mik Maksimovic.

Recently I took one of our project rifles up to Dolphin gun company for a new barrel. We detailed the rebarrelling in the last Presicion rifle build article. I was lucky enough to watch Mik, part owner and head gunsmith, working on the rifle. His knowledge and experience in both shooting sports and engineering impressed…

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…
