Default Mishaco Cheats On The AK47 With Not 1 But 2 AR15s

At least they were high-class call girls....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGaWtpi4Jek


Here we look at and compare 2 different civilian versions of the M4A1 'SOCOM' AR15 carbine.

First is the Colt LE6920HBPW, and second is the FNH M4 Military Collector Edition FN15.

Both have HBAR profile barrels, with a pinned and welded A2 birdcage flash hider.
The FN's is 14.7" with a standard FH, while the Colt's is 14.5" with an extended FH.
Also, the Colt has grenade launcher flats, while the FN does not (this is a much bigger deal in AR15 circles than you might think).

For more similarities and differences, please check out our video.
This is only the first part. Part #2 has already been filmed, where in we take the Colt to the range for some fun...i mean 'testing.' It just needs to be edited and will get uploaded very soon also.

Now if you'll excuse me, i have to go surprise my SGL31 with chocolates and vodka because it hasn't spoken with me for nearly a week ever since I spent the whole day with those dirty, dirty AR15s. I mean, they do crap where they eat afterall! grose! I should be ashamed I know, but....

hehehe

cheers,
Jay & Misha,

I’ve always been a fan of heavy barrels. I don’t see the downside of them whether you’re on the range or using it on a two way range.

Atlantic, hey takes one to know one right? hehehe

And how did you know I was running for office? I'd be a great leader, an iron fisted tyrant of course, but one like in the Terry Pratchett books.
Fun fact, in my 6th grade class we had elections and i was elected President after the holidays, with my best friend as my VP.
But the other students were getting bored of democracy and voting and all that, so i just took over as dictator and when the next elections came around in March, i ended up with 99% of the votes...good to be loved hehe.
I took all the money, and reissued new bills made by myself. My VP was my enforcer as he was a good footballer (got to be great in high school as it happens).
And i had the pissants...i mean citizens, doing things like cleaning the bathrooms and halls as punishment for disobideance...i mean crimes.
The teacher let it go on too as she thought it would teach them an important lesson about the whole democratic process and why we should all care. She only limited me when i thought 1 student should clean the toilets....with a tooth brush. Being a good sport though, she did let him take a few swipes with it before calling it off lol.

What was i saying again? Oh yeah, vote for me come November!

Nothing wrong with a dirty black gun review...might even be able to teach the Russian some new things. Nice to see Colt come out with some new things to hopefully stay relevant.

Frankly I think many of us have been buying more AR than AK lately.

Cool review! I just picked up an LE marked 6920 and a Daniel Defense RIS II rail to make my own SOCOM 2 clone. Just have to get the Match rear sight. The really cool part is I'll have less than $800 in my clone. I got super lucky with finding deals on parts. Paid $450 for the 6920!

Man, ARs are such garbage these days.

Sounds like you're describing the ultra rare Jizzybutt Costa Beard Overmatch edition by Dildo Defense Dynamics Tactical. Legend has it that it comes with bespoke fde Magpul furniture and punisher skulls right out of the forge, and it won't run unless a l33t opr8z0r thumb over bores the forend in a back and forth motion with frog lube for 20 seconds before each range day.

Good move.

Anybody who can afford it financially should REALLY pick up a couple of quality AR rifles right now. I would say a 20-inch barrel model and a mid-length model.

You KNOW, deep down in your heart, that the liberals will eventually ban us having them.

And decent European-made AKs are rapidly vaporizing too as far as that goes. Trade sanctions are killing importation of all of the good ones. About all we have left to choose from are the Romanian WASRs.

And IF you have basic gunsmithing skills you can build your own AR from mil-spec parts for around just $400 or so......AT THE MOMENT.

Cool to see so many board members acquiring ARs, AKs, magazines and ammo.

Still perfectly legal to do so at present too.

Just don't do any illegal mods and you will be GTG.

Misha, I do not mean to hijack your scandalous affair but I watched your P14/M1917 video today. Of the two rifles which one do you prefer or is it an equal like?

Hey Millenial Liberal. Not everyone is going to agree with you in life. This is discussion forums. Which means opinions. Doesn't mean people are trolls. I love Ar's.

Has nothing to do with you not agreeing with the way the ARs look above. Anyone that sees your other posts can see you enjoy trolling. Knock yourself out.

Personally, I don't blame you one bit for spending some quality time with those two weapons. I switched my outlook on rifles a couple of years ago, and went from being an AK only guy who reluctantly fired an AR for work qualifications, to an AR guy who occasionally takes his AK out to look at but rarely uses it anymore.

As for the configuration of those particular rifles, I honestly like a heavy barrel on my carbine. Coming from the AK world, I don't notice the weight. What I do notice, is that it takes a bit longer to heat up, and that my double taps seem to be easier to control with a heavy barrel.

Having gone through a lot of different accessories trying to find what fits me best, I have found that a simple carbine with a standard M4 stock, standard M4 double heat shielded hand guards, standard front sight post, heavy barrel, standard grip, single point sling, and a quality rear iron sight works best. I'm not opposed to running an Aimpoint PRO on it, but I prefer my irons most of the time.

I look at some of the newest configurations of AR15 rifles, and what I see is a hobby set for guys who can't help but spend money to remain in the cool kids club. Some of the trends may be useful, but for me... The basic weapon works just fine. I'll leave the fancy add ons for the youngsters to play with.

All of my AR15s have front sight posts. I prefer my 20" with plastic hand guards and iron sights. There's nothing I've asked it to do that it didn't excel at. The only reason I got a 16" was shits and giggles. And yeah it's got a rail, but I've just never needed to hang anything on it. And it's got a magpul stock, but not a crazy fancy one with quick detach swivels and shit. And it's got a front sight post.

Yeah you can barbie up your AR to your heart's content, but not everyone needs $3,000 of bling on their rifle to get the job done.

Itís not about bling. Itís about usefulness and making you better at shooting. Faster. More options. Itís why great shooter like Garand Thumb has his rifles setup the way they are. He could careless weather some guys like you who donít have money think all it is is bling. I get it.

I made due in the army with good ole iron sights. Guess I wasn't high speed enough to have the fancy bling. Nothing wrong with irons and not dropping a couple grand on accessories

In today's AR market you can have the earlier pattern fixed stock, front sight assembly etc., or the later "flat top" extendable stock set up for little or no price difference. Back up sights and holo sights are affordable.
A decent piece of grass for $125- $300 or the higher end at $450_$1450 glass.. All available as well as other ergos like extended charging handles, releases etc.

A $450 assembly or $4500 assembly AR at one's pocketbook or choice of "stuff".

I do, I do! I have personally witnessed an A4 get dropped off the back of an LMTV, and I swear the first part of the firearm to hit the marching surface was the front sight post. I still managed to qualify expert with that rifle. I doubt any of the folding BUIS would be that robust.

And yes, the next thing to hit the marching surface after the rifle was me! AR iron sights are the best iron sights I have ever used. They don't really interfere with optics either.

It ain't about money. Why do you gear snobs always assume anyone who disagrees with you is broke? My truck probably cost more than you make in a year. I've got the money if I chose to spend it, but I don't need super high speed low drag gear to get the job done.

Well, youíre most likely right. I have a $6500 truck. I see no reason to spend anymore on a dumb vehicle that just loses value. But, if you chose to blow it on that, that is your right
