ARTV Preview: Making Fiocchi Ammo, Springfield Armory Ronin And The German Jaeger Rifle

Most know about the Italian manufacturer Fiocchi Ammunition, but what many don't know is that it has a factory located in Ozark, Mo. In this latest episode episode of American Rifleman Television, we take you to that Fiocchi Ammunition plant, which makes both centerfire ammunition and shotshells. If you can’t find ammunition, it’s not Fiocchi’s fault.

The sharp-looking Springfield Armory Ronin made quite a splash with its two-tone appearance and accuracy potential. Springfield Armory now offers a version of this modern rendition of the classic M1911 design in a more potent chambering, the Ronin in 10 mm. It will be the focus of our test this week in "Rifleman Review."

The Springfield Armory Ronin 1911 in 10 mm.

One of the most important firearms of all time was the German Jaeger rifle. It was a short large-bore, flintlock, muzzle-loading rifle used by German hunters, and then eventually specialty military units. Jaeger rifles were brought to the new world, and eventually led to the creation of the classic American longrifle. They were also used by German mercenary troops during the American Revolution. Learn all about this revolutionary rifle on this week's "I Have This Old Gun" segment.

Review: Trijicon RMRcc

Ten years ago, it was rare to encounter a handgun with an optic mounted atop it, but today it is a far more common thing to see. Many semi-automatics now leave the factory with some sort of provision with which to mount a micro red-dot, and Trijicon’s RMR is one of the most prominent pistol-compatible optics on the market to be developed for use with these guns.
