So...  Basically his one complaint is that its difficult to disassemble.   
      
1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

The wanker shoulda done an encore at the end....got himself a bit of Garand thumb, Oh.... and with a Garand, beware of this.....thunk....mummy :o that nice dull meaty thud kinda like a meat tenderizer on a slab of beef thumb1

Nothin funnier than watching a Brit swear and curse, especially when a few drops of pee emerge.... rofl2

 Almost as funny as my yankee wife when she goes nuts on me chuckles1
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Most amusing! I learned at a very early age from my Dad and his relatives that carried the Garand in battle that the "ping" giving away a soldier was bull ****. Those men were very proficient and deadly with what Gen Patton called "the greatest battle implement the world has ever known".
