Many buyers are looking for value, but with this like new condition handgun, there's an issue. 

A few highlights/advantages to this Ruger are that you can change the rubber grip, it is a striker fire with no hammer that has a manual 1911 type of thumb safety giving it an advantage to be able to carry it in different ways, and holds 10 - 45 ACP rounds.

In the video you will see two different shots at the range. You will see the magazine fall out of the gun!

If this gun were working properly, the point of the used gun rating would be high, in good standing.

This specific piece will be sent to Ruger so they can inspect and fix the problem. 

We will do a follow up episode in a few weeks with the results. 

Stay tuned!

Since 1959 the venerable AR-7 has been the choice of U.S. Air Force pilots who need a small-caliber rifle they can count on should they have to punch out over a remote area. Through the years the AR-7’s reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world. Today it’s a favorite of bush pilots, backpackers and backcountry adventurers who, like their Air Force counterparts, need a rifle that’s easy to carry yet has the accuracy to reliably take down small game.

Like the original Henry U.S. Survival Rifle, this innovative, semi-automatic model is lightweight (3.5 lbs.) and highly portable. At just 16.5″ long, when all the components are stowed, it easily fits into the cargo area of a plane, boat or in a backpack. It’s chambered in .22 LR so you can carry a large quantity of ammunition without adding much weight to your gear.

When disassembled the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, water resistant stock. Assembly is as easy as attaching the receiver to the stock, inserting the barrel, and screwing on the nut. In a few seconds, without any tools, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is ready for action. It comes standard with a sturdy steel barrel covered in tough ABS plastic with a protective coating for complete corrosion resistance. It’s engineered for perfect balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy, even after thousands of rounds.

The receiver has a protective coating that provides superior weatherproofing and waterproof protection, even in harsh saltwater environments. The updated receiver is grooved, making it easy to top off with your favorite optics.

The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is available in two finishes; Black and Mossy Oak Break-Up Camo Pattern.  All models are equipped with an adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight.

This Episode Bruce and Birdman chat about the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and honor those who served by talking about a very special weapon know as the M1 Carbine.

This is the first full Video Episode of the Get on Target @ The Hub Podcast that you can check out on YouTube.

https://youtu.be/wMCk1-1Wcm0

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The M1 carbine (formally the United States Carbine, Caliber .30, M1) is a lightweight, easy to use,[2] .30 caliber semi-automatic carbine that was a standard firearm for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War and well into the Vietnam War. The M1 carbine was produced in several variants and was widely used by not only the U.S. military, but by military, paramilitary and police forces around the world. It has also been a popular civilian firearm.

The M2 carbine is the selective-fire version of the M1 carbine capable of firing in both semi-automatic and full-automatic. The M3 carbine was an M2 carbine with an active infrared scope system.[3]

Despite its name and similar appearance, the M1 carbine is not a shorter version of the M1 Garand rifle. It is a completely different firearm and it fires a different type of ammunition. It was simply called a carbine because it is smaller and lighter than the Garand.

On July 1, 1925, the U.S. Army began using the current naming system where the "M" is the designation for Model and the "number" represents the sequential development of equipment and weapons.[4] Therefore, the "M1 rifle" was the first rifle developed under this system. The "M1 carbine" was the first carbine developed under this system. The "M2 carbine" was the second carbine developed under the system, etc.

This Episode Bruce and Birdman chat about the Glock 34 a gun specifically designed for target shooting.

Obtaining the greatest accuracy for target shooting was the main reason for the development of the GLOCK 34 which has an extended barrel, greater slide dimensions, and unmatched reliability in a 9x19mm pistol. This highly accurate pistol has found widespread use as a competitive pistol for USPSA, IDPA, IPSC, GSSF and other sport shooting organizations.

Another Point of The Used Gun - Don't miss out on these in-store gems.

 

The Marlin 30-30 (officially known as the Marlin 336), is perhaps the second most popular lever action rifle in history, trailing only the Winchester 1894 (which was also chambered in .30-30 Winchester).

There is a good reason why the Marlin 30-30 is so popular: it is a reasonably priced, utilitarian, powerful, accurate, and easy-to-use rifle. These qualities have helped make the Marlin 336 one of the most prolific hunting rifles in the United States. As a result, countless deer, elk, bear, and feral hogs have fallen to the Marlin 30-30 over the years.

As a deer hunter, especially one hunting in a thickly wooded area where long range shots are unlikely, you could do a whole lot worse than choosing a Marlin 30-30 as your primary hunting rifle.

 

The Marlin 30-30 was born in 1948 when Marlin introduced the Marlin 336 rifle. The lever action Marlin 336 is a direct descendant of the Marlin Model 1893 and Marlin Model 36 rifles and shares many common characteristics with them. However, one thing that sets the Marlin 336 apart from most other lever action rifles is the fact that it ejects from the side of the receiver instead of the top.

Over the years the Marlin 336 has been offered in a wide variety of calibers, including .219 Zipper, .32 Special, .44 Magnum, and .410 bore. However, the Marlin 336 is currently being produced only in .30-30 Winchester and .35 Remington. The rifle is currently produced with either a 20-inch or 24-inch barrel and has a full-length tubular magazine that can hold six cartridges.

The Marlin 336 comes standard with open sights and there are several types of peep or ghost ring sights available to use with it. However, because the Marlin 336 ejects spent cartridges from the side of the receiver and has a flat top, many hunters choose to mount a scope on the rifle.

Realizing this, Marlin builds the rifle with a reversible hammer spur to aid with the use of a scope.

Lever action rifles are often lightweight, easy to carry, and quick-pointing. Weighing in at only seven pounds, the Marlin 336 is no different. Though the .30-30 Winchester and .35 Remington are not great performers at long range, they really come into their own at short to moderate range.

These characteristics make the Marlin 336 a great “woods gun” for hunters who need to take a fast, short-range shot on a big game animal.

It’s tough to determine with certainty which particular cartridge has killed the most deer in the United States over the years. However, it’s a good bet that the .30-30 Winchester is in the top three (if it isn’t number one).

Since the Marlin 336 is one of the most popular rifles chambered in .30-30, it follows that the Marlin 30-30 is one of the most commonly used deer rifles of all time in the United States with untold numbers of deer falling to it over the years.

The great news is that a hunter armed with the Marlin 336 isn’t limited to just hunting deer. The .30-30 Winchester and .35 Remington are both great cartridges for hunting a wide variety of North American big game animals.

At reasonable ranges, there is no problem using the Marlin 336 on feral hogs, black bear, elk, or even moose (especially when using the .35 Remington).

The Marlin 336 is also a very accurate and quite durable rifle. There are plenty of old model 336s out there (like the one in the photo that was produced in 1949) that are still being used successfully by hunters each year.

As long as it is properly cared for, the Marlin 336 is certainly a rifle that will give you and your grandchildren many good years of service.

Bruce and Birdman talk about a combo of guns (Rifle and Handgun) that use the same ammo. This can make things easier when out shooting and when shopping for ammo as well.

Several listeners have asked us to talk about these type of combos and how they can affordably get both.

We show here a couple guns from the Used area at The Hub, which has plenty to choose from. And of course you might find these guns elsewhere as well.
