From what I've read there were 3 of these built and they shoot pretty well!
There is no dude, It will shoot down and left because you flinch so much, please drop the gun gently next time.
Your spelling is bent, too.
Fenrik... Link to where you got the pic?
Thats pretty weird.
also, there MAY be a corriolis effect, like a curveball in baseball.
Simply for aesthetics? A marketing gimmick? Or was there some sort of technical reason for it?
It's Madness, MADNESS!
Remember the "Black Talon" ammo fiasco?
Back in the early 90's, when the MainStreamMedia got their panties in a twist over Winchester's eeeevil "Black Talon" (hollow-points simply painted black) ammo...
... And NBC actually did a special on the subject -- complete with hysterical narration by that world-famous ballistics expert, Jane Pauley -- that actually depicted (via artists' cartoons) a Black Talon slug (with its eeeevil "talons extended) spinning through a "human" torso like a set of whirling helicopter blades, bouncing off organs and bones, chopping everything into mush--??
Remember all that?
Now, since most handgun barrels' rifling twists are usually about 1:14 to 1:18 inches, that means a bullet fired from a "normal" handgun might complete close to ONE full rotation as it penetrates a torso, front to back.
However, the NBC/Black Talon show depicted that eeeevil little critter spinning/rotating COUNTLESS times as it "chopped" its path through that poor (cartoon victim's) torso!
Accordingly, only a weapon with a twisted barrel like that shown above (with perhaps a 1:0.5 inch rifling twist!) could actually have imparted such an astronomically-fast "spin" on the bullet! Hence, this must be the actual gun that NBC's ballistic experts (*cough*) used in that historic test!
That gun is actually the only-one-of-its-kind, the SEMI-AUTOMATIC HYPER-TWIST-MULTIPLIER .44 MILLIMETER MAGNUM CALIBER ORGAN SHREDDING SCHOOLYARD ASSAULT REVOLVER!
Don't sell this gun! It's priceless! Call the N.Y. Times culture editor! Call the U.N.'s International Small Arms Control Commission! Consider donating it to the MillionCluelessMommies or the Smithsonian... in the interest of science!
Quick! Get this gun off the streets before it turns the whole planet into another Dodge City!
Remember: It's For The Children.

Grammar cops -- yer busted.
"Lend it to me ..." would be correct.
Loan is a noun.
Das ist ein Sturmgewehr 44 mit Krummlauf It was a serious firearms design, tested by Germany during WWII to literally shoot around corners. Didn't work too well.
Yeah, knew about that. Meant the other gun.
That STG44 concept is kinda neat, but I don't see any real advantage to just holding the gun around the corner and shooting, except your hands are protected behind the wall. Can't imagine the thing is too accurate, or easy to use, or easy to install on the gun, which, IMHO, would make it bad for combat.
I think that is called Peyronie's disease.
