I don't have that book. Can you describe it?

Description:

Quote:

"Our primary weapon was the SIR, standard infantry rifle. The wood furniture made it look like a World War II gun; I guess composite materials were too hard to mass-produce. I’m not sure where the SIR supposedly came from. I’ve heard it was a modcop of the AK. I’ve also heard that it was a stripped-down version of the XM 8, which the army was already planning as its next-gen assault weapon. I’ve even heard that it was invented, tested, and first produced during the siege of the Hero City, and the plans were transmitted to Honolulu. Honestly, I don’t know, and I so don’t care. It might have kicked hard, and it only fired on semi, but it was super accurate and it never, ever jammed! You could drag it through the mud, leave it in the sand, you could drop it in saltwater and let it sit there for days. No matter what you did to this baby, it just wouldn’t let you down. The only bells and whistles it had was a conversion kit of extra parts, furniture, and additional barrels of different lengths. You could go long-range sniper, midrange rifle, or close-combat carbine, all in the same hour, and without reaching farther than your ruck. It also had a spike, this little flip-out job, about eight inches long, that you could use in a pinch if your Lobo wasn’t handy. We used to joke “careful, you’ll poke somebody’s eye out,” which, of course, we did plenty. The SIR made a pretty good close combat weapon, even without the spike, and when you add all the other things that made it so awesome, you can see why we always referred to it, respectfully, as “Sir.”

Our staple ammo was the NATO 5.56 “Cherry PIE.” PIE stands for pyrotechnically initiated explosive. Outstanding design. It would shatter on entry into Zack’s skull and fragments would fry its brain. No risk of spreading infected gray matter, and no need for wasteful bonfires. On BS duty, you didn’t even have to decap before you buried them. Just dig the trench and roll the whole body in."

That description is silly. Speaking of World War Z, the whole book is a testament that Max Brooks doesn't know shit about guns and other military Equipment.

How's this?

Ace Oliveira 11-22-2009 11:39 PM

That's what I had in mind as well. Except more tactilol. After all, it was inspired by the XM8.

Yep, just read the "It might have kicked hard"... Seriously, WTF? It´s 5,56, not .308...

BTW, here´s mine, with MS Paint modifications:

How's this? AK reciever, XM8 stock, pistol grip and modifed hand gaurd, G36 carry handle. Supressor to allow hiding from zombies and a flip-out bayonet for close combat (which, against zombies, is a very bad idea)

I heard they're gonna make a World War Z movie.

This thing sounds like an AK and the guy who wrote it must be an AK fan of some sort.

I have to agree. When reading the description, an AK-type rifle is what I saw in my head.
