Scorpio EM332A 22LR Review

The Scorpio EM332A is a Chinese manufactured, bolt action 22LR. The action itself is based on the Anschutz 54, so accuracy could potentially be very good. In fact, the 322 action is the same as that on the Norinco NS522 that I saw amazing accuracy out of. So, is the Scorpio EM332A a great way […]

BCL102 jams

BCL102 Review

The BCL102 is a non restricted, semi-automatic, 308 rifle made in Canada. It’s based on the AR102 design, which predates the AR15 design and so it’s not an AR15 variant and can be non restricted with a 18.5″+ barrel here in Canada. Because it’s non restricted, you could use one of these to hunt with […]

Kriss Vector Review

The Kriss Vector is a semi-automatic Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) in 9mm, 357 Sig, 40 S&W, 10MM and 45ACP. The one reviewed here is a Gen 1, but they have since released a Gen 2 as well. The most unique feature of the Kriss Vector is the recoil mitigation system called the “Super V System” […]

WK180-C Review

In Canada, AR15s and variants are restricted-class firearms, which means that they’re registered and they go to the range and back; that’s about it. They can’t be used for hunting or plinking and you need the upgraded restricted class license in order to own one. Since that’s so much of a pain, most people would […]

KM Arms M17S

K&M M17S 223 Review

Way back in 80s & 90s, Bushmaster bought the design for a bullpup rifle called the M17S. It was a short stroke, gas driven semi-auto that uses many AR180 parts in a bullpup configuration. Bushmaster stopped making it but more recently, K&M Arms has brought out an upgraded version of the bullpup rifle and on […]

Just enough room for a round

Ruger 77/44 Review

The Ruger 77/44 is a bolt action, rotary-magazine fed rifle using the 44 Remington Magnum pistol cartridge. Because it uses a (stout) pistol cartridge, the action is really compact, Ruger can get away with using locking lugs in the middle of the bolt instead of locking lugs at the front, and the rifle is very […]

Type 81 Review

The T81SA is a semi-automatic only version of China’s Type 81. As such, it’s a gas-operated, semi-automatic, magazine-fed rifle in 7.62×39. The Type 81 uses a short stroke gas piston setup and they were very rare outside of China, until now. Tactical Imports had these made by Poly Technologies in China and imported into Canada. […]

Browning AB3 Boltface

Browning AB3 Review

The AB3 is Browning’s hat in the ring on an inexpensive bolt action rifle. It combines components cheaper than their more premium X-Bolt (X-Bolt review here) while still offering some of the premium Browning features. How does it fit in the crowded budget bolt action rifle market with the Remington 783, Savage Axis II, Ruger […]
