    Posted 2017-04-12 19:00:32 by: Johnny Gearfire

    Due to the giant light/optic used on MP5s back in the day, I decided to modernize the concept a bit. If you recall I posted about the MP5 that TPM Outfitters have come across with an old Hensoldt light/optic. Well now that it is 20-30 years later we can certainly improve on the concept.

    Posted 2017-04-12 11:08:00 by: Johnny Gearfire

    AR patterned shotguns have always caught my attention.
