Shooting a modified M-16 in full auto

Finally, for the first time, I was able to fire a modified M-16 in full auto. My brother smithed the rifle. He modified the bolt to slow the cyclic rate for better control of the rifle when in full auto. The M-16 almost sounds like an AK-47. I have to travel 7295 miles just to do this:

was this weaon a select fire preban gun to start? you have to be very carefull with the legal issues when playing with full auto toys.

when we converted our m-16 A2's from the origional 20" barrels to a 14.5" upper it cranked the cycled rate up to an amazing rate making the gun out of controle to shoot , after adding a "pigtail" gas tube and a weighted buffer it slowed them down to around 500 RPM. I personaly like a semi auto gun alot better , the full auto shine wears off fast wehn you have to load mags so much more often not mention the cost of ammo these days.

very cool vido though

That's okay James, the long arm of the ATF can't touch this one. Philippines is out of their jurisdiction. Just got back from the PI visiting my brother's gunsmithing shop. Took several photo's and videos of his work.

Here's one...a Para-STI hybrid. The Para Ordinance frame was modified to accept an STI slide. The beaver tail safety, trigger, fiber optic front sight, Elliason rear sight and the exotic wood grip are all handmade.

At least the 2nd Amendment is alive and well there; courtesy of their corrupt bureaucracy. Just look at this Glock Model 24 that my brother is converting into a machine pistol. We can only dream of owning one of these here.


My brother make and install this piece into the Glock slide and convert it into a fire breathing dragon.


Here it is in white


Here's what it look like after anodizing


Finished product ready to rock in roll
