  2. My videos are too big to attach...
  3. I was mistaken. It is 1 of 10 semiautos ever made. I have serial number X002. The semi actually doesn’t have the coteolability of the fullauto. The full fires from an open bolt so the massive carrier and bolt slam home as the round is firing which transfers that motion forward against the recoil. The constant recoil system does prevent a sharp recoil impulse but the open bolt is the true key. If you watch the videos closely you will notice a couple give aways. First, when the first round is fired the bolt is released from a much shorter distance to close. The first round in a burst will recoil a little more but the following are firing off a carrier closing from much further back which lets the carrier/bolt accelerate to a much greater velocity which greatly tidied the recoil impulse of the filling shots. When the bolt closes on an empty chamber you will notice it drags the gun forward because there is no round to counter the forward energy. You wo t notice this much when I’m firing it but you will in just about any other AA-12 video out there... The semi version doesn’t have a violent recoil impulse but it definitely moves you more firin from the closed bolt. You have the recoil of the round plus the heavy carrier/bolt moving reward without any forward movement to help counter it. When it returns to the closed position it pulls forward a bit. Even with high power buck shot you don’t get a sudden impact and it’s actually hard to tell the difference between the weaker bulk pack stuff and high power stuff even in the semi closed bolt version which is a nice benifit. But... The time of travel from rear to back closed is slow and you can’t really recover until it is all over and closed. When Daewoo made their version of the AA-12 they missed this feature also and their select fire version fires from a closed bolt tool. I have a USAS-12 but I have actually never fired it. It would have to feel basically the same as the closed bolt semi AA-12. Maybe a touch quicker recovery from the USAS-12 because it is a heavier gun. I was actually very pleasantly surprised though with the weight and feel of the AA-12. I was expecting something as cumbersome as the USAS-12 is to handle and carry. The AA-12 was far superior to the USAS-12 in that regard.
  4. I am making a drive to pick up an AA-12 Shotgun tomorrow. It is 1 of only 12 semiauto versions ever made. Of course I’ll be fixing the Semi issue... I’ll post some pics and stuff but likely not tomorrow. It will be a very long day for me with a minimum of 11 hours drive time.
  5. By brain surgery are you referring to a .22 caliber injection at the stem? That’s the only cure I know of, lol.
  6. I am glad they are out! One of the stupidest things that happened over the Obamination... I know a gay guy that thought it was ridiculous as well. While I can’t relate to someone being gay there are definitely people that are born that way through genetics and it is so wrong of us as a people to throw them all in one basket. Just like everyone else there are good ones and evil ones...
  7. Here is a concept I made. 23rds. This one can also load on a closed bolt, activate the last round bolt hold open and doesn’t bust like a melon or damage the internal sprocket if dropped fully loaded let alone empty. The pic makes it look like the tower area is longer but it does fit flush to the magwell... I was totally scratching my head the first time I saw the 25rd drum. Crazy how much bigger it is for just 2 more rounds. A perfect example on the difference design can make in a product...

    IWI Bullpup 12ga shotgun

    I played with this at Shot Show. It really wasn’t bad in weight. I totally didn’t like it though. It was very cumbersome for me to handle. Having to manually rotate the tubes every 5 rounds would be such a pain too. Couldn’t even imagine trying it in a high stress situation. Reloading would absolutely suck. Just inspecting it seemed if you had a jam in a hot situation you would be screwed and better off to drop and pull your pistol, even if well covered with space, time and distance from the perps being well in your favor. I think we will see all these multi-tube designs fade away and fast now that companies see a double stack is very possible... I also agree on the video comment that it seemed to kick excessively but maybe it was the shooters not controlling it well... The old P12 design that never materialized seems like best bullpup design I have seen yet. Even there though I think a bullpup with a 20rd double stack in the rear would be my pick.

    MD Arms ceases drum manufacturing and sales

    I got your email and will respond shortly. If you see this first email me again with your address. Thanks
  10. Here is my thought... It would be wise to continue reading it even after finding it may not support somes conspiracy/false flag story desire. It’s easy for people to want there to be more to a story than there really is. Don’t fall into that and open your mind to some real facts... The very first time I heard the videos I knew it was bumpfire. It was plain as day to me and no question about it... I told this to many people including law enforcement friends that it was bumpfire and they all said no way that it was true fullauto. I simply told them, “Wait and see...” They saw... The people saying it was a m240 don’t truly understand either and must not have realized he had some .308 guns with bumpfire stocks in the room. You can look up videos of those in use and they sound just the same as well. In fact even more like it because they flucualte like a rookie on a bumpfire too. How does this conspiracy stuff spread? When dummy sheriffs like the Vegas local goes on TV and say they don’t know if it was a factory fullauto or if the sear had been filed. Yeah... You can’t file anything on a AR and make a machinegun. A semi AR doesn’t even have a sear. What you can do though is make you a very nice bolt action AR that reduces it’s magazine capacity by half because a unfired round is ejected every time you operate your new bolt action rifle... You add parts or material to make a fullauto AR and not take it away. Those dummy locals didn’t even know how to identify a fullauto or a bumpfire stock and had to wait for an ATF agent to tell them he had bumpfire stocks. Then the dummy Sheriff with his small mind goes on TV again to express more of his small thoughts in saying that how can a guy do this by himself with no help. Very easy! I bet I could have taken everything Paddock had in the room up in 2 or 3 trips with a luggage cart and no one would have batted an eye. A millionaire high roller like Paddock could have had help from the bellhop to move his luggage for him and no one would have batted an eye... I was just in Vegas last week next door at the Luxor and have no doubt I could have taken all that stuff up without a second look even after the fact it happened a few months prior. I am betting the hotel videos have been tied up by the hotel’s attornies for liability purposes. Eventually they will be released and we will all see just how easy it actually was. Wait and see... Here is another prediction. I haven’t seen any reports that said the .308 guns were actually fired but when a full report is released they will. Wait and see... How else does this stuff grow and spread? You have some amateur health food guy go on youtube and make a video about his acoustic analysis. He breaks down the impact noises from the gun report noises. He determines there is a difference in some impacts from their matching gun reports that “proves” there were multiple shooters. He claims he is willing to help the FBI, etc, with their own analysis. I sure they got a good laugh over that. They wrote the book on this stuff and know how to do it correctly and also have the info that the YouTubed didn’t... The problem with the Heath food guys analysis is he only considered .223 ammo. Had he considered looking at .308 velocity for his so called second shooter posistion he would have seen that the increased velocity of that round would have fit up perfectly with .308 being fired from the same exact distance as the .223. So I was just in Vegas for Shot Show... I wanted to see the sight first hand to get a better firsthand feel of it all. I stayed across the street from the concert grounds and directly next door from the Mirage. I wasn’t quite as high as Paddocks room but I was virtually the same distance away at just an opposite angle of view that Paddock had of the concert grounds. After seeing this I was more convinced than ever it was just some nut case that had no idea how to effiecently operate his weapons. Had it been an experienced person there would have been so many more dead and wounded just using what Paddock had access too with the time he had. I’m not kidding you when I say I probably could have killed 500 people or more with over a thousand wounded single handedly. Now had you put a M240 in the room it would have been well over a 1000 dead, for real... Even a rookie like Paddock would have killed hundreds with a M240... I can only imagine how many a covert and highly trained black ops team of multiple people would have killed, probably 5000 or more... The Vegas shooting was complete amateur hour next to what really could have happened... Here is another thing about a true conspiracy... A real conspiracy you ALWAYS have your story planned from the very start. You know exactly what will be said and you stick to it. You fill in as many holes as possible to prevent more people from claiming conspiracy. The person or people framed with it are also given motives for their actions and usually those motives help further support the conclusions the conspirators are going for. That is the complete opposite of what this has been. Their story has been super vague and has changed multiple times which has only fed the conspiracy and they have no motive for Paddock... We also don’t see any significant agendas being pushed. What was the conspirators goals? Simply to ban bumpfire stocks? It may happen but hasn’t yet. Most people including the libatards don’t even care anymore also as enough time has passed... I do think there are plenty of conspiracies and false flags but this isn’t one. Just some sad little mentally ill person that didn’t have his butt kissed enough by his criminal element and also mentally ill and or lacking family. Some small little man that made himself rich but actually was still a nobody that wanted to be a somebody. He harbored this hate for people up until he tried to get revenge on the world. I know many will disagree with this but I’m guessing those people don’t have a true understanding of the weapons that were and weren’t used and haven’t seen the scene firsthand as well. Don’t feel bad if you bought into the conspiracy theory either as it’s easy to do with what seems to be good supporting evidence and with morons like the local sheriff feeding it through his own ignorance. We are all ignorant about some things and that’s ok. We just need to learn and understand those ignorances better to remove our own ignorances. I’m not trying to belittle those that believe the false flag story, I’m just trying to educate a little on the actual weapon capibilites to the short distance and massive crowd concentration that stretch over 200 yards thick. Bottom line is this was complete amateur hour and had a slightly skilled person been the trigger man it would have been many many times worse. Hell, Paddock could have simply rented a raised diesel pickup truck and crashed it through the chain link fence and did doughnuts over and over across thousands of people... Amateur hour...
  11. Yep!!! And don’t let the media convince you that people are turning on Trump. His support was large enough to beat the elites rigged system. That showed me just how much support he has. That support is growing by the day too and not shrinking. You all know just how sick everyone is and how close everyone is to seriously considering stringing up the elite by ropes. Not just here in America but the whole damn world. If it happens they will have absolutely no where to hide either. I hope things remain peaceful myself though.

  13. If anyone watched the address you saw Steve Staub there and complimented by Trump. Steve owns the company that produced the cover clips and front mag catch insert in the MD-20 drums. He also produced the feedlios on the first run of drums before I had a progressive die made for that part. Trump went to his shop while he was on the trail too back in 2016 also. Steve also went to a meeting at the White House with some other small business owners to discuss manufacturing in America with Trump. It didn’t know he was going to the address tonight and when I saw him I had to resisit the urge to immediately start texting him with congrates! I figured he was pretty busy, lol, but how cool would it have been for me if I had and I saw him checking the message on live TV!!! Lol! Steve is a great guy and runs a tight ship. Has a great company and glad he got the credit from Trump!
  14. Guys, let’s not get worked up now. We are just now entering a golden age of tactical/offensive/defensive shotgun evolution/revolution. It is awesome we will get to witness it. Firearm evolution has been fairly stagnant for awhile now so this should be exciting and happy times for all of us. Let’s look to the future together. I do deserve blame and shame for not getting it out for the Saiga-12. Everything from internal issues to multiple import scares and multiple political scares stopped me over and over. I do wish I knew then what I know now because the double stacks for the Saiga-12 would have been dominating since sometime in 2010. I have a great guilt that I didn’t fix the issue of so many junk ass mag options for the platform. The double stack would have crushed them like bugs... I can’t get those years back though. Maybe things will change... Maybe enough will come in from the current deal that I say screw it and make them just because the Saiga-12 and it’s users deserve them. The Saiga-12 is still by far my favorite shotgun in the world and in my opinion the most capable by far. To clear things up though I retain the rights and control of the patent. The only thing I can’t do is give someone else the right to manufacture them for Mossberg platforms, including myself. Also they only have the right to manufacture them for a platform with their name. Everything else is wide open and a possibility. By signing this deal it brought the double stack to life in a commercial form. It will prove to everyone that yes it is very possible and yes it is very reliable. I heard they fired a pallet of ammo at Range day and didn’t have a single issue not associated with user error like short stroking the pump. The reps at Shot were telling people they plan to have a 930 version ready within a year that will take the same exact mags as the 590M. I can’t confirm/deny that myself though. I will tell you that I spoke to many major manufactures and all but one were very interested in their own platform/platforms with double stacks. The one that wasn’t interested called me yesterday with a totally different tune also, lol... That doesn’t mean every last one will produce a platform or platforms usin it. It also takes the big companies time to work through all their hoops they have to jump through too. That’s not to mention all the awesome shotgun designs that people and companies have shelved over the years because there wasn’t a truly practical way to feed them. I’ll also tell you that I have a new patent pending that will even further change the game and practicality for this class of shotguns... I do love shotguns, and all other firearms, and plan to enhance them for all of us as much as I possibly can during my stay on this rock in the void...
  15. I can only say so much about the deal. I need to make sure I don’t say too much. I’m under contract. I’ll figure out what I can and can’t say and give more details.
