Marlin .22 Caliber Rifles

Posted on 24 October 2011 by David Allred

Marlin Firearms has a great selection of .22 caliber rifles ranging from lever action to  semi-automatic. I was impressed with the diversity of their .22 caliber rifles and have provided this list for easy reference.

The XT-22 and XT-22Y Series, much like the Model 60, come in many different finishes and styles. You can get it in brushed nickel, black, synthetic stock or camo. It’s available in .22 short, long or Long rifle as well as 17 HMR.

Marlin Firearms has  a great history and is probably number one in the world for .22 rifle sales. I’ve spoken to several people who absolutely love their Marlin rifles and wouldn’t consider buying any other brand. You can pick up a Model 60 at your local Walmart for around $160. Not a bad price for a great .22 rifle.

List of 50 Caliber Pistols

Posted on 03 October 2011 by David Allred

There’s not very many .50 caliber pistols being manufactured out there, and it’s a shame. So I did a bit of research and have listed the ones I could find below.

Government Industries 50 Caliber 1911Government Industries .50 Caliber 1911

The 50GI is a low pressure round that doesn’t give you a big concussion blast like high pressure rounds such as the 10mm does. This makes it more tactically sound in a firefight. The 50GI case was designed with a .45ACP case head size which allows for a barrel and magazine swap so either round can be used in the same pistol with only a barrel and mag swap. This further increases its versatility and value.

Smith & Wesson 50 Caliber RevolverSmith & Wesson .50 Caliber Revolver

This pistol comes with different barrel lengths. Personally, sometimes size does matter! But then again, if you have to conceal a pistol, you can enjoy the same quality 50 caliber pistol from Smith & Wesson but with a shorter barrel and different purpose.

Desert Eagle .50 Caliber PistolDesert Eagle .50 Caliber Pistol

The Desert Eagle was the first 50 caliber pistol I was able to fire. When I think of a .50 caliber pistol, the Desert Eagle is always the first one that comes to mind. On top of that, my choice is always semi-auto over revolver.

AMT Automag  .50 Caliber PistolAMT Automag IV .50 Caliber Pistol

I’m not so sure that AMT still manufactures this pistol, but there are some still out there on the market. It holds six rounds and would sell on the open market for around $800 US.

Grizzly Win Mag .50 CaliberGrizzly WinMag .50 Caliber Pistol

I know for a fact that the Grizzly WinMag is no longer in production and all models are sold out. However, it seems as though Grizzly still offers parts for it. Grizzly seems to be moving more towards their .50 caliber rifles in production.
