Firing the M777 155mm Howitzer

All this Obama gun talk is giving me high blood pressure and I haven't felt like writing up anything lately.  All I can say is that I will definitely be getting a lifetime membership to the NRA.  Anywho, here's some footage of my first field-ops with the Marines firing the m777 howitzer back in early December 2012.


  1. I randomly found this blog; did you ever get that bolt head to work on the 88 Commission rifle?
    pls email me

  2. Hello,

    I never got the bolthead to work. I think it would need machine work and even then neither of the extractors would work. So even if you did mill out the bolt face deeper it would just be a single shot and you would need a cleaning rod to extract the case.


Feel free to comment whatever's on your mind. Because of junk/spam bots it might take up to a week to get approved. Due to the nature of my day job as a traveling, overseas consultant I don't have access to internet a lot of times so I might not respond.
