Easy-to-operate rifle is pretty much a semi-auto with bolt hold-open after each shot.
Legal Issues, Shooting by Russ Chastain
A new gun may allow Brits to own an “almost” AR rifle, and it’s based on such a simple idea that other gun makers who have tried to work around the U.K.’s ban on semi-automatic rifles have got to be asking themselves, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
In a nutshell, the Southern Gun Company’s “223 Lever Release Rifle,” described in the video below as “the LR223,” is a slightly modified semi-automatic based on a remarkably simple concept. The rifle has a latch that catches the bolt and holds it rearward when opened. A lever on the left side of the receiver, easily manipulated by a right-handed shooter’s thumb, releases the bolt, which slams forward. If a loaded magazine is present, a round will be chambered by the closing of the bolt.
