    Is serbu a good name? Ive heard of Mark before but usually in the context of gun smithing

    • chris lynch

      can’t tell if srs

      • PersonCommenting

        I am serious I dont know anything about them. Their stuff looks pretty ordinary. Not much finish. Probably well made just look like a bunch of home made stuff.

        • Twilight sparkle

          You’re seeing the back to the basics stuff mark has been up to lately. It’s unfortunate that he’s throwing away his reputation like this

          • PersonCommenting

            I went to his site and a few of his guns look very well done. They dont look like they were made in a garage. I know that all his products arent and are probably very well made but quite a few just lack finish and style. Hes making some good looking AR uppers and semi auto 50 cal which looked pretty good.

            Again was he big at one time? Ive only heard of him as a gun smith.

          • Twilight sparkle

            He has minor fame for the serbu super shorty

          • annan

            Correct. The serbu super shorty (shotgun) was the greatest advance in shotguns since the sawn off shotgun. It’s basically a shortened pump action shotgun, which has been done before but not to that degree. He should imo continue to iterate that design along with variants, as not only is it a great legal gun for home defense (one handed shotgun pistol for the win) but it also has brand name recognition.
            Some ideas:
            – A fancy upscale version for rich/fancy people (use of wood and bluing)
            – A version with a club grip, this would probably increase ease of pointshooting and increase shootability by decreasing felt recoil. (as the gun recoils back into the hand and loose grip, not twisting the wrist) It also would look cooler.
            – A vertical or horizontal dual barrel version (two serbu super shorties welded together), doubling shell capacity and the weight helping with recoil.
            – A girly serbu, I’m thinking one that’s modeled after the looks of a cheerleader spirit stick

            …for fancy people. That was cruel but fair.

  • Giolli Joker

    I like the 12GA repeater: “in a world where man has lost the knowledge to manufacture springs…”

  • RavishedBoy

    MSRP is 11 – 12 bucks, but i think street price will be 10 – 10.50.

  • John

    “Room clearing” with a .50 BMG single shot? REALLY?

    So is this what Serbu is up to instead of manufacturing his SU-15 uppers people are waiting for and have money on deposit?

  • Twilight sparkle

    Am I the only person that finds this cringy?
    Also aren’t open bolt designs basically banned now?

    • Edeco

      My understanding is it’s ok without a magazine. Not a lawyer or making them myself tho.

    • bmstylee

      Not sure if it is actually banned but since open bolt designs are usually full auto the are basically illegal for new production guns.

  • gregge

    50 Cal Val resembles Emily Deschanel in her younger days.

  • mazkact

    Me thinks The Slamfire Repeatanator 2000 should have stayed in Royal’s garage.

  • Nick

    Am I the only one who can’t stand Royal Nonesuch? Also that GB-22 makes a Hi-Point look elegant.

    • bmstylee

      He is a hack. It’s only a matter of time till he is missing some didgets.
