Custom Build

Really well done AR-15 build by gotfish at the AR15 forum. Thankfully he put up a parts list of what was used. I’m a fan of covering up as much of the barrel as possible; always liked the monolithic-look. This does give me ideas for my Dissipator build. (GRH)

- DD upper and 14.5” CHF barrel / low profile gas block
- Spike’s Enhanced lower
- Troy TRX Standard 13” rail and sights
- Magpul STR, AFG, Moe+ grip, mags
- Surefire G2X Tactical with Gear Sector mount
- YHM 5C1 flash hider
- BCM BCG & Charging handle

M95

A Yugoslavian AK variant chambered in 5.56x45/.223. These rifles are quite rare and collectable since the small number of them that did make it to the U.S were mostly parts kits. This example has an Iraqi “Tabuk” style fixed stock, which some companies like Ironwood Designs make reproductions of. (GRH)

American Built Arms T-Grip

Designed for the Tavor, it can still be installed on any handguard with a rail. It seems to go the route of ergonomics over aesthetics, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I’d have a hard time justifying putting it on my rifle. The odd, almost “organic” appearance clashes with the precision machined lines of the Tavor or any quality AR-15. For lack of a better description, it looks out place on a rifle. To be fair it could be one of the most comfortable grips out there and I may get one just to try it out, so my opinion may change. (GRH)

Dissipator

I’ve been thinking of doing a cheaper AR-15 build next although my plan was to start the Beowulf. A Dissipator like the one in the photos is kind of what I’m aiming for; something cheap (in a good way) that I can use and abuse more so than the Shrike. Not every AR has to be decked with the newest accessories and gear; plain and simple can work just as well. (GRH)

Daewoo DR-200

A Korean made rifle that is often described as a combination of the AK and AR into one platform. Early models entered the U.S market with a pistol grip and side-folding stock. Later models were neutered with thumbhole stocks to be import compliant. Note the Norinco 120 round drum. These will fit into most standard AR-15’s as well as the Daewoo since it uses AR magazines.

FAL

Although commonly referred to as the “right arm of the free world” and characterized as the AK-47’s arch nemesis, the FAL is more often times compared to its rival the HK G3. Ergonomically the FAL is much friendlier to the user than the G3. The rivalry continues to this day but with different weapons; with FN’s SCAR 16 & 17 competing with HK’s 416 and 417. (GRH)

Saiga 12 030

These particular Saiga shotguns flew under the radar of most people since the Vepr 12 garnered all of the attention when it hit the U.S market. Although the Saiga 12 030 looks like the Vepr 12, it has noticeable differences. It uses standard AK handguards and is built on a standard receiver, note that the trunnion isn’t bulged. One advantage it has over the Vepr 12 is that the hinged dust cover uses a metal picatinny rail instead of a polymer one that the Vepr has. (GRH)

Hawk Engineering MM-1

Normally the MM-1’s are 40mm but apparently there were some in 37mm, possibly for riot control purposes. Although it does look like a modern design, it’s based on a much older rotating launcher. The intimidating appearance of the MM-1 has probably lead to more roles in Hollywood movies than actual service issue with police departments or military forces. (GRH)

Armscorp M21

Not to be confused with Armscor of the Philippines and South Africa, Armscorp rifles are U.S made. This particular example however appears to have a custom, maybe even homemade stock. Note the Israeli FAL handguard integrated into the forearm. Sometimes unique one-of-a-kind parts can add value to a rifle, but it really depends on how well executed and made it was. (GRH)

Glock 17L

Also known as the “Longslide” these handguns are often times believed to have been discontinued, but other say they remain in production. The latter is true; the 17L according to most dealers are only produced every 2 years. 2014 is currently a production period for it so that is why there is a sudden influx of brand new 17L’s on the market. Best time to buy one, or wait another 2 years or pay an inflated price when supply runs dry. (GRH)
