FUNC­TION OVER STYLE?

Airgun World - - Contents -

I have been in­volved with guns of all types, in­clud­ing dur­ing my army ex­pe­ri­ence in the ‘50s. The P38 Luger, Colt Peace­maker, and the AK-47 are good ex­am­ples of the orig­i­nals, but when I look at the Prophet, or the FX DLC-Tac, it might well be ac­cu­rate, but there’s no style or a line of beauty – built by an en­gi­neer with no style. Now, the Stoeger

XM1 combo has style, as well as the Daystate Re­vere. Let’s be more artistic. Sorry if I’ve touched a nerve!

Ooh, Brian, you’ve kicked the hor­nets’ nest, there, mate! I have to say I’ve never re­garded an AK-47 as par­tic­u­larly stylish, but each to their own. I know one thing, though; the more suc­cess I have with a ri­fle, the pret­tier it be­comes. - Ed

There’s no deny­ing the ef­fec­tive­ness of these ‘en­gi­neer-de­signed’ guns so does their style re­ally mat­ter? - Ed
