Every time I see a new Matt Rittman video in my feed, I know it’s going to be fire:

Flawless as usual.  If you’re not familiar with his work, make sure you click through and check out his other videos.  All the major firearms, expertly explained.

🚨 manufacturing vid alert 🚨.  My favorite:

I like the spooky vibe of the vid.  For those that don’t know.. if you shoot suppressed with a regular AR-15 charging handle installed, some of the gas takes the path of least resistance and decides to blast you in the face out of the little space between the charging handle and the upper receiver.  It’s unpleasant.  This Silencerco charging handle DEFEATS that gas 💨.

0:37 – When the CNC starts spittin that outhouse water, you know shit is about to go down.

Off the top of my head I don’t know how many other charging handles are forged rather than billet like this one.. but I sure do like billet.

By the end of the video I was throwing money at the screen like “GIVE ME IT.. I DON’T CARE WHAT IT COSTS” 😂.


They’ll really let anyone do anything with a laser nowadays 😫:

$4200 on Gunbroker.  The only thing that’s stopping me from logging off and throwing my computer out the window right now is the fact it’s still up for sale (no one bought it).

Once the Affliction / Ed Hardy bois see this, I’m sure it will disappear into a private collection faster than you can say CRINGE.



Asking “Should we ban the AR-15?”:

Talking to people an at Anti-Gun protest in LA:

Asking people if Gun free zones work:

Nothing groundbreaking and not super surprising.  Most people are misinformed, angry (for good reason), naive etc..

The YouTuber (James Klug) does a good job of not embarrassing the people, but just presenting the facts. I’ve rarely seen more cringe product shilling, but people have to pay the bills though I suppose.



Therapeutic walk through of the thought process / restoration process:

I added all 5 videos to the embedded youtube playlist.

An unreal amount of effort to restore a sub $1000 rifle, but definitely a good way to kill some time as a hobby.

He mentions it at the start of the first video; that some of the metals used in the gun including the receivers were definitely weakened due to the temperatures they were exposed to.  Because of that I’m not so sure this exercise is good for anything other than doing it just to do it when there are safety concerns, but to each his own.
