So I think it is safe to say my cousin owns one of the biggests ARs in the world!  It's about 10 ft long. The BCG itself is a little bit over a foot long!  It appears to be a .90 caliber.

In case you don't know, those were used as training tools during Army basic training (in the days before powerpoint) to show new Soldiers how the rifle functions.  

I was in a gun store in Richmond last month that had a BAR of one of these, really cool.  I should have taken a picture.

Yeah I knew about its training purpose.  The cool thing is that everything functions just like the real thing, except it doesn't go BANG!

I think I've seen a 1919 in similar scale.

Well it's only hanging by some nylon rope!

That rope has a working load limit of 225 lbs.

There's one in the surplus shop near where I work. Dunno if they'd sell it or not...

Badass. A local pawnshop had an M1 Garand one a few years ago.

Blackwater has one of those. Somewhere there's a picture of me shouldering it (extremely briefly)

No civilian should own a gun that big!



I have always wanted one of those for a man cave

Damn JellyBelly, you are really competitive.

We had one of those in our bay in basic. First week, a soldier left his M16 in his bunk. He was saddled with that as a replacement for 3 days. And he still had to sling his weapon as well.

let costa have a crack at it:

He would tell you how it has a tactical advantage over a standard AR and show you how to shoot it first slow then fast.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 7:13:51 PM EDT


I have no idea how he even handles that rifle without a super light Rogers Super-Stoc.

Imagine having to clear a room with that.
