As usual, Springfield Armory had their most-awesome M-1A rifles on display. Here are just two of them many, a Super Match (top) and an M-21 (below).
Uberti has these two Model 1893 .45 Long Colt rifles ready to go, and they were so smooth that I'd have bought one or the other on the spot if I could have.
Henry has these two beautiful big-bore lever guns out this year. The top one is chambered for .45-70 Government, and the lower one is a .45 Long Colt.
fantastic customer service policy that fixes anything on any Henry product, no questions asked.
Also competing in the big-bore lever gun field is Marlin, with these two 1893s, both chambered in .45-70 Government.
Oh, look what Remington has back, re-worked for 2016: It's that R-51 again.
I'm still pretty conservative on new stuff though. Come see me when you've got a design that's been thoroughly time-tested. And of course Remington's got a few of those, too.
On the large end of the spectrum, Barrett was here with their semi-auto .50BMG rifles, including this M-107A1 suppressed version.
Still too big? Well then maybe North American Arms has a derringer that's more your style.
Lots of quality optics were on display.
Speaking of suppressors, I got a chance to see Advanced Armaments Corporation's new 5.56 SD suppressor that's going to replace their M4-2000 can.
As for Aaron, I practically needed a crowbar to pry him away from the Walter display.
Three days of this stuff. I'm still buzzing like a little kid who got locked in a candy store for a long week-end.
