Rem Oil is a general purpose cleaner / lubricant / protectant, sort of a Swiss Army Knife of lubes. It has a lot of solvent in it and the oil that remains is very light. It's excellent for removing...

The 94s made in the 20's used a bluing process on the receivers that caused them to fade over time. I have my grandfather's 94 made in 1926; the barrel and magazine still have excellent bluing, but...

Right conclusion, wrong reason. Package rifles are a bad deal because *in general* the scopes are cheap junk. You'd be better off just buying the rifle and a...

Within 100 yards a 44 Mag from a rifle is every bit as effective as a 30/30. Energy figures are fine, but they ignore bullet frontal area, which the 44 has in spades. However, a conventional 44 Mag...

OK, I see the distinction, but the gas that gets bled off sideways doesn't go out the muzzle, where it would push the rifle backwards. It's a design decision, by having the ports go straight out the...
