Check his vids... He's firing some of the 'usual suspects', as well as some you've likely never seen function before. Look in the 'More from Armietiro' section... If you are a collector or are interested in the world's diverse pool of small arms, it's well worth it!!!

Start with an MP5K:

ARMI E TIRO is the oldest, most famous and recognized firearms enthusiasts' monthly magazine.
it covers the firearms world at 360°, from LE to tactical to laws research. it's just like Guns & Ammo down there in the US.

they have their own connections though. they may be invited to restricted guns from the Army, or get some abroad ( Switzerland, that's not so far )
and that's the way they get through so many cool guns.

Italian law completely denies ownership of select fire weapons to civilians. it's just one of the stupid laws we have down here,
considering that if i may want an AK47, i may just ask some guy from the Balkans...

I like the comments on the Galil video....firing a 5.56 out of an AK chambered for 7.62 is evidently "80% effective".

in the hands of mafia guys and armored truck robbers yeah, they're pretty common.
the average law-abiding citizen has no use for such beat-up, illegal crap.

Sorry, but the oldest one was "Diana Armi": in 2006 they celebrated the Centenary...

Now Diana Armi and Tac Armi (the latter more specialized in Military and Historical weapons...) merged and formed a new gun magazine in the same publishing house of Diana Armi, giving birth to "Armi e Munizioni", that is (literally translating it....) "Guns & Ammo" the italian way...
