I had a bunch of parts laying around and got a great deal on a 14.5″ barrel, so I made this. I took an A2 birdcage and turned down the diameter of the wrench flat area so that it would fit under the front sight base. This also hid the pin and weld of the flash hider quite nicely. Now I have a snub nosed Dissipator. Enjoy:
My carbine Scarlett got a significant upgrade the other day. I purchased one of my shop’s super thin keymod rail system and went about overhauling my upper. Here she is:
This brings the overall weight of my carbine to 6.15 lbs. I got her sighted in and checked for proper functioning yesterday with my son. We tried out my new steel target and also annihilated some Pomello fruits, lots of fun.

A Russian inventor has developed an eighty round 9x18mm magazine for the Makarov PM pistol. Hewrites (in Russian) that the Makarov is still in use by police in Russia not because they cannot afford new pistols but because the Makarov is genuinely loved. He says the problem with them is that standard magazine only holds eight rounds and extended magazines only hold up 12 rounds. Twelve rounds is not a lot by todays standards, especially when you consider that the 9x18mm is about 30% less powerful than a 9x19mm NATO. His solution was to develop a drum magazine that holds eighty rounds.
