Gun Test: Taurus GX4 Micro-9mm Handgun

For a long while, Taurus had a pretty decent gig churning out copies of Smith & Wesson revolvers. In the 1970s, the same conglomerate that owned Smith & Wesson purchased a controlling interest in Taurus, so the two companies shared technology and designs. In 1980, Taurus purchased Beretta’s São Paulo, Brazil, operational facility after completion of a…

Gun Tests: EAA Churchill 220 And 620 Optics Tactical Shotguns

By Jay GrazioWe’ve got a history in my family with shotguns in less-than-12-gauge. The first firearm I ever shot was a Stevens 311 side-by-side in .410-bore. My grandfather, not the largest guy on the planet, was an absolute sucker for the 16 gauge. I’ve got a safe full of shotguns in that now-rare gauge, from…

Gun Test: SIG Sauer P320 AXG Scorpion

By Jeff Johnston Different folks prefer different styles of handguns—that much is clear. But most folks who depend on a handgun for their job (and who are free to choose what gun they carry) either choose a high-capacity, striker-fired, polymer-framed gun, or they choose a high-capacity, metal-framed DA/SA gun. The main advantages of polymer, striker-fired…

Gun Test: Kimber K6s DASA 4″ Combat Revolver

Kimber America is commonly credited as making some of the finest production M1911 handguns and bolt-action rifles on the market. But, in 2016, the company decided to branch out into a completely new arena—revolvers. That initial product, the compact K6s, was an instant success on the concealed carry market, but it left the consumer wanting a…

Gun Test: Ruger MAX-9

Modern Ruger semi-automatic pistols, and to that group I shall include the just-introduced MAX-9, don’t quite fall into the late Rodney Dangerfield’s “I don’t get no respect” category, but I think it is fair to say that they do not receive the full faith and credit they deserve. While Ruger has its fans, and I count myself…

Gun Test: Springfield Armory Saint Victor .308

When I reviewed the Springfield Armory Saint in December 2016, at its introduction, I mentioned that it was merely the start of a product line, and hinted that I could see a large-frame variant in the future. Well, the manufacturer confirmed my powers of prognostication with the release of the Saint Victor .308 in April of last…

Gun Test: CMMG Resolute 9mm Upper And Magazine Inserts

March 04, 2020 4:36 PM ET By Jay Grazio, Shooting Illustrated First off, a giant mea culpa on this review. Specifically, the lateness thereof. The good folks at CMMG sent me the Resolute 300 series upper receiver in 9 mm, along with a pile of magazines and magazine inserts, not quite a year ago. I had originally…

Gun Test: EAA Girsan MC312

The inertia system is nothing new, as it was first developed by and used in Danish gunsmith Carl Sjörgren’s Normal shotgun in 1903, the same year John M. Browning’s Automatic-5 hit the market. In function it’s a simple system with few parts. When the gun is fired, it begins to move rearward; within the bolt…

Gun Test: Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield EZ

“That’s great, but when will you have a 9 mm?” If not discounted out of hand, that was one of two likely responses to the Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ chambered in .380 ACP. The other was, “I’ll take it.” This gun in its .380 guise represented a solution to what many gun company executives didn’t…
