That's Adam Savage, a noted special effects guru and co-host of the Discovery Channel show MythBusters.

I prefer AR-pattern rifles.

So do I. Wink

Almost done with my latest build an LR-308. The only thing it still needs is the Geissele SD-C that is sitting in the parts box installed.

But the point was that the AK-47 went into service prior to 1950 so it fits into Cetaceaphile's parameters.

Got a guide rod laser for my Beretta 92fs yesterday - it was on sale at Beretta at 35% off. Big Grin

I installed it and it is perfectly aligned with the iron sights. Thumbsup

The Beretta 92fs doesn't have night sights, so adding a laser sight is a good option for low-light conditions.

This is the sidearm adopted by the U.S. Military in 1985. It has been in use since 1990, replacing the venerable Model 1911A1 .45 ACP.
