Remington 7615P

Although Remington is known mostly for their Model 700 rifle and Model 870 Shotgun, the 7615 is an interesting little pump-action rifle. It combines the feel and ergonomics of an 870 in a rifle chambered for .223 Remington that uses AR-15 mags. Marketed towards law enforcement, the goal was to provide a platform for officers who have an 870 and can transition easily to a rifle with the same feel and control. It does make most people wonder why any police department would pick a pump rifle over the much more adaptable and versatile AR-15. (GRH)

Look, when the fandom complained about the fact that Shadowhunters spoiled too much of the (few) Malec scenes we got in 2A, we were talking about SNEAK PEEKS. I am all for showing Malec in the promos, show they are important and relevant, just as much as Clary, Jace, Simon.

And how to not get pissed when:

Season 1, episode 5 - spoiled the only Malec scene
Season 1, episode 8 - spoiled the only Malec scene
Season 1, episode 12(also known as Malec) - spoiled pretty much all the scenes, more or less
Season 1, episode 13 - tho I get why it was used, they still spoiled the scene where the guys talked (not enough) about their relationship and where they will go from there
Season 2, episode 4 - spoiled the only Malec scene
Season 2, episode 5 - spoiled the only Malec scene
Season 2, episode 6 - spoiled half of their (long awaited) date
Season 2, episode 7 (“Malec mania” they said) - spoiled their longest scene(hours before the episode aired), what we got after that were a 25 seconds long scene and a rushed scene about their first time.

For the rest of the episodes (1x04, 1x06, 1x10, 1x11, 2x03, 2x08, 2x09, 2x10) they used the promos and promotional pictures in order to bait us.

So yeah, if they’ve been working hard on Malec, yes, they can throw a sneak peek here and there, twice per half season. If not, let me enjoy my 30 seconds of Malec when the show airs and don’t spoil 15 seconds of them.

I am all for using Malec for marketing, as long as we are not lied to and baited and they give them enough screen time to not spoil everything.

How's that sig nightmare running? I've never been too keen on sig 1911s since the GSR & reading the article about the sig nitron on ttag.

Ive been looking for an excuse to do a Sig write up. And that’s close enough. So here we go…

This is my first soiree into the Nightmare line, but I’ve owned Nitrons and shot a lot of GSRs and in my opinion they have been some of the nicest guns I have ever shot. I am not by any means a Sig quality control expert. I can only say from my own personal findings from the Sig 1911 and GSR line that I have had hands on experience with.

 Sig Sauer seems to know what they’re doing. I can say I had some issues from the Nitron not going all the way into battery while using junk ammo, but it was only once and also dirty while using a cheap after market mag. So I really can’t in all good conscience blame the gun.

 But they were consistently VERY accurate, fun to shoot, and I really don’t have much to say in the ways of negatives.

My initial impressions of the Nightmare are nothing but gleaming. I…LOVE this gun. And that’s from the mouth of a genuine certified gun snob. The fastback grips, tritium night sights, the sleek black and stainless design, the accuracy and all play perfectly into what I want out of my handgun. It just feels good. I’m a decent shot… not the best in the world, but still, even then It’s not hard to maintain a fist sized group at 25 yards. It is an inherently accurate gun. It hits what you point it at plain and simple.

Now, the negatives. Few and far between I can say that there are somethings I wish this gun did differently. Namely the price. Is this gun worth ~$1000? Honestly …its debatable. I shelled out the cash and don’t get me wrong, I’m glad I did…but at the same time… Everyone’s financial situation is different and even for me. This was a hard pill to swallow. It’s expensive and to play devil’s advocate I’ts difficult to justify a Nightmare when I can probably buy a Ruger for almost half the cost and pretty much accomplish the same thing. (A reliable accurate 1911 style handgun). With the Nightmare…you’re are paying a little (a lot) extra for the brand. No doubt about it. 

I do however believe that the Sig 1911 Nightmare is without a doubt one of the finest guns I have ever owned. Its sleek, beautiful and functional. It carries well, and even for someone who is usually pretty quick to bad mouth the 1911 as a carry weapon. I can’t help but like it. And while style counts for little in an actual gunfight. You can’t help but feel cool with one on your hip.

My overall down and dirty findings?
I couldn’t really find much genuine fault with this gun. Most of the gripes I have with it are problems inherent to the 1911 platform. (i.e. I wish I could have more than 8 rounds / it’s heavy steel frame) kinda stuff. No real issue with the performance or functionality of the firearm itself. Sig Sauer made a very nice 1911 here. And its a beautiful gun. For show or for shooting I feel like a proud elitist whenever I bust it out on the range. Its just a cool gun. However unless you have the cash to burn. I can say with a heavy heart that…No…you don’t NEED a Sig Nightmare. Its a great gun…but it’s just a high end 1911. It is not the be all end all of firearms. Its not the most practical choice out there and unless you can find one for under 700 dollars your money is probably best spent elsewhere. 

That said….its a really sexy gun.

I’ve decided to upgrade one of my tactical .22’s. I purchased the Smith & Wesson 15-22 when it first came out a few years ago & fell in love it.

Some of the first runs were plagued with ejection issues but was an easy fix with the ejector. Once I bent it inward for it to catch the lip of the casing it was flawless.

Shooting it with pin point accuracy from its Thompson Center Barrel.

It had many great features:

AR similar take-down(unlike the Umarex Colt branded rimfires).
Very accurate
Lightweight polymer upper & lower
Removable fixed AR styled sights
Full quad picatinny rail
25 round mag with after market mags available(up to 50 rounds)
Standard AR buffer tube and pistol grip

With the newer model that is starting to become easier to find now, comes with Magpul furniture.

MOE pistol grip, stock, flip-up sights, threaded barrel with flash suppressor, QD sling attachment points, and the option of FDE or black Magpul furniture.

Detailed pictures to come when it arrives!

Stay tuned!
