    Polymer80.com has come up with an interesting concept with a polymer AR15 80% lower receiver kit. The kit delivers an easier path to finish the drilling and milling than regular 7075 or 6061 forged aluminum receivers for DIY home gun makers. The reason is mainly due its polymer construction. The Polymer80.com has most of the key areas molded and machined, includes a disposable jig, and even drill/mill bits in a kit all the cost of your typical receiver. And we're going to build one and see how it does.

    Barnes 10An Easy Way to Train With 300 Blackout
    Today’s spotlight is on a very special set from Barnes Precision Machine--an AR-15 with uppers in both 5.56 and .300 AAC Blackout. Why two upper receivers? That is the brilliance of the Blackout. 300 AAC was designed from the ground up to work with all existing AR-15 components except the barrel. Magazines, bolt, and all the internal parts are identical. But the real benefit comes from active training.

    Can you crack open a 5.56 when you accidentally chamber a 300 Blackout? Yes. Yes you can. With a basic understanding of the cartridge and its personality issues, 300 Blackout is the bomb. For those who are careless, 300 Blackout can be a bomb. What else should look out for? In our ongoing coverage of the 300 Blackout, I offer this in-depth look at some of the personality quirks of the platform.

    General George S. Patton once called the M1 Garand the “best battle implement ever devised.” But was he correct? The run up to World War II saw a giant leap forward in technology for weapons of war. The jet airplane was invented for WWII. Of course the atomic bomb was invented for WWII. But more importantly, the weapons that saw the most combat, the infantry battle rifles of the war, changed considerably as well, worldwide. The SVT-40 never really got out of the gate due to the later popularity of the AK-47, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was an influential rifle on the Eastern front during the war, or the fact that it totally rocks. We got to test an actual 1943 SVT-40 side by side with an M1 Garand, and the results may surprise you.

    We’re gun guys. As such, we’ve been closely following the events in Ferguson. As the conditions deteriorate, more and more innocent Americans are being victimized by opportunistic thieves, who have no connection to the root of the protests. When cars show up in neighborhoods with the license plates already removed…well, it seems understandable that some store owners are standing up to protect what is rightfully theirs. What guns would you take?

    Gunslingers agree on very few things, but one of them is that bigger, longer guns are easier to shoot, and to shoot well. This is doubly true when you have to do a lot of shooting. Glock owners are a fierce bunch of gunslinging devotees, and now they have a Gen. 4 version of what is essentially a bigger, longer .45ACP Glock 21. This is the last of a competition trio that joins the G34, a long slide 9mm G17, and the G35, a long slide .40 G22. This new G41 has a barrel about .6 inches longer and it has about 3/4 inch more sight radius than the G21, but it actually comes in a couple ounces lighter.
