Happy New Year, from Moms Demand Berettas!

Happy New Years, if anyone actually reads this blog.  I guess this would have been more appropriate for Christmas six days ago.  Or maybe she's celebrating Kwanza, making this only five days late.

Fun with stock footage paid for by two anti-gun rights organizations: Paypal and Moms Demand Action, the original footage being here.

In completely unrelated news I'm still waiting for Busta Rhyme's highly anticipated album sequel to his 1998 hit album Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front, which I consider to be one of the most important albums in all of human history.  So far a quick google search reveals no new information regarding this album, despite Busta pimping it out for the past five years and stating he was wrapping up production for a December 2014 release date.

What happened to the Side-fed Sub-Tek .45 Carbine?

A neat concept that has been visited rarely:  A custom upper assembly that feeds magazines from the side and ejects brass to the ground through the lower assembly's magazine well.  The built-in mag-well adapter of the upper eliminates the need for a magazine adapter so you can switch between .223 and .45 quickly.

I actually owned a similar product - The Prexis Sidefed Upper.  It was sold as a kit which the user had to simply press and pin the barrel and affix the magazine well to the side.  I can't get into why I never made a followup post and subsequent live fire video, but just know that I never did and ponder that for a moment.  Hopefully one day I will get to unfuck the mistakes that were inherent to that particular specimen.

Anyways, a gentleman named Daryl Johnson announced this sidefed .45 ACP upper back in 2012.  His website and associated websites are both down, his Facebook and YouTube hasn't been updated since, and the blog from which I originally learned about this from, The Firearms Blog, seems to have deleted their post about this.  Obviously it's dead in the water now with no trace of any possibility of it surfacing anytime soon.  YouTube video and images from his Facebook page posted below.
