what i learned from this thread, so far:

TFR hates english food, and has no taste in beer. (I like Newcastle brown!)

I think they were posting Newcastle as an example of good english beer. It's clearly quite tasty.

they don't totally impede proper form on a revolver like they do on a semi-auto

yeah, a lot of complete ignoramuses

They work on guns too small to grab on to with the grip they came with. Like my SP-101.

For a two handed stanced grip they don't do 'nothin.

Eotechs are great sights



But not as durable as an aimpoint. Last month an instructors' eotech broke on first impact from a simunition round. The mk18's with aimpoints have taken literally thousands of sim hits to the lenses.

Anecdotes!

I've seen aimpoints fail. My EOTech still works. Therefore I am right.

Heh, heh, heh... you are only the first victim of many in this holy campaign.

Absolutely. There's lots of reasons for either. People pick what they like. Both are great optics.

baiting you guys would be a lot more fun if you weren't so drat logical and level-headed :(

The idea is waaaaay older than that game. The US Army trialed it extensively in the 1970s and early 1980s. It was, obviously, deemed way too bulky and heavy.

I would love to see pictures, articles, and maybe a TV show about this.

Kay so I want to make one of these pretty bad. Do those drums work yet because I think 10/22 stick mags are stupid looking. Plus hey, drum mag.

If someone made a straight or at least slightly less curved 10/22 mag I'd buy that.

Are you guys loving retarded? Giving someone who can't properly operate a normal firearm a folding carbine to defend themself?

And when that logic doesn't work you're saying "BUT, it'd be great for shooting someone elses mugger."

Who let the mall ninjas in?

except that the flammable, nay, explosive propellant is actually contained entirely in that brass bit at the bottom there. :kiddo:

Wrong. The brass part only holds the primer and the flash hole. On those clear shotshells you can clearly see gunpowder through the side.

You're caught, admit it

Wow, I never realized that this would create such a shitstorm.
From the other pictures on the posted link, I am led to believe that the rear optic is offset to the left, so you don't look through both.

The rifle above, directly from the factory before tacticlollery:

I prefer this one to the abortion above


EDIT: Found another article on it, with longer range optics and what looks almost like a nerf Longshot Bipod:

e: It would seem that I forgot Image Leeching == Bad. Fixed.

That one on the bottom is a JAE-100 stock and they are awesome. They're the only bolt on stock I'd buy for the M-14. Since they all cost $500+ and the SAGE stock is funky as hell I'd get my money's worth.

I don't know if I meet ph4lcon's definition of "paid to be bad rear end" but I do CQB and I say using an M14 for room clearing is retarded. Also what AF PJs carry isn't exactly the gold standard for room clearing, in case that's not obvious.

It's got 8 pounds of steel on top of your supporting hand and you can't swing it around for poo poo. The barrel is long as hell and you have to choke up the stock all the way past your ear to keep it out of doorways in the stack. Anyone running point with it would have to have forearms the size of turkeys to hold it up with because it's so god drat heavy. The recoil and flash are huge, and loud. And the ergonomics suck.

In CQB smaller + lighter = more better, so trying use an M14 for room clearing is like trying to learn to dance while wearing a body cast.

I like rubber grips but not finger grooves. Especially on my PGO 870. With a heat shield.
