Agreed. Living in a different state, I'd have more than one.

10.5 is a very handy length and points well, IME. As for their newfound popularity? I think a lot of people are now realizing that having "special" toys is in the realm of possibility, especially with the (now) widespread knowledge of the corporate method of acquiring NFA items.

I think a lot has to do w/ the expiration of the AWB. I know, I know; short barreled rifles are under NFA. However, not many people who had post ban ARs want to make a SBR if they can't have a threaded barrel and add a flash suppressor. Now they can, so maybe that has something to do with it. Just a guess really.

I think that has a lot to do with it......and John Noveskes' work seems to be a factor as well....

They fit great crosswise in the safe!

The AF stuff is super cool in my book, I’m thinking of doing a GUU-5P.

Call me a noob. But, what do you mean by "corporate method?"

When a corporation buys a machinegun, short barrelled rifle, AOW or any transferable NFA weapon there are no finger print cards or LEO sign off required. This because a "corporate person" has no finger prints or legal history. Corporate officer(s) do have to provide full disclosure as to their true identity but the big deal is a LEO cannot abuse their power to block transfers just because they personally disapprove of NFA in the hands of regular folks.

I always wondered, how do all the PMC companies purchase new fully automatic weapons (not to mention the myriad of explosives they carry)?
