First off I would like to state that this is a subject of an article off of Valery Shilens gun club and that this is only a small excerpt of the origional subject topic, but it makes you wonder where we are heading in our future.
I remember, back in November 1996, I had an exclusive opportunity of being present at the birthday party of an outstanding American gun designer Gene Stoner, the father of the M-16. It was an entirely family gathering of Stoners closest friends. Stoner was not feeling well{he had just had a round of chemotherapy}. The only *stranger*, along with me was, Gennadiy Nikonov, the designer of the AN-94 assault rifle. During our conversations, Stoner noted that in the States, the small arms industry was experiencing serious problems. He went on to say that out of each 10 university graduates, only one had a qualification of a mechanical engineer. None of them were specialists in small arms designing. In response, Gennadiy Nikonov said that, despite the huge problems in the industry, Universities in ST. Petersburg, Tula and Izhersk were still providing higher education for future creators of small arms systems. A good share of MSc and PhD candidates were students of small arms science.

Also I would like to state that this is not to flame ANYONE and that I would like to get the impressions from any industry professional or anyone who cares to respond. Alex [url]http://clubs.guns.ru//eng/konolov.html[/url]

Just look at the M96 Expeditionary thread.

not to mention teh BATF breathing down your neck at every turn. I am still trying to get the G36 style furniture for the AR15 finalized. I shudder to think what kind of hell I am gonna have to go through with them once I get past prototypes. Zaz

And that's mostly a cosmetic change!!!! - not that I don't like what you're trying to do - it's the closest we can get under the dumb laws we have. If we have this much trouble adding a cosmetic change, how are we supposed to advance the small arms technology?

You shouldn't have to even talk to the BATF about the stocks; it's not a regulated item. Drop me an e-mail and I can give you a call if you would like. We use Pro-E, Solid Works and CADKEY. Do you have a solid model yet? scout@cavalryarms.com

I think the ID guy is using Vellum Solids, but it will export just about anything. I think he just picked up SolidWorks, though. models at this point are styreen mock-ups and useless other than for feel and size. I am still trying to get the foregaurd to freefloat. good lead on the foundry, thanks. Garry, I will let you know when we get closer. CAV-36 anyone? [:)] Zaz
