    ...because Areas now makes a Fudd AR15 for you.

    It even has a Remington 870 buttstock.

    Uh...I have a question: Where does the bolt go upon firing?

    Your standard AR has the buffer tube (also part of the stock) which houses the buffer spring which is what forces the bolt to return to the locked position. I don't see how they can have that stock on there and make it "readily accept many AR15/M16 accessories including upper receivers, barrels, BOLTS..." If it weren't for this line, I'd guess they changed the bolt design to something similar to an FAL or AK or anything really of the same basic design. Can anybody explain how they do it? Josh

    The bolt carrier has been modified, and supposedly it is similar to a Benelli shotgun. But I have not seen the actual bolt carrier to know for sure.

    BTW, walnut A1 pattern (triangular) forends are available, and since it takes 870 stocks a walnut buttstock would probably swap. Wouldn't that look cool?

    It is kind of cool looking- but it does defeat the straight line thinking of "real" ARs and all the benefits that is advertised to have such as keeping the rifle muzzle down when you fire.

    I know that with a 223 you think there isnt much recoil but fire one of them full auto and you will have muzzle rise even with the straight line recoil- I know this is a semi auto

    Why???? But, I do like the 22RCU on the website. A 22 rifle based off the Ruger Mark III pistol.

    I think thats more of the female version of a mans weapon, its cute and don't look like an assault rifle ... Thats why I love my Glocks they look like toys with all that plastic on them but in reality they eliminate the threats and are super reliable ... I like the old look and version better, an assault weapon should look like an assault weapon ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Gene... put on a 870 trap stock and you will have a straight line setup!

    If I was of a mind to want an AR-15, I would probably just get the original configuration...you know...the scary, evil black ones with the scary, evil pistol grip and the scary, evil retractable stock, chambered in the scary, evil 223/5.56 NATO.

    Don't forget about the scarey evil rails, flashlights and lazers, and of courses a bayonette lug is mandatory Tim.

    ...So their description is wrong? If they did indeed modify the bolt carrier, that means the line I posted above would not be true. You couldn't take a standard AR bolt and change it out with the current one. There's no way they could put that stock on there and keep the same simple design of the AR. Josh

    There is nothing in their literature or description of this rifle that states that it's an autoloader. It looks like a straight pull "bolt" action repeater.

    If they started with a Bushmaster...would the new model be called the Fuddmaster 15?
