Bullets & Beans

So I’ve been kind of off and on with posts the past week; mostly because of net issues again and trying to relax these last few days of summer before my next semester of college starts.

That being said I’ve been tossing around several ideas for a possible giveaway prize this time around but because my DShK’s wheeled mount carved a huge hole into my wallet, the prize ideas have changed constantly.

I’m still aiming for (no pun intended) a Halloween themed giveaway. I already have the giveaway details planned, it’s just the prize package that I’m working on.

Initially I was thinking a deactivated RPG-7 would be a fun prize but who wants a wall hanger? I’m thinking maybe a Day Z themed giveaway, which pairs up with the Halloween theme. I don’t play the game, don’t have the time or a decent gaming PC, I just watch the videos from guys like FrankieonPCin1080P.

If you’ve played the game, you’ll probably recognize the stuff listed below. So if I can manage to organize my finances in time, giveaway will include…

x1 Mosin PU Sniper Rifle

x1 Survival Backpack

x1 Set of Bandages

x1 Can of Beans

Probably have said this quite a few times since I mentioned this second giveaway but as always everything is tentative. Things can change. I’ll make a post confirming if the giveaway is a go.

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)

Kel-Tec RFB

The bullpup 7.62x51/.308 rifle that uses FAL magazines. This one has been refinished in what the seller says is Duracoat Magpul FDE. Generally when you refinish a firearm its because of one or more reasons, usually to cover up wear or damage or you didn’t like the factory color options. Sometimes it can raise the value, but for the most part it doesn’t. If this were hydro-dipped in something tending like Multicam, Kryptex or ATACS, it might draw more buyer interest but as it stands it just looks like it fell into a bucket of hardware store paint.

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.

TTSX

The Barnes 300 grain Tipped Triple Shock X bullet for the .458 SOCOM. Nasty hunting round suitable for wild hogs. Wilson Combat sells and packages their ammo using this bullet head. (GRH)

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)
