Armalite AR-10 A4 10A4CF-2

Just as Connecticut proposed the most draconian gun laws in the nation I managed to locate and purchase an Armalite AR-10 A4 or to be more specific an AR10A4 10A4CF-2. The AR10A4 10A4CF-2 is essentially a Connecticut legal (as of February 2013) Armalite AR10A4 Carbine with pinned stock, welded and pinned muzzle device in Armalite green. The AR10A4 10A4CF-2 utilizes Armalite proprietary magazines. Naturally this rifle will turn into an upgrade project withing my now legal limits. Note: The magazine displayed in the rifle is an Armalite factory 25 rounder. In reality the magazine is not as long as it appears. In my excitement I did not fully seat the magazine.
