Let's have a lighter side moment.

I was at the range the other day and saw what I had before only heard of on the internet. A cheap rifle, with a <16" barrel with an abnormally long pinned muzzle brake (barrel may have been 11", with 5+ inches of brake), UTG rail (and rail covers), generic VFG, cheap scope (looked 3-9), and an NCstar red dot with some random off-set mount.

Your job is to make something to sell to this fine gentleman.

I'll start.

A vertical foregrip that attaches to the bayonet lug. It folds forward (like an AUG). It can be marketed as freeing up rail-space for your iPhone holder.

AR-15 mag spinner...

A spinning wheel and a clamp are attached to one mag, a second mag goes in a clamp attached to the spinner which spins on ball bearings. As you shoot the gun the recoil impulse forces the swivel to turn. It's just like a set of spinners on a hooptie except it holds an AR mag..

Fo schizzle...

That may just take the cake, but only if the second magazine is chrome plated.

The ultimate WTF with that ridiculous POS was that he told you it was GTG on an unregistered SBR.

So wait... if I put your sideways stock on my face, I'm OK with the law, but if I put a normal stock on my face... I'm not?

What if I put your sideways stock on my shoulder and hold the gun sideways?

Dude should be open-palm-slapped on whatever side of his skull he's been using his face stock on...

This isn't a thread to critique those who use cheap, Chinese, airsoft-quality, legally dubious, self-injury inflicting gear. It is to design a new AR-15 lego piece to sell to those who use cheap, Chinese, airsoft-quality, legally dubious, self-injury inflicting gear. See the difference?

I didn't get past the stock on face part. My face is #2 on the list of places I don't want a rifle recoiling against, you can probably guess what is #1. It is only a matter of time before some idiot does a "hold my beer" and puts a .50 BMG upper on one of those and knocks himself out (and knocks his teeth out, and breaks his jaw).

AR-15 parallel rail - lets you mount a Chinese ACOG to your Chinese ACOG - One for each eyeball! ITS BINOCULAR SHOOTING! Makes the target twice as dead, guaranteed!*

Guarantee only valid if you can actually hit the target. Let's face it, if you're buying this junk, you probably can't hit the broad side of a barn from inside.
