Another robbery with a military assault rifle.

I had to look twice when I got the e-mail on this one. Prepare for the next round of anti-2A bills from the peanut gallery.

3. SKS?

At least they didn't call it an AK47.

But it is "obviously" a "high powered bolt action Mosin Nagant rifle"

4. I rofl'ed at the first comment from the link:

USER 10 months ago

HOW DARE STUPID AMERICAN CHILD USE GLORIOUS SOVIET WEAPON FOR PETTY ROBERRY? IS RIFLE WITH LEGACY OF WAR, NOT FOOLISHNESS. TO USE RIFLE FOR IDIOT IDEA MAKE SERGEI MOSIN ROLL IN GRAVE. ALL OF RUSSIA DISAPPOINTED IN WASTED YOUTH.



And at least he kept his finger off the trigger in the top picture - nice to see a safety-conscious robber...

6. Mosin Nagant carbine.

That thing would have some crazy recoil without a stock.

7. Yeah. Goes to show the robber's never fired it before.

Or if he did, he's a glutton for punishment; my Mosin leaves bruises if I don't brace 'er just right before firing. I can't imagine trying to fire that gun without a stock.

8. That's not an "assault rifle," but a bolt action hunting or plinking rifle of some sort.

Actually, it looks more like an older military style sniper rifle now that I look closer, but I can't tell from that picture alone.

You would think the one thing you Gungeoneers would know something about is the definition of different sorts of firearms. Looks like some of you don't even know that much.

9. or a basic bolt action battle rifle

looking at the bolt handle, it is an old bolt action military rifle. Sniper/hunting rifle depends on who is using it.

the word facetious comes to mind.

12. It looks too short to be a 91-30 or 44 bolt

That's why I wondered if it was a cut down SKS. The length looks more like the charging handle for an SKS than an older M-N bolt. The SKS is at least semi auto.

But it's hard to tell from that picture.

14. It's a cut down Mosin Nagant ...

... or I'm a monkey's uncle. Probably an M44 with the bayonet removed or an M38. It's short because the stock has been cut down or off.



Woe be unto him if he were to try and fire it from that position: broken collarbone if he's lucky.

I have lots of experience with Mosins: M44s, 91/30s, and M39s. The bolt handle, barrel band, and front sight hood tell the whole story.

15. No, I meant the bolt handle looked too short to me

It looked more like the charging handle on an SKS.

But I just checked my M44 and it really does have a really short bolt handle.

I agree on getting his ribs cracked if he tried to fire it though, not to mention deafened and starting anything in front on fire with the muzzle blast.

16. From Smith & Smith's Book of Rifles, sitting on my lap...

"7.62mm M1944 Carbine. The last of the Mosin Nagant Service weapons; this carbine is basically the same as the M1938 carbine, but has a cruciform section bayonet permanently fixed to its right side. This was the principal shoulder weapon of the Communist Forces in Korea..."

This cruciform appears several inches back of the muzzle on right side, clocked 90 from vertical.

20. I don't see a bayonet ...

... in the OP pic -- that's why I think it's a 38 (or a 44 with the bayonet removed).

21. The reference was to the mount characteristics, not to the presence or no of a bayonet.

17. The picture is kind of blury but it's clear that is a fully automatic ak-47

 

with extended clip/magazine/whatever and likely loaded with hollow-point armor piercing rounds.
