    So why are we reviewing an obvious close quarter combat sight on a Savage firearm enthusiast website? Simple, tactical configurations that our readers like to do to their Savage rifles cover the complete spectrum. ...

    The Leupold BX-4 McKinley HD line of binoculars is all new for 2013, and I just happened to be fortunate enough to get my hands on a 10x42mm example for evaluation.

    I should probably start off by noting that I am not a binocular expert - not by any means. In fact, when it comes to binoculars I generally have very little interest in them and they have only played a minor role in my 30 years of hunting and other outdoor activities.

    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. ...

    I was recently sent a new tool used to align your reticle so as to be perfectly inline with the centerline of your firearm. ...

    For 2011 Leupold announced an all new line of rifle scopes dubbed the VX-R. What separates this line apart from the rest of Leupoldís hunting scopes is the fact that it features an all new proprietary FireDot illuminated reticle system. While illuminated reticles are nothing new, Leupold has upped the ante with its innovative and highly functional control system.

    News that Leupold & Stevens, Inc. had purchased the Redfield name and intended to revive the brand first hit the presses back in the spring of 2009. By the fall of 2009 the new Redfield Revolution line of hunting optics entered initial production and the new models were finding their way into the hands of gun writers at many of the well known publications. ...

    In the spring of 2010, Savage unveiled their new top-secret rifle the Edge, and within less than two moths after Savage unveiled this new rifle, EGW created a new, one-piece Picatinny/Weaver mount for it. At this time, there is no other alternative for a one-piece mount, for the Edge. This is the first product I have ever gotten from EGW and I will evaluate this new mount and describe how it fits, works, and how well it is made.

    The Edge is a new altogether different design rifle that has a dissimilar scope base mounting distance than that of the 110/10 model Savage rifles. The Edge is able to use the two-piece mounts made for a round back Savage 110/10 series rifle, but this limits the availability of ...

    When someone mentions the name Leupold, people automatically recognize the name for top-notch quality in sporting optics. I was excited to get a Leupold FX-3 competition silhouette scope, and hopefully it would fill my need for a lightweight benchrest scope that would fit 1-inch rings.

    When I first read about Leupoldís new line of laser rangefinders I knew right away that I wanted to get my hands on one. The feature that drew me in the most was the True Ballistic Range feature which all but eliminates the need to mentally account for uphill and downhill shots with either a gun or bow. Rest assured Iíve missed more than one deer due to not taking into account the angle of the shot in the heat of the moment.

    The RX-III combines laser rangefinding with digital electronics, an inclinometer, and the ability to deliver both True Ballistic Range - the ballistically equivalent range to the target - and the conventional line of sight distance measurement. Additional features include a built-in thermometer, scan mode, low battery indicator, and Leupold's Match 13 Reticle ...
