A return to the 5.7 platform..in a big way!

Post by 5Jeffro7 » 22 Aug 2019, 20:06

I still kick myself for getting rid of my first usg, but after several years of hiatus, I've returned to the platform:

CMMG Banshee
USG
Violin Case

although I've yet to get the time to take them out, I'm sure they'll make beautiful music...both separate and together 8-)

as for pics, since photobucket has gone all fubar, I'm looking for free photo hosting sites...recommendations would be appreciated

Welcome back, I started using imgur.com for my pics.

Wait, they've done a 5.7x28 version of the CMMG Banshee? AND IT TAKES FIVE-SEVEN MAGS??? I'll see if I can get an SBR project accepted by the ATF... Too bad they didn't do a 7.62x25 Tokarev version of it as well, that round is awesome and I wish there were more modern options for it.

Why is it every time I get in a position to save money, one of you comes up with a reason for me to take out a loan? ;)


That's gorgeous!

I'll warn you: the arm brace sucks donkey balls...my arms arent to bigg around & I still can't close it all the way...maybe if you were like 5 or something

....but then again, all I gotta do is file for my SBR & be good to go with a shoulder stock & vfg :evil:

Or just leave the brace on the "pistol" & use it as a stock
