Henry Repeating Arms announced five new long guns as the company unveiled its X Model series. First teased at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, these new guns are a complete, ground-up redesign of the lever-action. The five new guns are the:

- Lever Action X Model .45-70
- Lever Action X Model .410 Shotgun
- Lever Action Big Boy X Model – available in .38special/.357Magnum, .44 Special/.44 Magnum and .45 Colt



Image
Really dig those Henry's. A lever gun makes a nice suppressor host.
Yea. A .44 mag in their new Action X is going to be really hard to resist. .44 Spl would be a nice plinking round, and .44 Mag is suitable for deer out to 100yd or so.

Throw a can on it, and it seems like a setup with a lot of potential.
I'm thinking one in .45-70 will make for a good "brush gun", capable of taking down just about anything that threatens you while out hiking or exploring.
If I were in bear territory, I might agree. But since I'm not, I'll save the wear and tear on my shooting shoulder. ;)

I haven't bought Glock mags in a while, been thinking about stocking a couple extras. Anyone trusting Magpul Glock mags 100% these days? Last time I was really paying attention these were new on the scene and the general consensus seemed to be "great for range use, OEM to trust with my life". Still the case?

A local range found they last about 2,000 rounds each in their rental guns. Which makes sense since the mags are plastic.

About how long do the OEM mags last for them ?

I've only picked up a single Mapgul Glock mag, but that's mostly because Academy is usually sold out or only has the Glock 19 ones (I've got a G17, so I need the full sized ones).

I haven't loaded mine yet, but that's mostly because I keep my OEM mags loaded. I bought the Magpul one as a sort of an impulse buy, if I'm being totally honest.

I got a couple of G17 Magpul mags a couple years ago and they are in regular rotation. I have hundreds of rounds through each, not thousands, but they have worked fine so far. It may seem silly, but I don't like loading them as much, they feel a little squishy, if that makes sense. Another option are the ETS magazines, which seem to be reliable as well. This article compares the 3 and may be worth a read.

At only $20, I tend to go for Glock brand, except for the 30+ rounders which I use for range toys, I've got some Korean ones that work fine.

You should probably stick with bear mace. :clownshoes:
No worries, I shoot just fine with that shoulder. It may ache a little after a day at the range shooting 12 gauge slugs or 7.62x51 but compared to the pain from the nerve damage and the bad knees it's like the difference between catching your finger while closing your laptop and slamming your hand in a car door. It's minor stuff.

Recoil - Marlin Adds Two New Calibers to Dark Series


There is no doubt about it- lever guns are timeless and cool. Last year, Marlin redefined the look of the traditional lever gun with the release of their Dark Series. The first release consisted of two models: their Model 336 chambered in 30-30 Win and their Model 1895 chambered in 45-70 Govt. Later in the year, they released another Model 1895 chambered in 444 Marlin.

Now, Marlin has released two new calibers in the Dark Series. Both are 1894 models, with one being chambered in 357 Mag/38 Spcl and the other chambered in 44 Rem Mag/ 44 Spcl. The two new models have an MSRP of $1,099.

Welp, if shooting a 9-ish pound self-loading AR-10 in .308/7.62 Nato caused you to have concerns, then you're really gonna have some fun shooting .45-70 out of a 7.5 pound manual repeater....but hey, you do you, Thundercat. :awesome:

Stick one finger in your laptop; now close it as you would normally. Doesn't feel like much of anything, does it? That's how a day at the range with my rifles and shotgun feels compared to what I feel all the time from my nerve damage and my knees (fingers in car door simile)

Whoo, boy...


TFB - [SHOT 2020] Dillon Aero Introduces 503D Tri-Barrel 50BMG


Dillon Aero, makers of the M134D Minigun that is currently in service with the US Military, has come out with a new force multiplier. The Dillon Aero 503D is a tri-barrel 50-caliber rotary machinegun. It is entirely configurable for use aboard helicopters, boats, humvees, or armored vehicles. In other words, it’s a really, really big gun.

The primary concerns that Dillon Aero had while designing the 503D were reliability and durability. To that end, this new system has fewer internal parts than any of its competitors on the market, according to the booth representative. The maximum effective range is 1800 meters, and the 503D has an adjustable firing rate of up to 1500rpm.

I have to admit the new PSA Glock-alike is actually pretty interesting. I'll have to keep an eye on those, once they get into the public's hands.

And, you know, ignore the inevitable "It can't be good, it costs less than the original Glock". :roll:

I picked up a 10.5" 50 Beowulf upper and got a chance to test fire it over the weekend. I ran it on a pistol lower. First shot I smacked myself in the face with the iron sight. That pistol brace puts my face a lot closer to the action than a typical stock. And it seems it recoils a bit more than 556. :lol:

I moved the sight up one notch on the pic rail and that worked much better! It makes big holes.

What brand upper? I'm considering a 50 or 450 Bushy for moose this year...

In other news for the brain trust...

Also, just won a raffle for a rifle.... Budget 6.5 creedmor predator Mossberg Patriot. Haven't gotten a chance to pick it up yet, but excited for a prize gun.

Anyone have thoughts on one??
