So, I saw some pics from the shot show, and this one caught my attention. Anyone know more about it? Who is going to be selling this, or will this be along the lines of the Shrike?

I saw a specimen at the SAR show, it looks promising.

What Caliber?

Also, why not aluminum mag body?

Looks heavy and akward, I I don't see how you could mount a BUIS on there.

It's made by Tactical Innovations and I know a couple of hard core machinegunners that saw them at the SAR show and immediately put deposits down on it. Said it looked like a solid design (one of the gent's owns an American 180, and I trust him when he says he thinks its a good design). 375 round drums of .22 on an M16 is cool (not pretty, but cool nontheless).

Relax, man, no one is going to war with that thing. It's for FUN... remember fun, GI Joe?

It uses American 180 mags, which had clear bodies. If you ever get to look at them up close you'll see the plastic part lays on a steel plate and spring mechanism. There is little to no load on the plastic portion of the mag during firing, so I doubt wear would be an issue. Don't drop a loaded mag on concrete though. Tactical Innovations did just make a really nice all aluminum 30 round 10/22 magazine, so I suppose if there was enough interest in it they could make drum mags out of aluminum as well.

It's funny how some people can't remember that it's OK to have guns just for pure shooting, and not for tactical marpat BUIS MAD etc.

I thought they got into the 300+ realm as well? Hell, I don't own one so I'm most likely wrong. Half a box of .22 at one trigger pull is still kick ass!

½ a box is correct. I use Walmart Federal 550 rnd boxes and can load up 2 of my drums to 1 box.

Just a FYI if anyone is interested in these... I have to run a 22 bore snake down my AM180 after each drum. If I don't, the barrel is so leaded up its almost impossible to clean later. Don't let that stop you from buying one though. Its tons of fun.

C'mon! It's not a real AR-15 unless it has a BUIS, VLTOR Stock, and Vertical Grip! Anything else is just imitation!
