Does anyone have a link to a picture of the UK legal AR-15 style lever action rifle? I can't find it anywhere. I saw it about a month ago and am trying to locate it again. :confused:

As far as I know, there is no possible such animal as a AR-15 (seminauto, magazine fed) lever action.

There is! I've seen it. It is very cool. Except, of course, it is no longer semi-auto. It is a lever action in which the lever action chambers each round. That's what makes it UK legal.

Are you talking about the pump action AR-15? I've never thought about the possibility of a lever action AR-15; it would be rather difficult to make.

I've never thought about the possibility of a lever action AR-15; it would be rather difficult to make.Especially since the lever and the magazine would have to occupy the same space at the same time. :)

The pistol grip is the handle of the lever action. It's really quite neat. :)

there are types where the charging handle is adapted in various ways to make it easier to work for manual operation. http://www.southern-gun.co.uk/displayproducts.php?catid=1
There are also ones which have a slot milled in the side of the upper for a FAL-type charging handle.

Yep, I saw those. Someone had a picture of a version in which the pistol grip is the handle of the lever. It was pretty cool. I can't find that picture anywhere. :p

I'm not sure that's it. I thought the one I looked at used the pistol grip (the one at the trigger) to cycle the action. ??? :confused:

That's the only one I found as well... and it seems that the "lever" is just a pump design.

Seems to be a pump to me. There are another version out a while ago sold in America, only saw pics, never the actual gun. The front grip worked like the slide on a shotgun, looked similar (front grip) also.

Ohen, same thing was done to a few AKs, I believe.

Argh, it was on ar15.com, and I originally found the link at saysuncle.com, uncle's link is still there, but the ar15 link is dead. Arrrgh!
