What is Heckler & Koch MP5?

The Heckler & Koch MP5 is a submachine gun that comes from West Germany. The ammo is fed into the MP5 by a long detachable magazine that fits underneath the receiver. There are different size magazines available for the Heckler & Koch MP5. They can have anywhere from a 15-round to a 40-round capacity. There is even a military grade drum magazines which can hold up to 100 rounds.

There are a lot of different submachine guns, but the Heckler & Koch MP5 is the most popular of them all. Approximately 40 countries currently make the MP5 available to security companies, intelligence agencies, military branches, and law enforcement agencies. For decades, SWAT teams in the United States used the MP5 as their primary weapon of choice. They recently replaced it with the AR-15, though.

Remington 1100 Shotgun Review, Top 8 Upgrades and Accessories

Remington 1100

Remington has made gas-operated shotguns since the 1950s. Their very first one manufactured was the Model 58 semi-automatic shotgun. This shotgun line enjoyed a fair amount of success between 1956 and 1963. But then, they built a better gas-operated shotgun which reduced recoil a lot more. This model was called the Remington Model 1100. It was first introduced in 1963 and has been manufactured ever since. The three most common gauges manufactured for this shotgun are the 12-gauge, 28-gauge, .410 bore and 20-gauge.

Remington Model 597

When I say .22LR semi-auto rifle, what immediately comes to mind? The Ruger 10/22, right? Over the last 60 years, Ruger has cornered the market on semi-auto .22LR rifles.

Best Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun Accessories and Upgrades

Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun

The Kel-Tec KSG shotgun is a revolutionary 12-gauge bullpup pump-action shotgun. In case you didn’t know, a bullpup shotgun is one where the action is situated behind the trigger group. The Kel-Tec KSG contains two magazine tubes that allow a person to manually switch between them in real-time. Each magazine tube can hold seven shotgun shells that are 12-gauge and 2.75 inches long. If you are using 3-inch shotgun shells, then each magazine tube can hold six of them. This can certainly hold a lot more ammunition than a classic shotgun which only has one magazine tube. The people who use the Kel-Tec KSG are generally those who like to shoot a lot of ammunition and don’t like to waste too much time with reloading.

Benelli M2 Shotgun Upgrades, Accessories and Modifications for 3-Gun and Practical Shooting

Nordic Components Extended Bolt Release

Readers of the blog know that I like to often participate in dynamic/practical shotgun shooting competitions (they have different names such as the International Practical Shooting Confederation, United States Practical Shooting Association, 3-Gun Nation, International Defense Pistol Association, etc).

Such competitions are the best way to check your skills under stress. You need to move fast from one shooting position to another, load your shotgun quickly and shoot from various positions at different targets at a variety of distances with all types of common shotgun ammunition: birdshot, buckshot, and slugs.

The most popular dynamic shooting sport in the USA is 3-Gun Nation. That is why I often receive questions about semi-auto shotguns because they are mostly used in 3-Gun.

What is 3-Gun competition?

There are many types of shooting competitions out there for gun enthusiasts to take part in. But one particular competition that is getting a lot of attention is the 3-gun competition. This is where competitors have to use 3 different types of firearms such as a rifle, shotgun, and pistol. The average shooter is usually pretty good with one particular firearm but not so good with the others. This makes 3-gun a real challenge because it tests their skills with all three firearms and it requires different skill sets in order to win the competition.

Why Benelli M2?

Most of the shooters in this sport use Benelli M2 or Beretta 1301 Competition shotguns. Beretta 1301 comes with an oversized safety, bolt handle and bolt release button from the factory. The Benelli M2 shotgun can be enhanced with aftermarket parts.

My friends who use semi-auto shotguns are fans of the Benelli M2. That is why this post will be about the Benelli M2 shotgun upgrades, accessories, and modifications for 3-Gun and practical shooting.

Special thanks to my friends: Igor, Oleg, Maxim, Oleg and Patrick for help :)

ATI (Advanced Technology) Upgrades and Accessories for Remington 870

ATI (Advanced Technology) Upgrades and Accessories for Remington 870

I have announced review of the ATI Talon stock and ATI Talon Aluminum forend some time ago. Now, after tests, I can tell you that it is nice set with many interesting features. The only disadvantages are complicated installation and heavy weight of the stock.

Don’t trust many negative reviews of the ATI stock and forend. I think that most of the negative reviews were from people who installed upgrades incorrectly. I am not affiliated with ATI and this is honest review with advantages and disadvantages of this set.
