The article he links to is a real piece of paid readverviewment.



If the first line of your article could easily have been plucked out of a Ruger product description, then you have failed as a reviewer.


The last point is the best. "You know how it's possible to explode a gun by mixing .223 and .300? You should do everything in your power to make that happen."

What's the reasoning for using a stripper clip on a gun with a detachable magazine?


I'm not sure if this the reason with the US tested FALs in particular but, "disposable" magazines for the longest time were anything but disposable, and actually rather expensive a pain in the ass to properly manufacture.


Might've been in the event magazines were low on supply but ammo was more abundant. (at the end of WW2 for example, MP44s had far less impact than people will have you believe, you'd be lucky to even get 30-60 rounds for one, even luckier still to actually get a damn magazine and blessed to get 2 to use them for the damned things.)

20 rounds of FMJ .308 for m1a use, only $24....




A 180 series Mini14. Old, junky, inaccurate, prone to failures. 900 dollars. 


Also, you literally cannot get spares for them anymore, as they are substantially dimensionally different from every other series of Mini.
