Winchester Expands Super X3 Line with Two Sporting Shotguns

Winchester Expands Super X3 Line with Two Sporting Shotguns

And the company is shooting for more with a recent expansion of the line of semi-automatics. Related GunDigest Articles New Shotgun: Winchester's Super X4 Pull! Gallery of 12 New 2015 Shotguns SHOT Show: Great New Shotguns for 2017 Winchester has turned its eye to sport shooters with the addition of the Super X3 Ultimate Sporting Adjustable model and Composite Sporting Carbon Fiber model. And while each shotgun has its own specific features, both appear ready to break their fair share of clays. The Super X3 "Ultimate Sporting Adjustable" is an upgraded model of Winchester’s Sporting Adjustable Shotgun. Like its predecessor, the new smoothbore features an adjustable comb, which will go a long way to facilitate a more intuitive shouldering and pointing of the gun. But the company has included a few new perks that sets the shotgun off from older iterations. In particular, the Super X3 Ultimate Sporting Adjustable is outfitted with a signature Red Briley bolt handle and bolt release button and magazine cap weight system. The final feature is intriguing, as it expands the customization of the gun by allowing the user to fine-tune its balance by adding or removing weight. The Super X3 "Composite Sporting Carbon" Fiber boasts nearly all the features of the Ultimate Sporting; there are some notable exceptions, such as the adjustable comb. But it is a marked break from the other new semi-automatic with its furniture, as it is outfitted with a synthetic stock. The carbon fiber dipped finish should make the gun quite resilient to the bumps and bruises that can come with hard use. Not to mention, it gives the shotgun a rather modern, sporty look to boot.

The 4 Best Remington 700 Trigger Upgrades – Aftermarket Reviews 2020 Photo by Wendy / CC BY The Remington 700 is an excellent overall rifle and is used for hunting, target shooting and tactical use. The rifle, however, has a weak point—the trigger. The trigger has actually been the subject of a recall for being quite dangerous. Luckily, installing an upgraded trigger in general is the perfect way to increase the weapon’s accuracy. An upgraded trigger on your Remington 700 is one of the most important methods to increasing its shootability and overall precision. Below, we’ve scoured the marketplace and come up with the 4 best Remington 700 trigger upgrades . These should be just the ticket to your rifle needs. These can all be purchased from an online gun store like Brownells. Remington 700 Calvin Elite Trigger Timney Remington 700 "Calvin Elite Trigger" Price: 249.99 A gentleman named Calvin has been engineering triggers for Timney for quite some time. If you’ve ever used a Timney trigger, it was probably been engineered by Calvin. Calvin builds triggers to Timney’s specifications. However, the Calvin Elite trigger was Mr. Calvin’s opportunity to build a trigger to his preferred specifications. The Calvin Elite trigger is a single piece drop in model designed to replace your Remington 700’s trigger quick and easily. "The Calvin Elite" trigger pack is distinguished by its golden finish which is different from Timney’s standard black. The Calvin Elite Trigger is designed with an adjustable trigger weight, but it’s extremely light. The setting starts at a mere eight ounces and only goes to 2.5 pounds. Even at its heaviest trigger setting the trigger is still superbly light. At ounces you have a trigger designed to hit small targets at long range with ease. At 8 ounces, you’ve need some time to train and practice shooting with such a light trigger weight. Once it’s safely mastered the Calvin elite is a brilliant trigger. It’s a drop in, self contained trigger pack so it’s pretty easy to use and install. The trigger is extremely well made, much more durable than the standard stock Remington trigger. The important parts are Teflon nickel coated. The trigger is also fully adjustable for sear engagement and over travel as well. This is easily one of the best aftermarket triggers for Remington 700 rifles. Timney Calvin Elite Remington 700 unbox / Remington Recall Rant Watch this video on YouTube

Survival Gear Review: Vortex 836 Solo Monocular

Survival Gear Review: Vortex 836 Solo Monocular

A monocular is little more than half a binocular. At least in principle. But in reality, more is less, and more is more. A pair of binoculars gives a wonderful view of the world. Your eyes can relax and enjoy the far away for hours. But binoculars weigh more. Cost more. require eye alignment and diopter adjustment. And, if dropped may never again perform worth a hoot. Monoculars , on the other hand, are much more (and less) than half a pair of binoculars. They actually weigh less than half a binocular, cost less than half a comparable binocular, contain fewer moving parts than a pair of binoculars, and incapable of going out of binocular alignment. Monoculars combine (there’s no choice really) the image focus with the individual eye adjustment. That all said, monoculars do have their downsides, but if a monocular is your thing or your need, then one glass tube to consider is the Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular . GEAR DETAILS Recommended Recommended Vortex 8×36 Solo Monocular Rubber armor protects you from bumps/bruises and provides traction A fast, lightweight, small viewing option Extendable eyecup Check Price on OpticsPlanet.com Check Price on Amazon.com Quick Navigation Be a VIP Invest in Plastics Slow is Smooth and Smooth is Fast Choose One Be a VIP Vortex is a major player in the outdoor optics space. From binos to rifle scopes to red dots to spotting scopes, Vortex Optics. delivers a range of goods from budget overseas glass to the highest of the high end optics that sit comfortably in the four figures. Related: Prepper Uses for a Ranger Finder And then there is the Vortex VIP warranty. It truly has to be experienced to be believed, but hopefully you won’t need to experience it. Personally I have used it three times, and all were more than I expected. And in two cases, brand new kit showed up rather than fixed or re-manufactured gear. I should say, however, that I have also received amazing service from Leupold and have no doubts that although Vortex promotes their warranty, other top notch companies also exceed expectations. The specs of the "Vortex Solo 8x36" monocular are as follows: Weight: 9.7 ounces Thickness 2.6 inches Length: 4.9 inches Field of view at 1k yards: 393 feet Eye relief: 18mm Street price: $100 plus or minus Dissecting the specs, the fun begins with the eight power. 8x is down the middle of the magnification for handheld optics. 6x is for the opera. 7x is for use on boats. 8x is for active land use. Nine and 10x is on the upper end of power for handheld optics. And 12x and above are for special purpose binoculars including bird watching and astronomy. The reason eight-power is the norm and ten is the top is because any less is of little help and any more is too hard to hold still for useful viewing. If you hike up a hill, you won’t be able to hold a pair of 10x binos still enough to get maximum use from them. Same with monoculars. As your heart pumps and your lung cycle, so do your optics bounce. GEAR DETAILS Recommended Recommended Vortex 8×36 Solo Monocular Rubber armor protects you from bumps/bruises and provides traction A fast, lightweight, small viewing option Extendable eyecup Check Price on OpticsPlanet.com Check Price on Amazon.com Invest in Plastics The Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular feels stout yet light. But not so light to feel cheap. the rubber armor both protects against bumps and bruises as well as provide some sure traction for your fingertips and gloves. The coating covers a durable but non-metal housing. To reduce costs, the case materials are not the magnificent elegantly-machined magnesium of a professional Nikon camera or Leica Ultravid binoculars. Also Read: Leupold LTO Tracker The grab-and-go nature of a monocular give the user a fast, lightweight, small viewing option designed more for speed and carry than actual long-term viewing. One of the main reasons for buying a higher-end optic is for sustained viewing and for those jobs where sorting out fine detail is critical. Binoculars are excellent at giving the user a rich closeup picture of the world, but it comes at a cost. The moving parts of a binocular weaken it. And any misalignment of the optical barrels makes them near useless at best and completely useless at worst. But either barrel used in isolation of the other still has significant merit. So why not just skip the middleman and run one barrel. Thus the Vortex Solo 8×36 monocular. The monocular is like a small telescope meaning you have to close or cover one eye for best viewing. While open-eye viewing might work with 1x-3x scopes and red dots, at 8x keeping the second eye open causes you to struggle between which reality to follow. You cannot overlap the imagery in your brain because the magnification scales are much too different. Slow is Smooth and Smooth is Fast But the good news is that you can quickly focus a monocular without an additional individual adjustment. Adding to the focus speed is that the rotation of the focus ring from closest to farthest is about a quarter-turn. And if you are glassing targets beyond 20 yards, the focus range is about a tenth of a turn. The Solo has a minimum focus distance of about five yards which is a noted problem for close up work. The Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular , like most worthwhile optics these days, has an O-ring sealed housing that prevents water from entering, and keeps the fog-reducing nitrogen atmosphere inside the Solo inside the Solo. Related: Magpul MBUS Pro Offset Sights Review The only ornaments adorning the Vortex Solo 8×36 monocular are its belt clip, something Vortex calls a utility clip, and the embossed model name along with a lanyard (included) port 90 degrees counterclockwise from the belt clip. An extendable eyecup helps position the Solo for both naked eye use and viewing through glasses. A minor case is included with the Solo, but the case does not fully enclose the monocular. Also of note is that no lens covers are included, or in my opinion needed. The magnified image produced by the Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular is fine for general hunting, route finding, and homeland security. However it is not exceptional. But at $100, it is acceptable. The central field of view has a fairly sharp image with good contrast, but the peripheral area loses its crispness rapidly and the far edges are blurry. As an optics snob who usually carries Leica, Leupold Gold Ring, or Nikon Premier optics, this monocular is not something you would enjoy using hour after hour. But it is fast to use, rapid on target, quick to focus, and instantly provides an 8x view of the world that is plenty sharp enough to do your work or get on with your hunt. Choose One Vortex makes four choices of monoculars in combinations of 8x or 10x power and with 36mm or 25mm objective lenses. For me, the best combination is the 8x by 36mm. While a few more x of power might be nice, the real challenge is holding it still for effective viewing. And with a monocular there is much less to grab compared to a pair of binoculars. The 36mm objective provides the light-gathering needed for early morning and late evening. During a bright afternoon, even the smallest objective optics work well. It’s the edges of day where the larger objectives become critical. The Vortex Solo 8x36 monocular is a handy solution for short-term observation. The small size and speed of operation are its advantages over binoculars. And in the SHTF, advantages are what it’s all about.

Window Punch Review for 2020: Its Quieter than a Rock

The window punch is a simple piece of gear you can throw in your Bug Out Bag or Get Home Bag , but a lot of people will question the need of a window punch when you could obviously just use anything that was heavy enough. Quick Navigation Window Punch Review Quieter Than A Rock Finesse "Window Punch Review" Quieter Than A Rock The short answer: Because it’s quieter than a rock. I can imagine many situations where it would pay off to be quiet and unnoticed in a survival scenario, especially in an urban environment. Finesse Not only is it quieter than smashing a rock through a window, it could be used for a job that requires a little bit more finesse. Maybe there is someone in the car you are trying to get out and tossing a chunk of concrete through the window just isn’t safe. A window punch could be useful for any number of urban survival scenarios and I would put it in the “Why Not” category. Do you absolutely have to have it? No. Could it possibly come in very handy? Absolutely. It only weighs a few ounces and costs less than ten bucks, there will be one in my bug out bag. *Special Note: A window punch can be very dangerous, even when used correctly. Be extremely careful and try to wear gloves and long sleeves if you have to use one.
