Ok, I’m phoning it in this week. I found these old HK BUIS I thought I sold long ago, and I found that the old article on them has all the images missing.

I have a Geissele AR15 reaction rod and while I think it was pricey, I have gotten my moneys worth out of it. Since I bought it the price has gone up to $100.

I ran across this article from a few days ago about the new rifle ( vaporware ) shown by Kalashnikov. They have came up with the cutting edge idea of putting out an AK variant in 308 or, 7.62mm NATO. One wonders if this is just an attempt to sell rifles in other countries … Read moreRUSSIA FOLLOWS US ARMY EXAMPLE : CONSIDERS TAKING A STEP BACKWARDS 50 YEARS
Back around Hurricane Irma I got thinking about what I would get if I were starting my firearm collection from scratch. I still have an unfinished article based off my musing I might post someday.

The TA01NSN ACOG is a classic at this point. A compact fixed 4x scope with a bullet drop chart calibrated for M855 out of a carbine barrel.

The AK-47 has been left behind to a certain degree. If we look back on the past 10+ years of civilian small arms development, we can see the AR15 has grown by leaps and bounds while the AK market has had much less evolution.
