    Talking m231 one weird m16!

    this is one strange version of the m16.

    i only saw these one time and they were carried by an army chemical warfare unit long long ago.

    4th sees this he'll want mongo to bolt up a replica--

    it would make an interesting bump-fire device --if you slowed it down from 1,300RPM to only 850--LOL!

    no sights and super short in the stock--

    100% tracer was used as well. Pull trigger, guide tracers to target. At its rate of fire you better be quick.

    Designed to only tracers at full auto.

    That's pretty cool, thanks for posting it.

    While in development it had a flip up front sight and a wire stock like the M3 submachine gun. It went final without both. I think they did that to keep guys from using them dismounted. That was a long time ago so I don't know how remaining M231 are configured now or even if they're used at all. I thought it was a decent enough idea but I would have gone for a slower 500-600 rate of fire. It just seems as though that would have been more efficient.

    Open bolt? Wow, I wonder what the FCG looks like on that? Interesting.

    I googled the upper to see what would come up.

    Take a look. No sight.

    yea i have seen those uppers from time to time with no sights at various mill-surp places --i thought they were come kind of 80% bull shit.

    i never got a close look at the m231s -- i thought they had some kind of optics or a crude thing of a majig sights on them -- never thought they had no sights-- must have been made for near-sighted soldiers--

    i suppose the NBC couldn't see squat through their gas masks anyway?

    i dont know why the dod would want these ?? maybe cause no one would steal them?--LOL

    hell i wish i had a replica one --just for a BBQ gun-- and the guests could wonder if they drank too much and can't see the sights! LOL!

    Another interesting one was the Bushmaster Arm-pistol. It layed across your fore arm and the stock was supported by the bend in your arm. The upper and lower were on a pivot so it canted on an angle.

    For downed pilots if I recall. I shot one and by the time the mag was empty the whole gun was so hot it would burn your skin. Need gloves for that one. Very cool little gun though.

    hehe-- yea i do remember those being one my want list at one time.

    and everybody forgets the bushmaster m-17s bullpup --i had one of those through the clinton ban till about 08 i think.
    as long as you had good mags that thing would just run and run. very accurate too.

    i sold it during the first panic for a a bit over what i paid for it. it was like getting to use it for all those years free + $100 bill!

    it was heavy and very um "square' compared to an ar-15 and i like to shoot as a lefty --it would sometimes burn my face with the spent casings--

    the trigger set up could be pretty good , though not near as easy to work with as the ar-15s --

    sort of an ar-18/180 made bull pup.
