Still on the 5.56x45mm upper receiver that was swapped out to install the AR 57 upper receiver.

The AK-47 can't jam because its round has an anti-jam mechanism built into it.

Not really a story, and there's nothing wrong with scoping a slug gun.

A scope for a shotgun even if it's slug is useless. A slug does not have the range to require a scope. A red dot maybe or just better irons.

Then why does Remington sell that Slug barrel/Telescopic Scope combo package for the Remington 870?

Plus, video games don't usually use slugs.

Ive met so many people who claim a military ak47 can use .223 ammo. Now i saw a test of this, the round fired, but didnt hit the target, due to bore difference, it overexpanded in chamber, got stuck, and had to be field stripped to remove. this shows that even if it can fire the round it is not acombat advantage at all.
