    I like 1st gen the best. It allows me to dummy cord my skittles bag for quick tactical yum yum.

      Your skittles can’t be true Oerator Tactical until they come in Kryptek patterns

    I didn’t realize they had multiple generations. I hadn’t even seen that smallest one before. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I held a rifle with an AFG, it wasn’t all that uncomfortable, yet it still seemed slightly strange to me.

    I have the Gen 1 and that was bigger than I wanted. With the pics, now I can see why. FYI – concerning the company’s name, I think it’s without a capital P.

    The connotations that could be derived from the title if the author was dyslexic…

    And eventually they will shrink to nothingness, and we will return to shooting rifles as they have been successfully shot for hundreds of years

    “Interestingly, they keep getting smaller across the generations.”

    Pretty soon, they’ll shrink right into nonexistence. Which is a good thing. Because AFGs are stupid.
