The Winchester 1894 is the brainchild of John Moses Browning. He was an extraordinary individual and inventor. The lever action rifle was nothing new, but the Model ’94 owes little to previous rifles. The .32 Winchester Special features a .321-inch bullet. Introduced in 1901, the .32 Winchester Special was moderately popular but never achieved the popularity of the .30-30 WCF or the competing .35 Remington. Read to find out why the Model 1894 and .32 Winchester Special make a dynamic pairing.
Shotguns are the ultimate all-purpose firearm. With your favorite shotgun, you can head to the range to bust a few clays, clear a doorway when defending the homestead, or down a deer with slugs buckshot. Therefore, it is no surprise that shotguns are anything but a sideshow. Here are 20+ top scatterguns to fit every shooter’s high demands.
Some years ago, when the Kahr 9mm pistol was introduced, I obtained and tested an example as soon as possible. In doing so, I found a reliable handgun with excellent features. A smooth Double Action Only trigger, excellent machine work, and a truly compact frame made for a trend-setting pistol. The design was both fresh and intelligent.
Most shooters advance quickly. They go from having difficulty controlling their shots to what they think is good shooting. If they do not have other shooters to gauge their accuracy by, they often have an overinflated idea of their own skills. A few rounds of IDPA competition will put things in perspective. It is tempting to get pretty good with the handgun and then empty the pistol into the target. Machine gunning a paper target is fun but it isn’t viable training, and you do not learn much.
PTR builds an excellent 7.62x51mm rifle based on the Heckler and Koch G3 rifle. A semi automatic version of a reliable and accurate battle rifle, the PTR 91 rifle uses an interesting delayed blowback roller locking system that is different from most rifles. While there are other copies of the HK 91/G 3 rifle, the PTR is arguably the only one to boast equal quality.
The CZ 455 American is easily one of my favorite rifles of all time. However, when I opened the box, my first thought was, “I am so lucky.” The stock on the new CZ 455 rifle showed excellent fit and figure. CZ rifles are never bad, but this was an exceptional piece. Looks are important, but performance is the essence of a Range Report—the CZ 455 American did not disappoint.
Not long ago conversation around the fireplace drifted toward the subject of all-around rifles. I like these moments because my grandson is old enough to shoot, and he is interested in firearms but hasn’t heard it all before. I enjoy a number of interesting rifles including the M1A1 and the AR-15. A certain place in my heart belongs to the Winchester 1895. But if you are on a strict budget but need an all around pest, deer, hog and defense rifle it is difficult to beat the SKS rifle.
