One issue that may arise is that most common ammo isn’t designed to perform at subsonic levels. This means that even though your suppressor will help in containing the rapidly expanding gases […] Read More … The post Barnaul Ammunition Releases New Subsonic 9mm Ammo appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Any firearms-related recall is always unfortunate. Companies typically invest a significant amount of time, effort, and resources into their products’ research and development.

Restoring and Making an SBS From a Remington 870 Shotgun

Last fall, I wrote about my experience with the ATF Form 1 process to make a Short Barreled Shotgun (SBS).
