Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

Introducing the .370 Sako Magnum

ANOKA, Minn. – Big game hunters looking for a new caliber offering heavy bullets will love the new .370 Sako Magnum. Federal Premium will load a 286-gr Barnes Triple-Shock X-Bullet option, as well as a 286-gr Nosler Partition offering that will be available in the summer of 2008.

Like its European counterpart the 9.3x66mm Sako Magnum, the new .370 Sako Mag provides excellent stopping power and is a great choice for hunting large game at shorter distances. “This caliber has a steady following in Europe,” said Ammunition Brand Manager Rick Stoeckel. “And this caliber makes perfect sense in the United States for hunters in pursuit of game like moose and bear.”

The .370 Sako Mag is also a viable cartridge for Africa, as it achieves energy levels comparable to the heralded .375 H&H. Out to 100 yards, the .370 Mag and 375 H&H carry similar energy levels, and after 100 yards the .370 Mag actually gains an advantage.

The new cartridge is built on a case slightly longer than a 30-06 and is necked up to .366 caliber. This allows guns to be built with standard actions as opposed a large magnum offering. Both new rounds will be high energy loads that boast heavy bullets for excellent performance.

Available in 2008:

Part No. - Description

P370B - 370 Sako Mag 286-gr Nosler Partition

P370C - 370 Sako Mag 286-gr Barnes Triple-Shock X-Bullet
