So, What’s Up With 7.62X39 MM In AR Rifles?

 

 

 

 

” There’s a modern trend going on with a retro cartridge these days. Evidence of it can be found in the SIG Sauer 556R (rumored to have been developed at the behest of a specific high-speed military customer) and then there is the brand new CMMG MK47 Mutant. Essentially these are Western SIG or AR-based rifles or carbines chambered for the 7.62×39 mm cartridge that do not come with the limitations of the AK-47 platform—but do employ the AK magazine. And, for military operators, there is less of training curve (which is somewhat important for guys who train all the time). I was once told regarding such guns, “There are times and places you just don’t want to leave Lake City 5.56 on the deck.” That is but one explanation as to why we are seeing more and more contemporary AR-style rifles chambered for the Soviet M43 cartridge.”

 

 

 

” Originally developed for use on the Germans during World War II (December 1943), the cartridge we know as the 7.62×39 mm cartridge was first used by the Red Army in the Simonov SKS carbine in 1945 and then became almost synonymous with the world’s most produced firearm, the Avtomat Kalashnikova or AK-47. If being 71 years old does not qualify a cartridge for “retro” I’m not sure what would.

  But it turns out the 7.62×39 mm has many advantages for civilians as well. First of all, with a bullet designed for expansion, it is a pretty good short- to medium-range hunting cartridge. You doubt me? Ballistically, it delivers similar performance to the venerable .30-30 Win. No one doubts the hunting credentials of that cartridge. And the 7.62×39 mm offers intermediate .30-cal. power out of the basic AR platform, on the cheap.”

 

 

 

 

” Bill Ruger recognized the cartridge’s potential when he introduced his Mini-30 carbine back in 1987. And, of course, Colt started chambering its Sporter in 7.62×39 mm in 1992 (although neither of those used an AK magazine), and other makers have followed suit since. ArmaLite, Bushmaster, Del Ton, Doublestar, DPMS, MGI Olympic and Rock River have offered complete rifles and/or uppers for the AR platform in 7.62×39 mm. No doubt there are others; likely with more on the way. “

Remington To Move Production Of Two Gun Lines From New York To Alabama

 

 

 

 

” Nearly 200 years after Eliphalet Remington II forged his first rifle in Ilion, residents of the small central New York village are getting the bad news they have feared for more than a year: Remington Arms is moving production of two of its gun lines to Alabama.

  While the company did not announce the outright closing of the facility that has been home to Remington since 1816, gun rights advocates said that day is now likely moving closer and they blame the state’s 2013 NY SAFE Act gun control law.

“ This could very well be the beginning of the end of Ilion,’’ said Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, the state chapter for the National Rifle Association.

  The Buffalo News last September featured Ilion in a story about residents there growing increasingly worried that Remington, the anchor in the village of 8,000 in Herkimer County, was under growing pressure to leave New York since passage of the SAFE Act.

  Remington said it will move production of its Bushmaster line of semi-automatic rifles that are no longer legal for the company to sell in New York without modifications. It is also sending work on its popular 1911 R1 pistol.”

 

     Welcome to New York , a fine place to do business … not , as New York pols manage to drive out America’s oldest , continuously operating factory .

The ATF Revokes Firearm License From The Gun Shop That Sold Adam Lanza’s Mother The Bushmaster “Assault Weapon” But Won’t Say Why

 

 

 

” Shortly after the killings the federal government raided Riverview Gun Sales and now the ATF has revoked the firearm permit from the gun shop. The question is why, but the ATF is silent. Here is what the owner of the gun shop had to say:

There is nothing more devastating than the loss of a child,” LaGuercia said in a statement in December. “We are absolutely appalled that the product that we sold several years ago would be used in this type of horrendous crime. Our hearts go out to the victims and the families

From all accounts Riverview Gun Sales legally sold this weapon to a law abiding citizen so it sees as though an explanation is due because this seems highly unusual.”
