So they are making their own AR15's ?

1. "Program established by volunteers..."                 Uh huh..... "volunteers"... More likely a poorly disguised front for foreign agencies to train fighters. $45k a month doesn't come out of nowhere. Did they say if these guys were Army regulars or are they partisans?

2. I like that they reload the rounds for their sniper school using a single stage press. Many of the guys here have one in their garage. The 2nd Amendment is a beautiful thing...

3. Does anyone know what type of rifle they use, or what it is based on? Looks like an AR10 type of platform, but the buffer tube is very short.

Yeah, I noticed the English lettering on the bolt action rifle stock
And what appeared to be a green RCBS single stage press.

I don't mind if the U.S. is covertly supporting a resistance to a covert Soviet invasion.

No, that's just how objective reporting used to sound like.

 



Now it's all pundits with their tones trying to sway you to their POV.

I seriously doubt they are making AR's from scratch there.  The part the guy put in the tumbler looked like an upper receiver blank (not forged) though.

There were two rifles in the vid, the other one appeared to be some sort of AR, but it looked like it had a very short buffer tube.

Internet rules for threads about the war in Ukraine:
a) Question any article/story positive about ukraine = russian troll
b) Question any article/story negative about russia = russian troll
c) Imply that eastern ukraine militias do NOT have foreign support = russian troll
d) Imply that western ukraine militias DO have foreign support = russian troll

Careful. Seems you may have violated (d) by thinking too much

If it was a front for training run by foreign agencies, the guy would never be on camera willingly, and you wouldn't ever hear about it until a decade or two later.

$45k/month is almost negligible, especially when you factor rations, medical, shelter, gas, etc.

No these guys are 99% local volunteers with a few European/Georgian/Chechian's that have blood fueds against Russia.
2. I like that they reload the rounds for their sniper school using a single stage press. Many of the guys here have one in their garage. The 2nd Amendment is a beautiful thing...
Reloading rifle and pistol is illegal there for now, I hear they are going to change a lot of the firearm laws. Actually there gun laws are not bad and volunteers more or less are immune from prosecution even when they have captured heavy weapons

Zbroyar is a local manufacturer that produces great rifles on par with a lot of US guns (use krieger and lothar blanks). They also produce B&T APR and galil clones in ukraine. SVD is standard marksman rifle for army but civi guns are used a lot in the war. Internal troops are getting IMI licensed galils and tavors

Nighforce, S&B, Khales, Meopta, Valdada, Zeiss are all readily available there. Oh yeah the army and volunteers make about 300-500$ a month. They haven't been paid in 6 months. They aren't doing this for money. In contrast the Russian soldiers/mercenaries get 4-5K a month minimum. Some of the captured Russian paramilitaries from Chechnya had 50K on them, heroin, gold, and designer amphetamines laced with demerol and lithium. They call it the zombie cocktail. Watch some of the videos online of the separatists and look at their pupils and skin. They drug those guys up before throwing them into the grinder. Ive got a lot or respect for the ukrop's and what they have accomplished flat broke, with a command chain that was rife with Russia agents, and almost no international support. Building drones and AR's from scratch in their mothers basements. I know quiet a few guys fighting over there and one that was killed. The Chechan vostok guys cut his ears off, his dick off, and shoved it in his throat. I hope they kill every last one of those invading bastards.

More likely sent from Canada. After all, we have a large number of folks of Ukrainian descent and the stock is made here.

Saw a guy assemble the upper and lower of an AR platform together while simultaneously pushing the buffer and spring into the tube with the rear of the bolt carrier.

Maybe they're making their own AR lowers and skipped the buffer retaining detent or maybe the guy just has an unusual way of assembling them.

I also like the sand cutter ar10 bolt in the vid. Zbroyar makes really nice rifles that are actually reasonably priced. I think that one rifle might be a steyr action. I saw a lot of Steyr, Sako, and remington bolt rifles over there. The gun stores sell just about every firearm under the sun, mostly high end military stuff like SAN, IMI, PGN, B&T, Sig and custom hunting rifles from europe like blasers and sauers but they don't have any real import restrictions or firearm limits for those with cards. Most ammo is pricey though.

Anybody get an ID on the ammo they were making? Was it 7,62 X 51 ?
