Guns in the press

First we had the AK-15. Now, we have the AR-47. The AR-47 was actually a gun but I rather doubt it was used in this case. And the company that made them doesn’t seem to be around any more.

    Yesterday our local fishwrap had a story about a robbery wherein the victim “ran to his upstairs apartment and grabbed a 17mm rifle”…pretty badass but not very likely!

    It’s on Fox News, has to be true.

    Considering the mention of the Sheriff’s AR-15 in the previous sentence, it was probably a typo. It’s the hyperbolic references to it being an assault rifle that annoys me. I bet a $1000 it wasn’t.

    As we all know the AR-47 fires a 47mm bullet.

    Ah, Special Weapons down in Mesa.

    Wasn’t that the dude that made all the cheap HK clones and the forum people don’t like?

    (Looks it up…

    Yep, Todd Bailey. Lots of people really didn’t like his companies or work. Some people seem to have dealt with him OK, though.)

    If you want the best, get a Ruger Mini-30. Out of the box they’re not great, because they’ll only fire US-made 7.62X39 (which is .308, whereas the commie stuff is .311), but if you get a proper set of Wolff springs to handle the harder primers, and fire-lap the barrel out to not quite .310, you can handle both US and commie ammo OK, and will be accurate to at least 300 meters.

    If you know that you’re only going to fire that east bloc stuff, get the barrel lapped all the way out to .311.

    With the Ruger, you get JMB design, not Stoner OR Kalashnikov, and JMB knew more about rifle design than both of them put together.

    Ok, now this picture is priceless:

    Kalashnikov and Stoner holding each other’s, er, weapons.
