  1. TECHNIQUES AND STANDARDS FOR "FLUFFING AND BUFFING" FIREARMS

    New and even used firearms can often benefit from polishing key parts to improve smoother operation and reliability. Modern firearms are seldom as smooth as they could be due to the constraints of what the factory can do and still keep prices down. The owner can do quite a bit to improve a gun with a surprisingly small amount of work, but all too often people do it wrong or do too much and actually ruin a gun. So, here's a short general course on what to do and what not to do to improve a...

  3. The Kel Tec Foldable Bayonet

    You may know the wily engineer by the name of George Kellgren best for his series of polymer-framed handguns and revolutionary longarms, but did you know the he also designed a weapon that is a bit more basic? We give you, the Kel Tec folding bayonet. KTOG Member stymie's Kel-Tec RFB bull pup carbine (serial # 29!) with a KFB installed to complement the sweet ACOG.

  4. The GSG-41: Kel Tec shotgun that never was

    Back in the old days George Kellgren, the man behind Kel Tec and its precursor, Grendel Arms, had an idea for a bullpup-stocked shotgun that was just 26-inches long overall and had an innovative high-capacity magazine arrangement that held a dozen rounds. Think you know this gun as the KSG today? Well, about that... Enter the GSG-41 While you may know the KSG, there was a Kellgren-designed scattergun that predated it by no less than 17 years. Although Kel Tec was around in 1993, the gun...

    Before George Kelgren founded Kel Tec CNC in Cocoa, Florida in 1995, he ran a similar company Grendel Firearms, which had a short but interesting seven year run in nearby Rockledge. The Swedish wunderkind produced a number of designs that we see today in their more mature Kel Tec variants but one that (so far) has not been recast in a new image is the SRT, the only George Kelgren bolt-action rifle to make it into production. The Finnish connection First, you have to remember that Kelgren...
  6. Digital Camouflage painting the easy way (With SUB-2000)

    I have used this technique on several of my recent AR builds, and it is a uniquely simple method of achieving a digital camouflage look without all the trouble of using digital stencils. I use Aervoe mil spec camouflage spray paint. It is very durable once fully cured, and their colors are spot on. I have a new Sub2000 40SW that will be the subject of this article. The first step is determining your color pattern. I have completed an AR in both USMC dessert MARPAT, and one in ARMY ACU....
