Larry Vickers Running ARES DEFENSE ARES-16 AMG-2

This is a pretty impressive system. I like the fact that it’s piston driven with barrel interchangeability  as simple as any AUG. The icing on the cake is that at the drop of a hat you can transition from a USGI 30 round 5.56 magazine to a belt fed system. Very interesting indeed.
