The Full-Auto Fiasco Affair

The firearm that came to be associated with the '60s T.V. show "Man From U.N.C.L.E." proved to be a challenge to make both from a mechanical, as well as a legal standpoint.

The U.N.C.L.E. Special Affair

Amidst the drove of "Man From U.N.C.L.E. fans out there, some are even producing the components required to build a functional firearm that looks and feels like the famous prop.

The Friend From U.N.C.L.E. Affair

Having the proper firearm and the correct parts will merely get you a replica of the U.N.C.L.E. Special. Thankfully, in the process of scrounging for parts I met someone who not only helped me source the parts, he helped me figure out how to make everything function properly.

The Finicky Spring Affair

Having an aesthetically correct U.N.C.L.E. Special is one thing, if it is incapable of reliably sending rounds downrange each time the trigger is pulled—well, then you're left a cool-looking paperweight.

The Bob Or Not To Bob Affair

From its grip to its barrel, the U.N.C.L.E. Special's components are well documented—all except one.

The S.B.R. Affair

Brad has asked for a detailed explanation of the Short-Barreled-Rifle registration process and how it's done in relation to registering an U.N.C.L.E. carbine.

The Back to the Drawing Board Affair

It appears I'm going to need to postpone accuracy testing of my U.N.C.L.E. carbine (i.e., "The Acid Test Affair") due to unresolved technical problems: Unfortunately, it's exhibiting some failure to feed issues.

Accuracy International AE MKII

Accuracy International's distinctive-looking bolt guns are known to tactical shooters around the world as accurate and extremely well-made precision rifles, but AI once had the less-flattering reputation of being slow or altogether absent in the customer-service department.

Walther SP22 M1

The first thing to get your attention when you look at the Walther SP22 M1 will likely be the cocking levers on each side of the forward part of the slide/barrel housing. The housing will be the second thing that piques your interest.

Walther PPS

To me, the Walther PPS looks like something from a James Bond movie. It's thin and compact, black and covert with a utilitarian, mean appearance.
