Weekly Update - 2016-10-06
First sad news - Cara is no longer with Precise Shooter. Unfortunately, she departed on a very short notice, so we did not have
time to hire a replacement (which is a very, very slow process in gun industry). As a result, in the next couple of
weeks we will be slower than usual. Please bear with us!
The AR-15 market is still quite hot, so receivers - especially the ones on the cheaper end, and for some reason, especially the
uppers - are still impossible to find.
By the way, I do not understand the shortages of upper receivers. These are not serialized parts, you can make your own, you can
buy them on the Internet - there is no way to ban or restrict them. Yet they seem to be even more rare than the lowers.
Luckily, I have a little program that pings Anderson and a few other places every few minutes to check if receivers are available.
Typically, it works like this - the program signal, I log in within just a minute or to, and discover that everything is already gone.
But a few times I got lucky, so we have a decent stock of uppers, lowers, and other essential parts.

Looking for a 1911? Armscor makes excellent quality workhorse guns which always elicited great reviews on the Internet.
I am a proud owner of quite a few - here is, for example, my review of their 1911 Match.
There are two guns you should be looking into in particular. First, the very regular GI model ($399.95 (in stock)).
It is a completely no frills, yet quality made 1911 approximately equivalent to US-made guns in $500-600 price region.
Second is model 51536 ($549.95 (in stock)). This is essentially the match version with a tactical serrations
on the slide - but the same sights, barrel, trigger, and so on. And it's over $100 cheaper!
If you like Walther PPK - and you should, because it is one of the world's most successful guns ever made - you will love Bersa Tunder 380.
Walther has been changing hands like crazy recently, and is currently owned by Umarex, a company better known for airguns. Consequently - and very
unfortunately - they let the PPK line wither.
The most recent implementation by S&W was utter garbage, and
even that was discontinued, so you want a PPK, right now your best option is pre-WWII original German manufacture - at $2k, and often qua bit more.
Or, you can by a Manurhin clone on Gunbroker - though the prices were recently going up. I used to be able to get a newish Manurhin in a box for under $500
only a year or two ago, and now we're looking at around $800.
Or you can buy a Bersa for under $300. Of the Walther clones manufactured in the last decade, this gun is the highest quality - definitely above and
beyond Smith & Wessons that sold for twice the price.
Speaking of Walther clones, if you don't have a P64 already, you should get one. My review is here, and by the way,
they are almost entirely gone from the distributors now.
We have them in two grades: good condition with two magazines ((currently unavailable)), and
"worn" with one magazine ((currently unavailable)). Internally both guns are the same - the
chrome lined bores are like new, and mechanically they are in top notch condition. But some were carried more than others.
Most "worn" guns come with holsters.
One problem with many P-64s (ones made in 1960s are better in this respect than the ones made in 1970s) is a super heavy double action.
Wolff makes replacement mainsprings that bring the double action back into reasonable. We are carrying them now.
Read this for instructions on how to replace the mainspring.
I wrote a couple of reviews about Canik pistols (Canik S-120 and Canik StingRay C) -
but I own nearly every CZ clone this company has produced. CZ is a super successful line, some of the most accurate pistols ever made, and these guns
are incredibly close copies - at a fraction of the price of the original.
Unfortunately, they are no longer imported. I've been buying remnants from the distributors as I could find them, but at this point I think the supply is
up: what I have in stock is it.
The guns are imported under Canik 55 and Tristar names. Look for T-, P-, and C- series below, TP- series is something else.
You should run, not walk and buy as many as you can afford - before it's too late.
There are a few Savage rifles we have in stock that you need to know about.
First, we've got 10P-SR ($589.95 (in stock)) with an 18" heavy threaded barrel. This is a police
sniper rifle, and a functional equivalent of 10TR with a slightly shorter barrel and without the scope rail. You can see our review of
10TR here. This is an absolutely fantastic deal for a super accurate rifle.
Second, 10DCP-SR ($589.95 (in stock)) with the digital camo stock. This is a law enforcement
series rifle with a 24" heavy barrel. Again, absolutely fantastic price.
Ruger LCP is a beautifully tiny 380ACP pistol which also happens to be incredibly affordable. Since Ruger dropped the prices on them (wholesale
went down to just below $200), they was incredible demand on them - but we managed to grab a large shipment recently, and we still have some.
