FN FS2000

The discontinued bullpup rifle from FN Herstal, the FS2000 is the civilian model of the F2000. This example is a later version that has picatinny rail along the receiver instead of the integrated factory optic. The owner/seller mentions that the barrel was shortened and a Surefire muzzle brake was added to maintain the legal barrel length but also overall length. On the plus side it is now suppressor ready.

Saiga 12

Russian made semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun that is based on the AK rifle platform. Intended to be a tactical firearm, it was originally exported to the U.S in a neutered sporting configuration. Most have been converted back to their AK silhouette, which has led to an explosion of aftermarket parts. This particular example has had it’s barrel shortened by 6″ and the owner/seller permanently attached a Tromix Monster Muzzle Brake to achieve the legal 18″ barrel length. (GRH)

New muzzle brake for the AR.

It’s a XM177 replica. (I know, it’s not EXACT)
The threads are directly behind the ports. So the brake slides over the barrel quite a bit, but it gives the appearance that the barrel is a lot shorter, even though it’s still 16 inches.
The muzzle brake itself is 5 inches, but only adds about 1.5 inches to the barrel length overall, compared to my other brake which was 2.5 inches

Vepr 12

Russian semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun. Originally imported into the U.S with fixed solid stocks, later imports were of the folding stock variant. However they were welded fixed but can be converted back to a folding stock granted you add enough U.S made parts. Note the Russian style competition muzzle brake, U.S made steel 10-round magazine and the steel magazine well. Since they pretty much come configured as an AK platform, you don’t have to go through the hassle of conversions like you would with an older Saiga or Catamount Fury. (GRH)


Got a Silencerco ASR muzzle brake tonight. I’ll probably run this rifle with the EoTech for the next two weeks before ranger school seeing as it wouldn’t make sense for me to buy the razor yet. She’s slowly being pieced together.

Still need a Vortex Razor HD GenII 1-6x, Atlas bipod, and a Geissele DMR trigger.


Musee des Blindés Part 14

1 to 3) AMX Mk. 61 105mm. French SPG based off of the highly successful AMX-13. The existing chassis of the AMX-13 was mated to a newly-designed, semi-open-air superstructure housing a potent 105mm main gun. The main gun was capped with a sizeable muzzle brake and the overall design of the vehicle remained largely faithful to AMX-13 design.

AMX Mk. 61 105mm. Artillería autopropulsada francesa basada en el altamente exitoso AMX-13. El chasis existente del AMX-13 fue apareado a una nueva superestructura semi-abierta que alojaba una potente pieza principal de 105mm. El cañón principal estaba coronado con un gran freno de boca, y el diseño general del vehículo permaneció fiel al diseño del AMX-13.

4 to 6) AMX-32. French MBT developed by GIAT for export. The AMX-32 main battle tank is a further development of the commercially successful AMX-30. The first prototype was revealed in 1982. This MBT was developed as a private venture for the export market, however it received no production orders. Relative to the AMX-30, the AMX-32 has improved armor protection.

AMX-32. TCB francés desarrollado por GIAT para exportación. El tanque de combate principal AMX-32 es un desarrollo posterior del comercialmente exitoso AMX-30. El primer prototipo fue revelado en 1982. Este TCB fue desarrollado como un proyecto privado para el mercado de exportación, pero no recibió ninguna orden de producción. Relativo al AMX-30, el AMX-32 tiene un blindaje mejorado. 

7) AMX-40. As the AMX-32 had failed to attract any potential sales, GIAT decided to produce yet another upgrade; this was the AMX-40. The development of the AMX-40 began in 1980 as a clean sheet design. However, the efforts to obtain foreign orders failed, the most serious potential customer to have considered the design being Spain. It ceased being offered for export in 1990.

AMX-40. Como el AMX-32 fracaso en atraer alguna venta potencial, GIAT decidió producir otra mejora; esta fue el AMX-40. El desarrollo del AMX-40 empezó en 1980 como un diseño completamente nuevo. Sin embargo, los esfuerzos por conseguir ordenes internacionales fracasaron, habiendo sido España el comprador potencial mas serio. Cesó de ser ofrecido para la exportación en 1990. 

8 to 10) AMX-50. French heavy tank designed in the immediate postwar period. It was proposed as, in succession, the French medium, heavy, and main battle tank and incorporated many advanced features. However, it was to suffer cancellation in the late 1950s due to unfavourable economic and political circumstances combined with delays in development.

AMX-50. Tanque pesado francés desarrollado en el tiempo  inmediato de la posguerra. Fue propuesto como, en sucesión, el tanque mediano, pesado y tanque de combate principal francés e incorporó muchas características avanzadas. Sin embargo, estaba destinado a ser cancelado a finales de los 50 debido a situaciones políticas y económicas desfavorables combinadas con retrasos en su desarrollo.
