    When it comes to custom rifles it seems everyone has their own idea of exactly what a custom is. Some think changing something as simple as the bolt handle or trigger on an otherwise stock gun makes it a custom. Others feel ...

    First introduced in 2010 as the Savage Edge, the entry level Savage Axis (name changed due to copyright/trademark issues) has taken the shooting world by storm in just a few short years. In fact, last I heard (summer 2012) Savage had sold nearly a quarter million units in two years time which is quite an accomplishment. To put that into perspective, that's 342.5 Axis rifles being sold every single day for two years.

    I was very excited when I was given the chance to do a product review on the Savage Mark II BRJ. I have always had a soft spot for rimfires and this one is a real head turner.

    Lately there have been a few threads asking about identifying the new or old MKII and 93 actions. Savage used to make two different receivers/actions. One for the MKII (.22lr or .17hm2) and one for the 93 series guns (.22mag or .17hmr). Sometime in the past year or so Savage started making the "E-Receiver". The e-receiver is now used for all of the 4 common rimfire calibers. Here are some pictures that show the past and present guns. ...

    2003 - Savage introduced their new ACCU-TRIGGER. Besides the trigger change, the receiver now has a round top in the rear scope base area which uses the same base in the rear as in the front. The Weaver #46 base will fit both ends as well as the #402 extension base if you have a need for mounting extremely long or short tube scopes.

    This is actually the second time I have reviewed a Predator Hunter model in this caliber - the first time being when the Predator Hunter first came out back in the summer of 2007. The only difference was that last time it was a right-hand model with a blind magazine and wearing Mossy Oak Bush camouflage, while this time around itís a left-hand model with a detachable box magazine (DBM) and RealTree MAX-1 camouflage. ...

    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.
