Bubba's Franken-Rifle

Sometimes you just have to shake your head wondering what the heck they were thinking. The Tunnel Buster from Gibbs Rifle is one of those things.

It mates the cut-down barreled action of a Springfield 1903A3 with the front sight/flash hider/bayonet lug of an Enfield No. 5 Jungle Carbine and puts it all in a plastic stock. And then they publicize it with this drivel:

Had "Carbine" Williams not invented the M1 Carbine, who would doubt that the U.S. military would have shortened the 1903A3 in a similar fashion to issue to paratroopers jumping at Ste. Mere-Eglise in World War II, Marines at Inchon and Tunnel Rats in Vietnam.
 As a licensed collector of Curios and Relics, all I can say is have they no shame?

  1. Ruger's got their "GSR" which sells like hotcakes. I actually like this better, you can feed it with stripper clips and the sights are click ajustable for windage and elevation. All it needs is a scout mount for a leatherwood 2-7 power scout scope and I'm all in!
