GSG .22LR STG-44 Now Shipping



The remake of the WWII STG-44 chambered in .22LR from GSG is now available, we posted a few pictures of it from the 2012 SHOT Show a while back. I even got the opportunity to shoot it at the 2012 Media Day at the range, and I have to have say it was pretty darn cool. It had a pretty good amount of heft to it, you couldn’t tell it was a .22 when you first pick it up. It felt great to shoot and it was plenty accurate.

It features real wood furniture, real metal parts (not sure how much of the rifle is actually metal vs plastic as yet) and it comes in a cool handmade wood crate. Based off the German Sturmgewehr, it weights in at 9.5lbs and has a 17.2″ barrel with an over all length of 37.2″. They will be available with either a 10 round or 25 round capacity magazine and retail for just under $600. Check out AmericanTactical.us for more info.

Omega and James Bond Bullet Promo Fail



The above image is a screen capture from a promo animation on Omega Watches homepage for a commemoration watch for the new James Bond movie. Now I don’t expect most people to be as knowledgable as myself, or you my faithful readers, when it comes to firearms. But really? You’d think at least one person at Omega or at least MGM would know better. Maybe 007 throws his ammo in the next movie? Check it out for yourself at www.omegawatches.com or in the video below.

The KGB Lipstick Gun



Spotted over at GizMag, this gun hidden in a lipstick case was issued by the KGB in the mid-60’s during the Cold War. The James Bond-like gadget  fires a single 4.5mm cartridge, it’s on display at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.

Spinning Sawblade Shooting Crossbow



In case a chainsaw mounted to an AK-47 wasn’t crazy enough, Patrick Priebe created a pretty sinister looking weapon. He rigged up a saw blade shooting crossbow complete with a laser sight that launches spinning 50mm steel buzz saw blades. It may not be a 7.62×39 round, but I still wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end.

Dana White’s Poor Trigger Discipline



UFC President Dana White Tweeted the above picture today, it looks like the coaches on this seasons The Ultimate Fighter get to lob grenades during their coaches challenge. Must be nice.

You know what’s not so nice? Mr. White’s poor trigger discipline. He claims to be a pro gun guy and a gun owner, but he goes and bans gun related sponsors from the UFC and shows the world how not to pose with a firearm. I sure hope it was unloaded too. Stay classy Dana.
