So I noticed the "Just finished my AR" and "Check out my new AR build" threads are about dead... And AR's are flooding the classifieds now..

The ACR and SCAR threads didn't last long...

Whats the next fan boy everyone and their mother has one rifle is next to flood the threads??

I just bought a middy and have a feeling its going to be old news pretty soon and wondering what the new fad is going to be :D

So what do you guys think its going to be?

And no I'm not asking to get one.. I love the hell out of my AR.

I'm just wondering whats all being bought out there or if all the Obama junkies are just dieing out and there isnt going to be another over bought rifle.

And just to get some convo goin around here.

I think AR's still and will be a fad for a while; they're cheap to obtain, LEO are becoming more familiar with BB's and featureless, versatile and there are many mall ninja accessories you can get.

Yea but those have been around for ever. And I remember when I first signed up all I saw was AR threads. And thats honestly the only reason I went from snipers hide to here to learn more about the AR15 plat form. Over there its 90% 700's and then the semi auto section is all AR10's or 50 BMG's.

they are becoming more and more prominent (although I don't get it)... I recently visited family in the mid west and of the boatloads of rifles they have, muzzleloaders are their new gun of choice...

Interestingly, many of their interests are more geared around hunting - where here it's almost exclusively tactical... can't kill zombies fast enough with a muzzleloader...

You mean here on Calguns, right? Because, there are a lot of charcoalburners in California. Ever since I built my first on in '87, I've been hooked. As far as killing zombies go, I've got beltfeds and 50s but, when I'm carrying a smokepole, I've also got a horn full of black powder. Zombies aren't going to get past me until I blow several of them up.

You know the ACR would have been the "It" rifle if BM and Magpul hadn't failed so badly. Quick change barrels, light weight, change out parts with the Magpul parts you already have and it would have been the new boy barbie gun! Instead we got a overpriced modular AR that you can't change the stock or grip, still waiting on those different lengh barrels and the price came down but not to the level they advertised. It would have been better if Magpul just came out with there own uppers. :(

I may turn AK fanboy. Just picked up a Saiga and waiting the 10 day on it now. We shall see. b

Ide like to see a .308 type lever action and one in .45 acp. I love lever actions.

Also like to see a a 16" .308 semi auto thats a decent pricent. Something above a sks and below a M1A. Like the 799.00 range. They have the CMP, but average joes cant go to there local Bass Pro and pick one up. Got to go through a couple loops.


I would love to get a new survival gun, just a simple lightweight, multi cal rifle than can break down into a backpack. That Springfield one they had a while back was a fantastic concept. I like the over under idea also. Be great to swap between .22lr and like .45acp

Well Magpul just designed a new rifle. They claim it will be be less expensive than the ACR which is unbelievable. It might be though since parts of it are made where 99.99999% of firearms owners tactical equipment is made and thats China. Its supposed to be lighter, cheaper and more user friendly.

Interesting-They dont want to tell the old man out of fear for his health? Also, I thought they were already phasing in the AN-94 Abakan (at least the Spetsnaz uses it). If the old man dies, and if Russia stops producing them, prices on AKs will probably increase...but not much. Odd variants will be a solid investment.

Anyway, the next fanboy gun? I would say, whichever gun the next world boogeyman happens to be weilding (Bin Laden did wonders for the price of a 74U) vs. like the other poster stated-whatever the SEALs or US supermen have. Also keep in mind, ALOT of new video games are coming out. Whatever hip gun from them may be a contender too.

So Kalashnikov does not know, but we the super informed members of Calguns do... LOL

It would appear (from the article and from a historic perspective) the reason they are no longer purchasing them is they dont need anymore!

Looks like their production was still based on the old Communist ideology as opposed to modern "supply and demand"

Further more the AN-94 is all but dead, too expensive, complex and unreliable.
Neat idea though

I'm surprised you guys dont know what its going to be... Its not whats the next fan boy rifle, its modernization of whats already hot. The Nokia Glock is already out, Magpul is working around the clock with Nokia for the first Magpul Nokia stock or pistol grip add-ons for our AR-15s.

Redefining our AR platforms for everyday and tactical use.

Can you hear me now?

With that Nokia phone? Please, that's like straight out of 2001. At minimum have it powered by Android with a touch screen and 3G. Glock grips are so fat there is no excuse not to fit all kinds of tech in there.

Perhaps a bit late for my $0.02 to have any weight, but here it is anyway:

ARs aren't a fad. At this point they're either as proven as any other military derived rifle, or near as makes no difference. The special ops community tried to replace them, but the 5.56mm SCAR "wasn't different enough from" (read: offered no real benefit over) the AR platform to justify its own logistical problems. And this from a community that tolerates its personnel using pretty much whatever they want.

What will drive innovation is if we're going to continue to follow the Hague and not use one of many existing bullet designs that perform better than standard FMJ in the AR. That would require that we (and others under the Hague) take an honest look at the situation, and decide that dropping someone on the spot is more humane than letting them bleed out from their 5.56mm "green tip" wounds...not gonna happen.

So what will mark the coming of the new "fan boy rifle" (a term I am loathe to use) will be a cartridge or projectile that is allowed under international law, but is devastatingly effective while still offering the advantages that 5.56 offered over 7.62 NATO. Until then the AR platform will continue to be adapted and improved, and if more effective ammo is issued it'll likely serve longer.

IMO, we'd be better served by replacing the M249, which in my experience (which is admittedly anecdotal) is garbage.

the next fan boy rifle will be any rifle the arf.com SUPER SECRET SQUIRREL DELTA SEAL MARSOC BLACK OPS OPERATOR types say is cool.. and it will infect the fan boys here..

oh wait.. there are no fan boys here... :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Or whatever new military weapon the seals, or delta or marsoc uses..

personally i really think that more calibers of the ar-15 platform will be the "next" bIg thing.. ie 300blk, 6.5grendal, 6.8spc etc and whatever new caliber the industry brings out..

Or everyone will drop there ar15 for the larger 308 ar weapons..

Apple iGun?

This is just a carry model obviously, if you want a compact or full size it costs twice as much.

For the next 4 years you can only purchase through Cheaper than Dirt, and you must sign a contract promising to only buy ammo from them for a minimum of 2 years,
which does not matter because it will only fire Apple brand ammo anyways.

Some people have modified them to fire non-Apple ammo, but if Apple finds out they will remotely lock you out of your gun permanently.

Perhaps the Kel-Tec SU16/C? I'v always thought they were pretty cool, plus it seems like it could be an easy transition for all us AR guys with the retro AR style stock they make for them.

Ugh, I played the video and just felt my stomach turn as I counted his shots... 7... 8... 9... 10... Fu©k.

I enjoyed his posts, hopefully he'll be back in some form or another. Or maybe a little leniency from the powers that be.

Likely a post that's been deleted... or he was discovered to be a sockpuppet or a previously banned member...

Or he may have requested it (PnS did that every time he needed to study for finals)... or it may only be a 3/5/10 day vacation.

Why?

Not illegal unless the video showed him assembling a rebuild kit or bringing one back across the border.

I'd post a video of my wife shooting 15 rounds out of her 92FS but I don't have a convenient way to do that.

After a quick look at the video...

Were AR22 mags available 11 years ago?

That is moot because he could be in Russia for all we know, it is only assumption that he is in CA.

Well he does state that he was only shooting .22 because his LOCAL range doesn't allow rifle rounds. His location is Huntington Beach. It's really a moot point though. It was likely a post we can no longer see

Thats what I thought the poster was saying. he was making his own or do it yourself 30 rounders,

Whatever it is it might as well be a gatling firing dildos. Industry insiders who have seen and experienced it say it's just more of the same. EA is playing it safe post Infinity Ward.

BC3 will be much better.
