Gun Test: Yankee Hill Machine’s YHM-8020 9mm AR Pistol

Posted by jhingarat21 on 22nd Sep 2015

“I want this with select-fire capability.” That’s the first thing James Scavetta said to me when I walked in to his shop to pick up the Yankee Hill Machine 8020 9mm AR pistol. James was grinning as he handed me the gun to examine. As I did, he verbally explored various ways of outfitting the gun to make it the ultimate self-defense tool.As the owner of Shadow Hawk in Spring Hill, Florida, James has seen a lot of different firearms come through his store, but this one caught his immediate attenti

Gun Test: Stag Arms 3T-M 5.56 NATO Carbine

Posted by jhingarat21 on 17th Sep 2015

The good news is Stag Arms’ 3T-M is a one of the more visually distinct ARs I’ve handled recently. The better news is the visual distinction is the result of some practical improvements that make this one of the best competition ARs out there, and a darn good firearm for just about any use to which you’d put a modern sporting rifle. Precise adjustments are possible with the graduated, dual-aperture rear sights, enhancing long-range accuracy. (r.) The front sight post is protected by diamond-sha

e of the things I can remember clearly from a lifetime of reading about guns are the classic phrases the old gun-’riters used to use. Pages were filled with things like “Use Enough Gun” or “Carry A Big Stick” or “A Pair and a Spare!” All come to mind easily. And one phrase I remember clearly — from reading 60 years ago — is “My work toughened hands.” This came from Elmer Keith and was given as one of the reasons he could handle heavy recoil in six guns. He had spent most of his young life as a r

Posted by jhingarat21 on 28th Aug 2015

 “Shoot from the hip” and “stick to your guns” are two prevalent idioms that happen to have firearm terminology. However, one that’s especially fitting for Ceska zbrojovka Uhersky Brod(CZ) is “third time’s the charm.” Why? Unveiled in 2009, the CZ EVO 3 A1 was the third (hence the name, “Evolution [EVO] 3”) and best incarnation of the selective-fire, blowback-operated, Scorpion-series submachine guns that originated as the brainchild of Ing. Miroslav Rybar (and upward of 13 other designers)

Gun Test: Benelli M4

Posted by jhingarat21 on 26th Aug 2015

The Benelli M4, the civilian version of the U.S. military’s M1014 Joint Service Combat Shotgun, has been with us more than a decade and in that time has produced an excellent—though not unexpected—service record. In creating the shotgun, Benelli eschewed its own inertia recoil system and instead borrowed from the then-new Benelli R1 semi-auto rifle, using the ARGO (Auto Regulating Gas Operation) system. Using two stainless steel, short-stroke pistons located just ahead of the action, ARGO
