TIN FOIL HAT ALERT
These are "parade rifles". The bolts, ammunition, and often times the entire trigger mechanism is removed to make the rifle lighter. Also they are also cleaner as no oil and powder residue means no stains on those pretty dress uniforms. It appears you have NEVER been in the military and had to march in parade. Every ounce counts and in this case it is actually a few pounds. I have seen this posted all over the interwebs and it is frankly a little concerning. Those of us that are really in support of our 2A rights are looking like idiots. I think we all need to take a deep breath and put a stop to these MYTHS and RUMORS. It surely is not helping our cause. I do not support Obama and these libs any more than the next guy here, but we at least have to deal in facts. If not we are just as bad as they are.
