    On another note: I wonder if you could, on a recoil operated rifle (not gas like the AR variants) use the gas to drive a fan that would cool the barrel a bit like a PC's fan does.

    Yeah, it'd be kind of modern steampunk, but hey, it's better than nothing, and possibly better than water cooled designs from WWII.

    Edit: and/or install a radiator.

    Edit 2: why don't we have lasers yet? It's 2009, ****.

    Not surprised. Lots of reporters screw up the minor simple details but I've also found that what an embedded reporter (I hate myself for using that word) will write something that gets edited 6 times at 6 different levels so the final product is considerably different.

    I just get tired of people who've never fired an AR-15 and have no idea how it works telling other people that it will turn their kids into communists. Yes, it deposits carbon fouling. Yes, it's designed with tight tolerances. But the people I know who've used one "in anger" say that if you clean it, it works, and if you don't, it doesn't. Even the magical AK-47 works on that same principle, though many would rather die than admit it.
    Couldn't agree more.
    People read about **** on military forums or gun forums and then pass on what they've read,often **** gets garbled along the way.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    Hey, I've had historical gun enthusiasts go on and on about how water cooled machine guns from WWI are waaay better than anything we have today. :qright7:

    Yes, or SCAR Lights, or H&K 416s. All of which are full auto.
