conspiracy

Check out this rifle from the movie Echelon Conspiracy:

Oh where to begin….

Should we start with the fact that it is an AK / AR-15 hybrid (We’ll call it the AKAR-15) … which has an AK bolt carrier and charging handle, but yet has an AR-15 style forward assist inside an AR-15 style A2 upper (devoid of a charging handle).  Not to mention it has both the AR-15 and the AK mag releases, but seems to be packing an AR-15 magazine in the magwell.

Maybe its just the perspective, but it looks to me like the rear sight is much higher than the front one.   Also, nice touch on keeping most of the AK rear sight assembly in the mix, before integrating it into the AR-15 handguard.

Also, Look at how low down the magazine is!  In order to chamber a cartridge on this fake gun, it would have to travel up what looks to be about 2 inches.

Supposedly the movie was filmed in Europe, and it was easier to chop up two separate guns and combine them to make a non working gun, rather than get an actual AK or AR-15.  Do they not have realistic airsoft replicas in Europe they could have used?

I have no idea what the movie actually is called , but the white actor looks to be Matthew Fox (from the TV show Lost).  Anyone know who the other actor is? or what movie this is from?

UPDATE 1: Adam noted that the Glock actually has a 22LR conversion upper on it.

UPDATE 2: Priest pointed out that the one actor is Ving Rhames (which makes the other Edward Burns), and Rob notified me that the movie is Echelon Conspiracy.

Thanks for helping out guys!

The anti-government Hutaree group, which described itself as a ‘Christian warrior’ group, allegedly planned to kill a police officer, then attack others during the funeral.

Hutaree Militia website – HERE

They have 4 videos up on YouTube (HERE).  For the most part, the videos just look like some average guys having a bit of fun by emulating a military style of dress and training.  There are a couple of things I raised my eyebrows at, one being the burning of the UN flag in the “Huratree Z-01” video.

Taking a look at their website, under the About Us section there are definitely signs of religious fanaticism.  Is there anything threatening though? Definitely not as far as I could see.

I always wonder in situations like this what the actual evidence was that they were planning an attack.  Perhaps someone that was scared of the training they were doing, and the views they have, and decided to try to get them into trouble? Maybe not.. but that definitely seems like a possibility.

If an attack actually will actually be prevented by arresting these people, I applaud a job well done.  Though, if this is a case of a group of people getting into trouble with the law because their views and practices differ from mainstream society, that is very troubling.
