MDT HS3 Review

When it comes to precision rifles, the stock is one of the more important parts. Wood stocks swell with humidity, and inexpensive plastic polymer stocks can be bendy or poorly fitted to the action. An aftermarket stock can improve the repeatability between shots improving accuracy, offer more flexibility in configuration, as well as offering more […]

Savage Axis XP Review The Savage Axis is a relatively new entrant into the bargain rifle category. Previously called the Savage Edge, the Axis is a modernization of the Savage 110 bolt action rifle in order to reduce costs while maintaining the generally excellent accuracy that Savage rifles are known for.

Marlin Model 795 Review

The 795 is Marlin’s most inexpensive 22 rimfire and one of the most inexpensive 22’s you can get in semi-automatic. I initially picked up this rimfire to use for light gopher shooting duty and have used it for plinking as well. At around $150 in the US and $219 in Canada, it’s definitely well priced. Marlin […]

Zastava M70 Review

Although the name says Charles Daly, this is really a Zastava M70 rifle at the heart. The Zastava brand has been gaining in strength in North America to the point where they no longer need to white label their products with brands like Remington, Century International Arms, or Charles Daly, because the Zastava brand stands on its own. This particular […]

Stainless Rifles for Hunting

Stainless steel rifles, sometimes called “All-Weather Rifles”, offer better weather protection than standard blued barrels and actions. If you hunt where it rains, or if you bring rifles in out of the frigid cold and have to deal with condensation, they can keep rust away and keep your rifle looking great without having to be […]

Steyr Scout Review

And now, for something completely different. While I have been doing a lot of reviews on budget bolt action rifles, here’s a decidedly non-budget, yet still utilitarian bolt action rifle. Here in Canada, the Steyr Mannlicher Scout clocks in at around $2,500 while in the US, it goes for around $2,000. And while I’m not […]

Henry US Survival Rifle (AR-7) Review

Henry US Survival Rifle (AR-7) Another niche rimfire rifle. While the Henry U.S. Survival Rifle is similar in price to the Henry Classic Lever Action 22, the design reflects a completely different purpose. The Armalite AR-7 Explorer that the Henry is based on was originally designed as a pilot’s survival weapon. Packed away in its […]
