magnum

A few days ago I blogged about the British Army sniper that set a new kill distance record with an Accuracy International L115A3.

 

Well it looks like the British are breeding Universal soldier types, because today some more impressive shooting was in the UK news:

A British sniper shot dead five Taliban gunmen in just 28 seconds to save the lives of comrades walking into an ambush.

The marksman felled the rebels from more than a mile away as they prepared to attack troops on foot patrol in Afghanistan.

The corporal  –  whose identity cannot be revealed for security reasons  –  has killed a record 37 enemy fighters during a four-month tour of duty.

Full Story – HERE

The phones at Accuracy International are likely ringing off the hook lately.

If I were British I’d  have done this in reaction to the article:

By gluing on magnum rifle primers!

Pretty awesome upgrade for the low price of primers, if all you have for a gun is an air rifle.

I wonder if you need to shoot at a hard surface to set it off, or if small varmints would cause the primer to ignite as well? :grin:  I know some primers are pretty sensitive.

I wish I would have known about this upgrade as a kid back in my daisy air rifle days.
 

A YouTube demonstration:

The pellet used in the video is a .22 pellet, with the open end of the primer facing forward.

I don’t know if “regular” .177 caliber pellets would work as well. The small rifle magnum primers may be too big. I don’t reload, but I’m sure smaller primers are available if needed.

This is non photoshopped, completely to scale:


Actually its a Glock key chain, but still pretty funny.

I’m sure Magnum Research sells a lot of Desert Eagles in general, and probably even a lot of this model (TG-TS Titanium Gold Tiger Stripes):

The Desert Eagle just doesn’t do it for me.  It’s bulky, incredibly heavy, and very expensive.  Yea you can get it in the big boy .50AE caliber, but I don’t really see the purpose of that either.  You are supposed to be using your handgun as a first method of defense, or as they say to “get to your rifle”.  I know it’s a good gun, but I just think that there are better options for most applications.

I saw this the other day on the internet and I thought, what a perfect companion for owners of a tiger striped desert eagle:

Yea it’s just a photoshop… but really, “if you build it they will come” I think definitely holds true again in this case.

You can check out the Desert Eagles over at Magnum Research – HERE

Being a Minnesota company as well, I definitely support Magnum Research and would like a few of their other guns.  That new .380 Micro Desert eagle is intriguing, and they have some nice looking rifles based off the Remington 700 platform which I am definitely interested in.

Vancouver Sun Full Story – HERE

The ETF was responding to calls of a man in an office with a gun — tipped off by a nosy neighbour whose apartment overlooks Bell’s office. The neighbour thought he saw a real pistol.

Toronto police said the response wasn’t an over-reaction.

God forbid someone besides a police officer would have a gun at work.

I was actually over at Brickgun the other day checking out their different LEGO guns, so when I got wind of this story I knew exactly where he got his LEGO gun when I saw the picture in the article.

From Video:  “They cuffed me and threw me against the wall”

Was that really necessary?

I’d hate to think how they would respond to a bunch of kids playing airsoft in the park, there would probably be casualties.

To purchase one of these menacing looking guns head over to Brickgun – HERE

The Glock type model from the story is called a “Semi-Auto with Mag”… it consists of 277 LEGO pieces and is $69.99 + Shipping

There are also Desert Eagles, Mac-11’s, Beretta 92, and H&K MP5 type LEGO kits availble for purchase.

Purchase at your own risk if you live in Canada :P
