yes they are, lighter, cheaper made...and you don't need a pricey drum to feed them.......just some $15.00 mag's..and easy to suppress........and lasted way longer in the u.s.miltary order of battle records...even up to desert storm.....and a few operating in iraq right now!!

and a few ole tankdriver's still have some strapped on the inside of vehicle's.........try that with a colt 1921ac.......

that fine blue finish,that great wood,getting all marked up and split and cracked.and many fine particle's of sand messing up the action........ah! yes! can't damage the colt........however the greaser........no problem.......run a mag or two through it.it will still be good tommorow..wink!!

yep i like the greaser's to,what you expect a child from the fiftie's to like??take care,ron

ya, just don't drop the greaser or it might run a full mag out before you can pick it up. And keep plenty of sears handy as they wear out and make the thing more sensetive.
One of my friends who's in Iraq right now wanted to take some of my guns as they went from greasers in the late 90's to 16's and his opinion was he was going to drive his buldozer over either of them at his first opertunity and get something that worked. Several of their 16's before they were reisued had designation XM-16. Sad state of the world durring the klinton era that we couldn't have updated all are small arms so even National Guardsman carried a gun younger than them.
Think we need to dump the ss-109 and go back to 1-12 twist and 55 grain pos bullets that broke apart or get something like the G-36 and chamber it in something like a streched 7.62x39 and get 7mm Mauser balistics. Course if we had followed King Richard III's (the Lion Hearted) advice we would have turned most of the mid east to glass slag by now and small arms would be academic.
