Freedom Wall Cabinets Offer Rapid Access Storage

Freedom Cabinet Wall Safe concealment System RFID Biometric

Everyone should have a heavy-duty, thick-walled steel gunsafe for their firearms and valuables. Ideally this should weigh 400+ pounds and offer fire protection for the contents. However, a gun owner may also want more rapid access to defensive arms and security items, in a different part of the home. That is where the “hidden in plain sight” concept comes into play. Metal Art of Wisconsin has some unique wall-hanging products that provide hidden storage.

Freedom Cabinet Holds Long Arms and Pistols — RFID Access

The unique Freedom Cabinet, shown above, is a patriotic, wall-mounted Stars & Stripes Flag-themed concealment unit, offered in three sizes starting at $294.95. Available in Wood, Steel, or Carbon Fiber, each secure Freedom Cabinet features inlaid steel with optional RFID ($29.95) or Biometric ($49.95) locking systems. There is also the Decor series of Freedom Cabinets with simpler, single flip-up covers. CLICK HERE to view all the Decor Freedom Flip-Up Cabinets, ranging from $224.95 for small size (23″x12″) to $424.95 for large size (41″x22″), with 7 different graphic styles.

Saturday Movies: XL Press, Dies, Annealer, Scope Cam, Triggers

saturday movies gavin gear ultimate reloader f-class john micron dies bix'n andy trigger AMP annealer forster co-ax xl press

Today’s Saturday showcase features a variety of notable products. We start with the excellent new-generation Micron seating dies. These precision dies deliver very low run-out and very consistent base-to-ogive numbers. Next we highlight the superb Bix’n Andy triggers, both single-stage and 2-stage models. Then Ultimate Reloader reviews the Longshot Hawk Spotting scope camera. This is followed by a detailed video on the state-of-the-art, computer-controlled AMP Mark II DB annealer, an amazing product that can enhance accuracy while dramatically extending useful brass life. For ELR shooters and 50 BMG fans, we include a review of Forster’s Co-Ax XL press. And finally you’ll find a video showing Caldwell’s handy and affordable “Flash Bang” hit detector.

New Micron Seating Dies from Bullet Central

This F-Class John video covers the impressive Micron Precision Series eating dies, both the threaded version and the Arbor Press model. These are beautifully made with very precise seating depth adjustments. John starts by showing the full operation of the Micron Arbor Press Die. Then, at the 12:05 time-mark, John shows the Micron threaded die used in the impressive new Short Action Customs Nexus Press. John explains how to back off the dies to work towards your desired seating depth in stages. Use code MICRON15 at Bullet Central to save 15% on your Micron purchase.

Bix’n Andy Triggers — Single-Stage and 2-Stage


saturday movies f-class john bix'n andy trigger rimfire 2-stage

Bix’N Andy triggers are now widely used by top long-range, F-Class, and Palma competitors. These triggers are precise, easy to adjust and available for a wide range of actions. The availability of Bix’N Andy triggers is more important than ever before because Jewell triggers has halted production and it is now difficult to get spare parts for Jewell triggers. In this video, F-Class John shows the features of both single-stage Comp and 2-stage Comp triggers, with different trigger blades. At the 16-minute mark, John shows the triggers in use at the range on both benchrest and NRL22-style rimfire rifles. NOTE: For a limited time save $30 off order of $300 or more at BulletCentral.com with code FCJ30.

Longshot Hawk Spotting Scope Camera

The LongShot Hawk Spotting Scope Camera is a great accessory. Attached to the eyepiece of your spotting scope, it will send the “view” to a tablet or smartphone placed next to your rifle. With this system you can see the shot impact in normal firing position your cheek resting against the rifle. That is impractical with the cheaper phonescope systems attached to a spotting scopes. NOTE: Any device that you’ll use to connect to the HAWK (phone or tablet) will need to be Wi-Fi capable. The HAWK has built-in Wi-Fi and broadcasts an SSID to connect with your phone/tablet. It doesn’t need an internet connection to work — but it uses the wireless connection for streaming the video signal.

Annealing Made Perfect AMP Mark II DB

This detailed 9.7 minute review outlines the features of the latest AMP electronic annealing machine, the AMP Mark II DB. This uses a computer control to deliver precise annealing times and temperatures with a profile for your specific lot and brand of brass. One user praised this new AMP machine: “The touch screen is much more intuitive than the old one.” Another stated: “If you want to anneal the best way possible this is it. Does a torch work? Sure it does. The AMP does it far better and far more consistently.” A buyer confirmed this sophisticated new AMP is fast and efficient: “Just got one, a few days ago and it’s so easy to use. Without even trying, I easily anneal eight rounds per minute”.

Forster Co-Ax XL Press — Great Option for Very Large Cartridges

If you load very long cartridges, such as the .375 CheyTac, .416 Barrett, or 50 BMG, you will need a specialized press with more space inside the frame and enhanced vertical die travel. The relatively new Forster Co-Ax XL press, introduced at the 2023 SHOT Show, fills the bill. In this Ultimate Reloader video, Gavin Gear shows how to set up the XL press. Then he shows how to adapt the press to different die sizes. He finishes by sizing a 50 BMG case. Gavin notes that this press has beefy construction and ball bearings in the linkage plates. Like what you see? You can purchase this press direct from Forster for $1295.00.

Caldwell Flash Bang Device Shows Hits


caldwell flash bang target light harleywood

If you are shooting steel or reactive targets at long range, sometimes it is difficult to see the hit, particularly if you are shooting lighter-weight bullets or if the target hasn’t recently been painted. Caldwell has a solution — the battery-powered Flash-Bang. A bright-green strip light flashes on impact. The Flash-Bang unit attaches with adhesive to the rear of the target, extending to the left or right side. CLICK HERE for another Caldwell Flash Bang field test from the HarleyWood YouTube Channel.

New Stainless Howa 1500 Rifles with Multiple Stock Options

howa hunting rifle stainless ss barrel stock

If you are looking for a good, durable hunting rifle with an excellent trigger, consider the Howa 1500 rifle series. These boast a 1-MOA, three-round accuracy guarantee. Howa 1500 rifles come in a variety of action sizes and stock configurations. And now there are models with quality stainless barreled actions. The prices are quite affordable with MSRPs from $639.00 to $1,179.00.

Multiple stock options are offered with these new stainless models: Hogue Overmolded, HS Precision, Walnut Super Deluxe, and Walnut Hunter (see above). For the 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win calibers there is also a Hera H7 option. We think this rifle is a very good choice for a large game rifle in a magnum chambering such as 7mm PRC. For large game hunting work, we would consider a 7mm magnum with the HS Precision stock. If you want something more compact, a short action .308 Win would work.

Howa importer Legacy Sports Int’l will soon have these HOWA 1500 stainless models in inventory. HOWA fans can get these stainless rifles with three action sizes and a wide selection of chamberings and calibers:

Mini Action (16.5″ to 22″ barrels): .223 Rem, 6.5 Grendel, 7.62×39, 350 Legend
Short Action (22″ barrel): 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester
Long Action (24″ barrel): 6.5 PRC, 7mm Mag, 7mm PRC, .300 Win Mag

HOWA 1500 Stainless Rifle Features:

• Two Stage Match HACT Trigger
• Large One Piece Bolt With Pressure Vent Holes
• Integral Front Barrel Lug for solid bedding
• Lifetime Warranty
• Reliable M-16 Style Extractor / Ejector
• Stringent and Exacting Headspace Specs
• Tool-less Firing Pin Removal
• 3 Position Safety

NOTE: There are some older model Howa 1500s that have stainless steel barrels but a non-stainless steel gray-finish action (see below). The newer model rifles with thread-protector caps on the barrel muzzles (see top photo) have stainless barrels AND stainless steel actions.

Today is the last day of the 2024 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Dallas, Texas. The 153rd NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits has been running at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. The Exhibit Hall has been open all three days, showcasing over 14 acres of the latest guns and gear from leading gun industry manufacturers and vendors.

Here are some quick videos showcasing new (or recently-introduced) products on display at the 2024 NRA Exhibits. These four product videos are hosted by GunsAmerica Digest Editor True Pearce, who reviews new rifles and pistols, plus optics. Among the new firearms, Mr. Pearce was quite impressed with the Beretta BRX1 straight-pull rifle, which has a very smooth cycling action and a sub-2-pound trigger. This could be a game changer for hunters. True Pearce also liked Walther’s new WMP model rimfire pistol chambered in .22 WMR.

Vortex Introduces New Viper HD Scopes — Good for Hunters

vortex viper hd scope new 30mm hunting optics

Vortex has released new Viper HD scopes with three magnification levels: 2-10x42mm (two models), 3-15x44mm (three models), and 5-25x50mm (four models). Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) are $599.99 for the 2-10X, $699.99-$749.99 for the 3-15X, and $899.99-$999.99 for the 5-25X optics. Both FFP and SFP options are offered.

This Vortex Product Video (released on 5/9/2024) covers the new Viper HD Scopes. Vortex staffer Jimmy explains the features of the new Viper HD 2-10x42mm SFP, Viper HD 3-15x44mm SFP, and Viper HD 5-25x50mm SFP and FFP hunting riflescopes. These all have 30mm tubes.

Important features for these new Viper HD scopes are:

• HD OPTICAL SYSTEMS ensure superior light transmission and enhanced resolution

• ILLUMINATED RETICLES enhance accuracy and contrast at dawn and dusk

• DEAD-HOLD® BDC & TECHNICAL RETICLE options streamline wind and elevation adjustments

• CAPPED & EXPOSED LOCKING TURRET options safeguard against accidental changes and allow for rapid holdovers and adjustments

• REVSTOP® ZERO SYSTEM (exposed turret models) enables quick and reliable return to zero

The new Viper 2-10x44mm and 3-15x44mm scopes are primarily designed for game hunting. We expect the higher magnification (5-25X) models to be used by varminters and PRS/NRL competitors. The versatile higher magnification Viper HD 5-25×50 comes in four variants: two Second Focal Plane (SFP) models with $1,299.99 MSRP and MAP of $899.99 MAP (Minimum Advertised Price); and two First Focal Plane (FFP) models with $1,399.99 MSRP and $999.99 MAPO. These MAP prices represent a very good value for a quality 5-25x50mm optic with a superb warranty.

Scope Ring Cap with Built-In Picatinny Rail — Clever Innovation

American Defense Mfg AD-Delta Scope Mount Ring Cap Picatinny Rail rangefinder laser

Here’s a clever new product that will be appreciated by PRS/NRL shooters and some hunters. American Defense Manufacturing (ADM) has crafted a scope ring upper unit that includes a Picatinny rail on the top of the front ring. That allows you to mount various devices above your scope, such as a compact laser rangefinder. This is currently offered in a 34mm version, but will be offered in 30mm version “in a few weeks”. This unit only works with ADM scope mounts. However, Nightforce has a similar Rail Accessory Platform (RAP-i) that works with NF 30mm or 34mm rings. The innovative ADM ring cap unit, officially dubbed the AD-Delta Scope Mount Ring Cap-Picatinny Rail, costs $120.00.

American Defense Mfg AD-Delta Scope Mount Ring Cap Picatinny Rail rangefinder laser

American Defense Mfg AD-Delta Scope Mount Ring Cap Picatinny Rail rangefinder laserADM posts: “We are now offering alternate ring caps for the Delta Series Mounts featuring picatinny rails to accommodate the ever growing use of accessories and laser rangefinders on scoped carbines. The 5-Lug (Low-Red Dot) version can be used to mount a Red Dot or low profile laser sight. The 5-Lug (Low-Red Dot) version can be used to mount a Red Dot or low-profile laser sight. The 7-Lug (Tall-Laser Rangefinder) can be used for laser rangefinders such as the Vortex Impact 4000. The 7-Lug Version is currently available in 34mm, the 30mm version will be available in the near future. The ADM Ring Cap product includes 1 replacement ring cap and 4 mounting screws.”

NOTE: This ring cap WILL ONLY fit ADM Delta Series Mounts, it is NOT compatible with other manufacturers’ scope mounts. Also ADM cannot guarantee height compatibility with all optics as turret heights vary between different makes and models. Price is $120.00 for all versions.

New Howa 1500 Super Deluxe Rifles with Wood Stocks

howa turkish walnut 1500 super deluxe walnut rifle sale

We like Howa rifles. They have smooth-running actions, and very good 2-stage triggers. In addition, accuracy is typically better than with most sub-$1000 factory rifles. Howa says these new Howa 1500 Super Deluxe rifles should group sub-MOA for 3 shots.

Now there is a new Howa option for fans of walnut stocks. For 2024, Legacy Sports International is now selling Howa 1500 Super Deluxe Walnut-stocked rifles. Both Short and Long Action models are available in Blue or Stainless standard and magnum caliber options. These rifles have hammer-forged 22″ or 24″ barrels, and a life-time guarantee. For the price, as low as $799.00, these would be a very nice choice for a hunting rifle. Weight is 7.2 pounds for a standard action, before optics.

These Howa 1500 Super Deluxe offerings feature High Grade Turkish Walnut stocks with a laminate forend cap and grip cap. Prices are very affordable — MSRPs start at $799.00 for Blued and $859.00 for Stainless.

Burris Eliminator 6 Wins Ballistic’s “Best Hunting Optic”

shot show 2024 laser rangefinder optics eliminator 6 burris

The Burris Eliminator 6 Rangefinder scope has earned Ballistic Magazine’s award for “Best Hunting Optic”. Even at $3000.00 MSRP, this is a pretty amazing optic. It incorporates a laser rangefinder plus a set of environmental sensors. Plus it communicates, via BlueTooth, with the Burris Connect App which holds ballistics data for multiple loads. Basically, just range your target, and the Eliminator 6 does the rest — the digital DOPE card works with ­the scope’s illuminated X177 reticle to display the precise holdover aiming point for the ranged distance.

The Eliminator 6 impressed testers: “[We] had a chance to try out the Burris Eliminator at Athlon Outdoors’ Rendezvous event”, said Linas Cernauskas, Content Director. “The Eliminator made getting on target, every single time, so stupid easy. This is a true game changer scope for the shooting industry, hence why it won Ballistic’s Best Editors’ Select Awards for Hunting Optic. Congratulations Burris!”

“The Eliminator 6 is, indeed, a game-changer for western game hunters and anyone who demands fast and accurate firing solutions,” said Burris Mktg. Director, Jordan Egli.

NEW Burris Eliminator 6 Laser Rangefinder Riflescope

The new, compact 4-20x52mm Burris Eliminator 6 combines a powerful laser rangefinder with multiple environmental sensors. It has easy-to-use turret controls and sharp ED glass. Hunters who are familiar with the previous Burris Eliminators will instantly recognize the Eliminator 6 as “something different,” and they would be correct. It is smaller, and lighter, and it looks like a regular scope.

How does it work? Using the Eliminator 6, simply range your target, hold the illuminated aiming point on your target, and hold wind if necessary using the hold-off points in the reticle. You don’t have to carry around a separate Laser Rangefinder, or dial elevation with knobs.

shot show 2024 laser rangefinder optics eliminator 6 burris

See how the parallax and illumination adjustments are now conveniently located on a conventional turret-style knob that also contains the range activation and brightness button array.

Burris states that the “Eliminator 6 [has] the most comprehensive and advanced integrated technology ever delivered in a hunting riflescope.” Remarkably, this new Eliminator 6 includes multiple sensors, along with the laser rangefinder. The Eliminator 6 features a built-in thermometer, barometer, and inclinometer, and it automatically measures density altitude (which can also be manually selected). This allows the Eliminator 6 to provide extremely accurate ballistics solutions. The key features are:

• Integrated laser rangefinder capable of ranging out to 2,000 yards (reflective)
• BurrisConnect App compatible for quick programing and precise ballistics
• X177 Reticle with 177 1/5 MOA illuminated aiming points
• Angle Sensor informs ballistics calculator
• Built-In Environmental Sensors
• HUD with 11 data zones
• Shotcall Marker

To minimize chromatic aberration, Burris uses extra-low dispersion (ED) glass for the Eliminator 6. Other optical features include 4-20X magnification, +2.0 to -3.0 diopter adjustment range, and side focus/parallax adjustment from 25 yards to infinity. Parallax and illumination adjustments are located on a turret-style knob that also contains the range activation and brightness button array. Key features include:

Laser Ranging – 2000+ yards on reflective targets and 1400 yards on deer hide with a press of the ranging button.

Environmental Monitoring – Eliminator 6 has built-in thermometer, barometer, and inclinometer, plus density altitude measure.

Ballistic Compensation – Built on the BurrisConnect mobile App and uploaded to the scope, the Eliminator 6 combines ranging, environmental, and ballistic data to achieve the perfect shot.

Precise Aiming Solutions – The digital DOPE card works with ­the scope’s illuminated X177 reticle to display the precise holdover aiming point for the ranged distance.

Shot Call Marker – Available for display in the HUD is bullet velocity and bullet energy at the ranged distance. Embodying the “Hunt Responsibly” ethic, bullet velocity and bullet energy at the ranged distance allow the shooter to recognize when the shot distance may be too far and the velocity/energy too low to ensure an ethical kill.

Burris Eliminator 6 Laser Ranging Riflescope Specifications:

Magnification: 4-20X
Click Values: 1/8 MOA (windage and elevation)
Total Elevation Adjustment Range: 40 MOA
