I don't think they're really worth using in anything that isn't relatively long and thin.

...oh man somebody make a P90 in .357 Magnum or some poo poo. It would be huge and idiotic, but it would be hilarious. Edit: gently caress, forgot about the rim. Pick some other suitably wacky caliber, then.

Isn't this what 357 SIG is for?

So, I'm rewatching Skyfall last night, and I get to.the part where it's revealed that Bond was shot with depleted uranium pistol rounds.

Anything interesting ever happen with those Seismic Ammo guys, the ones that were loading 9mm with like, 185gr projectiles?

Stumbled onto this on youtube, another "I'm not touching you full auto like characteristics" interesting take on a fully semi-automatic firearm, seriously. A forced reset trigger.

https://rarebreedtriggers.com/

https://vimeo.com/486478480

  • Pull the trigger *bang*
  • BCG goes back cocking hammer
  • When the hammer is cocked it forces the trigger to go forward (making it 1 trigger pull 1 bullet)
  • The locking bar prevents you from pulling the trigger until the bolt is locked
  • and then you pull the trigger again to get another bullet *bang* per trigger pull

If bump-fire stocks are machineguns, that thing is absolutely, no doubt in my mind, going to be declared a machinegun.

So that inside shoulder of the bolt carrier is what keeps it locked/timed. I wonder how tightly this feature is controlled on various bolt carriers.

Not my cup of tea but neat idea.

Is it just me or does the "proprietary design straight from George's head" when they did the quick field strip look a lot like he just flipped a P90 upside down moved the charging handle and called it good. Which is probably a good thing.

$995 is a bit steep but man I want one even more now

Still cheaper than a PS90.

I like it but I would only get one as a carbine. Pistol is just a little too silly.

True. Should have bought one ages ago when they were cheaper. I still think the full auto P90 is one of the most fun guns I've ever fired.

I bet is will sell closer to $799.

It might have to go on my Firearms to Buy list. If it isn't a complete clusterfuck. So, like 50/50 chance.

If they expect folks will likely throw a brace on them I'm surprised they didn't throw more of a bone in that direction with space for like a SIG MCX-style vertical picatinny rail where the rear QD cup is.

I like how the Kel-Tec guy, when answering question "Why?", was basically saying that George came out with a gun idea and they just ran with it. Confirmed madman just poops out guns and everyone else at the company is just trying to figure out what to do with it.

Having most pistol and CCW magazines, I can vouch that 99% of new stuff is basically, "Hey, we made a Glock that...has different stippling!"

Kel Tec seems to be the only company that constantly does designed from the ground up interesting poo poo.

It's a shame they're Kel Tec.
