Gun Bleg 2

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to a Hi Point carbine. I was walking along, minding my own business, when I was jumped by a band of marauding wombats who held me down, took my money, and left behind this:
A Leader Dynamics T-2 5.56 Evil Black Rifle. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

It needs a bit of maintenance, but reportedly shoots fine. It should be in primo shape in time to defend me from migrating polar bears fleeing the encroaching glaciers.
This one is someone elses, showing the internal bits.

Leader Dynamics has a short history, developing the rifle for the sporting and military markets, going through a management upheaval, then falling victim to AW bans in both Australia and the US. The gun uses AR-15/M16/M-4 magazines, and has some internal parts in common with the AR-18/AR-180. Sort of the firearms equivalent of owning an Aussie-made Chevrolet.

Being Australian, you have to put the bullets in upside down, but I'm sure I'll get used to that quickly enough.

Nice, about the guns, but what about the bikini babes?!

Wait, mix babes and gothic chicks, thus:

Nice Snare!

I wouldn't have let that one get away either!

I had an early production model in '82-'83. Had to be sent back, couldn't screw front site down enough to zero. Lack of bolt hold open got funny looks a club range

I pulled back the bolt on an empty magazine, and it stayed back. When I removed the mag, it came forward.

At the range, when I fired the last round, the bold went forward, and yes, I got some funny looks.

They do things different down under.

Welcome to my humble abode. There's a range report of sorts here

Yeah, I promised more bikini babes this year, just haven't gotten to them yet.

Charles St. George, the designer of the Leader Dynamics T2 Mk 5 , has a new .50 BMG bullpup in the works.

Here's Oleg Volk's report, with photos, about the prototype:

Great! Now there's a way to get the muzzle of a .50 BMG 8 inches closer to my face when firing it.
