lumpy are trying to start some hesse shit?

I am pretty sure this isn't a joke. That is the only reason I am posting.


The Vulcan company is Hesse. That said, there have been some people that have used the lowers for ultralight builds with no problems.

I see what you mean about your sarcasm...

Admit it Lumpy - you just want it because it has a "tac-handle".
Link Posted: 10/2/2004 5:15:54 PM EST
Dude, why not one of these instead?

Carbon 15 Model 4

What's the price difference between that Vulcan and this Bushmaster?
Link Posted: 10/2/2004 5:30:21 PM EST
Lumpy,
Your TacPoint will look good on that.

Self-Lubricating? What the hell?

Give me aluminum. Been there and done that with an AR-180B. Probably nothing wrong with it but it just ain't for me. No flame war intended.

Hey, what a coincidence... I found my next weapon as well! There is this new company... making REALLY cool HK like products, but they are better than HK.

Check it out here!

This has to be a joke. Lumpy would never trade his G17 and SW5 for something even of this caliber.

You should get two!!

Hey! I've seen the colorful two-page ads and I'm utterly convinced that Vulcan makes the best arms available to the civilian market. Lumpy's the man and don't you dare take issue with anything he says!!

The carbon fiber/aramid lower is supposed to be a nice piece. Reportedly because it is a contract piece that Vulcan doesnt work on

I had one of their rail systems. POS would not accept any of the accessories I tried to mount to it, inlcuding KAC rail covers.

Good luck with that, Lumpy.

Hey Lumpy,

I thought it was slick vinyl that you were into, not self-lubricating carbon?

I dont mind if stuff is loose. Im just using it for a range gun and absolutely nothing else.

The V15 rifles feature receivers made of space age Carbon/Aramid fibers in a polymer binder.

I have absolutely zero experience with Vulcan firearms or carbon/aramid recievers, but seems like a cool concept and its in my current "house poor" price range.




You sir are not Lumpy196! What have you done with the real Lumpy196. We want answers and we want them now!

If thats directed at me, its over my head...



Well, there is the whole fiasco over in the Optics Forum, where certain members have suggested Tacpoints are fine optics because they will only be using them at the range. Or maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

Reports of quality control and breakage of lower receiver, at the buffer extension, if im not mistaken, weren't enough?

Can't think of anymore particulars, most people won't admit to owning one

Snob ass elitist internet commandos.

Just because it doesnt say Colt on the side doesnt meant it might not work well enough for the 20 rounds a month I shoot.




I will. I own a HESSE P series. No problems. The dealer (Iowa LE Officer & Gun shop owner) I bought it from knew hesse didn't honor warranty's so he said if it breaks he'll give me a oly lower. I figured it was a good deal. It was yet failed.

Coal Creek Armory should be able to provide these the quickest, and with a minimum of hassle.

I wonder if Vulcan is gonna start putting a blue ring around the upper and lower receivers to distinguish them from inferior aluminum forged models?

This picture makes about as much sense as this thread.


Link Posted: 10/3/2004 5:52:23 AM EST
Carbon Fiber is an incredibly BAD choice for a combat firearm. It's light and strong, yeah, but if you nick it or chip it, it will crack and fail. Just like Carbon Fiber bicycle frames; light, yes, strong. yes, lay it down, it's all over.

Friends don't let friends buy Hesse/Vulcan.

If you buy the V15 you are going to turn in to this guy.



Please do not turn in to him.
