2014 SHOT Show Videos on GunReports.com

Here are some of the 2104 SHOT Show videos added to the GunReports.com YouTube channel this week.

IWI Tavor TSB16 5.56 NATO, $1999

Gun Tests magazine did a one-gun Special Report on the Tavor TAR-21 Bullpup in the September 2013 issue. This hot new rifle in 5.56 NATO costs a pretty penny - around $2000 rollout in most places - but we see some reasons why it may be worth the money. Following are excerpts from that test, used with permission:

ArmaLite M15A4 Carbine No. 15A4CBA2K 5.56 NATO, $1031

Looking very much like the Rock River rifle, the ArmaLite had a hidden beauty in its superior accuracy. Despite a hefty 7.2-pound trigger, the rifle shot very well for us. For extended field use, we would like a better trigger, and of course less weight. This one worked perfectly, just like the other two.

Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced No. 96328 45 ACP, $940

We compared two 1911 handguns from companies not known for those pistols in the May 2012 issue. After a very long wait the staff acquired one of the Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced 45 ACPs ($940 MSRP). The GT team wanted a similar-priced gun to compare it to, so they went to another company not commonly known for producing 1911s, Taurus. The test Taurus PT 1911 ($900 MSRP) was stainless. Here is what we found.
