1. French Lebel: Bounce it too hard on its buttstock and the pointed rounds in the tube magazine make you an amputee. Only the French would use revolutionary smokeless powder spitzer rounds in a tube fed obsolete platform.

2. Krag-Jorgenson: So shitty we ditched it after only 10 years. Had we faced a real enemy in the Spanish American war, armed with Mausers we would have really been raped in the butt. Plus these have a reputation of blowing up on people thanks to its single locking lug design.

3. Trapdoor Springfield: Read reports of its first years and its sounds like you are talking about the M16 in 1966-1967 in Vietnam. Poor extraction, slow manipulation, and nothing more than a modified muzzleloader. With all the Winchester and Marlin lever guns in 45-70 why not replace it in the 1870's or 1880's?

4. Canadian Ross Rifle:Lets issue a rifle that hasnt been tested in severe conditions. Im sure the poor canucks loved having to kick open their rifles when being charged by German troops

5. Lee Metford Rifle: Cordite 303 and Metford Rifling make you a smooth bore in no time. Miscalculated sights and poor trajectory made it a perfect gun for your enemy if you are a Boer soldier with bright and shiny 1895 Mausers in 7x57mm

6. Berthier Rifle: 3 Shot rifle with a mannlicher clip system. Once again only the French.

7. Berdan Rifle: By the time the Russians started making them for the Imperial army it was obsolete

8. Reising SMG- JAM O MATIC. So bad that the Marines threw them away on the beaches of the south pacific.

9. Madsen M47: The last bolt action rifle ever sold to a military.......in the 1950s. Cool gun just made in a really bad era considering the FN49, FAL, and M1 garand were out there.

10. Vetterli 1915: Take a blackpowder marginally strong action and marry it to a smokless powder round it might handle everytime you pull the trigger.

AR7s are spotty. Some work well and some dont. To me it seems the wrost rifles are the ones we stake our lives on........so basically military guns.

The AR7 is a Bond Gun so atleast it has that.

"From russia with love" where he shoots the guy in the chopper holding the the hand grenade.

I have shot two AR-7's one worked great with some choped 30 round mags and the other jammed about every 4 rounds with its 10's

I love the idea of the rifle, I just wish they all worked well.
