Shot Show 2013 Part 2: Magpul Bus, Costa's Satchel, & Belt Fed AR

My coverage of Shot Show 2013 continues.  If you missed part one, be sure to check it out.  Without further ado...

Magpul Minibus & New Products

Wow, a mini bus with a mini gun!  Creative and shiny!  Magpul has a built a pretty cool mini bus and put it on display in their both.  Oh yea, I guess they released an assortment of new plastic furniture, mags, and AK products.  I've heard that they are playing catch up on on PMAGs, but when they get caught up they will be rolling out 10 and 25 round .308 mags.  The AK furniture looks pretty cool, but I feel like it doesn't take much to make an AK look pretty.

Taurus Carbine

Ah cool more pistol carbines!  Taurus has a new line of carbines chambered in 9mm, .40SW, and .45 ACP.  There isn't a lot of information on these carbines, but they are rumored to take standard Taurus mags.  No word on price or availability.

Slide Fire's Belt Fed Rifle

If I had a nickle for every time someone had a prototype belt fed AR upper I'd have about 35 cents.  All of these magical uppers seem to be press released, never sold, and vanish.  I'm hoping Slide Fire actually brings this product to market, but I'm not holding my breath.  No word on pricing or availability.  Btw, CA gun owners if you link more than 10 rounds it is still considered a high cap... Sorry :(

Chris Costa's Satchel

OMG Costa has a new backpack!!!  If it is like any other Costa product, it will be instantly out of stock.  The Hive Satchel is one of those single strap bags that doesn't look overtly tactical.  It is meant to discreetly carry a firearm, but it looks like it built to hold a bike helmet.  For the low price of $195, this Costa bag can be yours!

Belt Fed Zombie Attack AR15

Hurry up firearms manufacturers, the Zombie train is leaving the station!  Despite the over used zombie clichés this rifle has some cool elements.  Check out the vid, and I'll give you some more info on the parts.

The upper is a belt fed Valkyrie Armament conversion which uses saw belts that attach via the standard AR mag well.  There was another company called Shrike making belt fed uppers which seemed to be surrounded by problems.  They were taking people's money, and products were never materializing.  Valkyrie has lots of good reviews and for the low price of $3,600 they can convert a rifle you already own. 

Why the hell would you add a n00b tube to the front of this rifle?  The 37mm launcher is a Spikes Tactical Havoc which is only used for "signaling" and costs about $300.  You can also see the Leupold scope with zombie markings as well as the neon green Sure Fire on the front.  Hornady zombie ammo can be seen in the belt, because it probably works better on zapping zombies.  Also of note is the bump fire stock which has been mentioned here before. 

Overall this is a cool idea for a DIY machine gun, but it isn't by any means cheap.  Not counting the cost of the rifle, I'm guessing this zombie attack rifle will probably set you back about $5000.  One could argue that the scope, flashlight, and 37mm aren't really necessary.  I guess the "poor man's" version, would be the bump fire stock with a Sure Fire 60 round mag or one of those cheapy gun show 100 round drums.
