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.”

Ruger Introduces the 77/357

(GunReports.com) -- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) has announced the Ruger 77/357, a lightweight, bolt-action rifle chambered in the .357 Magnum and fed via a rotary magazine.

The bolt-action 77/357 features a five-round rotary magazine and is offered in the Ruger All-Weather configuration, which includes a durable, weather-resistant stainless steel barrel and receiver and a rugged, black composite stock.

Although it is fitted with fully adjustable iron sights, the 77/357 also ships with patented Ruger scope rings, allowing a variety of sighting options for this 5.5-pound quick-handling rifle.

"The 77/357 is an effective tool for hunting medium-sized game - especially in heavy cover," said Bruce Rozum, Chief Rifle Engineer at Ruger. "Bullet velocities of .357 Magnum ammunition increase significantly when fired out of the 77/357's 18.5 inch cold hammer-forged barrel.

"In testing, Hornady 140-grain FTX® loads were clocked at over 1820 feet per second. Furthermore, the flush-fit, five-shot rotary magazine does not protrude at the rifle's balance point and, unlike tube-fed rifles, the Ruger 77/357 can be readily loaded and unloaded."

My request to Ruger a few months back was for a Model 96 lever action in .357 mag. A .357 Bain & Davis would be really nice.

I bet this gun would be fun to shoot.

Now get rid of the bolt and add a lever and Ruger would have something special....A Savage '99.

I'll keep my Marlin 1894C lever action 38/357.

Shades of the Spanish "Destroyer" carbines!!!!! Even better, it's in a caliber that's available almost everywhere! Think I 'need' to get one, pronto!!!!

Just checked the Ruger website for the specs.... Are you freakin' kidding me? Almost $800????????? Maybe $357.00, but not 800 smackers. Come on, Ruger, get real. Was really interested but your pricing just lost you a customer. Even if it IS the MSRP and the 'street price' might be lower, that's way too much. Fire a few beancounters and try again.

Tower gunner, Ruger years ago used to sell guns for a very reasonable price, not anymore.

njcountyofficer: No s***!!! Almost had a cardiac episode when I saw the price! Got to admit it's been a while since I got my last Ruger but still......! Wanted a light little carbine for plinkin' but think I'll go back to trying to find a "Destroyer", probably get one a lot cheaper than a Ruger.

working my body is the funnest activity ive ever done in my life. i used to be podgy and disliked my life, but now everything is great because i lift all the time anyday im stressed because of it. and i do have crappy dread days where that happens. http://punchingbagstand.net punching bag punching bag
