This is why gun control will never work! Criminals always have guns.
“Brazil’s population is over 200 million. The Homicide rate is 25.2 per 100,000, six times as high as that in the United States. Another study puts it at 32.4 per 100,000.”

Russia has strict gun control , it has a violent crime rate , and murder rate 5 times that of the US .November 4, 2015 at 4:25 pm #44854
Makes one wonder if the crappy Brazilian guns are intentional, to save lives…..November 4, 2015 at 5:26 pm #44858
LOL , Not all of them are crap , I have an FAL with an Inbel receiver , its fine . THe Taurus PT 92 is basically the Baretta 92 , reliable straight shooter …………..other than that I couldn’t say , they might indeed be junk .November 5, 2015 at 4:01 am #44871
Both made under license, or on original machinery.
Hard to screw those up.
However the rest…
Well Taurus is paying out boatloads over the PT series right now.November 5, 2015 at 4:36 am #44876
Yeah , probably no coincidence that they came out with the 92 , after buying the Baretta factory down there . Funny thing about the FAL I have with the Inbel receiver is that its not a metric , but an L1A1 . Magazines are not as hard to get as people think for it , as far as other parts and accessories go , they are mainly British and other Commonwealth . I did get a couple of the 30 rounder mags for it , used in the Bren , they work fine .November 5, 2015 at 12:41 pm #44886
Imbel has made a couple of “inch” receiver runs for export.
The bonus as the Brits found out in the Falklands, the metric mags still work even though they wobble.
As to criminals always having “X”, they’re criminals.
Why would they follow this law in particular, they don’t follow others like don’t murder, don’t sell drugs, don’t rape, don’t steal.November 5, 2015 at 3:59 pm #44889
I was wondering about that , you can get the metric mags all day long , didnt get any because I didnt trust the wobble . That rife is a mish mash . Brazilian receiver , British furniture , Australian flash suppressor , American dust cover with the scope rail , British mags , German scope lol .November 6, 2015 at 12:22 pm #44899
Will do an FAL post in the gear/weapons section.November 7, 2015 at 12:11 am #44923
Good idea, like to learn more about the FAL.
