Cooey Ace Single Shot 22LR

It’s a bit funny to review a Canadian Rimfire rifle that’s about 90 years old, yet here we are. The Cooey Ace 1 is a single shot, bolt action 22LR made in Canada between 1929 and 1934. It was preceded by the Cooey Canuck and succeeded by other Ace’s, Model 39, and whatever other names […]

GSG-MP40 22LR Review

The GSG-MP40 is a German-made, MP40 style semi auto rifle chambered in 22LR. While original MP40’s are prohibited in Canada, the GSG-MP40 is non restricted, so you can get into a MP40 looking rifle for $599 that you can actually shoot. My 3 gun buddy Kurt loaned me this rifle for review. Features 12″ barrel23 […]

ISSC SPA Straight Pull Review

The ISSC SPA is a straight pull rimfire rifle made in Austria. Launched somewhere around 2014/2015 in 22LR, 17HMR, and 22WMR, there are shockingly few reviews available online, and none are in-depth. There are no in-depth reviews for the SPA/Scout, the Steyr Scout-esque stocked version of the straight pull SPA either. I borrowed this rifle […]

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 […]

Canadian Rimfire Precision Series CRPS

This past weekend, I went to my first CRPS shoot. Although I’ve shot lots of 3 gun, some IPSC & IPSC-ish pistol matches, and Service Rifle/CQB a few times, I had not done much precision rifle shooting. 3 gun reaches out to 400 meters sometimes, but we’re shooting 223 at big steel plates, and that’s […]

Savage B.Mag HB Review

Back when I did my initial review on the Savage B.Mag 3 years ago, I found the accuracy to be. . . really lacking, to the point where I didn’t see the point. I tried many things to resolve the accuracy issues and none worked. I know that some guys get great accuracy out of their […]

Savage 93F Review

Savage 93F

Goes for $300-$450 depending on model in Canada, and about $300 in the US. Unless you guys really, really, really want me to do an article on this one, I’m skipping. I wrote an article on the Savage 93R17 already, which is basically the same beast. Video review on Savage 93 22WMR

Marlin 70PSS “Papoose” Review

Back in 2006, I had a Marlin 795. It was inexpensive, reliable, lightweight and accurate. More recently, I’ve been looking at takedown 22s. I’ve had my hand at the Ruger 10/22 takedown, and wanted to try the Marlin again since it went so well the first time, but didn’t see a good opportunity until recently […]

Matador Arms Mag Rotor Review

Canada has some really weird gun laws and even weirder interpretations. Take the 10/22 as an example: semi auto 22 rifles aren’t capacity limited, but pistols are limited to 10. 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 […]
