One of the biggest surprises (for me anyway) was finding out that Neosho, MO custom AR-15 company Black Rain Ordnance is trying their hand at custom CNC machined AK-47/AKM pattern rifles. And a sick rifle it is.
With all components CNC machined from the ground up and re-thought from top to bottom save for basic AK function, the Black Rain AK Prototype dubbed “FREEDOM FIGHTER” is ridiculously accurate at 100 yards (I rang the 1/3 silhouette standing from a Trijicon ACOG with boring routine), reliable, and while rock solid is a bit on the heavy side.
I want so bad….
Another one to the list of rifles that I must have. I must be weird, I do like the AK variants over the AR platform for some reason.
The Rifle Want/Must Have List now:
Ruger 10-22 (Will buy this year come hell or high water.
Savage Axis (will make it an inexpensive scout rifle)
Carbine-sized Lever Action in .357 Magnum.
Black Rain AK.
Dear gods of Lotto…hear my cry of anguish!
