Itt:snake oil
>>
>>28650881
I don't really see what is "snake oil" about a side charging AR. There is nothing fraudulent or falsely claimed about what they do. The charging handle has now been moved to the side. Just because you don't like it doesn't make it not a charging handle on the side of the rifle.

Fuck off retard faggot

It's mounted on the acog that's on my AR.

I'm not digging the chin weld I have to use to use it though. I'll probably get my G19 slide milled so I can move it over to there...

I'd say gun solvent more so, you can clean carbon out of a gun with hot water.

>>
>>28651665
The biggest upgrade in semi-auto ARs from anti walk pins are the stronger pins when using centerfire pistol caliber blowback carriers (ie 9mm ARs). They have a lot more force applied via the ramp to the hammer to assist in retarding blowback which beats up the hammer pin.

I really, really wonder if the ATF would be able to fuck you over if you have a normal AR with a 16" barrel and a Pistol AR with a short barrel.

They could fly the 'constructive intent' or 'constructive possession' even if you have both uppers on their respective lowers.

In the Old West, "doctors" would sell a magic cure-all potion to retarded people in small towns.

Think Red Dead Redemption, people would buy it to cure everything from STD's to cancers, and some were sold as "snake oils". They were some bullshit elixir that did nothing.

>why is /k/ retards

Does this surprise you?

>>28659553
People have been selling snake oil as a "cure all" for hundreds of years. In 1917, someone actually tested a brand called "Stanley's Snake Oil", and it was found to contain no actual snake oil, just a bunch of random common shit. The guy was sued and "snake oil" became synonymous with fraudulent cures and miracle products.

A good example of snake oil in the gun industry would be Jesse James' whacky ass suppressor he started advertising a few years back. He wouldn't let anyone test it, but guaranteed it lowered an AR-15's report to 78dB... which is lower than the sound of just the gun cycling. He also claimed it produced NO heat signature, and boosted velocity by 100m/s.
