Gun-porn at its best and most extensive

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have a look at this web site, and forget about doing any proper work for at least two days !!

    Modern Firearms - Handguns - Intro

    As a “reference” or “introduction”, it seems excellent.

    I’m not sure about the “.ru” suffix. Of those models about which I have some knowledge, the descriptions seem to be well researched and accurate.
     
  2. Been using this site for a couple of years now.

    Don't be put off by the '.ru', it has been useful for identifying unusual and less common weapons.

    Q.
     
  3. The guy who has put the site together is Russian. Hence .ru.
     
  4. I see a contender for Gun Porn of the Year. The Bul Cherokee 'Spec-Ops'

  5. That is what I thought.

    I imagined he might have "whitewashed" the description, characteristics, of "eastern European" (Russian/Ukraine) weapons, but he seems to "tell-it-like-it-is".

    He seems to have done his research - a hell of a lot of it - and gives a fair account of all the weapons.

    I did not know of - and, I am therefore surprised at - the number of manufacturers in what we (now) refer to as "central Europe" . . . Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Serbia.
     
  6. You are kidding right? Companies like CZ have been on the market since before the second world war. Bulgarians copies of the AK47 are still amongst the cheapest (apart from the China stuff) and Romania and Poland have traditionally been suppliers to what was once the mighty USSR. Most of those weapons manufactured before the fall of the wall are still in circulation.

    There is both tradition and skill in those countries for the manufacturing of arms small and large. The website is quite possibly the most comprehensive on guns and ammo you can come across and is used quite widely even by LE (I am told).
     
  7. No. Not kidding. As I wrote, I was/am quite surprised (and, now embarrassed), to learn the breadth and depth of fire arms manufacturing throughout what we (now) refer to as "central Europe" . . . Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Serbia.

    (My background is automotive industry - sales & marketing. I know/knew where all the automotive factories are/were in west, central and east Europe. I've visited a good number of them in Russia, Poland, and Sweden).

    For those having more than an occasional interest in just the 9mm Browning, I found another web site that might be of interest . . .

    THR - Powered by vBulletin

    I cannot imagine such discussions been allowed - never mind encouraged - in this country any more!
     
  8. I have been using THR for a few years now, its a good site with a fair few kooks (like any site I guess) but some good depth of knowledge!
