ummm, daaaayaaaam!

Kinda surprised rounds didn't start cooking off in the chamber.

RIP - Gunny Man

In honour of the Kalashnikov, the guy in the video hit his target about once in every 10 rounds.  Sounds about right.

Really? '88 industries'?

Come on, subby. This isn't that kind of website.

Some men prefer quantity over quality.

I'd love to see what it takes to kill an AK.

I know these guys--I bought two of my AKs from their store.  They also built this ridiculous thing,

Still, decent selection and prices.

You'll put your eye out with one of those things.

The only gun I've fired (aside from a .22 rifle when I was a cub scout), was an AK-47. I was in Vietnam at the Cu Chi tunnels, and it was set to full auto.

I burned through the rounds so fast it sounded like a loud zipper.

While I wouldn't mind a Russian made AK, I don't think I'd own the little hip fire this guy has. Doesn't appear to have much of a fun factor.

Let's see: 700 rounds of what looks like Wolf ammo = just under $180.00. Not sure what a new barrel and receiver would cost, but they'll likely need to be replaced. New furniture for that toy will run about $200.00. All that on top of the $200.00 tax stamp for the SBR.

How about honoring Sergei by drinking some vodak in memory of one Hell of an engineer, and maybe the price of feed for my rifle might not cost ~sixty cents a round.

the weapon he has is considered a pistol by the ATF, and can be carried loaded in states that issue carry permits. it is also more easily converted to an SBR than cutting the barrel of a longer ak47.

i know, because i have two ar15 "pistols"

Ahhh...Ok. Still don't know that i'd own one and FWIW, I consider myself to be a more of a handgun fan than rifles even though my oldest has almost talked me into building an AR.

Think I'll stick with my Glock 32

glocks are good guns, i have 4 myself. but the reason behind my ar15 pistols is rifle cartridge and higher capacity. some argue that it loses velocity, and to a certain extent that is true, but nobody cares if they are shot with a 5.56 travelling 4400fps or 2200fps or 1500fps.

My fingers getting tiiiiirrrred. There's got to be a faster way to do this.

Only weiners use single rounds. Full auto.....use it.

Came here to say that.  I hope this is a case of both subby and the mod who approved this just not knowing what "88" is supposed to mean?

Full autos have not been manufactured in the US since 1986.

I figured I'd come in here and see a bunch of gun nuts angry at submitter for buying into the myth that Kalashnikov actually designed the gun. He didn't; he was leader of a team that submitted a winning bid, which itself was based on an amalgamation of every other machine gun design that had been submitted that year. Kalashnikov's name was just added to the design later to make it look like a lowly sergeant had designed a successful and recognized product.

Especially firing straight into that metal plate. I dunno. Seems dumb to me.

I'm impressed that even with a totally overheated barrel, it doesn't jam or cook off rounds.

Just keeps shooting.

That's my kind of engineering.

A.) Wasn't on fire.. wood was smoking.. wasn't about to catch on fire, either.  Hint... sort'a hard to catch metal on fire - just ask any of the terminators (yes, said that laughingly, but seriously - metal doesn't burn that easily.... why they make guns out of them)
B.) Lunatic for sticking in in water. GREAT way to warp the hell out of parts and make it rust like a dirty biatch! (like to see it one week from now if he didn't strip and clean/oil it properly today)

A very good book on the subject:

The parts about the clusterfark that was the M16 development are truly facepalm-worthy.

jesus feckin christ! place your mags the right way, you nimrod! this guy sucks...
 
2013-12-25 09:58:11 AM  
So why are ammo price so high these days?
 
2013-12-25 11:34:20 AM  
This guy could be the uber-argument FOR high capacity magazines... He doesn't hit ANY target, and it takes him 15 minutes to change mags... thank you sir

Spray and pray motherfarker until you run out of ammo and then the other guy puts one round up your nose because you're an idiot
