VIDEO - CMMG's AR Muzzle Loading Upper
A manufacturing company named CMMG has developed a muzzle loading upper for the AR rifle with a 20 inch barrel. Ignition is achieved by a primed 5.56 (.223) case that's been adapted to take a #209 primer.
The case is loaded through the magazine to shoot and is manually ejected afterward for the next shot.
Everything is nitro coated to be corrosion proof.
The video shows the rifle being loaded and fired with 150 grains of Pyrodex pellets and a Powerbelt bullet.
Now the unit will undergo molecular particle testing for barrel integrity.
Here's the video:
Here's a link to the original thread if anyone would like to follow it for new developments:

If obama gets elected it may be the only kind of AR our kids will be able to buy. Maybe they can export them to England or Australia.
