Hi. I'm gearguide.
Today we take a look at the IASW Suppressed 22LR AR-15 from Innovative Arms. Small, light, inexpensive to shoot and very quiet, the IASW is a very quietly to practice skills or just backyard plink without alerting the neighbors. Heck, you wont even alert the guy standing next to you. Is it worth spending around $1,000 of your hard earned cash for a suppressed rimfire AR? Let’s take a look.
I have gone years resisting the urge to own an AR-15 chambered in .22LR. And honestly I feel like a hypocrite; I’ve preached the blessings of suppressed rimfire shooting for years and rarely have I ever mentioned owning an AR chambered in the only cartridge that is guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face. Purpose-built .22LR AR-15’s can feel like toys in comparison to their full-powered cousins, but that no reason to shrug them off as a firearm not worth your time. Until now, I have failed you by not highlighting a platform that is a joy to shoot, inexpensive and quiet.
The Innovative Arms IASW is available in two versions: a two stamp short barreled rifle and a 16.1″ rifle with a permanently attached suppressor tube and handguard. The IASW is built from a Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 base rifle with a barrel cut down to 4.5″. This barrel length is the magic number to keep most .22LR ammunition in subsonic velocities to achieve the maximum amount of noise reduction.
Although Innovative Arms calls the IASW an integrally suppressed firearm, purists will disagree since there is no porting of the barrel. I’d argue that since neither the NFA or non-NFA versions can be shot without their included suppressors, they are at least pseudo-integrally suppressed guns. I doubt that will turn off many potential customers.
With a base MSRP of about $500 for the S&W M&P15-22 and a quality rimfire silencer running about $350, the argument can be made that you can build a suppressed 22LR AR15 cheaper than buying a complete “integral” system. However, as is the case for suppressing most calibers, internal volume is king. And, depending on the model your chose, the Innovative Arms IASW has double or triple the volume of standard rimfire suppressors. The results are noticeable.
An added benefit to those who decide to go with the two stamp SBR and suppressor combo is the included 1/2×28 mount adapter that allows for the IASW can to be used on other rifle and pistol hosts. Again, since the 16.1″ model has a permanently attached suppressor tube, it is locked into one configuration for life.
Which brings up a good point: why doesn’t Innovative Arms offer a pistol version? If you flip open your trusty NFA guidebook (j/k there isn’t one) you’ll remember that U.S. firearms laws state that if a firearm begins its life as a rifle, it will always be considered a rifle, even if you swap out the stock for a brace. And since S&W doesn’t currently offer a pistol version of the M&P15-22, Innovative Arms is stuck building rifles in either NFA or non-NFA flavors. Note: The M&P15-22P pistol is unfortunately no longer in production.
So why not just buy or build a 10/22 or another semiautomatic rimfire rifle or pistol? For one, an AR-style rifle allows your to build skills and train with all the ergonomics and muscle memory of an actual AR-15. Without the recoil, noise levels and intimidation that can come with all of those evil black rifles. New, younger and slight-statured shooters can shoot the IASW for hours without the need for hearing protection or dealing with recoil. Repetition is the key to becoming a competent shooter. Obviously there are conversion kits that will allow you to build a rimfire AR-15 on an existing 5.56mm lower.
Back to the price. Yes, $1,100 to $1,300 is a lot of money to drop on a rimfire rifle. But if you consider the complete package it may be worth the extra investment to have a factory suppressed system.
As with most monocore silencers, the IASW is prone to a slight amount of first round pop (FRP). But I’d characterize the FRP as being barely noticeable under normal conditions.
The suppression levels of the IASW are excellent, ranked up their with the best thread-on rimfire suppressors on the market today. However, since I don’t own a short barreled semiautomatic rifle, my comparisons are relegated to pistol hosts. If you are looking for extreme quiet, you won’t be disappointed.
Available in a standard 16.25″ overall barrel/silencer length, or as an SBR. The SBR version is a two tax stamp firearm. This integral features a one piece billet core that is machined from 17-4ph stainless steel and are user serviceable. Each integral comes with a tool, however, you can also use any standard 3/8 drive wrench. No need to buy subsonic ammo to be stealth quiet, our unique design gives you subsonic velocities with standard and high velocity ammunition. Firearm model ,color, and furniture may vary. Specify with your dealer before ordering. Please be aware that the tube and handguard on the 16.25″ standard length 15-22 integral is permanently pinned and not removable.
While the initial investment for the Innovative Arms IASW is slightly higher than buying a standard rimfire AR platform and thread-on suppressor separately, the performance and size of this system is worth a hard look. Pulling the trigger on the IASW is a giggly-worthy experience. Suppressed rimfire is life.
Despite generations of advancement in the firearm world – going from cap and ball all the way up to electronically fired multi-barreled cannons, one type of firearm, in particular, has always held a special place in my heart – pump actions. There is just something very visceral about manually cycling a firearm that makes it all that much more satisfying to shoot – especially when doing some casual plinking.
Pump actions or “slide actions” have been around since the late 1800s with the first slide action patent being issued to a British man named Alexander Bain in 1854. The English gunmaker actually patented his design before the first-ever centerfire cartridge was even invented, however, Bain’s design never got past the patent and the first-ever pump action firearm can be attributed to American gunmaker Christopher Spencer and his Model 1882 shotgun.
With the invention of the 22LR cartridge just two years later it is only natural that inventing minds would consider bringing the two technologies together for hunting and pest control duty. In 1890 the world got its first taste of pump-action 22LR goodness – the Winchester Model 1890.
The Winchester Model 1890 can trace its heritage back to the rimfire version of the Model 1873 rifle. Although the Model 1873 in its various larger sized calibers was a massive commercial and military (The Gun that Won the West) success, the 22LR version of the rifle never quite sold so well and as a result, Winchester asked John Moses Browning to design a rifle to replace the not-so-successful rimfire 1873.The result of this request was the pump-action 22LR known as the Model 1890. The Model 1890 was capable of not only firing 22 Long Rifle but also 22 Short, 22 Long, and 22 Winchester Rimfire. The rifle was fed from a very generously sized 22-round tubular magazine that sat beneath the barrel as with most traditional pump actions. Thanks to the genius design by Browning, the pump action .22 LR Model 1890 went on to become the most successful repeating rimfire rifle ever made by Winchester with a whopping 849,000 rifles produced in three different configurations. In just 42 years, Winchester had completed almost every thinkable upgrade possible to the rifle including the addition of pistol gripped versions until Winchester replaced the Model 1890 with the Model 62 rifle in 1932.
The Winchester Repeating Arms company saw very little in the way of competition throughout the early 20th century with only one notable competitor in the rimfire pump action market cropping up from none other than John Moses Browning himself – the man who invented the Model 1890. John Browning produced his own pump-action rifle with the help of Belgium’s Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal resulting in the creation of the FN Browning Trombone. The Browning Trombone featured an 11-round tubular magazine, 24-inch round barrel, a semi-pistol gripped stock, and even an elevation adjustable rear sight. The dovetail of the rear sight could also be replaced with a mount for a scope adding to its versatility. The Trombone was never nearly as successful as the Model 1890 as customers found that many of the wood components of the rifle were susceptible to cracking and easily worn out. Naturally, not many of the rifles made their way back to the United States with only a handful to have reportedly returned with United States service members and a few private importers.
Recently, the Henry Repeating Arms company revived its 22LR Pump Action Octagon rifle. Henry has been doing a lot of the groundwork with reviving many traditional firearms with modern technology. Luckily pump action 22LR rifles were on that list of things to revive. The resurrected Henry Pump Action Octagon 22LR features an Octagonal 19-3/4″ barrel, blued steel receiver and hardware, and a snappy looking American walnut stock and pump action grip. The rifle features a brass bead front sight and a semi-buckhorn rear sight which give it a more traditional appearance and the sights are replaceable by the end-user if they feel the need to add a scope or other sights. Although it’s not quite the 22-round tube of the Model 1890, the Octagon rifle can hold 15-rounds of 22LR and even more 22 Short giving it an adequate magazine capacity.
New production Henry pump action 22LR rifles can be had for less than $500 and there are even 22WMR versions available for those looking for a bit more of a sting to put on their targets. Personally, I think one of these would be great for on the farm or in the back of the truck. With a wide variety of ammunition out there, you won’t have to worry about cycling issues with a pump-action giving it a bit of an edge over semi-auto 22LR rifles.
I think there is a lot to be said for some older designs, in particular, pump actions. Although we’ve progressed significantly in the realm of firearms technology and development, there should always be a good amount of respect given to the predecessors that paved the way for our modern guns. Manually operated firearms are fast becoming my favorite plinking guns just for the pure joy of operating a real piece of machinery.
What are your opinions on pump action 22LR rifles? If you own one, what drove you do buy it and how does it perform compared to your more modern semi-auto and bolt action rimfire rifles?

Zero Tolerance, which is a sister company to Kershaw, has released their 0393 GLCF knife. This knife has a 3.5″ “Spanto” harpoon style, CPM-20CV steel blade with a stonewashed finish. The handle has glow in the dark inlays within the carbon fibers. This is a fun bonus that can be helpful in a variety of situations, and it looks really cool! There is a“hard-use working finish” on the blade and frame that is scratch and scrape resistant. And the pocket clip is reversible for right or left hand carry.
The exterior coating on the blade and frame is called a “hard-use working finish”. I'd have to agree on that, as anything short of a gouge doesn't seem to faze the stone-ground finish. This is seriously scratch and scrape resistant.

Of course, long-distance hunters and precision shooters have this same basic need, but require more from their rangefinders.

The ESEE PR4 Camping Knife has a 8.90” Black Oxide blade. It also comes with a nice brown leather sheath that has a loop for attachment to a belt.
The fast answer to that is that it has held up exceptionally well. I’m not a hardcore survival knife guy and I don’t see a point in battoning my firewood when I have plenty of axes handy. Granted, there are some guys that really see this as necessary, so I tested it out. It worked well, but I feel that it is a last-resort sort of thing when better options aren’t immediately available. This was about the only test I put it through that felt unnecessary to me.

Before the advent of LEDs, we had a choice of Coleman white gas lanterns, propane lanterns, oil/kerosene lamps and battery lanterns with incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. Coleman and propane lanterns were the brightest and most popular, but the mantles tended to break if you bumped the lantern too hard, or it fell over, and the fuel was very flammable. Their combustion byproducts were deadly; they could only be used safely where there was good ventilation. These were their major short-comings.

Some outdoor items are legendary, aren’t they? For instance the 30-30. Even though it is probably the worst deer hunting round in the world second only to the .30 cal. M1 Carbine who in their right mind is going to publicly diss the 30-30? Not me! It’s kinda the same with the Bowie knife. So the other day when Puma sent me their Puma SGB Bowie Commando Stag knife to check out I suddenly remembered that I’d never written an article on the Bowie knife.

To check out their top 10, visit the link below.

New from Buck Knives, The Mr. Crappie line is perfect to bring on your fishing trip to get your catches cleaned and cut up. The first model, the Folding Slab Shaver, Comes in either a 4 or 6 inch blade and is great for filleting and removing rib cages. The other model is non-folding and comes in either a 4 or 6.5 inch blade and is also excellent for filleting and the removal of rib cages.
Before I discovered what the 4-inch knife was for I tried to fillet some crappie with dismal results. But, by chance I threw it in the truck when Katy and I ran up the mountains the other day for a camping trip. We caught some little Brook trout and were going to clean them for dinner. I remembered that I had the 4-inch Mr. Crappie Shaver and whipped it out. It worked great for cleaning trout since you just pull out the guts, cut off the head and fry them. And also, since they’re thinner than crappie it works for filleting trout.

Genesis Arms' Gen-12 AR-10 Shotgun Upper allows you to turn your AR-10 into a 12 Gauge!
While the prospects of a 12-gauge AR are exciting, it's certainly far from mainstream. In the past it was believed that the AR-10 platform was difficult enough to make reliable in its original .308 caliber. Modern makers like Stag with its 10S and DoubleStar with its 10B have changed that. With optimism, I slapped the Gen-12 on my DoubleStar lower and before anything else wanted to know does it work?
The COAST HP3R Rechargeable Penlight is the most powerful penlight on the market right now. Putting out 245 Lumens on the high setting, it's brighter than a lot of regular flashlights. You can either use AAA batteries or the included rechargeable battery.
This penlight has a high and a low setting. The high setting puts out the 245 lumens indicated above with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. The low setting converts this penlight into a regular inspection unit with a 26-lumen output, but with a 6-hour runtime. Both of the runtimes are very impressive for the lumen output.
As cool as the newest, biggest, and best things can be- sometimes minimalism and classics are what is really needed. The Alan Folts COLUMBIA RIVER Bowie Knife is just that! Neck Knives often aren't as practical because they don't fold up, but in some situations, you won't have time to unfold your pocket knife. These are emergency situations of course, but, having a holstered Bowie is really the way to go whenever there's a chance of running into a predicament. Even for everyday use, this is a great, reliable, and versatile knife that will cut into whatever you need it to.
A good neck knife is one of the best insurance policies you can buy. The reason being…. if you get into a tough situation, you may not be able to reach your belt knife or open up a folder…. but a neck knife is within easy reach and readily deployed.

Silicon Rings are all the rage right now. Whether just as an accessory or when you're tying the knot- the benefits to these are endless. To start, they're Heat Resistant for up to 500 degrees, Hypoallergenic and won't absorb bacteria, Stretchable yet doesn't wear out over time, Non-Conductive (No chance of electrocution), and they're a fraction of the cost of normal rings. They are absolutely ideal for anyone who does any sort of outdoor or athletic activites.
There are several reasons why men and women alike are switching to a silicone ring. Golfers benefit from them by not having their grip affected by the bulkiness of a metal ring. Boaters and anglers no longer carry the risk of losing their metal wedding ring from their hands getting wet. Exercise enthusiasts will benefit from not having to remove their ring to lift any weights or grabbing any type of exercise equipment.

Shooting Benches aren't necessary, but having one can really help you step up your game. There's just something about having the steady surface to zero in and make sure your sights are all good to go. The Muddy Shooting Bench is a great option to purchase if you's rather not hand build a bench.
I would recommend setting up a range somewhere with known distances (at least 100 yards) and a steady bench. You can learn so much about your shooting skills and your rifle if you shoot from a solid, steady bench. You’ll also want a good backstop to shoot into for safety purposes.
Caldwell has come out with the Matrix Rifle & Handgun Shooting Rest. Still Plenty solid at 5 pounds, this is a great cost effective alternative to traditional bulky 20 lb gun rests.

It is a wise move for Sport/Clay shooters to have a good variety of Chokes on hand. Trulock has you covered with their wide selection of quality chokes.
Sporting clays and 5-stand are set up to simulate hunting situations. Flushing a pair in close requires a much different choke than a high, overhead passing target. A target crossing left to right at 45 yards will frustrate any shooter not prepared for a fast, intermediate target. Shooting patterns from 20 to 70 yards will quickly show any serious shotgunner how to optimize their sporting clay game for various target presentations.

This KOA knives of Alaska Legacy #knife has a total blade length of 3.25 inches, a perfect smaller knife to bring on a hunt for skinning or what have you. This knife has a very nice stag antler handle and comes with a quality leather sheath.
As is customary for KOA, it is made out of D2 steel. Mine came with a very steep angle on the edge, I’m going to guess somewhere around 18 degrees. Which is fine with me because I favor my edge somewhere around that angle.
