Today’s article is not about “assault rifles” as you might think of them.
You’ll hear nothing of Stoner’s first black rifles designs, the STG-44, or the M1 Carbine. No, today we discuss firearms that will take the angst and ire of gun-hating hoplophobes and safe-space needing liberals to an entirely new level.
Yes, today we’ll be talking about the high-capacity weapons in use in the days before Jamestown was settled in Virginia and Shakespeare was still alive.
We’re talking about the so-called “Lewis and Clark Air Rifle” (Girandoni Air Rifle), Kalthoff Repeater, and the Belton Flintlock. And for the record, “superposed load” is not a category or tag on naughty movie sites.
These are guns that do not quite fit the idea of a Second Amendment written “just for single-shot firearms”.
The RPK is a gas-operated air-cooled weapon capable of both semiautomatic and automatic fire. Its heavy chrome-lined barrel is unable to be changed, severely limiting its sustained rate of fire. The RPK fires from a closed, rotating bolt. The stamped steel receiver is similar to that used on the AKM. The RPK can even interchange many parts with the AKM. This squad automatic weapon is fitted with a built-in bipod of steel.
Some practical common sense advice.
If you are going to carry a gun to protect your life and the life of your loved one’s, don’t be a cheap idiot: spend the money for a quality firearm and some quality training!
