Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- The February issue of Shooting Illustrated, on newsstands now, provides detail on the accurate and affordable BPR-17 from Bergara.
Known for its world-class barrels, the company has started offering complete rifles to the shooting public, and the BPR-17 represents its first tactical venture. With a precision chassis, fully adjustable stock, five-round Accuracy International magazine and Timney trigger, the BPR-17 is a serious contender for your long-range needs.
If a carbine is more your style for a longarm, but you’re unsure whether you’d prefer an AR-15 or an AK-47, Faxon Firearms has a compromise in the ARAK-21. Using design elements from both types of rifle, the ARAK-21 is compatible with AR-15-style upper and lower receivers, but uses a bolt far more similar to the AK. Changing calibers is as simple as swapping out the barrel, and the carbine is about as friendly to left-handed shooters as possible.
Speaking of interesting rifle designs, placing a longarm’s action behind the trigger group isn’t a new thing, but we are seeing resurgence in bullpups these days. Jonathan Owen takes an in-depth look at the bullpup, detailing the explosion in popularity of the platform, including bolt-action rifles, shotguns, semi-automatics, bullpup-only events and new accessories specifically designed for this growing segment of guns.
The bullpup’s shorter length leads to greater maneuverability indoors, and if you find yourself training on an indoor range in the winter months, some changes may need to be made to your routine. Chris Christian has suggestions for maximizing your practice time in the smaller, enclosed space and greater limitations of an indoor shooting range. Make the most of your indoor training with these tips and drills.
