M*CARBO Brotherhood

The GAU 5A rifle

Designed and developed by the USAF. article in popular mechanics here.
https://currently.att.yahoo.com/att/usaf-created-mini-rifle-fits-232300799.html
developed to fit in ejection seat.
lets break it down. to parts. we will start with a higher end SBR, say the Blackbird Sparrow SB,internal suppression.
Black Bird sparrow SB Price$ 3,299.99 https://blackbirdrifles.com/product/sparrow-sp/ then we add Cry Havoc QRB kit 349.00
cryhavoctac.com/qrb-kit.html
and
Fab defense folding grip $53.59

Sampson popup BUIS with tritium $325.00 for the set. Rough price

add $250 for the stamp, another $200 for selector conversion
high end , full auto, suppressed break down survival rifle.

Now comes the kicker why i picked the high end parts. total per rifle $4155.83.
now according to the article, DOD spent 2.7 million dollars for 2,700 of these rifles to deploy. that would be $1,122,074.10 cents total for a suppressed,full auto shorter package. that was designed and built by AIR FORCE armorers.,using internet parts, on M4 rifles they already had, changing to a 12.5 barrel.
profit margin on this, using my expensive BLACKBIRD SPARROW SP as a baseline, still leaves,$1,577,925.90 pure profit for parts.not counting what the gun bunnies got paid to assemble. break down reassy & test time 3 hrs max per rifle/
some one check the math for me, im not that good with those kind of figuresā€¦ i do angles dangles and thicknessā€¦
I want that contract.

I think we need a ā€œLikeā€ bank where you can deposit your unused Likes and earn interest, or take out ā€œLike Loansā€ when you run out. Iā€™d loan you some of my own (at a very low interest rate) but Iā€™m almost out too. :laughing:
