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!

179 Department of Homeland Security weapons were lost between 2006 and 2008 — some falling into the hands of criminals — after officers left them in restrooms, vehicles and other public places, according to an inspector general report.  This is mainly because officers did not properly secure them.

Unfortunately this type of loss is always going to happen.  DHS is a huge agency, which makes me wonder exactly what percentage 180 guns equates to?  Do other large agencies such as the FBI have a similar number of guns lost every year?

I am assuming there were no repercussions at all for officers that lost their firearms, because according to the article DHS doesn’t even have a policy in place regarding the control of firearms.
