Employee of the Month

Stopped by my local Merchant of Death (Coal Creek Armory) to see if they had any deals on any death dealing gizmos and to grab a mag pouch. They had this up on their wall (sorry for the poor quality, it was taken with the Blackberry):

From Political

And Coal Creek had a few AR 57 uppers in stock and only two AR-15s on the wall.

    I think the election of someone on record as being so anti-gun did more to boost the economy than all those rebate checks ever did.

  2. Linoge Says:

    Out of a morbid sense of curiosity (since I doubt I can actually afford one), do you recall how much they were asking for the AR57 uppers?

  3. JJR Says:

    Now THAT’s LOL funny…thanks for posting!

  4. SayUncle Says:

    linoge, $730 IIRC

    What is an AR57?

    I missed the Memo on that one.

  6. Linoge Says:


    Almost worth it, that. If 5.7 ammunition was not closely related to unicorn horn…

    They are honest.

    5.7 ammo is still around 0.50 to 0.60 a round, I think the boxes we have are about the same price as .45acp.

    We’ve sold a LOT of FN’s new wunderkind, so it behooves us to stay up in stock on 5.7 ammo.

    Another gun I don’t get…but still a neat little design from what I read.

    Still spendy underpowered ammo that can’t easily be reloaded (A friend who tried found that the non-tapered case walls are aided in extraction by some factory coating, one trip through the brass tumbler or a few trips into the chamber lead to sticky cases and double-feeds.

    I love my PS90, I think the AR57 upper is a pretty cool idea too at about $500 savings over the FN gun. The cartridge isn’t really overpriced, 40-50 cents/shot for premium bullets (Hornady v-max)is actually quite decent. I have dies but don’t reload since the cases show signs of stress and stretching after just one firing in the PS 90. However I’d love to get a 20″ contender in 5.7 just to see how it performs in a long barrel. In addition to which it would eliminate case stretch and allow me to use those dies I bought. How’s that for a $300 answer to a $30 problem?

    the “o” has a long way to go before he matches the employee of the f’n decade back in the 90’s…brother bill c. brought about the most profitable period in my 30yrs. as a dealer.

    but i do think o has a good chance to eclipse clinton…employee of the millennium? almost makes me want to pull an ffl again…


  12. Linoge Says:

    If I had not already spent too much on magazines and 5.56 ammunition in planning for a 5.56 upper, I might have to steal a 57AR from you, Dr. StrangeGun. As it is, I think I would only really be happy with the 6″ barrel + 6″ silencer arrangement (that just looks shiny), and that would require far too much paperwork and money at the moment.

    So, does that mean he got the special parking space?

  14. drstrangegun Says:


    We’re a type 7 with a machine shop… you can always get our 16″ and then later on pop for $200 (well, twice) to SBR it and attach a suppressor đŸ™‚

  15. Linoge Says:

    Bah. Stop tempting me.

    And, on a more serious note, it is that additional $400 that is making me hit the “pause” button on this purchase.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
