WWSD2020: An Introduction to What Would Stoner Do 2020
In the 1950s, Eugene Stoner’s ground-breaking rifle went against almost every tradition in firearms design.
He used Space-Age aluminum and composites, instead of traditional wood and steel. At the time, his ideas about gun design were considered visionary, futuristic, even radical.
Today, firearms based on Stoner’s ideas are carried by every branch of the US military, employed by Law Enforcement, and owned by millions of American citizens exercising their constitutionally-guaranteed rights.
Stoner’s ideas have stood the test of time, even two decades after his death in 1997.
But what if we still had Eugene Stoner around?
What if he had access to the most-modern materials and manufacturing methods? How would he make his rifle even lighter and more-capable and user-friendly?
What would Stoner Do?
That’s the question the WWSD 2020 Rifle by Ian and Karl from InRange TV attempts to answer.
Available in early 2020 exclusively from Brownells, the WWSD 2020 Rifle uses tough, durable modern polymers, and high-tech manufacturing techniques to push Stoner’s genius ideas into the 21st Century.
Pre-Orders are being taken now on complete rifles $1,699.99, as well as uppers, lowers and seperate components.
This photo is a prototype. Actual production rifles will feature new production equivalent components.
First Test Out Of The KP-15 Mold.
In this update of the WWSD2020 project, we show the process of the molding the KP-15 Lower. We are getting very close to having the final mold and enter into production.
Progress On The KP-15 Polymer Lower.
In this update of the WWSD2020 project, we discuss the progress of the KP-15 Polymer lower from CAD files to mold work.
Revisiting the barrel selection.
In this first R&D update of the WWSD2020 project, we revisit barrel selection and test new offerings from Ballistic Advantage as well as Faxon in an attempt to validate our conclusions about pencil barrels and modern heat stress relieving as well as choose the official barrel for WWSD2020.
