Two Stage Trigger Benefits

In Blog by Rich4 Comments

Today we’re going to talk a bit about two stage trigger benefits. For those a little unfamiliar with the concept a two stage trigger has a stop built into it where a single stage trigger does not. If you begin to pull a one stage trigger to the rear it will move until it eventually fires in one stage of trigger movement. With a two stage trigger when you begin to press rearward you encounter a stop, known as the break wall. Additional pressure is required to move the trigger rearward past the stop or breakwall to fire the weapon. The concept for this article is why it is advantageous to know exactly where you are in the trigger pull and precisely when the rifle will fire! Let’s get started talking about two stage trigger benefits!

QD Mounts on Precision Rifles – Just Say NO!

In Blog by Rich6 Comments

I see the question of QD mounts on precision rifles come up in discussions time and time again. Just say NO! I know that sounds harsh but after you finish reading this article I think you’ll understand. My goal was to get out to the range and work on a few other topics this week but I’ve got a pretty bad head cold and it’s sucking my will to live. Since I was on the computer and saw this argument come up again I figured I would make it the topic of this week’s article. Some of it may sound harsh or controversial but that’s what good articles and ensuing discussions are all about! I won’t be offended if you disagree in the comments, promise!

Bushnell DMR2 – Impressions

In Blog by Rich4 Comments

I had a chance to look over one of the new Bushnell DMR2 scopes when I visited Mile High Shooting this week. I don’t own one and certainly can’t speak to things like it’s durability or tracking but I did get to have a look at it and see what kind of impressions I could form. If you make a few assumptions about the scope you can start to see a somewhat clear picture of what to expect. For example, the Bushnell DMR2 had several predecessors. The Bushnell DMR, ERS, and XRS scopes. Those three scopes are wildly popular in the precision shooting world. They can be had for around $1500 down from the $2000 or so retail prices they command. They all track well, have decent glass, and have spent a lot of time in Military, Law Enforcement, and Competition scenarios. The durability of those scopes is established, consistent, and backed by Bushnell’s “No Questions Asked, Lifetime Warranty.” The question becomes whether the new DMR2 will live up to what came before it. Read on to see what I thought after some brief hands on time!
