    Nikon M-223 2-8x32mm mounted atop a Smith & Wesson M&P15 TS

    Over the course of the latter half of 2012 I found myself consumed by the task of finding just the right optic for my AR-15. My quest was complicated by the fact that I specifically wanted an optic that had a low enough magnification on the bottom end to allow it to function reasonably well as a close-quarters reflex-style sight, but also have enough magnification on the top end to allow for precision shooting out to 300 yards or more. ...

    Below is the timeline in which Savage made the change from the old stagger-feed magazine system to the new center-feed magazine system. The change-over was drawn out over the course of four years which in many cases makes it difficult to say whether any particular rifle equipped with a blind magazine from those years would have a staggered or center-feed magazine. ...

    When discussing the Savage Axis rifle, there are two main shortcomings that come up time and time again. The first is the flexibility of the stock and the second is the heavy, gritty factory trigger. The former has been discussed ad inauseum in numerous posts and is not the subject of this article.

    The pickings of new toys from Savage Arms in 2013 is fairly slim, but there are a few notable items. For starters is the new Model 42 combination rifle/shotgun - a modern rendition of the classic Model 24 combination guns from years past. A new left-hand version of the Model 110 BA has also been added to the mix.

The spacing of slot centers is 0.394 in (10.01 mm) and the slot depth is 0.118 in (3.00 mm).[4] The only differences between the Picatinny rail and the similar Weaver rail are the size of these slots and the fact that they are standardized.

    For some, threadlockers are a mystery. For others, they are an everyday tool. Often known by simply their color and the generic (but trademarked brand) name "Loctite," they provide a way of keeping threaded fasteners from vibrating loose. This article attempts to explain (without going into excruciating detail) how threadlockers work, discusses the three basic types of threadlockers and their respective uses, and also provides information on what brands are available for retail purchase. Links to manufacturer's websites are included.

    Model 25 Walking Varminter outfitted with a Harris Benchrest bipod and a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9x40mm scope.

    Introduced at the January 2011 SHOT Show, Savage's Model 25 Walking Varminter has gotten off to a rather slow start. In fact, it's taken Savage a year and a half to begin shipping them from their factory. The hold-up, as I understand it, had to do with production delays associated with synthetic stock that is unique to this model.

    Like all Model 25's, the new Walking Varminter is based around a beefed up rimfire-style action. The bolt is of the 3-lug design and features a 45-degree throw for better scope clearance. Other features of the action include the adjustable 3.5 to 6-lb AccuTrigger and a side-mount two position safety - both of which are carried over from the rimfire rifles. The action ...

    Well, where do I begin? I guess well start low and work our way up to the last 99 offerings.

    First off is the model 1895, this is an easy one to identify, it will have a serial number under 10.000 and the pads on the sides of the receiver will be rounded instead of pointed like the model 1899s and 1895s. The forearm is very slender and rises to the receiver very sharply. Underneath the barrel youll most likely find a J or JM signifying that it was made by John Marlin who built the first 5000 rifles for John Savage. ...

    Today, i was handling my axis w/ the bolt out and i noticed that there was a lot of side to side play and wiggle with the trigger. So, what i did was take out the pin that the trigger pivots around and i put a tiny stainless steel washer on one side of the trigger. And, when i put my gun back together, the wiggle was greatly reduced, and when i dry-fired it, I realized that it did make the break of the trigger noticeably cleaner.
