    Hey folks, who needs an 80% lower when you can whittle yer own outta a 2x4? That AK grip outta make it more reliable than your city folk AR contraption, and if you wanna go tacticool you can paint that sucker black!

    That 1x Home Depot scope is mighty fine, too!

    You talkin' 'bout that special forces version where they leave the bark on? That's supposed to be a secret.

    That one in the OP's pictures is still missing some parts, so no idea if it really works, but given that the top end is where all the "work" happens, and the bottom end is just there to hold the trigger and mag's I can see the possibility!

    Interesting and it carries the Saturday night special to a whole new level. Actually becomes a straight pull bolt action once you do away with the gas tube and that raises a lot of problems for those in the gun control world. Reading the referred to article and they referenced a home built break action 12 ga that looks nice and would work. If carried out to the old H & R single shot concept, I think it would fire rifle bullets and with a nc milling machine and rifled barrels, you could probably make practice or hand out rifles, single shot, for very little money and less paper work or stock components for the SHTF. While not in the class of Mr Single Shot builds, it has 1/10 the complexity, and I would love to hear what the technically minded on the blog think of the safety aspects of the construction of the break action. Not having access to SCRIBD. I have not down loaded the drawings of the 12 ga.

    I have no doubts that this was manufactured in Alabama or Tennessee. It just has a certain "Bubba" characteristic.

    I'm kinda surprised they didn't get a hinge from the hardware store and make it a folder...

    Also I'm not so sure it would have been all that hard to make it semi automatic. Drill a hole for the buffer and use the right size pipe as a liner. You would have to extend the safety, and the trigger group appears standard.

    He also would have needed to drill a gas port, as the barrel he had didn't have one. That was part of the reason for him going bolt action.
    But you are right. If you have a semi- upper laying around, it wouldn't be difficult to adapt.

    The anti gun liberaltards won't know it's a bolt action, even if you tell them it's a bolt action they still won't have any compression of what that entails. All they see is an assault rifle, made with a 2x4 lol.
