    You gotta like the ppsh!

    Cyclic rate has got to make even an anti-gunner want one!
    I hate to ask, was it real or bfong? I never saw water spray.

    Yes sir the third one.

    I figured it out after I watched the first one. I guess that means the bfong you guys make are dead on the money! Congrats all around!
    That you in the Peak cap with the cig in #3?
    What caught the van, etc, on fire? tracers, API, somebody leave gas in it?
    And finally, how far from KY is that shoot? I may have to visit my dad next time and drop in.

    No, not me, thats Chuck. I'm in Texas and he is in Ohio...I only get up there a couple of times a year.

    After talking to Chuck, just sear volume of fire...they shot up 2 that day.

    Not sure...I'll get the info on the shoot.

    The rear sight hops around when shooting it as seen in the video. The flip up sight can be seen bouncing around during most of the shots. Will the new production ones have a detent or something to prevent this? Watching the video gets me excited to recieve mine.

    On our original MP40, the rear sight flops around just like in the video. We are currently working on a way to prevent this.

    Must be a worn part somewhere if the original flops around. You'd think they'd have made a way to keep them from doing that. Not a big deal in my book but just something I noticed.
