WHAT IS IT? In the January issue, Tom Beckstrand wrote a short article on Crimson Trace’s new red-dot sights and then another feature on Rock River Arms’ new ATH V2, which was shown on the cover. However, the Crimson Trace optic on the cover and in the Rock River feature was not discussed in his column. This seems like a missed opportunity to me. Doyle Hill Email The image of that optic was a teaser used ahead of the introduction of Crimson Trace’s new line of magnified optics. Great observation skills, Mr. Hill! That’s the new CTS-1100, which is a rugged, fixed 3.5X aluminum sight developed for modern rifles. It contains an illuminated, hybrid reticle meaning that there is a horseshoe that surrounds an arrow-tipped post with ballistic-drop compensating (BDC) stadia for quick,…

“STOCKS ON A HANDGUN mate the gun to the hand,” Jeff Cooper wrote in 1974. In those days, the most common material used to equip production guns was wood. These days, most handguns sold feature textured polymer frames that are engineered for less sentimental customers to streamline manufacturing and to increase margins. Handgun designs that require grip panels often appear with synthetics, while solid wood remains reserved for the select few. Wood grips can enhance a pistol’s desirability for some as they connect a shooter with a once-living soul. Now, it’s the trend to embrace interchangeable backstraps and grip panels that attempt to replace the tactile feedback long taken for granted with specially crafted wood-stocked models. As a college freshman, I joined several others as a member of the pistol club. At…

WEBLEY & SCOTT MK I Q: I submit for your perusal what one might determine to be the most robust military handgun of all time. Your thoughts and evaluation on such a formidable British firearm are of great interest to me. The markings read in all caps, “WEBLEY & SCOTT Ltd” over “PISTOL SELF-LOADING 455 MARK I N”, dated 1913. There is also a winged logo over “W & S”. It’s in superb condition and mechanically perfect. It would seem that if in the heat of battle, with your ammo running out, you might still be considered armed. I have never seen a pistol that I would rather be struck with less. Thanks for keeping in touch with the past. W.C. East Aurora, New York A: I not only keep in touch with…

CINEMIZED GYROJET “THE SILENCERS” (1966) To cash in on the early James Bond craze, Columbia Pictures decided to do a series of films based on the Matt Helm spy novels written by Donald Hamilton. Starring Dean Martin, the movies ended up having little in common with their original source, the hero being depicted more as a boozing womanizer than a hard-bitten agent. The first of the batch, “The Silencers” (1966), was a huge hit and set the tone for the next three to come. Viewed today, they are dated in all the worst ways. Still, the formula works on a certain level, which incorporated a gaggle of — in the vernacular of the time — “groovy chicks” that even outdoes Bond, as well as a good selection of interesting firearms. The gun we…

IF IT’S NOT A HASSLE, you’re more likely to make a handgun part of your everyday carry (EDC). Besides shoving a gun in your pants, which is unsafe and never something you should do, there’s nothing easier than putting your pistol in a clipless sleeve and wearing it inside the waistband (IWB) or in a pocket — regardless of belt. There’s a trend growing in this category, and we’ve found that it’s not a gimmic. Carrying a pistol in a sleeve is not a new concept, but during the last two years we’ve seen manufacturers engineer sticky ways to help seperate the holster sleeve from the handgun during the draw. Elite Survival Systems is one of those companies. They have developed a silicone-coated outer shell for its new Mainstay model that…
