The Florida-based firm Diamondback Firearms announced the Sidekick Birdshead for 2023, a trim version of its nine-shot convertible revolver.
The brainchild of a competitive shooter and an engineer as a lightweight solution for Ruger's 10/22, the Luth-AR MCA-22 Chassis has several features geared for precision rimfire competition.
The Ruger 22/45 is a blending of two legendary repeaters, Browning's M1911 and Bill Ruger's Standard Auto, with modern features such as a Picatinny rail and barrel threading that makes for an incredibly fun plinker that happens to come chambered for a ubiquitous and fun- and easy-to-shoot cartridge: .22 LR.
Inconsistencies in rimfire ammunition brass are quite apparent, which is why competition and target shooters, dedicated varmint hunters and enthusiasts turn to a nuanced process to gain an extra edge in performance—batch-sorting rimfire ammunition.
