This week Paul Levy, captain of the Brownells new product team, has special news for H&K fans. It's the Magpul line of upgrade components for the Heckler & Koch MP5 / SP5 / HK94 platform. Available variously in Maschinenpistole, semi-auto pistol, and carbine forms, the MP5 is the epitome of German engineering. And yet.... the design crew at Magpul has figured out ways to improve ergonomics, shooter comfort, and control. Magpul's SL Hand Guard is available in two lengths, for the standard MP5 and

Quick Tip: Clips vs Magazines
Quick Tip: Clips vs Magazines

We've all been there: we're watching an action/adventure movie involving firearms with friends or family, when one character on screen shouts, "I'm outta ammo, gimme another clip!" Whereupon, somebody in the room with you shouts back at the screen, "It's a magazine, NOT a clip!" If you're new to guns and shooting, you're probably wondering what's the difference™ We brought out the Brownells "big guns," techs Steve Ostrem and Caleb Savant, to settle that age-old question once and for all. A clip

Quick Tip: Chassis vs Stocks
Quick Tip: Chassis vs Stocks

Chassis systems have become increasingly common on rifles for PRS and other target shooting disciplines. So what is the difference between a chassis and the good ol' traditional wood rifle stock™ Brownells Gun Tech™ Caleb Savant lays it out for us. Chassis are (yep, it's spelled the same whether singular or plural!) precision machined to maintain a relationship between the barreled action and the chassis that isn't affected by humidity, flexing, or other factors that can exert pressure on the ba

From the Vault: Winchester 410 Prototype

Brownells Gun Techs Keith and Steve are on another excellent adventure at Rock Island Auction Company, this time to show us a Winchester prototype .410 bore pump action shotgun from the 1920s. Available evidence suggests it was a forerunner of Winchester's Model 42, one of the best pump shotguns ever made. It would have been used to work out the details of balance, weight, and operation to get a reliable gun ready for mass production.... except the final production Model 42 is quite different, m

Our man on the new products scene, Paul Levy, is back to show us the FM-9 9mm AR-15 Build Kit from Foxtrot Mike (aka FM Products). The folks at Foxtrot Mike have made building a pistol caliber AR super easy by putting ALL of the caliber-specific components in this kit. You then finish the build with your choice of upper, pistol grip, handguard, stock or brace, and other off-the-shelf AR-15 components. The kit contains a semi-stripped lower receiver, barrel, bolt assembly (technically not a "bolt

Quick Tip: Range Bag Essentials
Quick Tip: Range Bag Essentials

Summer is here, and it's time to hit the shooting range and send some lead through targets! Aside from your gun(s) and ammo, you'll need to bring some other things. The best way to lug them to the range is in a range bag. Brownells Gun Tech™ Caleb Savant gives us his list of items a properly equipped range bag should contain: 1. Gun oil (Caleb's favorite: Rand CLP) 2. Basic gun cleaning kit ("Having it and not needing it is better than needing it and not having it.") 3. Cleaning rod 4. Squib

Quick Tip: 350 Legend Muzzle Brakes
Quick Tip: 350 Legend Muzzle Brakes

Need to upgrade the muzzle brake on your .350 Legend AR-15™ Right now, nobody sells a muzzle device specifically designated for .350 Legend, and of course, your favorite .308 / 7.62mm muzzle brake / flash hider is way too small. What's the alternative™ Brownells Gun Tech™ Caleb Savant has good news: due to the .350 Legend's .355" bullet diameter, ANY muzzle brake for an AR-15 chambered in 9mm (aka 9x19mm, 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum) is the right size for your .350 Legend rifle. You can get excell

From the Vault: Remington Model 16

The gun itself is an exquisite blued-steel-and-wood creation with a slim, sleek receiver, and a magazine tube that loads from a port in the stock.
