B&T APC 556

Swiss-Tuned Assault Rifle and Carbine

MPAR-556: The Homecoming of AR-18

Eugene Stoner’s AR-18 design is a textbook example of how an unjustly neglected construction may return in its full glory after years of modifications and improvements. Although considered much better than AR-15 by many, it was newer officially adopted, but it served as a model for development of almost every modern assault rifle of today.

T/C Dimension: One Carbine to Rule Them All

T/C Dimension: One Carbine to Rule Them All

We can’t believe there’s a one-shot hunter who hasn’t heard of “Thompson/Center Arms Company”. Their single-shot break-action pistols and rifles Contender and Encore have become synonymous with a single-shot kill, especially because of their muzzle loader line. During the WW2, Warren Center was a specialist for several types of firearms in the US Army. After the war, he worked in Dallas, TX ... »

Kel-Tec KSG-12: Bullpup Door Breacher

When Kel-Tec launched their RFB bullpup autoloader in 2008, it was deemed a risky move.

FN SCAR

FN SCAR: This is my Rifle this is my Gun…

For the last two decades the US Army has been rearming its special forces units and some of those new weapons even made it into the infantry corps. Although some blamed the Army command for being weapon-chauvinistic, the fact that our troops use Belgian FN machine guns in Iraq and Afghanistan is enough to dismiss those accusations. Even the legendary and patriotic AR-15 concept is being replaced w... »
