Sunday Gunday: Top 6 Guns to Own This New Year

It looks like 2018 is finally upon us.

What new guns are on your buy list?

Here's our list of the top 6 guns to own this year.

1. Remington 870 DM Shotgun

This brand-new shotgun uses a detachable magazine somewhat similar to the Saiga 12 Shotgun. The 870 DM is available in 6-round or 3-round capacities, and chambered in a 3-inch magnum. Reputed to be as dependable as the tube-fed, pump-action Model 870 shotguns we're all familiar with, these guns are going to sell quickly. Now, hopefully they'll offer an extended magazine in the future, too

2. Henry Arms Single-Shot Rifle

New on the market is this Henry single-shot rifle with a variety calibers and options to pick from. Choose this quality, hardened-brass-framed rifle in either .44 Magnum or .45-70 calibers. Choose the steel-framed version in .223, 243, .308, .44 Magnum or .45-70. Each rifle is drilled and tapped for scope mounting as well. With legendary Henry Arms quality, this rifle will surely become a treasured family heirloom. 

3. Henry Arms Single-Shot Shotgun

Well, Henry Arms has taken the classic single-barreled shotgun and turned it into a work of art. The single-shot shotgun is offered in a hardened-brass receiver or a steel receiver. Henry offers this firearm in 12, 20 and .410 gauges. Hand this beautiful shotgun to your child one day and he or she can hand it down to to the next generation. With Henry Arms, function and beauty go hand in hand.

4. Charter Arms .44 Special Classic Bulldog Revolver

The classic is back in this hard-hitting revolver. With 5 shots of .44 Special ammunition, it gets the job done. You have to love the classic lines along with wood grips and blued steel.

5. Ruger No. 1 Rifle in .450 Marlin

The strong, single-action Ruger No. 1 is now chambered in the mighty .450 Marlin cartridge.

6. Ruger 10/22 Takedown Rifle

This rifle is about as handy as takedown rifles get. Never lose the barrel or stock again when collapsing your rifle, as they attach together. Absolutely brilliant!
