by David Crane [email protected] The following article was written and published in June, 2002. It’s no secret that the performance of both the M4 Carbine and it’s 5.56x45mm caliber have, so far, been somewhat less than outstanding in the war against Al-Queda forces in Afghanistan.

New Recon Rifle by Arms Tech Ltd.
by David Crane [email protected] Pete Kokalis has written an article in the latest issue of SAR(Small Arms Review) on a new rifle that’s designed to be sort of a quick-fix for the Colt M4 carbine.

Knoxx Industries has come out with two products that are …Read More »

Now, I realize that "high-tech" and "revolver", don’t usually go together well in a sentence, but bear …Read More »
FN P90 PDW at TREXPO East

Please notice that I did not say “submachinegun”, when speaking of the P90.
