gotcha...thanks for the clarificationThey were originally produced for the Army, who decided they didn't want them and gave them to the OSS. Not many were dropped into France, most were dropped into the Philipines and Indonesia. It is the only firearm that took less time to manufacture, about 6.6 seconds, than to reload, about 10 seconds.
Awesome... but I'd want one of these... (just in case Zombies appear in my hometown) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwCtboE4tTY&mode=related&search=
Taurus has a new one out that looks pretty good for that, and being Taurus, the price is good.I was thinking of one of those multi-caliber revolvers that take 410 shotshells or the 45 colt. Wouln't be a bad hiking, trail gun. You could load it up with 410 shot for snakes and other little critters but still have a more potent load for larger things.
I don't know if the photo is "oddball"...... looks to me like one of the Soviet style PP series submachine guns of WWII/Korea vintage.
I wonder why anyone would want a new remake ..... semi auto AKs at least are good shooters, but I doubt those would be. Where are they made and what caliber does it come in? Now the original one is an East Front classic, and played a major role in urban fighting. Love to just get a chance to fire one.
I have the German Mauser. Nice rifle, but ultimately a bit obsolescent for East Front conditions. I've got a Moisin carbine too, but its an open question as to whether that little monster punishes the shooter or the shootee more...
