    Chropi assault rifle



    The Chropi Rifle was a rifle type built by Chropei (which used the "Chropi" spelling on its weapons) a Greek chemical company. It was designed by a team under Mr. Sotiris Sofianopoulos (apparently based on an original Greek-Cypriot design) and was proposed to the Greek Army in 1975. It was a simple and rather outdated design, clearly inferior to the Heckler & Koch G3, which was adopted (produced by the state-run EBO company). The rifle was rejected after a series of tests indicated that the weapon itself did not adhere to all of the desired standards. The company, nonetheless, had created all necessary infrastructure for its production and a small number (probably a few dozen) produced was delivered to the Greek state and ended up in Greek Army storage facilities.

    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Ugly as a mud fence... I especially like the part without the trigger guard, where simply turning around and catching the trigger on your pants could kill half the people in the room... great design guys...

    Last gun I saw without a trigger guard was a flintlock...

    The Jo-Lo-Ar did not have a trigger guard.

    There are lots of revolvers with fold up triggers that do not have a trigger guard.

    Of course, no spur-trigger revolvers have trigger guards, per se (the stud is arguably a guard, though). The Italian Bodeo revolver is one of those with the trigger that folded forward.

    Is it just me, or does that thing not have any sights?

    The only thing I could think of was that small piece on top of the gas block is the front sight, and the rear sight is milled into the receiver like a SAA revolver.

    With high-capacity magazines, you just point in the general direction and keep pulling the trigger...
