SKS Rifle Review

It’s a bit funny reviewing something that’s 60-70 years old, but due to production numbers, the cost of an SKS is very low in countries where it’s still being imported like Canada. That cost ($229 from Cabelas Canada), combined with inexpensive ammo, makes the SKS a fantastically fun, cheap plinking rifle, and a lot of people […]

Browning BAR LongTrac Review

Have you ever pulled the trigger on game and knew that you missed? Pulled your bolt action rifle from your shoulder, racked the action so hard the empty case was sent into the next county, pulled up on your game, and saw it bouncing off into the distance? A semi-automatic greatly reduces the time needed […]

Remington 783 Review

I’ve wanted to do this review since the 783 was revealed at SHOT Show. I feel like Remington’s 710 and 770 rifles were missteps, with too many corners cut and I was excited at the prospect of a new budget bolt action rifle to compete with the Savage Axis. What I noticed, when I read […]

2013 in Review

2013 was a big year for The Hunting Gear Guy. Traffic has gone up considerably since our launch in February 2012; we’re now at ~30,000 visitors per month and we send 350 visitors per day to a variety of gun shops and other websites in Canada. Things will probably slow down past January, but it’s […]

Norinco Type 97 Review

The Norinco T97 (or Type 97) has been a 4 year process. Canada Ammo originally attempted to import them in bulk, but was stymied by a very late process RCMP review that found it was too easily converted to fully automatic. A renewed effort by North Sylva redesigned the trigger mechanism to eliminate this issue […]

Vortex SPARC Review

The Vortex SPARC is a midrange priced red dot great for use on AR15’s, 45-70’s, shotguns and other rifles where short range, fast shots are required. At the low range, you have Tascos, Bushnells, etc for about $100; at your high end, you have EOTech and Aimpoint at $400-$900. The SPARC fits in the middle […]

AR15 Parts in Canada – Stocks, uppers, etc

This is a big departure for this site, because AR15’s are restricted and can’t be used for hunting in Canada. But. . .I got an AR lower and wanted to find info on parts availability, and the spreadsheet below is the result. I just had to share it because it took a while and some of the […]

Remington M887 NitroMag Review

When I asked fellow gun enthusiastic friends to name the first shotgun that came to mind, the majority responded with “Remington 870”. Not one mentioned the Remington M887 NitroMag. This made me wonder if anyone had even heard of this boom stick before or if they just kept it in the “piece of crap” section […]
