Metal-less gun (almost)

Just watched the 10 o'clock news, which had a quick featurette on a new kind of firearm (the newsies of course called it an assault weapon) made mostly of carbon fiber, that comes through the airport X-ray machine looking very much like a hair curler or some such innocuous device.

The TV showed somebody (ATF people perhaps?) holding the firearm, but one couldn't get much of a good look at it it the 4 seconds it was on.

Hadn't hear about this--what sort of a firearm is it?? Available to the general populace?? Caliber?? Accuracy??

Hmm. If you go all plastic except for barrel, maybe gas system, and some springs, I could see the thing looking like a hair curler.

Too bad it would likely not hold up very well to heavy use.

Another "Much Ado About Nothing" on the part of the antis. And the deliberately uninformed.

Thx for the responses.

Pretty much. Discussion continued on the other thread.
