Ruger's SR-556 Carbine

April 6, 2010

Ruger introduced its new SR-556 rifle at last year's National Rifle Association show in Phoenix. The announcement ended years of speculation that Ruger was indeed working on an AR-style rifle, and the SR-556 quickly became the buzz of the show.

February 4, 2010

Vang Comp and Wilson Combat are two others that offer shotgun modifications. For less than $250, Shain can reduce felt recoil and muzzle jump, giving operators a shot pattern of 4 inches or less from 50 yards. "What can we do to hot rod this gun," Shain asks, not needing an answer. "It's a great gun out of the box, but how can we squeeze every last drop of performance out of this gun."
