    Now if only we could get this to happen in New York….. film Fences Last week, Governor Peter Shumlin signed H. 5 into law, officially making Vermont the 41st state to legalize the private possession of suppressors. The new law, which will go into effect on July 2nd, was the culmination...

    AI just released their new rifles for 2014 at SHOT and as expected they've raised the bar again. Barrel change feature with 1 allen key and two bolts, lots of other upgrades and the usual AI battleship built quality. High end without doubt, but if you want out of the box perfection it's tough to...

    Looking to possibly picking up an AI MK3 in 308 with a fixed stock. Anyone running an AI? Are they worth the coin?

    If you haven't seen this rig yet, you're in for a serious treat. Pretty much the ultimate switch barrel rifle, so ready your drool cups.

    I recieved my pistol permit back in jan, and since then I've tried shooting each weekend I spend up at my cabin where I built a 100yard range. For example saturday I ran through 250 rounds of 45 and by the end of that I could feel quite fatigued and while me and my buddy were having fun just...

    Went out to Calverton this morning to try to zero in my new optics for the Mossberg 500, and ended up taking EVERYTHING off the gun and shooting it near factory condition. It was shooting a little high. And by that I mean like 20 feet high. Landing in the dirt above the target stands on the...
  7. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    Couple of other threads prompted me to start this one. I only own one rifle. A .22 that was my first gun at around age 13-14. I have been thinking about getting more into a rifle to shoot for accuracy. Just something to challenge myself with. To give me a break once in a while from my...

    I live in NYC and just bought an accuracy intl ax308 bolt action rifle. The people at licensing said that it would not pass because it has a 10 round magazine, has a pistol grip, and a adjustable stock. HELLO!!!!! The AX 308 is not a semiautomatic.....its a bolt action!!! A pistol grip and...
  10. Long Range Precision Shooting
    I'm wondering what the concensus is with the large platform target style AR's compared to a bolt gun regarding accuracy. Can the AR models w/ floated bull barrels acheive similar results? Does the gas system give up velocity?
  11. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    I have been toying with this idea and have been reading customer reviews and other articles. One thing I see is the "conventional wisdom" that accuracy will suffer with a 1:8 rate of rifling twist in the 5.56 barrel vs. the 1:15 found in .22LR barrels. Can anyone give me an idea of about how...

    A few months ago a cheap .308 followed me home. The Savage Axis. I paid around $270 for the rifle. I wanted to add a .308 to the family to use as a range toy. I have other centerfire rifles (with quality optics that cost much more) but just wanted a .308 for some reason. I decided to make this a...

    This has been bugging me for a while so I though to myself 'self, why not ask these folks to see what they know and think', so here goes: You have two rifles. Both are mechanically the same AFA function, (we'll say bolt action for the sake of simplicity), rifling, materials, caliber, barrel...

    The guys from AI are customers of the sharpening company that I own (VRI Sharpening Services ) He stopped in to drop off some tools for sharpening and brought one of his toys. .308 with a Tooley action and barrel

    Longer rifle barrel length does not make a rifle more accurate from an internal ballistics standpoint. The quality of a barrel does, however. What a longer barrel does give is more stability in a shooting position due to weight and fulcrum balance. A longer barrel will give higher velocities and...

    Soooo... Out of the box, what flavor of .308 would be more accurate - an "AR-style" .308, such as a Remington R-15, or a more traditional semi-auto or bolt-action .308?
