With all the talk of “assault” weapons going around these days, we thought it would be a good idea to shop around and see if we can find the most outlandish weapons you can legally get your hands on. So far, we have not been disappointed.
Enter the OA-98 AR Pistol — a product whose very appearance is sure to give your average gun-grabbing liberal a literal heart attack. As you can imagine, the handgun’s unusual design is bested only by its complicated history.
Initially introduced on the market as the OA-93 in 1992, the AR-15 pistol variant was deemed illegal for use just years later when the United States Congress passed the historic 1994 Crime Bill — which mandated the manufacturer to make serious adjustments in order to continue selling them. Soon after, the OA-93 was remade into the OA-96, which featured a welded ammunition well.
Now, the OA-98 has detachable magazines, but has been drastically “skeletonized” in order to remain legal for sale. The end result was the stripping of a lot of features, as well as reduced weight.
Of course, the gun looks cool — but does it actually have any functional value? YouTube user Forgotten Weapons has a full review of the product, which you can watch below and come to your own conclusion.
