Does anyone know anything about Vulcan products? I have seen a few ads for their equipment, and they had a booth at last year's NRA convention in Pittsburgh. But I have never seen any of their stuff at any range and have never heard of anyone buying any.

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think this belongs in the "magazines" section, but here is all you need to know

Rifles:

Armalite
Bush
Colt


M­agazines:

USGI contract (see the Mag FAQ)

There are a few decent things outside of this, but if you forget everything but this you'll do well with your $

Vulcan makes machine guns that are used by Special Forces.

I assume you mean special as a politically correct way of saying "short yellow bus"

That's what they claim on their home page. I don't even want to know what special forces they are refering to.

I just can't see buying a firearm with no warranty.

run away........get yourself either a RRA, BUSHMASTER, ARMALITE or COLT.........don't even think of buying a hesse/vulcan.

How many Vulcan naysayers have ever seen, touched, fired, and/or owned a Vulcan?

Consider the sources.

I bough a hesse AR, when they first came out..............worse fucking experience I ever had with a firearms, jams. oh and guess what......they refused to fix the fuckin' thing. luckily I unloaded that piece of shit, back to the dealer I bought it from, and got my money back. to this day their products are still garbage.......

Vulcan continues to market their products to unknowing 18 year olds who want a "cool looking gun."

I have not fired a Vulcan, I only watched someone do it from a distance. I never saw someone use a charging handle so much. He had the upper off and poked around at the insides for a while. I thought maybe I could help him troubleshoot it so I went over (thus finding out the brand). It just didn't want to strip rounds from the mag... even my mags which are working fine.


It was the guy's first rifle... I was shocked...

He knew his 1911s though!

Remember your algebra, huh?

If a = b and b = c, then a = c (Transitivity of Equality).

Vulcan is nothing more than dog shit molded into the shape of an AR15.

Yeah I have never stuck my hand into a garbage disposal either, but I know it would hurt.

You going to try crap like this?



Not me. Have at it.
Plenty of threads from members who tried it, and reported what it is, anyone can do a search.
Everything from stripped receiver threads to cracked receivers.

They're arguably the easiest and quickest AR15s to purchase, there's no need to fill out any paperwork, and they're even 100% legal in all 50 states. ...just take the 500 bucks, put it in a garbage can, pour some lighter fluid over the money, and light 'er up. Congratulations, your very own Vulcan AR15!

Alright, so you technically did not purchase a Vulcan AR15 using this method, but the end result is about the same. It's just a more entertaining way of wasting your money.

ME..
Well, the HESSE --
Neighbor had one.
SHOT GREAT , but looked like garbage.
Link Posted: 8/12/2005 10:43:58 PM EDT
like i said i had one for a few months and had nothing but problems, it was like using a bolt action it never ejected its own damn shells, not to mention it was unaccurate as all hell. Sold it to a friend....hahaha i know im a basterd.......and bought a bushmaster. i have shot all brands of AR15s and nothing compares to that first bag of shit my parents bought me.
