So I saw the show last night and I could not figure out what it was. It was a short barreled rifle or pistol(I dont remember if it had a stock) and the homeboys referred to it as their "223". It had the pistol grip with the fire controls in front of the magazine. They had a 30 round mag in it(but since they are illegal, it must have been a 10 round with a mag lock:rolleyes:). Did anyone see it?

I liked how they were talking about when they got into a gun fight "clappin at da po-leece and makin dem run in a shootout."

Probably won't be hard to solve that case now eh?

I wonder how many probation/parole violations were written IMMEDIATELY following that show.
effin tards.

That thing is a collectors item. It never ceases to amaze me the type of weaponry that ends up on the street. It select fire, so were did it come from? Someones pre 86 HA conversion? Stolen from the military?

Possibly stolen(heck, the thing might have even been legally purchased at one point then sold to someone(knowingly or otherwise) who decided to use it for nefarious reasons) god knows how long ago and re-sold on the street who knows how many times.

Look at the AKs and some of the guns you see on the news from overseas. Somali pirates aren't buying those brand new from the factory, they could have had a couple dozen different owners over the course of 40+ years.

They are easy to make with a mill and lathe. It might be a newly constructed weapon. If you think gang bangers don't understand manufacturing I would re-think your position. I can safely bet there are several gang bangers on this board daily. I knew several gang bangers in the military also. Not all gang bangers are drugged up high school drop-outs.

Proves the adage that criminals will get guns no matter if they have to get them in 1968

I saw them for sale as a semi auto only when they first came out. I thought about getting one but passed as it seemed to be a pretty useless firearm neither handgun nor rifle.

I would be pretty upset to get shot, but if I was shot by that and lived, I'd probably off my self out of pure disgust...:puke:

Interesting, I just read an article about this firearm in a magazine from last august on bullpup rifles. I was about to make a comment about how there is only like 6 in existence but I looked over the article again and saw that it was originally published in '75

....let's see ,with a B/B , a single shot sled, a 7.5 " barrel .............

elbow pit.

Isn't that the shoulder thing that goes up? Haha

Anyways, I agree that gangs have master minds above and the minons are the one the cops find. Since our law is so righteous the master mind of large organized gangs are rearly touched.

Thanks for the replies everyone. To the poster who asked it was a show called Inside- LA Gang Wars. I was watching in disbelief thinking to myself about how I could drive to that street in about 30 minutes. I worked in a ghetto but that show really put it into perspective.
