A revolver chambered for the 350 Legend, the Model 350 X-Frame is a dream for both handgun hunters and those who live in straight-wall-only states. With a seven-round cylinder, this surprisingly soft shooter is field-ready right out of the box.
No surprise—the AR platform is the most popular rifle in the United States today. Its chamberings cover the gamut from .22 to .50 caliber. Eugene Stoner’s brainchild of 1957 supports an entire cottage industry of aftermarket accessories that range from cheap to opulent.
Every hunter should have a .22 LR handgun. You can shoot small game for the pot, rid the camp of pests and pass the midday doldrums plinking at makeshift targets. The new Smith & Wesson Victory semi-automatic is one of the best guns we've encountered for all these things.
The founder of Crimson Trace, Lew Danielson, has officially announced his retirement. Danielson—winner of our 2015 NRA Golden Bullseye Pioneer Award—co-founded Crimson Trace in the backroom of an Oregon machine shop in 1994. It eventually grew into one of the industry's more renowned companies, and recently sold to Smith & Wesson for $95 million.
“Heavy,” “handgun” and “.22 LR” aren’t words that are usually strung together. But it is that weight, along with other features of the Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory, that makes this semi-automatic pistol so great.
