Advanced Armament: 300 BLK Handi Rifles Shipping from AAC

…and it’s about damn time too.

Not throwing that at Advanced Armament mind you, we’ve just been looking forward to it.

This is what the new production batch looks like (from the Facebook page):

Nice eh? The following pictures are from about this time last year when AAC first started talking about a Harrington and Richards Handi Rifle prototype rifle in 300 AAC. At the time it was described as a “…16.1″ barreled break open rifle [that is] 5.8lbs and 29″ overall length. The rifle features Fixed sights, but came drilled and tapped for a scope. The rifle came ready made for a silencer, with the barrel threaded 5/8″-24tpi…”

That’s not the same as the one pictured above, but it gives you and idea what you might expect.

Now, you may be wondering why you should spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars on a 300BLK rifle when the round itself would seem to suggest it belongs more properly in an AR platform. The answer is simple: to prove you’re not a hippie.

If you’re on a budget and can only afford one or the other, then obviously you might prefer the multi-shot option. For those of you who don’t mind a Handi (or just prefer the simplicity of one) this may be perfect.

Besides, it’s from AAC and it’s cool so why not?

If you’re interested, this is a video from ITS at this year’s SHOT Show. It goes into more detail:

Mad Duo Clear

About us (like you don’t know): The Mad Duo is a tactically proficient, witty and insightfully insightful amalgam of several current and former military types whose commentary has been described as like a “.308. op-ed to the head”. Both of them (Swingin’ Dick Kilgore and Slim Call) have PhDs in Advanced Doorkickery, enjoy supporting single dancing moms and are more than happy to help you to their opinions. They can be contacted here, over on Kit Up! or on Under the Radar. These two HSLD litte bad asses are without a doubt the highest speed, lowest drag celebrities of the action figure and steely-eyed snaker-eater world and you are, frankly, to be commended for paying the fuck attention to them.

Swingin' Dick

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
