This week on TGC News, Reddit and Citibankjoin the anti-freedom crowd, a double mag PCC lower and2 new long range rifles! Welcome back everyone, my name is Jon Pattonand you are watching TGC News.
First things first, We just hit 125, 000 subscriberson YouTube! That’s absolutely astonishing and I seriouslythank you guys for trusting us as the source for gun related news.
Also, quick shoutout and thanks to those thatjumped over and supported us on Patreon over the last week.
That does not go unnoticed.
Now, the news.
9mm carbines are all the rage right now.
5 Creedmoor and Pistol Caliber Carbines, I don’t know who would win the popularity contest.
It’s not surprise then that more and morecompanies are focusing on PCC parts.
Enter a company called Foxtrot Mike Products.
This is their new RTC or ready to customizelower for 9mm carbines.
And it has a few interesting features.
First up, it is made, mostly, of polymer.
I know a bunch of you just scoffed becausePolymer rifle lowers are a problem for some.
Well they’ve thought of that and utilizedan aluminum rear insert that is molded into the lower.
The entire buffer tube loop and below intothe safety selector area contains that insert.
This tackles the issue that concerns folksof the buffer tube impacting something and snapping off of the receiver.
Beyond that and the overall look of the lower, there are a couple other things that stand out.
The grip, for one, is actually designed likethe grip of your normal pistol to accept an extra magazine.
It has a normal button release and all.
I’m not sure it would be the fastest way toreload because you’re kind of combining pistol and rifle mechanics BUT it’s still prettycool.
And last but not least, its ambidextrous exceptfor the bolt catch.
All for the price of 149 bucks.
What do you guys think of this? Would you buy this over any of the other optionsout there like New Frontier Armory, Angstadt or Quarter Circle 10? Would you get this FM over those? And in gundustry strugglebus news, not onlyare we all being threatened by looming gun control measures and a congress that justpassed Fix NICS, but we also are now dealing with corporate america and their undereducatednonsense.
On March 22nd, Citibank announced that theywill be placing their own restrictions on their retail customers regarding firearms.
The new policy says that business are fineas long as (1) they don’t sell firearms to someone who hasn’t passed a background check, (2) they restrict the sale of firearms for individuals under 21 years of age, and (3)they don’t sell bump stocks or high-capacity magazines.
And unlike the Youtube nonsense, this versionof high-capacity magazines remains undefined.
So now we are seeing the people that controlthe funding implementing their own firearms discrimination and restrictions to circumventthe law.
Needless to say, I hope this plague does notcontinue to spread.
At the same time though, this would be anopportunity for a bank to assert themselves as open to doing business with anyone andsoak up the dollars from the gun industry.
On top of that, Reddit recently shut downa few subreddits such as r/gundeals and r/Brassswap due to some new policies on the site.
Essentially the policy says that you can notsolicit or facilitate the sale of firearms or ammunition among other things like stolengoods, drugs, prostitution, personal information, and falsified documents.
Yes that’s right, guns are being lumped inwith illegal activity in this new Reddit policy.
I understand the fact that they don’t wantpeople to be using the site for illegal activity but guns and ammo are totally legal to possess, so why lump that in with all this illegal stuff? For those of you that are unaware, Redditis one of the largest aggregator sites on the internet where you could essentially findanything.
The traffic generated from that site is staggering.
And now you can’t even so much as mentiona place to buy a gun without fear of getting banned.
Law abiding citizens being silenced, yet againmy friends.
In AR10 news, a company called Doublestarhas expanded on their lineup of Star 10-B rifles with the addition of 2 new cartridges, the 6.
5 Creedmoor AND the 260 Remington.
They’re calling them the STAR10BX.
Breaking down the features on both rifleswe’ve got a 22 inch stainless heavy barrel with a 1 in 8 twist topped off with a bigol 3 chamber brake.
That is covered with a 15 inch Samson 308Evolution handguard.
They both of course have the standard Star10 receivers which includes that downward slope to the magwell and grip portion on thefront.
They also come standard with a CMC 3 and ahalf pound trigger, hogue grip, and an ACE hammer stock.
All for the MSRP of 2549.
Don’t get me wrong, I think this could bea very nice rifle, I don’t know because I’ve never had the chance to mess with a DoubleStar, but that price tag is almost as steep as that weird magwell.
I want to know what you guys think, wouldyou rather build your own AR10 OR would you pony up and get one that comes from a reputable builder?
