Gun Bunny, Old man Lefty and I are taking my grandfather out to the range to show him a few new guns. Pictures and videos should be online this week.

I finally got to preview the zombie annihilator on Saturday, and I have to say I was very impressed with what I saw. While there were a few minor issues with the weight and cost of the rifle, these were only minor setback to the overall performance of this well designed weapon. Even thought it is a bit on the heavy side the Troy industries forward grip and the Magpul UBR collapsible stock manage to comfortably distribute the weight when shouldering the rifle. I really enjoyed having the ability to quickly adjust sights from large to small aperture using the Samson FFS quick flip sight. Picture this, you are being attacked by a hungry mindless hoard of undead foes the one thing you don’t need is a lot of upward recoil when every shot counts. Equally important the A2 flash suppressor will limit your enemies ability to spot your position. The two stage trigger gives you a clean even break with each shot without extra resistance and the Magpul enhance trigger guard allows for plenty of room for mobility for even the heavily gloved finger.

I know this review might sound a bit one sided, however I really enjoyed test firing this awesome rifle. After about 100 rounds, I can say my impression of the sleek and versatile design is a testament to American Weapon Systems ability to forge a mean zombie killing machine.

Atticus Testing the ZA-15 from American Weapon Systems
Last week I had the opportunity to go to the range with Atticus and shoot the Zombie Annihilator. I have shot other AR 15’s and was expecting pretty much the same experience. I got to tell you what a pleasant surprise I had. Being left handed I usually get pinged in the head every couple of ejected rounds; not once was I tapped in probably 60 rounds fired. The trigger is very smooth without being overly touchy. It is a heavy rifle in comparison to other AR’s, which I think help keep it on target. It comes with adjustable iron sights (close quarter and distance). I only had the opportunity to shoot on the tactical range (25yd) which went very well , although I would like to take it out on the 100yd.
My initial feel is that this is a very well made, solid rifle and I would definitely recommend it to lefties.
Out with Old Man Lefty and Lou testing out the new Zombie Annihilator.
First impressions should follow tomorrow.
