Thumper updates

Recommended Posts

I never was much into rifles, but do own a couple .22s and kept an AK47 around mainly for security purposes, along with an AK pistol in 5.56. 
I recently had thoughts of selling the latter (
prices are nutz right now) and buying an AR pistol, thinking that such would be much lighter. But without doing a custom AR build and spending $$$ on ultra-light skeletal parts, they still weigh-in @ 7lbs or so.
I decided to instead do a few cheaper upgrades to my M85, mostly because I wanted something "new" without going broke and it's much cheaper/easier (and fun) to make changes to what you already have...sorta like when the wife wants a new living-room and you end up just painting walls and rearranging the furniture.  lol
Mainly what's new is the paint/stenciling, handguard & brace....mainly. The OD color is most "true" in the vertical pic.
T'was a fun project to tinker on. I have several plain PMAGs but after the hysteria subsides I'll shop around for OD Hex mags.... stencil'n is a PITA en masse.

Sorry....I can take my "Thumper" to most any range, whereas you'd have a real problem there with an M79.
