Great photo by Empty Shell LLC of their Micro Gun sitting in a pile of links. I would happily take on the sacrifice to aid in the creating of this endeavor. How do we know if those are just a pile of new links or fired links? They should do this picture again on video [Read More…]

This post is part of two others, about a recent range outing with some very historically interesting small arms, the DeLisle commando carbine, the M50 Reising submachine gun, and the Russian PM1910 Maxim heavy machine gun. All of these are NFA items (either Class III or [Read More…]
Unknown belt-fed pistol. Anyone read Cyrillic? Looks like it is a 7.62mm and possibly 20rd belt? I think the hook protruding out the back might be the charging handle? Is this pistol semi auto or manually actuated? Perhaps it is like a revolver and the trigger advances [Read More…]

Check out this DShK heavy machine gun. Clever improvisation using a shopping cart. With regards to the shopping cart, he should make better use of it. He could carry a lot more ammo in that shopping cart.
The Russian Army will be upgrading its automatic infantry support weapons soon. The legacy 7.65x54mmR PKM belt-fed general purpose machine gun will be supplanted in the dismounted role by the PKP “Pecheneg” automatic rifle designed at the end of the 20th [Read More…]
The Australian Army is evaluating an over the shoulder weapon support system called Reaper. The system is very simple. In fact it is a modified camera stabilizer. Here is a similar concept by Easyrig. The concept is either a chest rig or backpack system that has [Read More…]
The mid-late 1950s… Could there be a more optimistic time in United States history? I feel there’s no better rifle to illustrate the industry, innovation, and unbridled optimism of that time than the Armalite AR-10 7.62x51mm select-fire military rifle. Made [Read More…]
A 21 year old man, in Singapore, was arrested in his home after people reported seeing him wielding the gun shaped object, pictured above, at a local mass rapid transit station. Now I am all for people enjoying what makes them happy. Be it Nerf like guns painted black. [Read More…]
Sure there were some people trying to convert AR10s to shoot 12ga. Then there are the AR style 12ga shotguns. Now someone has made a beltfed AR upper that shoots 12ga shotgun shells. Just need to iron out the kinks.
We love our readers. No really, we do. You send us lots of great stuff from all the tradeshows around the world. One of your eagle-eyed kin spotted the upcoming Astra MG556 5.56 semi-auto rifle. Externally very similar to the M249 SAW or FN MiniMi, the Astra is a [Read More…]
Ok, I admit it, I am completely awed by Freedom Ordnance’s upcoming 9mm belt-fed upper receivers. Yes, the practicality of said weapons is likely to be minimal, but the fun factor is off the charts, which is an excellent reason in my book to make and buy a [Read More…]
Freedom Ordnance of Indiana is making waves with its upcoming 9mm belt-fed upper receiver. In their latest teaser, the FM-9 is put to a 1000 round belt and eats it without issue. In the comments, Freedom Ordnance indicates the belt was over 45 feet long prior to the [Read More…]
