Like the idea. I my self have referred to automatic rifles and pistols as "auto-loading."
But let's try and stay away from sea-kittens shall we.
For a few years now, I've referred to bayonets as "close proximity aiming devices"

Hard call. Pistols are referred to as semi automatic handguns, yet the technical industry term is "Pistol"
The anti's have already jumped on the word "Replica". Efficient could come back to bight us in the butt, as well as "auto-loading (still has the word "Auto").
Shrouds and forward hand guards/pistol grips could be referred to Personal Protective Equipment - PPE - so the hands of the sportsman do not get burned.
Pistol grip stocks and thumb hole stocks should be called "Ergonomic Design".
Black colored is a hard one to get around other than industry standard.

Disagree. The wonderful strategy of non-playing (ie, apathy) has only left one player standing, and that player (the anti-gunner politician) then gets free rein to implement any sort of illegal or unconstitutional act without resistance. That hasn't worked very well. The only times great change has occurred is when great resistance has been given.These groups want to limit what you can do. The only way to win, is to not play.
Help the anti-gunners? How so?Semi automatic is what these weapons are, they are not single shots, and calling them that can help the antigunners ...
Reality is, magazines keep loose bullets from going everywhere and provide convenient storage until needed. Reality is, second or subsequent shots are very often required in self-defense situations. It's the whole point of having more than one bullet ready to go. But then, we all know this.
Disallowing any more than a single bullet on any person would be like requiring any potential victim to toss one's weapon down immediately following the first swing (or toss, or firing). Lunacy.
They're useful for keeping hands from getting burned. As is the forestock on any rifle. Shoot more than one round a minute and you end up with a pretty hot barrel in short order.If it is a single shot, why do you need a barrel shroud ...
To aid in accuracy; to reduce recoil. Not to turn the gun into a murderer's weapon, as anti-gunners would have people believe.... or a compensator?
In short: only silence and apathy help anti-gunners. Fighting with every tool we've got, and fighting intelligently against the clever "lack" of intelligence displayed by anti-gunners is about all that will work.
dose sound like an oxymoron thought dose'nt it. kinda like jumbo shrimp.

Why can't start calling self loading firearms with detachable magazines "freedoms" and magazines "liberties" and pistol grip stocks "personal choice"? All bayonet lugs and muzzle devices could be called "sea puppies"

I don't know what the issue is. All my weapons are fully manual, they don't fire unless I pull the trigger. The only automatic weapons I know of are military, and I don't think they even fire on their own.
