You may remember our previous story on the Robinson Armament RAV02 MC assault carbine/subcarbine (the "RAV" acronym is pronounced "Rave") that we published awhile back. Well, now you can download and view MPEG and AVI format video of the RAV02 MC assault carbine/subcarbine being fired/demonstrated (You can do this by clicking on "Read More" hypertext below and then clicking on one of the links at the end of this story).
The RAV02 MC is a true assault carbine/subcarbine, in that it is select-fire and has full-auto capability. It’s not just one of those semi-auto-only military-style rifle/carbine’s that the major networks (news), CNN, and certain U.S. senators and congressmen/congresswomen from California and New York think is an "assault rifle". This one’s the real deal, and, I must say, looks pretty good.
The RAV02 MC was designed/developed for U.S. military Special Operations use. Here’s what Robinson Armament says about the RAV02 MC assault carbine/subcarbine: "Our latest project, the RAV02 MC (Pronounced "RAVE") was very successful. It can be chambered for 5.56 NATO; 7.62x39mm; and 5.45x39mm. It was developed and tested to current military specifications. Soldiers who have shot it prefer it hands down over the…
M4 Carbine. Even using the 7.62x39mm round, it is as accurate as an M4 Carbine. it can digest steel or brass cased ammunition fed through AK47 magazines and drums. The Rifle Features the S.I.R. (Swan Integrated Rail System) which give the rifle Accessory Rails (Picatinny Rails) at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 O’clock positions. The reliability also surpasses the M4 Carbine."
Sounds pretty good, huh? Let’s just hope the gun lives up to the hype. Currently the RAV02 MC assault carbine/subcarbine is only available to military end users.
