Happy New Year everyone, it’s the last day of the year and here is our final article for the year as well.
Today we’re looking at the Forge from Bushnell, our model is the 4.5-27×50 optic with the Deploy MIL reticle in the First Focal Plane (FFP). Coming in with an IPX7 Water Proof rating and weight roughly 29 ounces, the Forge sits at the top of the trio launched in 2018 which also include the Prime and Nitro, for features and price points.
Setting the Forge ahead of the pack, at least the model we’re looking at today, is the FFP reticle, enhanced throw lever aka “Throwhammer” as well as RevLimiter zero stop and T-Lok turrets. An EXO barrier also coats the glass to help with rain and fog, as well as debris and smudges. Read more »
The FlashPup from Hatsan is available in .177, .22 and .25 calibers. Our Flashpup in this review is in .25 caliber but other than pellet size the rifles are otherwise identical. The smaller calibers will have a greater magazine capacity and get more shots per tank of air. All three variants use the same 165cc air cylinders.
We cover everything from accuracy to loading the magazines and refilling the air tanks as we introduce PCP Air Rifles to the channel for the first time.
After 3 months of testing on several different rifles, including an air rifle, the results are in for the Riton RT-S Mod 5 GEN2 6-24X50IR-FFP Scope. We also talk about the RT-M 30mm/1IN Precision QD scope mount as well.
With the new release this week and flashsale hitting Friday 9-28-18 we wanted to give a first look at the S1R Baton II while it was fresh from the factory.
The sale, which runs for 24 hours is 25% off 1 or 30% off 2 and if you spend over $99 you get a free H05 light. Free shipping is included with anything over $49 as well. If you are coming across this after the flash sale you can use code “olight10” and get 10% off any time. Read more »
Video games continue to strive for authenticity and realistic firearms and recently PUBG made push to bring one of the most modern adaptations of the AR-15 / AK-47 to their game. The Mk47 Mutant, from CMMG, is an AR variant with many similar components to the AR15 that is chambered in 7.62×39 and also takes standard AK47 magazines.
We have several videos up on the Mutant so please feel free to go back through our videos and articles here at www.13Cgunreviews.com check them out, we won’t rehash most of that here. Read more »
A look at the Geissele SSP (Single Stage Precision) Trigger and announcement of the Give Away starting right now, with the drawing being held on November 13th 2018.
On a recent ‘Fridays with 13C’ Instagram live stream I was talking about installing a Geissele SSP trigger into our Freedom Nitride carbine from Palmetto State Armory . During the stream Geissele joined and offered to donate one to give away to our subscribers, I’d like to say right now how thankful and grateful I am to Geissele for their generosity.
The SSP itself is a fantastic single stage trigger with a weight of 3.5 pounds. Read more »
When I was choosing the 510C, I almost went with my old standby, a red dot. I’m glad I went with the green instead.
A few years back a couple of companies attempted green dots for a second time and they did a decent job if you were only using them on a square range and under ideal lighting conditions. The ones I tried fared poorly in bright sunlight or on very bright backgrounds. If you were shooting in the snow? Forget about it.
Holosun has been working on several new technologies and one of those is their current green dot.
I honestly can’t speak highly enough about it. It’s crisp and clear, something I can have issue due to a slight astigmatism, and can get very, very bright.
If you tried green dots 5~ years ago and were turned off, you really need to give them another look IMO.
