adams-arms-evo Adams Arms Carbine Tactical EVO Adams Arms is now offering complete .223 Rem./5.56 NATO AR rifles using their adjustable short stroke gas piston system for continued operation even with heavy fouling, a variety of ammunition of with a mounted suppressor. Of the many new rifles the Carbine Tactical EVO caught our attention. This rifle features a 16 inch 4150 Chrome Molly melonite coated barrel with a Mils-Spec 1 in 7 twist rate and a Samson free-floated lightweight handguard, which allows for the operator to add rails where desired. A collapsible VLTOR buttstock and rubberized Ergo grip rounds out the package. Visit adamsarms.net or call 727-853-0550 for more info. micor-defense-416 Micor Defense Inc. Leader 50 Who needs a rimfire when you can get a tactical CQB room-clearing bullpup .50 caliber semi-auto rifle like the new Leader 50 from Micor Defense Inc. At 17 pounds the Leader 50 is comparably lightweight and thanks to its design it is well balanced and easy to handle, yet maintains a 24-inch chrome vanadium Mil-Spec barrel and a 39-inch overall length. The massive muzzle break soaks up the recoil to a .30-06 levels, reportedly. The ten-round magazine feeds the short-stroke gas piston system for reliable functioning in adverse conditions and the full-length top Picatinny rail makes for easy optics mounting plus a dustcover keep dirt and debris out of the action.

The Franklin Armory XO-26b AR gun looks like a long AR pistol with a buffer tube and no stock but thanks to its overall length of just over 26 inches the company can add a forward vertical grip for added stability and control and it is not a restricted firearm requiring any more federal paperwork than for any pistol. This gun is available in a wide array of calibers from .223 Remington to .450 and including 7.62×39. It features an 11.5-inch chrome molly barrel with a 1-in-7 twist rate, Magpul furniture, padded buffer tube, weighs six pounds and comes with a tactical soft-sided case.

    Way way way too many AR manufactures out there now. Im sure most of them wont last because they have no experience and their QC is probably lacking.

    I agree with Hughes. Its getting stupid. Its not like they differ in design. They are basically the same everything. No more patents!

  • AJ

    Black FAL’s are the wave of the future. Better looking I think.
