As I was watching some news tonight they kept showing fence cops packing weapons,I could swear I saw an M-1 carbine, and a couple Ruger mini 14 or mini 30, and of course all kinds of sub guns, a very few H&Ks but mostly strange looking things I couldn't identify, don't these guys have a standard hardware selection,it looked they drug out any old thing they could arm them with,it's no wonder they get the asses handed to them so often!

I understand that the French police use a locally produced FA version of the Mini 14 to replace M1 carbines. The French seem to believe the Ruger as less offensive to the public than a military rifle.

guns

Is there another carbine out there with the sling slot in the stock? Or are they still packing our left over Carbines?

Possible, since Bill Ruger himself was a flagrant gun banner and would not sell AC-556's to the public before 86 and won't factory support them now. He was a gun banning NRA fudd loving elitist member right to the end. I wonder if the French give their guys bullets or just post soldiers as guards with no ammo like we did after 9/11 at all the airports? After all who you gonna trust with a gun to ID terrorists at the airport, a manic depressive trans-gender cross dressing TSA agent X-raying your junk for amusement, or a special forces guy coming back from a 12 month tour?

Not to worry, we are using the same screening process today as we did for the Tsarnaev brothers a couple years back. And that's on the ones that come in the front door announced. What could possibly go wrong? We are told we have technology that can detect a real time fresh warm mouse turd under a bush in the dark from a satellite, but we can't see 10 million illegals landscaping during the day across the street from the metro police station?
Golly - I could not have worded any of that any better. Well done!

The manic depressive trans-gender part brought an instant chuckle - thanks!!:D

The quote in the above post is somewhat misleading. Ruger supported me and my damaged AC556 just fine. Now this was a few years ago, but I did get factory support. As a matter of fact, my AC556 had a damaged receiver that could not be repaired. Ruger said it had a casting flaw and they sent me a NIB, fully transferrable AC556 as a replacement. Who could ask for anything more? I've never heard of Colt doing this.

I know of no other NIB AC556 that was not originally sent to a LE agency. Ruger even included a gun lock in the factory box. Now that's funny.










(please notice the little "fun" shifter)

I know this has come up before because i vaguely remember the discussion. How did Ruger handle the transfer of the new receiver? I know there was some trouble with another manufacturer replacing receivers with new , read post 86, and just stamping the original serial # on the new receivers that resulted in a couple of guys losing m-16s.

I sent them my original damaged weapon and after a couple months a new weapon showed up at my door. They even sent me a pre-paid box to send my damaged weapon, with a copy of my Form 4, to them. It was a new gun with new serial number. Transferred back to me on a Form 4. Serial number traces to 1985. I had no cost whatsoever for a NIB weapon.
