    would a POSP 4×24 be a good idea on this gun?

    That way you’d get a bullet drop compensator tailored to the 7.62×39 which is the same bullet drop as the blackout, right?

    it’s only 4x and illuminated so you might be able to use it like an ACOG…

    • Sian

      Supersonic Blackout should have less bullet drop, comparing apples to apples because of its low drag projectile. the subsonic round’s drop would be totally different though. Seems like a reflex optic+swing-away magnifier might be the way to go with this setup.

    • Nater

      No, this thing is meant for close quarters work. You really don’t want to be running a magnified optic for that sort of business.

  • SpudGun

    Okay, so the Beretta ARX-160 may not sound as sexy as ‘Honey Badger’, but I would make some serious moves on her if I could.

  • I don’t get it. What does .300 Blackout subsonic offer that the 9mm it is intended to replace doesn’t? The bullet is smaller across, but about 70 grains heavier. If you want a subsonic round, then use a .45 ACP.

    Supersonic I understand. Some nice expanding hunting rounds in that would make short work of anyone you had to shoot.

  • Matt P Hache

    This gun rocks! I would love to try one out some day with sub rounds, but I just dont like that color, maybe if it were more of a tan, but but you cant go wrong with black either. But I guess thats why they call it the honey badger

  • Spade

    I would eat a puppy to get that stock.

  • 18D

    Why is everyone comparing the .300 BLK to 9mm and .45? With subsonic there might be some questions, but most operators aren’t going to use subsonic. When I was in Group we never used subsonic in our MP5’s. If we did, the guns certainly would have been quieter, that’s true, but a rifle round gives the shooter substantially more capability than a handgun round.

    • Rev. Clint

      plus with the blackout it doesnt require a magazine well retrofit or a new lower… just a new upper and mag.

  • Flounder

    The honey badger is pretty sexy lookin I’ll give you that one steve.

    And 18D everyone is comparing them just cause they seem equal when you just look at Muzzle energy and bullet weight with subsonic ammo.

    BUT it is comparing apples to oranges… Cause rifles are rifles and pistols are for getting a rifle. 😀 or when you can’t have a rifle.

  • Lance

    Looks cool.

  • Bandito762

    why no pics of the gun girl you fell in love with?
    I also think this gun is pretty neat.

    All about the Honey Badger:

  • Jim

    Honey Badger must have been drinking HK beer when designing that HK’ish sliding buttstock and almost HK Navy model like pistol grip. They look good on a AR platform.

    The .300 Blackout has been a great way to get JSOC to buy and inventory another caliber of ammunition and weapons.

    I wouldnt want to carry one. After sentry removal or whatever if you got into a fire fight trying during exfil you’d be stuck with a weapon that has the ballistics of a black powder cartridge weapon. Can it punch through the latest Russian body armour? No. Any CRISAT test results? No. Its good for tier 2 and 3 Hajis only.

      Like I stated above, just because it CAN fire subsonic ammo, what keeps the user from using full powered rifle ammo if they need to? The real question is how much performance does 300 blk have out of a very short barrel compared to a hot loading of 10mm auto out of the same sized gun?

      I don’t have the figures in. front of me, could someone compare an ak pistol with a six inch barrel to a ten mm. ?

      • Buster Charlie

        Sorry for the double post, please delete the parent post it gave me an error when I posted it?

      According to a draco mini owner, 7.5″ barrels will produce around1080 ft-lbs at the muzzle with military 7.62 x39, and 300 blk is suppose to be similar.

      According to ballistics by the inch, Out of a similar barrel 10mm will push around 860 ft-lbs.

      • Rev. Clint

        seems like you could load it with many different types of bullet beyond what any pistol caliber would allow including match or API. Besides at a longer distances the spitzer bullet will out perform a 10mm. Also seems that at a medium distance it would be more accurate
