I've never seen it. Sounds like I'm not missing anything.

There IS a dual drum magazine that is made for the M-16 and M-4 full auto rifles. It is NOT meant for the AR-15 even though it will snap in place. On Sons of Guns the Red Jacket crew built a pair of full-auto M-4s for the Louisiana State Police to mount on a pursuit boat. They had to play with 5 or 6 of the mags to get TWO that worked. The springs are sketchy and the design LOOKS good but works best on FULL auto with rounds being stripped off FAST.

2) I've never had any trouble putting holes in things at 300M even with open sights
3) Except for one bolt-override, in thousands of rounds, I've never had one fail, as long as it was kept clean. 100 rds is not enough to dirty it up enough to fail in an engagement.
4) Full-auto is a waste of ammo. Even in an intense firefight - ESPECIALLY in an intense firefight - I would never use full-auto, unless I was using a SAW with a number of 200 rd magazines handy.
When speaking with swing voters (yes, there really are some truly moderate people left), I often encounter a fierce animus against the gridlock in Washington. They typically blame both political parties for the inability of our leaders to resolve the issues of the day. I reply by informing them that we have entered a period of little compromise. Among the reasons for this environment is Wayne LaPierre and the NRA, and what they’ve caused is not necessarily a bad thing.

To put this in context, I don’t own a gun and I’m not a member of the NRA (although...
