Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Drug-Cartel Arsenal Seized in Northeastern Mexico

Friday, June 4, 2010 |


Mexican marines seized a substantial arsenal from a home in the northeastern border city of Matamoros, the defense department said.

The marines, who have been deployed in the region to battle powerful drug cartels, came upon the arms cache while pursuing a suspect, the department said in a statement

Inside the home were 92 AK-47 and AR-15 assault rifles, 12 handguns and roughly 200 grenades of various types, along with 580 ammunition clips, 81 military uniforms and other items.

The Gulf drug cartel and Los Zetas, a band of Mexican special forces deserters turned outlaws, are both active in and around Matamoros, located just across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

Assault rifles are by definition full auto. AR-15's are semi-auto. Please don't use erroneous terminology regarding firearms.

Dude does it really Matter? I'm sure whatever you call it it would leave a pretty good scratch on you. You should thank the people at bb for bringing you these reports I stead of complaining. Why don't you make your own website so you can get everything perfect?

The Drop in Auto Sear Conversion for the AR-15

The Drop In Auto Sear (DIAS) is a device that is adds an auto sear to an otherwise semi-automatic AR-15 so that when used with M-16 fire control parts including an M-16 carrier produces full auto fire. The DIAS is referred to as a "Drop In" as this piece can be added to an AR-15 without drilling a receiver for a traditional auto sear. Following is a photo of a registered Drop In Auto Sear (rDIAS) made by JCB and registered before 1986.
