New Compact AR-15 “Ribbon Spring” Magazine Concept



This new ultra compact AR-15 magazine concept was spotted at TheFirearmBlog, one of their readers from Australia came up with the design that makes use of a “ribbon spring” which unfortunately isn’t shown in the CAD drawings as it is not yet patented. The design is unique in that it curves to the right and sits to the side of the lower receiver. While this makes the magazine more compact, unless it can fit more than 30 rounds in this configuration then I don’t really see the benefit. Also, it looks like it would be difficult to do quick mag changes.

LaserLyte Zombie Killer Lasers, No Really



I kid you not, LaserLyte joined the zombie gun product fad with their Zombie Killer edition of lasers for Ruger and Kel-Tec .380 and 9mm pistols. They mount by pushing out the stock frame pins and mounted the laser with new threaded pins, which is a great concept. What’s not so great? The retarded green color. Because this will really make your gun look cool, not. At least it’s a functional product, unlike many of the zombie products at SHOT 2012.

Russia Plans To Destroy 4 Million Guns


Mosin Nagant Crate

According to Shotgunnews Russia’s Ministry of Defense plans on destroying 4 million surplus guns by the end of 2014. Supposedly Russia has stockpiles of about 16 million guns that are no longer in service with the Russian military. It wasn’t officially revealed what kinds of guns they intend to destroy, but word on the street is that they’re most likely Mosin Nagant rifles and carbines, SKS carbines, T33 Tokarev pistols, Nagant revolvers, AKM rifles, RPKs and PK machine guns. If it was up to me I’d sell these retired firearms to the American market or at the very least to some third world army. What a shame.

Primary Weapons Systems Triad Flash Suppressor



The AR-15 platform doesn’t have much recoil or muzzle flip, but there’s always room for improvement. At $60 the Triad from Primary Weapons Systems helps almost eliminate what little muzzle rise the AR-15 has. This in turn helps with faster more accurate follow-up shots. The PWS Triad redirects gases exiting the muzzle with its unique internal design and elongated tine cut. Still a doubter? PWS believes in their product so much they’re offering their customers a money back guarantee, if you don’t like it send it back for a full refund. Check it out in action below, for more info visit Primaryweapons.com.

Shotgun Disguised As Water Gun


While this isn’t the only case where a shotgun was hidden in a water gun, it looks like more and more criminals are catching wind of this mod.

The Kel-Tec KSG shotgun is a pretty compact shotgun, but Kel-tec just had to make it even shorter.
