It ain't pretty, but I think the point is that it doesn't look like a gun.

Imagine forgetting that one in the trousers while loading them into the washer.

Yeah, the innards would get all rusty and the ammo would probably get wet and unreliable.

The noise when it gets to the dyer would suck.

 

Now I'm thinking of the scene in Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid when Steve Martin cleans his pistol in the sink

As if .22Lr is ultra-reliable to begin with?  :snicker:

Hmm. Now that you mention it, I have indeed had more duds with .22 LR than with centerfire cartridges.

And now for something completely different; crossbow created for commandos in WW2

my change to the life card would be to switch from a flip up barrel to a slide on then put two more in the grip for fast reloads

some cool stuff from an Istanbull museum of Ottoman Military...            http://www.thefirear...ottoman-empire/

Apparently they destroyed their surplus guns, usually, rather than selling them on the commercial market.   Too bad, I would be interested in a 9.5 mm Turkish Mauser (iirc)   apparently the most "efficient" black powder cartridge...

I think I posted this a couple years ago,   a .338 Lapua (Norma might be a better match) medium machine gun, weight is comparable to standard (Nato*) 7.62x51mm mgs, range is closer to a .50 caliber.    

http://www.thefirear...-gun-ausa-2017/

 

Perfect weapon for a Dark Champions character...

 

 

 

http://www.thefirear...mament-company/

 

 

also early development of a 7.62 MG that is estimated to weigh about 12-13 lbs.  Even if beefed up to 14 for greater durability, still an improvement.  If they combined this with the stainless/aluminum hybrid cases that allow carriage of 5 rds loaded instead of 4, and the new M80A1 load's lighter bullet, might be able to drop a bit of weight for the troops, while still allowing 7.62 power and range.   

 

I think in the long term the CTA program's 6.5mm might be a better choice, but staying with 7.62 has its own advantages. 

 

 

*The reason I note NATO mgs, is because some russian ones are lighter.  I have only fired a few rounds through an M60, and have no experience with ANY of its competitors.

Wrong.  I give you the M&P 15-22 Integral ... by Innovative Arms: https://www.innovati...iasw-integral/ 

The loudest sound this rifle makes is the sound of the action cycling (which is what you're hearing in this video).  For comparison, each cycle of the action makes about the same amount of noise a compound bow makes when releasing an arrow -- making it as silent as a bow and/or crossbow ... and probably a LOT quieter than that WWII commando crossbow when you consider the noise and time of re-cocking it (since the full cycle of the M&P 15-22 entails re-charging the weapon).

 

Yes, it is that quiet ... with standard or even high velocity ammunition, no less -- due to the barrel porting that's covered by the suppressor.  (At the range I've been asked if mine was a pellet gun!)

I would like to playwith a suppressed lever action .45 colt, lever or pump action .22 would be superb.  I found a mold for a lead 245 gr bullet for the .300 blackout...

Right, like this pistol (the Welrod, for commandos in WW2) was very very quiet, it made little noise.

but that's not actually silent, even though it doesn't make a huge bang.
