Today I’ve got one of Gorilla Ammo’s GF-10 rifles to do some shooting with. It’s an AR-10 platform chambered for 8.6mm Blackout (they also offer it in .243 Win, .260 Rem, 6.5CM, and .308 Win). It weighs in at just 7.2 pounds with a 16″ barrel, so it’s not an NFA item (they do also offer a 12″ pistol pattern). I’ve got my Q Porq Chop on it as a suppressor, and I’m using subsonic ammo – with this combination it is sort recoiling and completely hearing-safe. The loudest part of the gun is the action clacking closed after each shot…
We also took the opportunity today to put a round of Gorilla’s 342gr subsonic expanding ammunition into a block of Clear Ballistics gel – and holy cow. It’s a bullet designed to expand while retaining all its mass, and it sure does. The utility of the 1:3″ rifling of the 8.6mm cartridge is that it provides a massive amount of rotational energy to allow the bullet to expand reliably even if it’s traveling relatively slowly at range. It came out of the gel looking like an honest-to-goodness grappling hook…

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
