From German Sports Guns and American Tactical Imports, we are happy to bring you the GSG-1911. GSG has taken the time in modeling a great plinker after a truly iconic American firearm. This combines the look, feel, and safety features found on most 1911s, the little extras only found on higher-end models and the economical value of shooting .22 long rifle rounds. In fact, aside from the reduced recoil and the savings in ammo costs, you might actually forget you’re not shooting a .45acp 1911!
The pistol features a 5” barrel and only weighs 34.4oz with an empty 10-round magazine. Trigger pull is a smooth 4.2- 5.5lbs. Like a Kimber or a higher-end Springfield Armory 1911, the GSG-1911 has an ambidextrous hammer safety, high beavertail grip safety, a trigger reminiscent of Delta’s lightweight trigger, and checkered walnut grips. The rear sight is adjustable and the front sight height can be adjusted using either of the two included sights.
GSG has also gone above and beyond in providing everything you will need for the pistol (except ammo). Along with the gun itself, you get an instruction manual, cable lock, one 10-round magazine, two additional front sights, nylon cleaning brush, and all necessary hardware. Even better, 70-80% of the parts are interchangeable with standard 1911 parts so you can customize the look and feel to suit your needs!
It’s hard to go wrong with the GSG-1911 as an affordable trainer utilizing a time-proven design.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. […] But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. […]
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
For AR15 owners, odds are you’ve had this experience before: you’re plinking away with your rifle when suddenly you experience a jam, so you start running through the procedure to clear a failure. The problem is that you typically have to lower your rifle from your shoulder, breaking your shooting position, and then there’s the awkward arm crossing as you pull back on the charging handle with one hand and activate the bolt catch with the other. If this were a tactical situation, precious seconds would be wasted.
Enter Magpul’s Battery Assist Device (BAD™) Lever. Made of anodized aluminum and coming in every color (as long as it’s black), this oddly-shaped attachment is practically revolutionary for AR15 shooters. The lever clamps onto a standard AR15 bolt catch with a single screw then snakes down and under the side of your receiver. Once installed, the end of the lever is perfectly positioned to be manipulated using the index finger of your grip hand. Now should you experience a failure, you can maintain a proper grip on your rifle with access to the fire controls while clearing the problem. It’s incredibly easy to operate too. Merely push up on the lever to engage the bolt catch and push down to disengage.
Usable by both right-handed shooters and southpaws alike, Magpul includes everything needed for installation (including the wrench). The BAD™ Lever is priced at $28.45, ships for FREE (to the lower 48), and is easily one of the best (and least expensive!) upgrades you can make to your black rifle.

Here is a bunch of pictures from our most recent shipment of fine Swiss Surplus Rifles and Accessories.
I have been wanting to get some of our various types of .308/7.62×51 calibers down to the range and get some results on paper to post here on our blog. Yesterday was the day. We enlisted the help of our friend, Detective Tim Riggs who is a SWAT team Sniper Leader and Instructor for our local Police Department, to do the shooting and help keep this official.
(Tim is also on the board at http://www.americansnipers.org. If you are not familiar with this great organization please take the time to check them out. They are actively seeking help to best equip our active US Military Snipers who are in the line of fire overseas. Do your part to keep this Country great, and our Soldiers safe.)
All the groups below were fired from a Remington 700 SWS with a Leupold 3.5×10 rifle scope that was zeroed for Prvi Partizan Match 168grn Boat Tail Hollow Point ammunition. Target distance was 100 yards in 72 degree weather with zero wind.

Prvi Partizan PPU Match 168grn Hollow Point
Our item #AP308HP168 (buy here)
This is current production ammunition manufactured by Prvi Partizan in Serbia. It features a Match 168grn boat tail lead core copper jacketed hollow point bullet, Brass case, and non-corrosive boxer primer. Packaged 20rds to a box and 1,000rds (50 boxes) to a cardboard case.
So what did I buy? My POF .308 rifle LOVES the Radway, and it produces the best groups for me. But I shoot Prvi in my Bolt guns. Please take these results with a grain of salt. Certain gun/barrel combinations are going to perform differently with the same calibers you see above. With a different gun you could get a completely different set of targets. The best way for determining the best ammo for your rifle is to try a little of everything, and see what your rifle likes.
I appreciate your interest and business,
