Excerpt from this Guide:
 
2012 - A Legend Celebrates 50th Anniversary
 
In 1962, Remington Arms introduced a bolt-action rifle that had an immediate and major impact on the shooting world. Advertised as, “the world’s strongest bolt-action,” the Model 700 ultimately earned its reputation for delivering out-of-the-box accuracy and rock-solid dependability. 
The 50th Anniversary rifle design is based on the original 1962 Model 700 BDL, a designation that was originally an acronym for B-Deluxe Grade. The classic look continues with a satin-finished “B” grade American walnut stock with right-handed cheek piece. Enhancing the classic look of the stock are cut fleur-de-lis style checkering, period-style white-line spacers on the black fore-end and pistol-grip caps, as well as a black-vented recoil pad. 
 
Further identifying the limited edition rifle for collectors and enthusiasts is a commemorative logo laser-engraved on the magazine floor plate.
 

The durable 24-inch carbon steel, magnum-contoured, rifle-sighted barrel features a satin-blued finish for a striking appearance. The Model 700 50th Anniversary rifle is chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. The cartridge was introduced in 1962 along with the Model 700. 

 

 
The renowned Remington “three-rings-of-steel” design (counterbored bolt encloses the cartridge head with an unbroken ring of steel; which then fits inside of the barrel chamber; and is surrounded by the receiver) provides ultra-reliable performance.
 
Founded in 1816 in upstate New York, Remington is one of our nation’s oldest continuously operating manufacturers. Remington is the only U.S. manufacturer of both firearms and ammunition products and one of the largest domestic producers of shotguns and rifles. The Company distributes its products throughout the U.S. and in over 55 foreign countries.

Brief history of the M16 / AR-15®

AR is an abbreviation for “Armalite Rifle”.

1959: Colt acquires manufacturing and marketing rights to the AR-10 and AR-15 from designer Eugene Stoner and Armalite. Eventually the AR-15 was adopted as the select-fire M16.

1962: Colt gets US Department of Defense order of 85,000 M16’s for Vietnam and 19,000 for the Air Force.

Mid 60’s: The M16A1 was updated with a new buffer to reduce the rate of fire, chrome plated chamber and barrel, closed prong flash hider, forward assist, new buttstock with cleaning kit, and a 30 round magazine. Rifles were also produced by GM and Harrington & Richardson during the Vietnam war as well as outside the USA.

1978: The M16A2 was produced using an increased barrel diameter, rifling was changed from 1:12 to 1:7 to accommodate a new 62 gr. bullet, modified rear sight, case deflector, new round handguard, and full-auto was replaced with three round burst.

1994:  The M4 was adopted based on a demand for a shorter lightweight weapon. The M4 has a 14.5” barrel and a four position telescoping stock. Collapsed length is under 30 inches. Now available in 3 shot burst or full-auto. M4’s are also equipped with a Picatinny-Weaver Rail System to replace the carry handle. Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 was passed.

2009:  The National Shooting Sports Foundation created the term “Modern Sporting Rifle” to introduce the AR-15 platform to the hunting market.

Right Now: The AR-15, AR-10, M16, M4 and MSR are still defending the FREE WORLD!

Brief history of the AK-47 Assault Rifle

It has been estimated that the worldwide production of the AK-47 rifle and its variants has exceed over 90 million. The AK has been licensed (and copied) in dozens of countries. Even after nearly 60 years, it is still the weapon of choice for soldiers, law enforcement, and the gun enthusiast.

Mikhail T. Kalashnikov, a Soviet Engineer, designed the weapon in the late 40’s and it was adopted by the Soviet Army in 1949 as the officially designated “7.62mm Automat Kalashnikova, obraztsa 1947 goda” (7.62mm Kalashnikov automatic rifle, model of 1947). The weapon went into service in 1951.

The AK-47 and AKM (AK Modified) fire a 7.62 x 39-mm (M1943) ammo which is a heavy caliber small arms round capable of defeating most body armor. The weapon is usually equipped with 30 round magazines and is available in a fixed wooden or folding stock (AKS). The AKM has a stamped receiver and entered into service in 1961. The AK-74 fires a 5.45 mm bullet and has replaced many of the 7.62 weapons. All models are gas operated with a rotating bolt feed system.

The semiautomatic version has a “practical” rate of fire of 40 rounds per minute. The AK has an “effective” range of about 300 meters. (328 yards). This is due to its bulky bullet traveling at only 2,300 feet per second. Average weight: 9.5 Pounds. Overall length is 34.2 inches. Folded length: 27.5 Inches.

Brief History of the SKS Semi-Automatic Rifle
(Samozaryadnyi Karabin Simonova)

The SKS Rifle chambered in caliber 7.62 x 39mm (SKS-45) was designed by Russian arms inventor Sergei Simonov and was adopted by the Soviet Union in 1946. Since then the SKS has been fabricated by several other countries including China (Type 56 / Norinco), East Germany (Karabiner-S), North Korea (Type 63), Albania, North Vietnam, Romania, and Yugoslavia (M59 & M59 /66).

The country of origin can be easily determined by markings on the receiver. Russian models usually have two Cyrillic characters followed by four numerals. The Soviet and East German weapons usually carry the year of manufacture and the serial number on the front left of the receiver. Chinese weapons have three Chinese symbols usually followed by seven or eight numbers. Later models have the spike bayonets. North Korean SKS’s have “63” stamped on the receiver cover. East German versions have a hole through the stock for attaching the lower end of the sling swivels. Yugoslav M59/66 are very easy to identify due to their prominent spigot-type grenade launcher permanently attached to the muzzle.

Excerpt from this Guide:

“In my opinion, the M1 Rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.” LGEN George S. Patton, Jr.  The U.S. rifle caliber .30, M1 is an air-cooled, gas-operated, clip-fed, semiautomatic shoulder weapon. This means that the air cools the barrel; the power to cock the rifle and chamber the succeeding round comes from the expanding gas of the round fired previously; it is loaded by inserting a metal clip (containing a maximum of eight rounds) into the receiver; and the rifle fires one round each time the trigger is pulled.

Weight: 9.5 pounds Length: (over-all) rifle only: 43.6 inches
Length of barrel: 24 inches
Type of mechanism: Gas operated, semi-automatic
Loading device: En-block clip
Sight radius: 27.9 inches at 100 yard range
Sights: Front: Fixed blade
Sights: Rear: Adjustable peep. One click of elevation or windage
moves the strike of the bullet 1 inch at 100 yards.
Trigger pull: Minimum 5 1/2 pounds - Maximum 7 1/2 pounds
Ammunition types: Ball, armor piercing, tracer, grenade
Muzzle velocity (M-2 ammunition) 2,800 feet/second
Maximum range: 3,200 meters (3,450 yards)
Maximum effective range: 500 yards.

Maximum effective range is the greatest distance at which a weapon my be expected to fire accurately to inflict casualties or damage. Maximum effective rate of fire 16 to 24 rounds per minute. Although there is no prescribed maximum rate of fire, a trained rifleman can fire 16 to 24 aimed rounds per minute.

Excerpt from this Ruger Guide:

The Mini-14
At first glance the Mini-14 looks very similar to a combination of a M1 Garand Rifle’s rotating bolt and the overall appearance of
the US Military M14. The M1 Garand (.30.-06 caliber) was adopted by the US Army in 1932 and was carried by most US troops until the 1950’s. The M14 (.308 caliber) was adopted by the US Army in 1957 and was later replaced by the current AR-15/M-16 rifle. (.223 / 5.65mm caliber).

Design and Series of the Mini-14

The Ruger Mini-14 was designed by Bill Ruger. Early versions from 1972 ~ 1975 were produced in Southport, Connecticut and have serial numbers with the three digit prefix of “180”.

The Ruger Mini-14 180 series have a few minor internal and external design changes that make it incompatible with most of the commercial and aftermarket accessories that are specifically made for the later 181 and 182 series rifles.

These early 180 series rifles are sought after by collectors.

Most “shooters” prefer the later models.

The Ruger Mini-14 series 181 was introduced in 1977 and offered an updated rear site, a larger gas piston, magazine release, and a modified bolt mechanism. In 1980 Ruger added a series 182 which introduced a new satin finish to the Mini-14. Early stainless steel receivers were recalled due to cracking because of excessive hardening of the metal during production. Recalled stainless guns had a serial number below 182-51929. Ruger Rifles that have been repaired have two proof marks. (“R” in circle.)

A brief history of the M1 Carbine
 

The US Carbine, Caliber .30, M1 served as a lightweight semi-automatic carbine for the US Military from July 1942 ~ the 1960’s. The M2 (selective fire and fully automatic) and the M3 (active infrared scope system) are not covered in this Guide. In 1941, the Ordnance Department requested that US firearm companies and designers compete to develop a smaller and handier weapon for service troops such as truck drivers, medics, and paratroopers. The new .30 M1 cartridge was designed for an effective range of 300 yards using a round-nose 110 grain bullet. Most agree that the effective combat range is about 200 yards.

Although Winchester was awarded the initial contract in September 1941, the Inland Division of General Motors turned out to be the largest producer of M1 Carbines. A total of over 6 million M1 Carbines were produced by several contractors such as IBM, Underwood Typewriter Company, and the Rock-Ola Jukebox Company. The most rare are the Irwin-Peterson models with just over 4,000 produced.

At first glance, the M1 Carbine appears to be smaller version of the US M1 Garand rifle. The M1 Carbine has a different gas system, trigger mechanism design, and is fed by a detachable magazine....

A Brief history of the Mosin-Nagant Rifle
1891:
Russian Sergei Mosin and Belgian Leon Nagant’s initial production of the Model 1891 at the factories in Izhevsk, Tula, and Sestroryetsk. Throughout WWI contracts were issued to Westinghouse and Remington for over 3 million M91s. During the Russian revolution these contracts were cancelled and rifles were sold to U.S. civilians.
 

1925 ~ 1927 The Finnish Civil Guard produced a M24 which is very similar to the Russian M91. The M27 and improved M28 were adopted with a 27” heavy barrel and were produced from 1927 ~ 1940. M28/30 & M39’s followed with improvements in the barrel bands and pistol grip type stocks. These rifles are very accurate and desired by all Mosin Nagant collectors.

1930: Introduction of the M91/30 with updates on the front sights, barrel bands and round receiver.

1938 ~ 1945 The M38 was adopted as a 40” carbine and was built at Izhevsk until 1945 and did not have a bayonet attached.

1942: The PU version of the M91/30 was adopted with a side rail scope mount.

By the end of WWII, approximately 17,475,000 Model 91/20’s were produced.

1943~1948: M44 carbine was adopted and incorporated a side-folding bayonet.
 

1950’s: M44’s are manufactured in Poland, Hungary, Romania, and China. These were designated as Type 53. Hungary and Romania also produced a limited number of M91/30s. Czechoslovakia shortened M91s and these are designated as M91/38s. They are recognizable by the early dates and hexagonal receivers. M91/30s were also cut down, probably by the Soviet Union and are known as M91/59s.

A brief history of the Model 1903 Springfield Rifles

The US Rifle Caliber .30 Model 1903, is an American clip-fed, 5-shot, bolt-action service rifle used primarily during the first half of the 20th century. It was adopted as a US Military Rifle on June 21, 1905.

After being on the receiving end of the Mauser Model 93 rifle during the Spanish-American War, the US War Department performed extensive studies to replace the US .30 Krag rifle. Even though Springfield Armory used a two-piece firing pin and other slight design alterations, the 1903 was in fact a Mauser design and this resulted in the U.S. government losing a law suit and was forced to pay $200,000 in royalties to Mauser Werke of Germany.

1905: By January, over 200,000 rifles produced.

WWI: 843,239 rifles produced by Springfield and Rock Island.

CAUTION: Due to inconsistent heat treatments, low numbered receivers (Springfield Armory below 800,000 and Rock Island Arsenal below 286,506) should NEVER be fired under any circumstances because of the risk of serious injury or death.

1903 Mark I: Toward the end of WWI. A cut in the left side of the receiver and stock were added to accommodate the Pederson Device (semi-auto .30 pistol caliber).

1930~1940: The M1903A2 is a stripped A1 or A3 used as a sub-
caliber rifle in artillery pieces.

1937: The 1903 Springfield is "officially" replaced by the M1 Garand.

1941: In September, Remington began production of the M1903 with serial number 3,000,000. Milled parts (marked with an "R") were replaced with stamped parts at about serial number 3,330,000.

WWII: The M1903A3 was introduced and can easily be identified by its receiver-mounted rear sight, stamped cartridge follower, and all stock furniture was redesigned in stamped metal. Smith-Corona began production of M1903A3 (no markings)

Model M1903A4 is a modified 1903A3 to be used as sniper rifle with telescopic sights. The rifle was sighted for 2,500 yards and had a point-blank range of 500 yards. The maximum range of the ball cartridge, when elevated at an angle of 45°, was 4,890 yards or 2.77 miles. The rifle could fire at a rate of 20 shots per minute. The 1903 adjustable rear sight was set for 546 yards. The 1903A3 rear sight was an aperture sight adjustable both for elevation and windage.

A Brief history of the Mauser K98k and M48

Based on the success of the Mauser Gewehr 98 long rifle (Gew 98), adopted by the German Army in 1898 and used throughout World War I, there was a demand for a shorter version that could be used by cavalry and stormtroop units. The Karabiner 98 Kurz (carbine 98 short) was developed in the 1930’s from the standard rifle-length Karabiner 98b and was adopted by Nazi Germany in 1935. This would become the standard rifle for the German army, navy, and airforce until the end of World War II commonly known as the K98k, Kar98, or Mauser 98k.

Over 14 million of these rifles were produced by various manufacturers. However, this number includes versions of the rifle other than the K98k, such as the Czech vz-24.

In 1900, Springfield Armory paid Mauser $200,000 to incorporate the action into the US 1903 Springfield.

From 1950 to 1965, Yugoslavia’s Zavodi Crvena Zastava factory (Red Banner Works) manufactured almost an exact clone of the 98k. The Model 1948, has a shorter bolt-action found on the Model 1924 Mauser rifles. The M48 was manufactured with all milled parts. The M48A has a stamped magazine floorplate and trigger guard. The M48B was made with additional stamped parts.

In 1953, the Spanish were manufacturing a slightly modified version, but with a straight bolt handle. CZ and FN also produced new K98k rifles after the war, many of which were assembled from leftover German parts.

With a little research you will quickly find that there are a few dozen other countries that have produced Mauser type rifles. Argentina, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, China, Iran, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Sweden, Turkey, and Venezuela have also benefited from Paul and Wilhelm’s Mauser’s inventive genius.

The Mauser 98 series rifle is the longest serving combat rifle in history.

Brief History of O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc.

Oscar Frederick Mossberg and his two sons, Iver and Harold, founded the company in 1919. To this day, it is the oldest family owned firearms manufacturer in America and is the largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world.

Their first firearm was a four barreled .22 handgun known as the “Brownie”. Currently Mossberg has over 100 design and utility patents and was the first to introduce Monte Carlo style stocks, molded trigger housings, spring-loaded quick release swivels, the first 3- 1/2” chambered 12 gauge shotgun, and the first firearm manufacturer to be ISO 9001 certified.

Early in its manufacturing history, Mossberg began to earn the reputation for building “more gun for the money”, producing quality, extremely dependable firearms at an affordable price.

The Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun was designed and marketed in 1962. The 500 series utilizes an aluminum receiver to reduce weight. The bolt assembly uses a steel bolt lock that engages a recess in the barrel extension for steel-on-steel lock up.

Since 1979, The Mossberg 500 is used by all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. When it comes to proving itself in the field, millions of satisfied customers can’t be wrong.

Model 1100

In 1967, the Remington Model 1100 forever changed the way American shooters viewed autoloading shotguns. It was the first autoloader to combine the repeat-shot versatility of early-century models with the sleek, modern lines and handling qualities of revered double barrels. It’s been a field-proven favorite ever since. Its superb balance, handling, durability and soft recoil from the gas operated action are the foundation of the Remington autoloading legacy. In 2004, Remington added a new 20-gauge model in the Classic Field design.

Model 11-87: RELIABILITY WITH 3 1/2 " CAPABILITY.

In 1987, Remington introduced the Model 11-87. The unmatched versatility of the Model 11-87 Super Magnum results from the unique metering system of its patented gas-operated action. With 2 3/4" field loads, an integral pressure relief valve remains closed, utilizing all of the shell’s pressure to operate the action. When heavier shells are used, the valve opens proportionately to release the unneeded pressure – retaining just the right amount to operate the action. This not only assures reliable handling of all shell sizes, but prevents excessive bolt velocity that could increase wear. Cumulative production total for the Remington 1100 and 11-87 exceeds 4.5 million.

Most components parts are identified using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Please refer to the diagram on pages 3 ~ 6.
Prior to disassembly, we recommend a thorough examination of the current position and relationship of each part and assembly.

The .22 Ruger Pistol - 1949 Instant Success

The Ruger .22 is the best selling .22 pistol in the world. Since its introduction in 1949, the Ruger .22 Standard Model pistol quietly took over the .22 pistol market. Its good looks, superior performance and very reasonable price tag gave it an instant advantage over long established brands on the market such as the High Standard or Colt Woodsman. America’s shooters found a .22 pistol that delivered solid value and outstanding performance for the money.

Ruger Mark I Standard Pistol circa 1949, with its “salt cod” box and Ruger cardboard carton, circa 1954-1960. Cost: $37.50

Since 1950, the demand for these Ruger pistols exceeded supply. Ruger enjoyed a back-order condition into the mid 1970’s.

The .22 Ruger Pistol - 1951

In 1951, The Mark I Target Pistol was introduced, with an adjustable rear sight and a 6 7/8” barrel. Cost: $57.50 During 1952~1953 Ruger produced a Mark I with a 5 1/4 tapered barrel. Due to lack of interest, this version was dropped from production. It remains one of the only Rugers ever discountinued as most have been replaced by design improvements. This short-lived model is sought after by most pistol collectors.

In 1955, Ruger made an aftermarket muzzle brake available, but it was discontinued. Ruger introduced the “Bull Barrel” in 1964. These 5 1/2 inch barrels have a front sight base attached by screws. In 1971, the black emblem was moved to the right grip panel. All Standard and Mark I pistols made in 1976 have barrels stamped with “Made in the 200th Year of American Liberty”.

All Ruger firearms since 1977 have the roll marking on the barrels that say: “ BEFORE USING GUN - READ WARNINGS IN INSTRUCTION MANUAL AVAILABLE FREE FROM STURM, RUGER, & COMPANY, INC., SOUTHPORT, CT., USA.”

A brief history of the M&P Series Pistols:

The Smith & Wesson® M&P (Military and Police) Pistol was introduced in the Summer of 2005. It is a polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breach semi-automatic pistol.

The M&P is a striker fired pistol. The jointed trigger system prevents the striker (firing pin) from discharging unless the trigger is fully depressed. When the slide enters the battery position, the striker engages the sear. As the trigger is pulled, a protrusion on the trigger bar engages and raises a safety plunger.

As the trigger bar moves rearward to its final position, it engages the sear and rotates the sear downward to fully “cock” and release the striker. The striker travels forward to contact and fire the cartridge.

When the pistol cycles, the striker spring is compressed to about 98% prior to the trigger being pulled. Smith & Wesson®. Many of the shooting sports organizations classify this as a Double Action Only pistol.

Unique to the M&P Pistol Series is a Sear Deactivation Lever. This allows the pistol to be disassembled without having to pull the trigger.

A brief history of the XD Series Pistols
 

The evolution of the XD Pistol began in Croatia in 1998 at IM Metal. The HS (Hrvatski Samokres - Croatian Pistol) 2000 was Croatia's first polymer frame pistol. IM had been manufacturing pistols for the Croatian military dating back to 1991 during it's civil war with Yugoslavia.

The HS 2000 was specifically designed as a military service pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum (9x19mm). The goal of the initial design was to create an easy to use foolproof pistol. To simplify its use, there are only three contols: slide release, magazine release button and disassembly lever.

At first glance, the HS 2000 is very similar to some Glock and Sig models, the frame contour is close to the Glock model 17. However, the "interior" of the HS 2000 is very different from the Glock series of pistols. The single action trigger has a falling sear that is directly engaged with the striker / firing pin so when you pull the trigger the sear slides down and disengages the firing pin.

Safety Features: The grip safety (as seen on Colt 1911 variants) must be depressed to allow the sear to disengage from the firing pin when the trigger and trigger safety are pulled. The trigger safety (lever) must be depressed together with trigger to fire the pistol. The HS incorporates an automatic firing pin block / drop safety which effectively blocks the firing pin /striker until the trigger is fully depressed. A cut out in the slide will only allow the trigger bar to disengage the sear from the firing pin only if the slide is fully forward in battery. The grip safety also locks the slide from being retracted, when reholstering the pistol. This ensures that the slide does not accidentally become pushed slightly out of battery.

In 2001, Springfield Armory, Inc. negotiated licensing rights to the US market, and changed the name to the XD-9 (X-treme Duty 9x19mm). Springfield Armory has since expanded the line to include models in .40 S&W and .45 ACP, three barrel lengths, and four finishes (black, bi-tone, olive drab frame, and the dark earth frame). The XD-45 and the XDM series have been awarded the title of Handgun of the Year from American Rifleman Magazine. In June 2010, Springfield introduced their XD(M) in .45 ACP and an XD(M) in .40 S&W with a 3.8" barrel, which weighs only 30 ounces.

The Glock Pistol

Excerpt from this Guide:

THE GLOCK “SAFE-ACTION” PISTOL

The following is a description of how the GLOCK “Safe-Action” trigger mechanism functions.

CAUTION: It is possible that a loaded round may still remain in the chamber when a loaded or empty magazine is being removed or inserted. Like most firearms, any round in the chamber will discharge by pulling the trigger with the Glock magazine inserted OR removed from the firearm.

Remove the magazine, cock the pistol, and CONFIRM with your eyes and finger that the chamber is empty and that there are no rounds present. The GLOCK pistol is actually considered half-cocked at this point. The firing pin has been slightly tensioned, the trigger is moved to its forward position, and the trigger safety protrudes from the trigger.

When you first pull the trigger back about 1/4 of an inch, the trigger bar slides behind the trigger ramp, the firing pin moves up, and the firing pin is tensioned. The Glock pistol is now on “FIRE / SAFETY OFF”.

When the Glock trigger is pulled back further, the trigger bar releases the connector which releases the firing pin and discharges the loaded ammo.

The recoil produced by the fired round forces the slide backwards.

At about the .012 position, the barrel is released from the slide and moves down over the locking block.

The Glock slide continues to move backward and the spent cartridge case is pulled out of the chamber by the extractor and tossed out towards the right by an ejector.

A ramp in the slide moves the connector and separates it from the trigger bar and lifts it off the trigger spring and toward the path of the firing pin face.

Next, the recoil spring forces the slide forward and the trigger bar slides on to the safety ramp near the firing pin - the firing pin safety returns back to its original position - a slight tension is placed on the firing pin - if present, the next round is stripped from the magazine and placed in the chamber - the barrel is locked into slide and the pistol is ready to fire.

Once the last round has been fired, slide will be held back in the open position by the slide stop level.
