Exclamation Counterfeit AR-15's

Counterfeit AR-15's have been found in IRAQ. You know what the effect will be if this spreads world wide? I hate to even think about it.

We used to get reports of counterfeit Bushmasters back when I worked for them. I've seen some pictures of fake ones. Probably Chinese rip offs.

I think the "locals" have been doing that sort of thing....... in the Kyber Pass region for about 200 years...........

If they ever make a counterfeit Glock, I might have to buy a few. The good Man above knows that Glock is WAY overpriced! I bought a M&P .40 2.0, with (4) palm grips, 3 mags, and a better trigger, IMO, for $425 + $7.99 S&H from GrabAGun.com
If you want the ULTIMATE "Poor Mans Glock" then buy an SDVE or an SD9 or an SD40. These firearms are so close to the Glock 19, but are over half the price less than the 19. So, you can buy (2) for (1).
And, with the current $25 rebate, even cheaper!

No telling what might show up in a war zone in that part of the world. Where there is a need some enterprising person will find a way to fill it.

What's the difference between a "counterfeit" AR and say a S&W MP15????????? I mean the design is pretty much in the public domain.
