Matador Arms Mag Rotor Review

Our law says that magazines designed for the rifle are unlimited, but magazines designed for pistols are limited. Because the 10/22 Charger, a 10/22 platform […]

Remington 597 Review

The Remington 597 is a semi auto, magazine fed rimfire rifle that competes with other semi-auto 22’s like the Ruger 10/22, Marlin 795, and Savage 64. While the 597 doesn’t have the aftermarket support that the market leading 10/22 has, Remington has really pushed for more magazines and versions of the rifle. The 597 HB (Heavy […]

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 […]
