AR news...

The CMMG rimfire conversion kit I bought worked alright when I tried it out at the range today.

In other news, Bushhamster has released the pricing info on the much-hyped and long-awaited ACR, née Magpul Masada. The price is... er... somewhat higher than initial estimates. Some people are less than amused... (Video Contains Harsh Language, But Is Soda-Spraying Funny If You're A Black Rifle Geek.)

"It may as well have been made by H&K"

Oh man, I laughed so hard, I started coughing and crying.

"We'll get you a Noveske tomorrow."

What's funny is that I've said "Bushhamster" for so long that once I accidentally wrote it that way in the bound book. I wrote "Mossenberger" by accident a couple times, too.

Sean said...

and unfortunately this price is probably keeping it off my list - I like the concept, and love Magpul products... but when I can buy a second Noveske, or a top of the line LWRC piston gun AND optic for less than this...

ah well - at least you add snark to the subject miss!

Word verification "dingly" ummmm, yeah....

"I should have just gotten a Larue OBR, like Stalin!"

I don't keep up with all this black rifle stuff, but I guess I'm a gun nut, because that was the best Hitler scene I've seen yet.

lawlz. "I could punch a baby!"

On the third hand, $3k for a clean sheet of paper design without any military orders or 30 years of production to defray the engineering tab isn't out of line.

I now have teh hickups.

Funny of the magnitude not seen lately.

Best laugh I had all day....

Caleb said...

It ends with him saying "F my life". That was win.

Kevin said...

It is seldom that I literally laugh-out-loud, but I did with that one! Thanks!

It seems sending up that scene has become pop art.

H&K... heh.

Why would anyone call a rifle after a siege where, rather than fight, the defending garrison committed suicide?

Rick said...

HIllarious. Freakin' hillarious.

Can't... breathe..... keyboard... soaked...

D.W. Drang said...

That's the hardest I've laughed since Marcia Coakly conceded...

what movie was it from, BTW?

Robert said...

"It might as well have been made by H&K" got me. I started laughing hysterically.

Neutrino Cannon said...

The film the scene is taken from is called Downfall. Re-subtitling that scene is something of a youtube phenomenon:

My favorite youtube art form to date, however, is the literal music video:

Now that there was funny. The HK line actually made me lol. That's rare.

Of course I can laugh, I'm not really the target market. They wouldn't have gotten me at $1500, much less $3000.

John said...

Well, that made my morning. Thanks, Tam!

Glad your conversion works.

Happy birthday.

Shootin' Buddy

Tam said...

But it's not my birthday 'til Sunday! I'm still young for another two days! :D

Ben said...

What ammo have you tried with the CMMG conversion kit?

Tam said...

I was using Aguila Interceptor.

I'll do a detailed report tonight.

I was laughing so hard people came into my office to see what was going on. Had to play it for them as it's a gun friendy place.

I am glad I got the XCR a couple of years ago.

perlhaqr said...

Yeah, the H&K line made me laugh out loud, too. :)

Personally, I think I'm sticking with saving my pennies for an RFB.

Brilliant. Thanks for the warning to place beverages on a solid surface before watching.

Three grand? The old AR platform will be kicking for a good long time yet.

I think my favorite has to be
this surreal version

Chas S. Clifton said...

"should be selling rhododendrons." Terrific!

One of these days I will have to see Downfall, after all the mash-ups of that particular scene. How is the movie itself?

DirtCrashr said...

ROFL - "It's going to be twice that on Gunbroker!" I should have just bought a Laru OBR like Stalin! ROFLMAO - "Never trust a gun company that sounds like it should be selling rhododendrons!!! ROFLAMOX-n

I'm dyin' here. I have a Noveske.

Neutrino Cannon said...

Mr Clifton,

I've heard it's an excellent movie. FWIW it has a 91% on rotten tomatoes.
