Just Plain Cool Like all Kel-Tec designs, the CP33 pistol is unconventional in a good way. I can see Hollywood movie property houses buying them by the dozens. I expect to see them used in sci-fi space movies as laser blasters and dressed up with a 9mm suppressor (to add bulk) and a red dot sight as the weapon of choice for movie assassins. I can also see the CP33 as a fun plinker and on every new teenage shooter’s wish list. What I cannot see it doing is working in the role of target gun. With accuracy results of two- to three-inch groups at 25 yards, it will win no prizes. Even the subcompact Springfield Hellcat, reviewed in the same issue, beats it when the Hellcat’s 15-yard accuracy results are extrapolated…

WHEN AMERICA ENTERED WORLD WAR I, we had perhaps 30,000 1911 semiautos. We needed to arm every soldier for what was shaping up as a pistol war. Colt simply could not fill the need for 1911 handguns and neither could Remington UMC or other contractors. Smith & Wesson had production capacity geared up and simply rechambered its big-frame 1917 revolver for the .45 ACP cartridge—as did Colt with its New Service. While the Smith & Wesson and Colt are each big burly revolvers, the Smith is slightly smaller and, in my opinion, better balanced. Since the .45 automatic cartridge does not have a case rim, the rounds simply fell into the cylinder. After early testing, a properly chambering cylinder design was implemented, although the ejector star would not eject a rimless cartridge. Smith…

tipton power swabs

Ever use those cotton swabs you buy at the local drugstore to clean your guns? Not great, are they? The cotton unravels pretty quick, getting fuzz all over the parts you’re trying to clean. Tipton’s Power Swabs are tightly wound, and they don’t come apart. The ones I use all the time—the pointed tip version—come in a 300-count bag ($11) and are great for cleaning tiny, hard-to-get-at spots. The flexible bamboo handle is 3.5 inches long. They do break if you try to bend them too far, but for the most part they hold up really well. Recently, I tried the 9mm/.38 Power Swabs (175 count, $11). With a 7.5-inch bamboo handle, they’re great for a quick bore cleanup. Squirt a little bore cleaner on one, run it down the bore,…

intel report

SIG SAUER scored another military contract as the U.S. Marine Corps recently decided to adopt the M18, a compact version of the M17 pistol that was recently adopted by the U.S. Army. The M18 is a 9mm striker-fired gun based on the SIG P320. It features a coyote tan PVD finish on its stainless steel slide. It comes with SIGlite front night sights, a removable night sight rear plate and a manual safety. Between the M17 and the M18, once the Marines begin their acquisition this year, the SIG platforms will be in service with all the Armed Forces branches. While VERMONT Gov. Phil Scott vetoed a bill that would have introduced a handgun purchase waiting period, Green Mountain State gun owners aren’t out of the woods yet. Senate Democrats are…
