    Sharps MilSpec AR-25-45 Sharps

    Another upper or complete rifle that's in the AR pattern. Except for a few things:
    • Chambered in 25-45 Sharps. This is ballistically similar to .25 Savage, so if you aren't allowed to hunt with .223 in your state, this will help. RCBS has dies, and Federal has signed on to provide ammo in this caliber.
    • It uses a self-regulating piston, so you don't need to mess with it as in a FAL. The goal is consistent internal pressure, which should lead to consistent velocity. Atmospheric pressure is part of the mix as well, so changes in elevation should be less of an issue.
    • It comes threaded for a suppressor as well. Look at the previous section and know that the system takes into account changes in pressure due to the can as well.
    • The bolt is being advertised as being 300% stronger than a regular AR bolt, and the extractor has been "fixed" over the normal AR. Lifetime warranty on both.
    • Nitride coated barrel is supposed to last 3-4 times longer than chrome lined barrels.
    • 5R rifling method used (less deformation of bullets, more accuracy)
    • The trigger is milspec but it's slicked.

    I posted the S&W MP .22LR in the handgun section, that was at the show and did a doubletake re-review of all the pics. I am still wiping the drool off the keyboard and monitors! :D

    the 25-45 sharps rifle looks interesting. dont care for the piston system and dont care for the weight and extra moving parts. the octagon barrel is really sweet but they shoulda continued it past that ugly rail.

    One thing I can confirm is that there was no shortage of "ugly", tons of AR-Unnecessary and more ill-fitting 1911's than you could possibly imagine.

    Someone should get Dr. Jason in here and get a first timers' experience on what he saw. :D

    It was a little overwhelming, especially since I'm fairly new to firearms.

    As JD said in another thread, you really couldn't swing a dead cat around and not hit "something" AR related. Learned a lot about 1911's and what make a great, good, and so so one. Also, saw the ultimate mall ninja accessory, side barrel piccaninny rails on a Glock:rolleyes:

    Definitely would go again :D

    BTW, WTF Cane you were there and didn't hook up with JD, Scub and me :confused:

    It was good that you weren't there. The Colt booth would have disappointed you. :(
