A platform designed to suit a wide variety of hunting environs, the Q300, from Millennium Treestands, is a Universal Blind Platform with a large and stable profile.
Thompson/Center is changing the way consumers think about bolt-action rifles with its new Dimension bolt-action platform. The Dimension features interchangeable barrels and other components that allow users to to change calibers—.204 Ruger to .300 Win. Mag.—while still maintaining Minute-of-Angle accuracy.
At its introduction, Ruger’s Mark IV .22 Long Rifle pistol was offered in two models and three SKUs. The Target model, available in black or stainless, is the all-business, utilitarian descendent of Bill Ruger’s Standard model rimfire. But for American Rifleman’s Joe Kurtenbach, it’s the Hunter model that truly captures the spirit of Ruger’s original, and capitalizes on the platform’s evolution.
Due to the size of the .300 Win. Mag. cartridge, pairing with an AR-15 or AR-10 receiver is impossible, so NEMO (New Evolution Military Ordnance) Arms took to the drawing board to create a rifle that houses qualities of the AR platform, and did so around a magnum cartridge that’s been a favorite among long-range shooters and hunters.
Success of the AR platform with the consumer market led to the birth of a cartridge that utilizes a .30-cal. bullet and is designed for use with AR-15-style rifles and pistols, the .300 Blackout. SIG Sauer, for one, has met the growing .30-cal. demand, developing a line of rifles dedicated to .300 Blackout. Meet the SIGM400 Predator.
The most distinctive feature of Mossberg’s latest series of 590 shotguns is a detachable box magazine. Using the 590 platform as a starting point, Mossberg, in conjunction with Adaptive Tactical, modified the 590 receiver to accept detachable box magazines holding five, 10, 15 or 20 rounds of 12-gauge ammunition.
