” MasterPiece Arms is continuing the development of their new and original MPAR series of rifles with the latest edition chambered for 6.8mm Remington SPC. A capable hunting cartridge, the rifle is finished to suit with a Vista Camo hydrographic pattern.
The company plans to introduce more 6.8 SPC MPAR rifles in the future with ATACS camo and matte black finishes, as they have done with their MPAR 5.56 rifles.
Like the other MPAR rifles, it is a carbine with a 16-inch barrel, adjustable telescopic, folding buttstock, modular free-floating handguard and short-stroke gas piston operating system. The hand guard has fixed Picatinny rails on the top and bottom but can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs with optional side rails. By default the hand guard is fit with quick-detach sling points on both side to match the QD sling points on the stock.”

” The U.S. Park Police has lost track of thousands of handguns, rifles and machine guns in what a government watchdog agency concluded is the latest example of mismanagement on a police force trusted to protect millions of visitors to the city’s iconic monuments.
There is no indication that police guns got into the hands of criminals, but the Office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Department of the Interior warned that the Park Police might not know if they had. In a scathing report, the authors said there is “credible evidence of conditions that would allow for theft and misuse of firearms, and the ability to conceal the fact if weapons were missing.”
“Commanders up to and including the chief of police have a lackadaisical attitude toward firearms management,” wrote Mary L. Kendall, the deputy inspector general. “Historical evidence indicates that the indifference is a product of years of inattention to administrative detail.”
Investigators took an unusually harsh tone in part because they said similar problems found in 2008 and 2009 were never fixed — a symptom of “the decade-long theme of inaction and indifference” of top Park Police managers. The Washington Post obtained an advance copy of the report.”

” In CT you have to get a permit just to purchase a firearm.
In December state police, who are responsible for processing the background checks for those permits, had a fairly normal backlog of around 1,000 pending background checks.
Now, just over 4 months later, and following the Newtown shooting and the passage of extremely strict new gun laws, that backlog has grown to over 60,000, an increase of around 6,000%
There are several reasons for the massive increase. One, part of the new gun control package passed by CT last month included an “effective immediately” provisions which now requires a background check for rifle and shotgun sales as well as handguns.”
” The M16 rifle, officially designated Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16, is the United States military version of the AR-15 rifle. The rifle was adapted for semi-automatic, three-round burst, and full-automatic fire. Colt purchased the rights to the AR-15 from ArmaLite, and currently uses that designation only for semi-automatic versions of the rifle. The M16 fires the 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge. The rifle entered United States Army service and was deployed for jungle warfare operations in South Vietnam in 1963, becoming the U.S. military’s standard service rifle of the Vietnam War by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle in that role. The U.S. Army retained the M14 in CONUS, Europe, and South Korea until 1970. Since the Vietnam War, the M16 rifle family has been the primary service rifle of the U.S. armed forces.
The M16 has also been widely adopted by other militaries around the world. Total worldwide production of M16s has been approximately 8 million, making it the most-produced firearm of its caliber. In 2010, the M16 began to be phased out in the U.S. Army and is being supplemented by the M4 carbine, which is itself a shortened derivative of the M16A2.
The history of the m16 that held the 5.56mmx45mm round. Talks about the development of the firearm through the vietnam era to modern day.”
“ Serbu Firearms, a manufacturer of bolt-action and semi-automatic .50 caliber sniper rifles, is refusing to sell their wares to the NYPD. Their reason, of course, is that owing to unfair gun laws, they will not support law enforcement in New York.
Serbu is one of almost 150 companies that has officially refused to sell to law enforcement in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act, the controversial gun control package that has been met with scorn by gun owners across the nation.
The company posted the NYPD’s inquiry as well as their refusal to their Facebook page, with names omitted.
Company founder Mark Serbu said, “Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.”
If you want to let them know what you think yea or nay, of just “like” them, head over to the Serbu Firearms Facebook page.”
” In a news story that was broadcast on all the TV channels in New Jersey on Friday, 300 guns were seized from a Long Island home this week. The seizure happened in walking distance from a local area high school, too.
Many of the guns that were recovered by police were illegal firearms.
The owner, a 66-year-old man named Jay Steiner, was actually arrested in January thanks to the work of an undercover police officer that visited Steiner’s home. Despite the arrest happening two months ago, the story is just now getting coverage on television and in the local and national newspapers.
According to MSN.com, Steiner is now being charged with criminal possession of a weapon. Despite having 300 guns seized from his home, Steiner is free on bail.
The gun tally for Steiner, who allegedly had guns all over his house, breaks down as the following: 85 illegal handguns and 230 rifles and shotguns.”
