Jerry Miculek and Unicorn Guns

By Dave Dolbee published on in Videos

Jerry visits the Institute of the Military then goes outside to check out the performance of a prototype full-auto AR-10 also known as the grandfather of the AR-15, M16 and many others. Watch this video to see Jerry in action!

    “WOW” This is such a very AWESOME AR 10. It’s too bad the US did
    not go into full product of this very advance rifle for the US as a battle rifle. I believe if I had this rifle in my hands I would not let it out of my hands. It is such a very light weight rifle for a full Auto at only 6 pounds. I will never get a chance to get this AR 10. it is nice to know we had such a well made rifle..
    I would be like you Jerry in HOG heave to shoot the AR 10 at full AUTO. Thanks for the very awesome information Jerry.

    Sorry, I can find your webmaster’s address.

    I enjoy reading the Shooters Log, but the grey font is very hard to read. Please bump it up to black.

    A well made gun, unfortunately it was apparently too advanced for the times. The most amazing thing was to see the Slo Mo of Jerry on high cyclic rate full auto. A light weight rifle with full .308 cal battle ammo and the muzzle looked like it was in a vise in terms of how much it wavered. Very, very impressive indeed..

    I am extremely well versed on the AR-10’s historic significance and role in AR history, but seeing Jerry get the opportunity to fire an original was quite enjoyable. If anyone deserved such a pleasure, it was most definitely Jerry.

    Watching Mr. C. Reed Knight Jr. walk away with his AR-10 at the last there, I couldn’t help but imagine he was saying to himself, “I’ll just be getting this back in the vault now”.

    I don’t believe the Institute of Military Technology is open to the public. It is by private invitation only, so that alone should have been nice for Jerry. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I’m sorry, but can we change the graphic from the “trying to be intimidating” old man to something a bit less laughable? He looks like an old dwarf past his prime. It’s embarrassing.
