Product Spotlight: MDT ACC Chassis System

Today Paul Levy talks with Kyle van Ruitenburg of Modular Driven Technologies about one of MDT's most popular products, the ACC Chassis System. The Adjustable Core Competition chassis, or "ACC" for short, was designed specifically to be a super-stable shooting platform for PRS competition. "Adjustable Core" refers to the weight system inside the ACC chassis's forend; a 5-piece weight pack can be installed to add up to 2.5 lbs. MDT also offers weights that clamp onto the forend's M-LOK slots and

Smyth Busters: What Does the "AR" in AR-15 Stand For™

In their continual fight against the Dark Triad of ignorance, misinformation, and erroneous assumptions, Brownells Gun Techs Caleb and Steve set the record straight on a common point of confusion: What does the "AR" in AR-15 really stand for™ Is it Assault Rifle™ Army Rifle™ Automatic Rifle™ Wrong on all counts! "AR" stands for Armalite Rifle, developed by Eugene Stoner when he was chief engineer of the Armalite Corporation. (After developing the rifle, Armalite sold the AR-15 design to Colt in

Product Spotlight: Area 419 Hellfire Muzzle Brake

Caleb is joined by Craig from Area 419 to tell us about the innovative Hellfire Muzzle Brake. The Hellfire actually consists of two devices: a self-timing muzzle brake that does not require custom fitting or a jam nut to align correctly on the muzzle AND a universal adapter that lets you easily swap the Hellfire brake for other muzzle devices. The problem with a traditional muzzle brake is you can install it with its bore perfectly aligned with the bore of the barrel, but when you remove and rei

From The Vault : US Test Trials Smith and Wesson XM-9 Model 459 Pistol

We are back at Rock Island Auction Co. with Brownells Gun Techs™ and devoted students of firearms history, Keith and Steve, to check out one of the XM9 pistol prototypes submitted by Smith & Wesson for evaluation under the Joint Service Small Arms Program. Launched in 1977 to find a replacement for the Colt M1911A1, the JSSAP sought a double action service pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum (9mm Luger or 9x19mm) with a double stack magazine that held 15 rounds. The winner would be adopted as the

Brownells new product guru Paul Levy is back to show us two new arrivals, starting with the Civil Defense Rifle. Produced by KE Arms, the CDR is the result of collaboration between KE, InRangeTV, and Forgotten Weapons. This light, maneuverable AR-15 carbine borrows from the upcoming WWSD Rifle ("What Would Stoner Do"), but you can get your hands on a CDR right now! It's built on KE's lightweight KP-15 molded polymer lower receiver, with an ambi safety and the KE Arms DMR Trigger providing a shor

Product Spotlight: Smith & Wesson M&P Shield Plus

Smith & Wesson offers a broad assortment of M&P Shield models. So what's the difference between the M&P Shield M2.0 and the new M&P Shield Plus™ Brownells Gun Techs Caleb and Steve have the answers. The primary difference is (drum roll please!) the Shield Plus's higher magazine capacity, resulting in a slightly thicker grip and a slightly longer magazine catch. And that larger magazine is a big deal: you get 10 rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19mm) in the Plus's flush-fit concealed carry mag vs. only 7 r

Smyth Busters: Does a "Flitz" Trigger Job Work™

So you want a trigger job on your gun, but you're not a gunsmith AND you want to spend practically nothing on it™ A Flitz trigger job is NOT the way to go, say Brownells Gun Techs Caleb and Steve, aka the Smyth Busters. A "Flitz trigger job" is essentially putting Flitz metal polish on the trigger mechanism and cycling the gun repeatedly to - in theory - make the trigger pull smoother. You'll make the trigger mechanism very clean, but a little gun grease will give you the same smoothness - witho

From The Vault : Egyptian Hakim Rifle

As the living embodiment of coolness itself, Brownells Gun Techs Keith and Caleb are the right guys to be at Rock Island Auction Company to show us a gun with a high Coolness Factor: the Egyptian Hakim service rifle. The semi-auto Hakim started life in Sweden as the AG-42 rifle (the Automatgevär m/42) designed for the Swedish army and manufactured 1942-45, before the tooling was sold to Egypt in the 1950s. Chambered in 8mm Mauser (aka 7.92x57mm Mauser), the Hakim served as Egypt's main battle ri

Daily Defense Season 2 EP 18: Improve Your Marksmanship by "Zoning Out"

With a self-defense gun, "accuracy" does not refer to the firearm's absolute potential accuracy under ideal shooting conditions, but rather how accurately YOU can shoot it in the real world.
