Hey guys, two things real quick:
First, thanks to Mike (not Mike Wood) and Mike (Mike Wood), I’m turning comments back on for new articles for the foreseeable future. With everyone stuck at home I want to put this platform back in place.
Second, I’m trying to churn out 5-6 articles/week over at Swift/Silent/Deadly, also because folks are stuck at home, looking for stuff to do. If you’re looking for something to read, there’s a lot of new stuff over there. I’m also trying to teach some stuff over there. I would post it here, but most of it’s not revolver-related, but all of it is interesting!
Since publishing my last article on Zeta6 products I have been in touch with Zeta6’s owner, Michael Lyle. Michael is a unique guy in that he is always willing to accept input on his products. Today I’m going to look at his extensively modified J-Strip, the SYM-Strip, and a product yet to be seen in these pages: the Zeta6 K-PAK. Continue reading “The Zeta6 K-PAK and J-STRIP Update”
I have been accused by some of you of ignoring the New York Reload. Honestly, this criticism is totally fair. I haven’t written about it and I don’t think about it very much. However, this is a technique that should be addressed. If you know me, you know I’ll address the good, the bad, and the ugly of everything, including the New York Reload, so let’s get started. Continue reading “A Critical Look at the New York Reload”
Long before I began my reviews (Part I, Part II) of the Henry .357 Magnum Carbine, a frequent reader here sent me a photo of his Wiley Clapp GP100 and levergun combo. I was as intrigued by his choice of accessories as I was the guns; the rifle had a beautiful leather butt-cuff with eight loaded cartridge loops. That led me to Diamond D Custom Leather of Wasilla, AK. Continue reading “Diamond D Custom Leather Butt Cuff & Sling”
As you guys know, I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple of months working with the Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine. This gun is heavily advertised as a hunting rifle, but I couldn’t overlook the self/home/farm-defense potential of this handy little carbine. Today I want to share just a few thoughts about using the Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine as a self-defense tool. I’m going to meander over some general lever-gun stuff, as well as some specifics of the Henry. If you’re interested in my full review of the carbine itself, you can check it out here. Continue reading “Henry Carbine Part II: Defensive Use”
A while back a reader reached out to me asking if I was aware of RIMZ moon clips. I wasn’t, so I reached out to Denny Bennett, the proprietor. Denny set me up with a few editorial samples of his RIMZ EZ moon clips. I must say, I’m quite impressed. Continue reading “RIMZ EZ Moon Clips”
It has been quite some time since I have reviewed a speedloader. To be honest, I thought we had covered just about everything on the market. When I released my comparison article What is the Best Revolver Speedloader, a reader alerted me one that I had missed: the Revision CV Ammo Pod.

This review is a little out of the ordinary for us, and marks the first long-gun ever reviewed here at RevolverGuy. Though it ain’t a revolver, I can think of no better companion piece for a revolver than a like-chambered, lever-action rifle. Today we’re going to look at Henry’s Big Boy Steel Carbine in .357 Magnum. In my opinion this is one of the most interesting lever-actions out there. Continue reading “RG PCC: Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine .357 Magnum”
I’m sure some of you have noted the inability to comment on articles. It was with mixed emotions that I decided to permanently close RevolverGuy’s comments. There are two primary reasons for this, and I’ll attempt to explain them here. Continue reading “Comments Permanently Closed”
It’s nice to occasionally be reminded that life can still pleasantly surprise you. When I went to my FFL to pick up a couple of T&E revolvers, I had no idea there were not one but two revolvers from S&W waiting for me. I was also surprised at how studiously my girlfriend observed the three stainless wheelguns on the counter, and how before I even began filling out the 4473 she asked, “can I shoot this one?” Finally, I’m most surprised at how much I just like the S&W 648-2, even though it doesn’t fill any “need” I have, real or imagined.
