When it is about fitting the scope on a rifle, single rings are more and more replaced by one-piece scope mounts. Available either with quick release locking or with traditional hex screws, Torx or Allen types, they are appreciated particularly for the easy and quick installation, and furthermore they are designed with optimal sizes and heights regarding the placement of the scope on the rifle. Even though there are some mounts exactly designed to be attached on some specific type of weapon, the Picatinny rail has become the standard interface for all of them.

ZMF FORGING – MADE IN ITALY FORGED RECEIVERS FOR AR15

The coupling of AR15 with its aluminum receivers obtained from forging, are known to be an original American-made product.

In over half a century from their first production, only few industries in the world were able to face and win the technical and economic challenge of providing quality AR15 components made by forging process. One of these companies is located in Italy. 

Back in time, when the first AR15 (Armalite model 15) was fabricated, not many countries had the necessary technical and metallurgic know-how to produce such components.  Continue reading “ZMF FORGING – MADE IN ITALY FORGED RECEIVERS FOR AR15”

A bit of history

Even if with a certain delay, the Czechoslovak Army, felt the need to adopt a new ammunition of intermediate power, that could be used in a new semi automatic weapon, abandoning the obsolete Mauser VZ-24 in 7,92×57 mm. From 1952 the study on a new 7,5 x 45 mm ammunition and a weapon that could fire it, started in the early 40s, received new interest and drive, In 1947 two new prototypes were designed: a carbine, that later become the VZ-52, and the ZB-530 assault rifle. The design was finalised only in 1952 and the weapon was finally adopted. The Carbine was manufactured in two arsenals: Povaska Bystrica, factory stamp “SHE” from 1952 to 1956, and Uhersky Brod, factory stamp “AYM”, from 1952 to 1957.

Some information about the company

The Company ”Vodoo Tactical”; manufacturer of tactical accessories and outdoor, was founded in Gardena (California) in 2006.
During the Years,the company managed to carve a ”slice” of the market in the USA between the military and security,especially the ”Law Enforcement”. But the company is also famous mostly in the civil market.
Nowdays,the Catalogue includes: Rifles and pistols Bags, backpacks, pouches, shooting mats, shoes, hats, glasses,vests and so on.
Recently the company expanded the catalog by proposing some accessories for weapons, knives and Outdoor in general. Essentially a real ”Heaven ” for any kind of Shooter or Hunter!


The Vodoo Tactical devoted the entire production for Tactical and Military purposes.All the ”Weapons Cases” and ”Back Pack” had accessories such like holsters, magazines pockets and MOLLE System (
Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment).
These products were available only in Camo colors, OD green, Black and FDE.
Over a year ago,Vodoo Tactical has expanded its catalogue with a new line of products called ”Discreet”, which is applied perfectly for the ”Urban Tactical” use and, as always, dedicated to those who don’t want to renounce to a design ”hard” and ”aggressive” but,at the same time, prefer to keep a ”Low Profile” while using this product, especially when guns are carried in a purely “civil” background.
Personally, as owner of a ”Soft Rifle Case” for four years and a couple of ”Utility Pouch”, I am very pleased to use and carry them when i go to the shooting range! Continue reading “Voodoo Tactical”

Checkering the 1911 Frontstrap

Many hobbyist gunsmiths consider performing their own checkering of the front straps of their pistols.  To have this professionally done, which many times includes refinishing the frame, can be very expensive.  The expense is understandable due to the needed skills and the time required to complete this task.  Also, many pistol smiths dislike checkering because they consider the process to be too time consuming and, frankly, rather boring.  This is high on their list of gunsmithing tasks they would rather not do.
