SAI Drill Budget Battle Rifle

Postby Allanea » Wed Jan 28, 2015 8:03 pm

SAI Drill budget battle rifle

SAI Drill prototype version (top) and final variant (bottom)


[image credit goes to the player of Imeriata]
Overall length: 1000mm
Caliber: .308/7.62x51mm/7.62x39mm/7.62x57mm

Magazine: 20/30 rounds (all FN-FGR compatible magazines can be use in the .308 version, standard AK magazines can be used in the 7.62x39mm version).
Weight: 3.5 kilograms
Rate of fire: 600 RPM (cyclic) (Safe/Semi/Auto)
Price: $150

Having produced both a submachinegun and a pistol for the poorest citizens of the world, Eoihanna Soraski was now interested in producing a rifle. This was somewhat difficult, since the Stanley submachine gun was not in itself capable of handling the far greater recoil of the battle rifle round. After some work, however, the engineers at Soraski Arms International (with pre-orders for millions of guns around the world, Eoihanna could now afford to hire a vast team of engineers) implemented a lever-delayed blowback mechanism to reduce the felt recoil of the mighty .308 action to a manageable recoil.

The rifle as designed is capable of accepting the same magazines as the FN Rougecote FGR battle rifle. The only luxury available with this firearm is the presence of 4 Picatinny rails on all four sides of the firearm, though of course accessories would have to be basic and cheap if one is to keep the firearm affordable for the average user. While no plans exist to produce firearms in other calibers at this time, they can be produced at a later date if enough customer demand (at least 100,000 guns/year) exists.

Note: Because of Eoihanna Soraski’s political views, the gun is not available for government purchases except as study samples. Eoihanna Soraski will not sell this gun for use by military forces or law enforcement groups. The only exceptions are either private militaries, or government programs aimed to arm civilians (like the Civilian Marksmanship Program).

We at Soraski Arms International remain dedicated to our cause of providing self-defense products for the poor and disadvantaged. We are happy to respond to customer queries at all times.

But wait, don’t go yet! Would you like to have the media in your nation respond in some way to the creation of this gun? Tour the factory? Anything else? Perhaps your nation’s government or anti-gun organizations are outraged that this firearm exists? Anything is possible!

Dear Ms. Soraski:

Our continuing patronage of your firearms now leads us to purchase large quantities of the Drill Budget Battle Rifle. Per the usual drill, we're buying them for sales to civilians or civilian armament programs only, and we're paying you in Good Delivery-standard gold bullion. The form's going to look rather familiar at this point, but such is the way a "course of dealings" usually works.

Response to Question 2: Like with the quantities of pistols and SMGs we have purchased in the past, we intend for the per annum amount of firearms listed above to be 60% legally imported to the CRE for civilian sales, 40% to be smuggled in "under the radar" to Lady Gracie's sales outlets in Ravenstenskian Kherson and Ravenstenskian Sevastopol.

The budget Battle rifle will contend with the HRan Mk IIIb lasrifle for combat training(K-12) based on deployment and munitions availability. The process of standardization between the various training programmes in the Hobbiest Republic and the low adoption cost will allow a smooth transition away from the current collection of arms currently employed for standard use. The most notable auxiliary arm being the Mosin which is standard equipment for students and irregulars(self-organized civilians) who do not have their own arms. Given the comparable caliber and price point the transition to this clearly superior firearm will take precedent in following programmes for training or uptraining existing units or reservists.

Greetings from the Peace Keeping Forces!

Dear Eoihanna Soraski, we address you now, because your new designs will cause death of hundreds of people. We must prevent it at all cost. Our organisation, the peace keeping forces seeks to ensure world peace and world disarmament through force. We are not like that other weak anti-war movements, we will kill in the name of abolishing war. That is why, we now officially ask you to resign and stop constructing guns. Guns kill people and are evil (even if they sometimes are necessary evil to ensure world disarmament). You are spreading slavery. That is why, here and now, our organisation calls you to help us in disarmament and stop constructing guns.

Should you fail to accomplish given task, Peace Keeing Forces would have no other choice than to kill you for the good of humanity, for you are halting the world pace and disarmament. Disarm now, or we will disarm you by force!

- COMMANDER WOODSTOCK

Dear Ms. Soraski:

We're glad that is the case. Regardless of our differing ideologies, we feel you share a mutual interest with us in providing a means for those who would otherwise be rendered powerless a chance to fight back. We certainly have that sort of ideology in mind.

At any rate, we are pleased to tell you your products are proving to be big sellers in the Republic. Our Sales Department has noted dealer reports that not just the Drill Rifle, but also the Stanley 2 and the ES9 pistol are particularly with first time Dornalian buyers looking to get a useful firearm at a low price, but "want something diferent" than the usual gamut of Kalashnikov or AR-pattern or FAL-type rifles. Plus, our sales staff have recieved glowing reports the Drill Rifle is surprisingly good at handling the kinds of "shiny future ammo" we use. That is, cartridges with explosive bullets, self-contained plasma cartridges, etc. We have attached excerpts of these favorable reports to this message for your consideration.

Please do not hesitate to inform us of any further products you make. We can't wait to see what comes down the pipeline!

Appendix A: Reviews

Terry Magazine, February Issue, "Top Ten Value Firearms"

"...the Drill Rifle may be one of the better Value Rifles we've had the pleasure to come across. It may not look like much, and the lack of a stock is something which made shooting occasionally difficult[...]but its ability to handle even the crappiest 7.62 NATO cartridges certainly astounded us. The 4-rail capacity for mounting optics and accessories is also nice. We've added a NORINCO Type 99056 Combined Forward Grip and Electronic Detonator unit for testing purposes, mated it with some 7.62 NATO airburst exploding cartridges made by Uncle Jimbo's, and let the bullets fly. I don't think I've ever seen a Yugo pull a 720degree flip in the air before, but hey, there's a first time for everything[...]"

The Gentleman Gunner Magazine--"Can a low-cost firearm actually be any good?"

"At first glance, it's hard to see why consumers are in love with this rifle which is selling like hotcakes. It's like a cheap vodka--it looks a bit clunky, and it's not a gentle ride when you get onboard. But, like cheap vodka, it does the job and you can't beat that bargain basement price. Plus, you can improve it if you're a picky consumer like me. In particular, if you're like me and you add a forward grip (and gunsmith on a stock) to control the recoil plus some of Uncle Jimbo's Alien Hunter Plasma Cartridges in 7.62 NATO--yes, you read it right, self contained plasma cartridges that energize in the barrel and turn into plasma upon leaving the barrel (which I will review in a later issue)--then you get a fine, formidable weapon which isn't going to let you down[...]

Dakka and Dames Magazine--"Soraski Does It Again"

"[...a]nother fine Soraski product, the 'Drill Rifle' is a near-steal at 150 USD, and works handily as both range toy and practical self-defense arm. Having field tested it on security jobs with some Romanian Bonks in Transylvania hunting down a coven of vampires preying on local villages, I can say I trust it with my life and my Holy Bullets. No seriously, I was given 7.62 NATO Jacketed Hollow Point bullets that were blessed by a local Romanian Orthodox Priest and coated in holy water-based resin with little crosses cut into it and a filler made out of wood (a sort of ministake) and mixed with a bit of silver to hunt vampires. The concoction fed a lot better than you'd expect."

How many guns will your nation’s citizens order per year?: A one time purchase of 50,000 SAI Drill Budget Battle Rifles [Chambered in 7.62x39mm]
Are they being bought legally or illegally? [ ]Legally [ ]illegally [X] A mix [specify]

In accordance with international law and the rules stated by your company, the Democratic Republic of Mizrad is purchasing weapons with which to arm both it's citizens [Legally] and the citizens of our neighbor country, Firmador due to the civil war that is occuring in said nation. The more illegal part of this deal would be arming the resistance that has risen in Firmador against the collapsed government. It is hoped that with these weapons they can both protect and eventually be capable of governing themselves.

For a brighter future,
The Democratic Republic of Mizrad

Dear ADE C.E.O.
We would like to purchase this weapon for Military Police purposes. Due to Communist riots for us allowing Nazis to hold a rally. We will need this rifle to "Neutralize" the rioters.

Dear SAI,
The Nepenisea Paramilitary Force (NPF) has few weapons. We, as a private army feel that we must have weapons. So we are ordering weapons.
