Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine Box to Match Review!

Our friend Patrick E. Kelley is back with another Out of the Box and to the Match Review. In this review series, Patrick takes a brand new gun, gives it a quick clean and oil, and then shoots a match with it. No tweaking, no aftermarket parts, just a stock firearm that anyone can buy.

And, of course, have more than a few guns in the inventory as a result. Continue reading
