How much do you want to see this technical firing?

What an elegant design!
Unfortunately very difficult to build the receiver and unnecessarily complex to convert to single fire, per atf rules.
Beautiful work, even though this is the copy of the german gun that was the "cheap" solution to the more complex MG34.
Too much to talk about, but what a design!
The quick change barrel is actually part of the bolt.
Recoil is adjustable in two ways, which also changes the auto fire rate somewhat.
It is a design that wants to fire at 1700 rounds per minute, but was slowed down to 1200 or less.
Barrel weight was also used to change rate of fire.

No gun news here, but I did go to court with a bullet in my pocket.
Does that count?

I actually had no problem going through metal detectors over and over again with the bullet, or going to court.
After the first time, I was being rejected for my dangerous weapon, a AAA flashlight just over the maximum four inch length.
I went to another building to complain about the silly flashlight issue, and they used a wand, and found the bullet.
Stuck in a flap in a pocket.
That building had no problem with the flashlight.
They kept my bullet.
These government buildings give all sorts of explanations, but they just sit around and make up this shit.
They blame the rules on everything under the sun.
The .50 BMG handgun

You'd really want to steer clear of that slide coming back.
