Improving the Pump

Improving the Pump

Crusader is working on an upgrade package for the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500.  We have been filtering down all the options, getting to those bits that can actually be helpful and ignoring the rest. We’ve also looked at what internal improvements are the best.  We will be putting out the package details soon […]

5.56mm Terminal Balistics

5.56mm Terminal Balistics

Take a look at the photos in this link. But before you do… be warned, they are disturbing. Draw from them what conclusions you will.  Velocity, shock effect… they can be devastating.  I’ve seen this in hunting situations, and it was the conclusion that Roy Weatherby came to.  Velocity kills, and we can like it or […]

Uprising UK, coming in Print

Uprising UK, coming in Print

Uprising UK is going to be available in Print on Amazon.com within 5-7 business days. It’s available now here.

Anarchy

Anarchy

At the root, Anarchy means “Without a King”.  When you say the word Anarchy to most people, it conjures up images of mobs throwing rocks and molotov cocktails and raised fists.   That’s not Anarchy.  That’s Chaos.  Two are linked in popular culture, but the reality is that they are two different things. Anarchy doesn’t […]

Can’t leave well enough alone

Can’t leave well enough alone

The 870 Tactical got stripped… then Cerakoted Gun Metal Grey. The funny thing about this, was that I did it Saturday night… Sunday morning I woke up late.  So I jumped into the shower, threw on some clothes, ran out to the Crusader Coating Laboratory and grabbed the gun.  Inside, I just slapped all the parts together […]

ST-1 Treatment on an 870.

ST-1 Treatment on an 870.

My 870 Tactical is now sporting Crusader’s ST-1 Treatment.  We blasted Slipstream into the bolt mechanism, carrier and plate.  The action bars were carefully stoned, polished, and then oiled with Slipstream.  The results were dramatic. The Tactical now practically cycles its self like an assisted opening knife. It’s smoother than a Wingmaster or a BPS.

Uprising UK is now out for the Kindle

Uprising UK is now out for the Kindle

Uprising: UK.  My second “Winning the Zombie Apocalypse” book (in a series of four) is now available for the Amazon Kindle. I really like Uprising: UK.  I think it’s an improvement over the USA which felt more rushed.  I’ve already got it on my Kindle Reader on my Smart Phone.   No formatting errors this time! […]

Gun Show

Gun Show

Crusader business is going to be the priority… But I’m going to be on the prowl for a couple items: Glock, in 10mm. S&W 4″-5″, .44 mag. My Rock River is going up for sale… So Joe can build me a Crusader.  And maybe something else.  But I want a handgun I can hunt with.  […]

Slipstream Warning

Slipstream Warning

A warning to those that work with Combat Robots: Do not use Slipstream on the Robots.  Crusader Weaponry will not be responsible for the creation of Skynet or Decepticons. You have been warned.

A failure of oil or logic?

A failure of oil or logic?

Got this in the email tonight. From: Joe M. Date: Mon, Nov 14, 2011 at 10:00 PM Subject: I was afraid you’d say that The background is, I bought my XDm 9mm N.I.B. on September 1st of this year. I only used Slipstream on the slide rails. I’ve fired 660 absolutely flawless rounds through it and […]
