associated with that tweet was a picture of 2 bolivar nat guard soldiers behind a car with rifles, i'm impressed somebody could tell the chambering from the picture. Good on them, lots of people are better at that game than me.

Plastic top mag is a giveaway.

But I thought they were their own proprietary mags that parallel the barrel on top. Empties eject through the bottom of a regular AR mag well.

Hell of an option against soft armor and volume of rounds carried on a person would be high as weight and size of round is small

That's correct. It's the ammo that is stacked 90* to the barrel.


Time for the tin foil to come out. Looks like that guy with the green 5.7 has some sort of brass catcher in the magwell. Guess they won't be able to collect battlefield brass and point to one specific side doing the shooting when one side has a very specific ammunition....

It's where the mag goes on a traditional M16. In this case, it's hollow to fill up with brass

Bolton just said they were working on some stuff he can't talk about. I'm guessing the fact that Guaido side looks to have a bunch of western arms might have something to do with it :tinfoilhat: .
