Photo Of The Day – the best online place to view the coolest images of firearms. When I was younger (a lot younger), every boy knew the ArmaLite AR-7 was the good-to-go thing to have if you survived a crash landing, and had to protect yourself against dangerous predators and get food. I guess we never thought about the issues about firearm permits and getting them on board the plane, yes it was a time of few worries. Fast forward to today, and we have the SAI GR-22 & GR-9 rifles made by SAI in Denmark. I think the calibers are kind of self-explanatory – .22LR and 9×19 mm. The suppressor system is integrated with a suppressor casing made of carbon tube (.22LR) or aluminum (9 mm).

It’s pretty impressive to see 2 rounds of 9 mm brass in the air, while the third is on its way. Respect to the much unknown operator!

The action is odd. It’s a pistol grip manual repeater. I wasn’t aware that existed, apart from this obvious example, but you’re welcome to correct and shame me in the comments below.

    Is this not technically a lever action rifle?

    I checked the price, it's about 1600$ in denmark. It's not even obscenely expensive! Ideal bunny blaster for sure
