  1. It is a twisted story. AR-10 -> AR-15 ->XM-16 The Air Force fielded the AR-15 (eventually GAU's) while everyone else went XM-16. The Air Force (and Stoner) didn't think Forward Assist was necessary, hence the split. That is the "major" difference between the original (slick side) AR-15 and the XM-16 (there were a few other smaller updates like gates and stuff). If you look at some of the weapons our "advisors" used early on in Vietnam, along with the original Colt Sporter, you will see that they are slick-sides. https://thecoltar15resource.com/2020/12/20/december-1964-shooting-times-article-on-the-colt-sporter/ There are even original military lowers out there stamped both AR-15 AND XM-16, but that was all during the early transitions. However, the early AR-15 mentioned above is not the same as the "civilian" AR-15's, with the big difference being the lowers are cut differently to accommodate full auto capability. The semi-only cuts (high shelf vs low shelf vs full cut) were never used by the military as they cannot accommodate the parts needed for select fire function. Edit, I should add. If one looks, the different cuts are available. But the point was that the "civilian' AR-15's were mostly semi-auto only. However, there were full-auto AR-15's available to the public. While "legal" at the time, I'm not sure if that was Colt's intention or not, being that they were also selling their Semi-auto only Sporter. It is a fascinating history. \ LOL, look at those EARLY charging handles on the original AR's.
  2. The good news is this nonsense makes it that much easier to get rid of the FOID.
  3. PICA update - Number of Individuals Completing a Disclosure: 8,143 Total Disclosures: 24,381 Firearms Disclosures: 15,877 Accessory Disclosures: 8,335 Ammunition Disclosures: 169 Up to a whopping 1/3rd of a percent. Stay strong.
  4. I thought denial of a Constitutional right is always irreparable harm?
  5. If the Naperville AWB gets struck down as unconstitutional, what happens to the city next door? The city of Aurora has had an AWB on the books for decades. I don't think it is enforced, but I assume it goes bye-bye. Same with Crook County and a few others.
  6. I was half-way listening to it. It sounds like +$7M in indirect contributions from a specific source. I wasn't fully clear on that source, but I think it was someone who leads up anti-gun fundraising. Maybe someone else can chime in with a clearer picture.
  7. They got a big win (injunction) on Forced Reset Triggers, so that is a good way to get on the map (again?). I heard they had a bit of a spotty past.
  8. Just thinking out loud here. 🙃 Let us say that a pair of friends both own two AR's. They decide to split the cost of two LAW bolts. One of the friends installs the LAW bolts on their two AR's. The other friends pulls their gas tubes and re-installs their gas blocks backwards on their two AR's. Friend #1 no longer has any use for his original bolts, so he either destroys them, sends them out of state, or gives them to someone that could legally own spare bolts.....such as a person that registered their AR....or maybe someone that made their weapon single shot by some other method than LAW bolt. Friend #2 no longer has any use for his gas tubes, so he either destroys them, sends them out of state, or gives them to someone that could legally own spare gas tubes.....such as a person that registered their AR....or maybe someone that made their weapon single shot by some other method than gas tube removal.
  9. When ask to confirm who you are, you have to say "that is a name I have not heard in a very long time".
