On the cover of the final June issue is the polymer-frame, striker-fired Ruger American pistol.

Constructed with modularity in mind, the American comes with three different backstraps to custom-fit to the shooter’s hand, ambidextrous controls and interchangeable grip modules. Currently available in 9 mm and .45 ACP, the American joins Ruger’s award-winning SR-series of polymer pistols—find out how the American compares.

The Daniel Defense DD5V1 brings two other American institutions together: the .308 Win. round and the AR-style platform. The company’s first foray into larger caliber AR-style rifle, the DD5V1 upsizes the features and upgrades that are expected from a rifle wearing the Daniel Defense name. With fixed iron sights, proprietary stock and pistol grip, KeyMod fore-end and full ambidextrous operation, there’s a lot to like in this 7.62 NATO powerhouse.

Can such a rifle (semi-automatic, AR-style) be considered a “Scout Rifle?” Col. Cooper set forth a list of requirements he considered essential for the Scout Rifle concept, but absent from the list was the rifle’s operation. While Scout rifles are generally bolt-action, Richard Mann asks if an AR-style rifles can qualify. Check out whether the DPMS GII passed the Scout Rifle test.

Fortunately, there won’t be any test at the conclusion of our special poster section. The quadrennial European soccer championship will take place this year, with 24 countries vying for the top spot. We have selected arms appropriate to each participating country, with a tongue-in-cheek narrative intended to educate and inform readers about Europe’s best guns and soccer stars.

Look for these articles and much more in the June issue of Shooting Illustrated, The Definitive Source for the Modern Shooter, at a newsstand near you. (one last time)
