Cool The perfect jeep gun

Back in the end of May, I started a little project with my gunsmith/machinist to make the perfect rifle for my jeep, an Underfolder H&R Handi Rifle. And this is what he worked up for me:





Folded OAL is 21.5" without the device, unfolded is 33.5" (and before someone has a heart attack, the feds measure from the unfolded position so this is 100% legal). The adapter is welded to the receiver and the grip is a modified magpul AK grip. For now its just in .223 but I have 7.62x39 and .357 mag barrels inbound. It has a 16.5" threaded barrel and is tipped with a Noveske KX3 linear comp. Scope is a Redfield Revolution 2-7x32 on Vortex rings. The barrel is an older ejector model and I upgraded the internals myself to prevent any issues there. Receiver has upgraded hammer springs to set off 5.56 and already has a sweet trigger so no worries there. So far, it shoots amazing and the KX3 really takes out some of the bark (sounds about like a long barreled .223 to me).

It's really not gonna win a beauty contest but dang it sure is handi! I absolutely love it and will be starting on a second and improved model soon. But anyways folks, hope yall like it!

I like it! So do you have a mount inside your jeep for stowing it?

Well if you call the space between the passenger seat and console a mount, definitely lol the gun rack I made back in March is actually too wide for it. I am thinking about having a scabbard made for it that'll strap to some MOLLE seat cover from King's Arsenal I'm getting eventually though. It'll also hold my spare barrels hopefully. Just depends if I can find some high speed low drag tacticool tailor operator to make me one without making it cheaper to go leather haha

I'm thinking that this will be the direction that I head for my pack.

"Government is not the solution, it is the problem."
"We are never defeated unless we give up on GOD."
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be protected, and handed on for them to do the same."

I don't mind their carbines. They are the ugly stick they were beat with but they work every time
