For God's sake guys, weapons become platforms when they are used to be the base gun for something else. Is a 1911 with a Pachmayr Dominator atop still a 1911? No, the 1911 is the platform used to make a long-range .308 pistol. Is a Saiga 12 an AK-47? No, but the AK was the platform from which it evolved. Too many people will tell me my Kimber Ultra CDP isn't a real 1911 and then tell me all the reasons why. OK, fine, then my UCDP was somebody's brainchild based on the 1911 platform. You can't have it both ways. If you're going to be so damn technical, don't be surprised or upset if somebody comes up with a workaround.

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.
