Rainier Arms at IWA Germany 2016. Country Rifles (3/3)

This is part 3 of the “Country Rifles” by Rainier Arms and Blown Deadline as shown at the IWA exhibition in Germany 2016.

Let’s start the third part with some “Mamma Mia” from Italy.

Fortis REV II Free Float Rail.


Like the french rifle (not pictured here), the flag is really enhanced by the lower which was missing unfortunately.

MEGA Arms and Great Britain. A shame they can’t own rifles like this, regardless of color.

I wonder which country will get the most likes on Chummerz Instagram?

Again, which is your favorite? Which countries and firearms are missing? 

How about a Benelli in the Italian colors?

Supressed B&T APC-9 in the Swiss colors?

Norinco CQ in the Chinese Flag?

A finnish 7.62 RK 76 in blue and white?

Bring it on!  I’d love to write part 4 of the Country Rifles.

    Actually we can own rifles “like” that: straight-pull ARs are not limited by magazine capacity or “assault rifle” features…:D

  • BattleshipGrey

    They look great, but why do some, like Germany, Italy and France only have the receivers only painted while others like the US, UK and Sweden have the forearm painted as well?

    • Suppressed

      Just a different scheme to mix things up. I understand the desire for consistency, but it’d be kinda lame if they all used the same format but basically just substituting colors.

  • USMC03Vet

    More America, please!

  • Graham2

    There are plenty of ARs in the UK. Yes, I know they’re not semi auto but we can shoot them when we want on some pretty decent ranges. We can shoot a lot more than people think.

    • Anonymoose

      It’s still not enough. I wish we could help you. 🙁

  • Ryan

    So long as its straight pull I can own an AR in the UK?

    • ChierDuChien

      Yes. Under UK-Style Gun Control, non-semi-auto AR is fine. Under Australian-Style Gun Control, even looking like military is a No-No.


    Am I the only one that doesn’t understand what this is supposed to be? Is there a point to this?

      It’s Art, with a bit of National Pride thrown in.

        It’s art for expats. You can’t own semis in bongland. If that Italian AR is in 5.56 and not .223, you can’t own that there either.

    The US may well be in the same boat soon.

    • Anonymoose

      Nah. the Trumperor will save us from the demoncrats’ machinations.

  • Erik B

    I am fully aware that you can own straight-pulls in the UK. I just wrote about some of them (Italian), and have ordered a Troy Pump.

    They may look the same, but they are not semi-automatic hence my comment.

    I did not see any rifle with French flag markings on it. Are you confusing the Union Jack from the UK with the French Tricolore??
