Made back when machinists wore ties to work. I wonder what they would have thought about a gun maker wearing an apron, pink shirt and a dew-rag...

"The Greatest Bullpup Ever Devised"

Yes, I fit inside of a gym bag!

Not as pretty as the M1 Garand, but just as powerful, accurate and only 26" overall length as opposed to 43" Garand.  Also, robust, over-engineered, super easy to service, parts are readily available and you can shove a 50 round drum, 32 round box or 20 round box in it as opposed to 8-round clips.

They'd probably expect him to serve'em coffee and donuts.

Ok, so you could buy 3 cobbled together Garands out of the few parts that are remaining from over 75 years ago for what you would have to pay for the K&M M17s 308. I admit, 3 guys with Garands will be more effective than one guy with a 308 bullpup.    You still can't carry one in a gym bag!

YOu know. A funy thing happened once I started reading this thread. FB wanted me to join some M-1 group. Coincidence?

 

There is some seriously fucked up Next-Level Shit goin' on w/ the internet.

 

That happened to a buddy of mine... from a Phone Call discussion.

So are you telling me if they make some sort of gun control, it's gonna stop you from having one? The way I see it, it just limits THEM from having one..... Is that such a bad thing? LOLOLOL

 

The Lemming Model - is a good one.

 

Ha!

 

Stacked high and deep w/ Liberty...
