No, I made the site years ago. The product I put on was a Sidelok Picatinny riser and the post date was 24th Nov 2015. I bung on a few products every now and again (or rather write the descriptions and have one of our resources in the Philippines put them on) to keep traffic up. It's a few hundred bucks a month for virtually no effort.

 

Late edit: I am a Brownells affiliate.

It took me a while to figure out why a whack on the front to the thing wouldn't cause it to fall off.

Proprietary mags; not good for civilian sales.  Mags have become the bottleneck in modern rifle production.  If your design doesn't take the 'classic' mags for the given caliber, you're hamstrung from the outset.

tHat looks a M16 pattern magazine well. The 7,62*39 magazine looks like most 7,62 magazines for M16 converted to fire the M43 cartridge. The extreme curve is typical. But these magazines look awkward and from all I hear are often not really working satisfactorily in most cases.

Those mags in 7.62x39mm suck reliability wise.

Grot means spear- or arrowhead. Befitting, but deviating from the mineral theme sadly. :(

If they are selling this thing to the English speaking world, they might want to rethink the name :)

The Poles know how to honor their own

http://www.thefirear...-service-rifle/

The Historical Significance Behind the Name of Poland’s New Service Rifle

"On 30 November, at a snowy official ceremony was held in Warsaw, in front of a monument to Stefan Rowecki, the the first GROT rifles were handed over to the Wojska Obrony Terytorialnej – WOT (Polish Territorial Defence Force). The ceremony was attended by two surviving members of the Home Army,   Colonel Jerzy Majkowski and Major Zbigniew Matysiak."

Fist one thousand "GROT" rifles delivered to the Polish Army.

 

http://www.milmag.pl...iew?news_id=432

 

 

 

15 grudnia mury Fabryki Broni opuściła ostatnia w tym roku partia 5,56-mm karabinków podstawowych Grot C16 FBM1/MSBS-5,56KA0. Tym samym Łucznik dostarczył, ściśle zgodnie z zapisami umowy tysiąc nowych konstrukcji strzeleckich do Wojska Polskiego. Pierwsza transza ponad dwustu karabinków została uroczyście przekazana przedstawicielom Wojsk Obrony Terytorialnej (WOT) pod pomnikiem generała Stefana Roweckiego (Grota) 30 listopada
