Vector Arms V53

A U.S made pistol with the HK93 as its platform. Although it looks like an incomplete rifle, these are classified as pistols/handguns, so adding a stock would reclassify it as an SBR. Adding a forward grip would reclassify it as an AOW; both of which require NFA paperwork and fees. So what is the practicality of this as a pistol? None; aside from being a novelty, this is just an alternative option to fast tracking an SBR build. (GRH)

Norinco Model 320

An unlicensed Chinese made clone of the Israeli Uzi, the Model 320 is largely similar to the original. Due to import restrictions, the barrel nut is welded on which prevents swapping out the barrel to different lengths. It also uses a special bracket in order to mount the crude wooden thumbhole stock. They’re cheaper than original IMI imported Uzi’s but they generally have poor finish and rough machining. If you’re in the market for a semi-auto Uzi, you’re better off getting a Vector build. (GRH)

HK-101

So I saw two comments on the Trio post regarding the paddle magazine release I still need to install on my SAR-8.

Apparently there is some confusion as to what a paddle magazine release is.

A vast majority of the HK series of rifles that were sold in the U.S (HK91, HK93 & HK94) did not have the paddle magazine release due to importation restrictions.

Below is what a normal HK91, along with any clones such as the SAR-3, SAR-8, FMP XG3S and even PTR-91, will look like. That circular button behind the magazine well is the magazine release.Unfortunately it is very difficult to operate one handed. It is not ambidextrous; the button is only present on the right hand side of the receiver.

The paddle magazine release looks like this. That little lever sticking out from the bottom of the push-pin tab acts very much like your standard AK magazine release. The rifle in the photo is an HK41 Santa Fe import, one of the earliest imported versions of the HK91 that retained the paddle magazine release.

Here you can see the paddle magazine release installed during someone’s build using an MP5 flat/receiver.

Now as one of the questions asked, is it illegal? No. It’s simply adding back a feature that was original to the rifle but removed for importation into the U.S. It makes it much easier to do magazine changes. It might not be legal in a restrictive state like California, but I’m not up to date on their laws regarding this; I don’t live there.

The only other concern would be possible 922r compliance. There are U.S made alternative paddle magazine releases available if that is an issue.

The Tac-Latch is a sideways operated paddle magazine release, where you push it in from the side to actuate the release. It’s supposed to be much easier to install than an original factory paddle magazine release.

So hopefully that clears up the confusion.

Underfolder

A run of the mill Polish AKM from Century Arms with an underfolding stock. Although popular for its compact size, the stock has some disadvantages. It lacks a proper cheek weld and it will eventually work itself loose. This is often why when you see a used one for sale online, the sellers will usually mention if the stock folds and locks up tight or if there is considerable play and movement. (GRH)

"Shotty"

A rather interesting AOW (Any Other Weapon) build. Using the Black Aces receiver, this allows for the use of most if not all of the Saiga 12 magazines and drums currently on the market. Most AOW shotguns sacrifice capacity for compact concealment; this would be a reversal, especially if using a drum. (GRH)

LAR Grizzly

The Mark V was the last generation model of what is essentially a beefed up 1911. Although a majority of the Grizzly pistols are chambered in .45 Winchester Magnum, they were available in .45 ACP, 10mm, .44 Magnum and 50 AE. The latter being the most expensive of the caliber options due to their general rarity. On average a LAR Grizzly Mark V in 50 AE will almost always hit the $2,000+ price range. (GRH)

Rohm RG23

Contrary to the belief that German guns are made of quality materials to exacting standards, the firearms made by Rohm are generally considered unsafe, made of poor materials and hold little value. In fact some gun value books specifically say Rohm revolvers are worthless and carry no cash value. The RG23 is chambered in .22 LR with a capacity of 6 rounds. (GRH)

Colt 1851 Navy

A rather old but ornately decorated Colt revolver covered in Damascene gold scroll work. Seems to have lost quite a bit of its gold finish on the left hand side. Curious as to how much it will draw at auction. I’m not much of an old revolver fan but I can appreciate the craftsmanship and history in them. (GRH)

Hi-Point C9 Comp

Run of the mill C9 with the hard to find factory compensator. For such an ugly handgun, they did manage to design a aesthetically pleasing compensator. For whatever reason Hi-Point doesn’t seem to sell these anymore. (GRH)

Double Up

Hollywood’s obsession with dual-wielding pistols. Although largely impractical in most if any real life situation (other than showing off at the range), the John Woo-esque style of firearm combat always adds that visual boost. (GRH)
