Wilson Combat AR9 Review

This is a long term, 1 year review of the Wilson Combat AR9. It has an 8″ barrel and takes Glock mags. It is built from the ground up as a 9mm AR. I have ran all sorts of ammo through it and it has ran 100% flawlessly. It features a billet receiver set, their single stage 4lb trigger and I ordered mine in Burnt Bronze.

Precision Rimfire: A Primer

In the “off season”, if there is such a thing in the shooting world, I try and keep my skills crisp with rimfires. Sometimes it gets downright daunting reloading for a centerfire precision rifle. Enter the lowly, unforgiving, easy to shoot rimfire.
I say unforgiving simply because a rimfire at 50 yards using subsonic ammunition will highlight all of your shooting flaws, (at least for me that is).
A tiny bit too much pressure here, or a slight bit less bipod preload there, and your shot goes wide. It will definitely keep you on your toes, and you will find yourself begin to check off that internal marksmanship checklist.
The first part is the easiest. Picking the rifle. I have rarely come across a .22 rimfire rifle that wouldnt “shoot”. Now, “shooting”, is all relative really. Once you understand the capabilities of the hardware you are using, is when you strive to match its capabilities.

Burris XTR II 3-15X50 Review

Why try a Burris?

Several reasons led me to want to demo a Burris XTR II. I have seen other reviewers, as well as average consumers praise the scope that Burris created. I have owned one Burris optic, in the past, and remember good clarity, but a BDC type reticle, and turrets that I didn’t trust. Based on the features Burris built into the XTR II, I felt they built a scope to enter the market for so many shooters that use Mil, or MOA based scopes, and first focal plane.
