    Looks like a defect, judging on what he wrote in the video description and comments. He better not get caught playing around with that. It's hilarious how he misses his target even at 4-5 feet away. Like the bottles on that dresser, the grapefruit, and the red ball.

    Any pistol designed to fire in the semi-automatic role that fires in the automatic role is defective.

    That's cool to see something like that, but they aren't doing themselves a favor by putting that on the internet. If the new Youtube format wouldn't crash my browser if I tried, I'd send them a message explaining the potential gravity of the situation. Someone should do that.

    And will get you 10+ years in the slammer.

    Over half the comments say just that.

    I guess they got the point, the video is already removed!

    I wonder if anyone downloaded and saved the video. It could be re-posted anywhere and everywhere now. This shows how ill-informed of the law many shooters are. I also wonder if they'll actually do anything appropriate with that gun.:scrutiny:

    Cool video while it lasted.

    I had been wondering how the 7.62x25 would handle on full auto from a handgun. Seems to do quite well, and quite controllable. By the end of the short video they had become fairly decent at keeping all rounds in a smaller circle at very close range emptying the entire mag, while at the start they were horrible.
    A few more times at the range and I bet they could have learned to keep all rounds in the center of a torso at 10-20 yards with full mag dumps, and probably much better firing in bursts.

    He hit every target in the video with at least some rounds including the red ball and grapfruit, except for the bottles on the top of the dresser. But to be honest from the angle he shot the dresser I am not sure he was aiming at the bottles and not the dresser itself. His aim appeared to be at the center of the dresser, not the bottles or anywhere near the top.

    Now if someone would just have an similar defect with an FN 5.7x28. I have a feeling that .22 would be very controllable in full auto for a handgun and would find such a video educational.

    As for legal ramifications. An initial accidental mag dump from a defect is one thing. Proceeding to shoot hundreds of rounds (and recording it all and posting it on the net) is clearly not an accident, and can quickly become someone using a non-registered "machinegun" well after they are aware of the problem.

    They seem to be easy to convert if you have even a little mechanical knowledge. i doubt the pistol malfunctioned it was more likly converted on purpose.

    lol I think they wised up and deleted it.

    either that or the ATF are hot on their tails.

    You TRULY didn't miss much.
    Some goofball doing his over-the-top Rambo impression with a dangerously malfunctioning firearm and committing a federal felony. The death metal soundtrack that started about 1/2 way through the video was a nice touch. Made him look a bit more, you know, serious-y.

    But, if you ever wanted to know how to shoot a piece of fruit from (literally) 3 INCHES away (or a chest of drawers from two paces) with a runaway illegal firearm, well, then you probably did miss out.

    It was a runaway? Anyone can make a runaway.
  14. Sam1911

    Somewhat unclear. Was it a runaway, an out-of-battery / slamfire special (most likely with the disconnector ground and the hammer just following), or actually converted with some kind of auto sear arrangement?

    They guy's comments didn't go that far. He just claimed that it came that way and he thought it was cool.

    FIVETWOSEVEN Well-Known Member

    It could have come that way but he would need to replace the hammer pack, The russians designed the gun to switch packs right?

    Yes, the fire control group is a replaceable unit but none were select-fire or full auto on purpose. It may have arrived in his hands in that condition but it wasn't purposefully built that way.

    Am I wrong in thinking that the Scorpion was a full auto that used the Tokerov cartridge?

    Edit: no, that shoots .32ACP A much uglier gun was meant for the Tokerov round, the PPS

    I think the PPS looks cool, although I'm probably in the minority with that opinion. It would seem to be that the 7.62x25mm Tokarev would benefit a lot from a carbine-length barrel, much moreso than other calibers used in sub guns at the time (9mm and .45acp). It seems to have the higher case capacity necessary for a greater leap in performance than other pistol calibers.

    Chances are they modified it to make it this way. However, it could also be missing its firing pin spring and slamfiring.

    Not that uncommon to have slamfires... I've actually heard a story that a guy brought a makarov into a gun shop because it was jamming, smithy polished the feed ramp and came back to the counter. He cycled 3 live rounds through it to check if it was any smoother... needless to say there where 3 holes in the floor full auto! Smith asked if he ever cleans his guns... "Ohhh i never clean my autos..." :what: Turns out it had a solid chunk of cosmoline behind the firing pin! :banghead:
