This is my friend’s wall of NFA fun. He is an FFL. This is only 1 of three walls. Mostly everything there is select fire or NFA of some sort. Most have been converted while the KRISS Vector and H&K UMP are bonafide machine guns from factory. I took this photo [Read More…]
This video has gratuitous amounts of Tavor and Micro UZIs throughout the video. I think I saw a Negev belt fed.
