I got a copy of that magazine a couple weeks back at Walmart. It is a pretty good read. What is ironic is that Guns & Ammo magazine shut down its "Surplus Firearms" magazine a few months ago. They published that from 1987 to 2012. The reason they gave for shutting down was that there is not enough "new" material coming along and they said their authors were tired of writing about the same old stuff. Thanks to the new guys for stepping up.

I too got a copy at Wallyworld, great read. It has not left the bathroom. It was quite sad to see Surplus Firearms go. There is much interest in Mil Surplus by true shooters. CMP is always busy and just try to find .30 carbine ammo. Good addition to those of us who cannot get enough of this.

I read the mag cover to cover. It did address the old familiar C & R rifles mostly and did a good job providing basic info, but not much more than the basics. I will reserve judgment for the time being and see what they provide in follow up editions.

The two rifles they forgot was the Lee Enfield and Arisaka. Kinda disappointed me but still loved it

i agree with the guys who bought this magazine, decent articles on firearms us guys enjoy. it looks like a good replacement for surplus firearms. i don't know how often they'll publish, but i figure they'll cover all our favorites in time.
