    And unfortunately that magpul isn’t readily available to the average Joe just yet!

    Maglights? Ever tried a Surefire, definitely tops a maglight.

    Why oh why would any company in their right mind develope something so cool but then ruin it's market chances by making it a machine gun.... which would probably sell for $20m-$25m ?!? If they came out with an auto-loader that was legal to buy without some super federal permit/license then I believe they'd really have something there.



    P.S.
    come on 'smoothie' how about a little more thought in your post? :confused: This item has little to do with a flashlight and everything to do with self-defense.

    Sorry Griz44, I see that we’re missing the main point of it being a badass compact gun, but I think we’ve seen this once or twice before, but it is damn neat….

    Best flashlight ever would have to be Larry Niven's idea from the Ringworld/Known Space series. You can adjust it into a ray gun, a lightsaber type thing, or--of course--any brightness of flashlight :)

    From my experience with Surefire, I believe the 'blinding' ability of the high-powered flashlights is overrated. And wouldn't you rather take this:

    ... into a fight, rather than this?

    If all else fails, with the Maglite you can at least pole-vault over the nearest fence to get away. :p

    MinnMooney you ask a number of questions, let me attempt to answer some of them.


    Well they said you could add an auto sear. So that is an option, it is semi as shown.


    Well then it would not be that same thing, it would have a 16+ inch barrel. Probably not the same coolness factor. You can probably get one of these with a tax stamp. Like you would any SBR. Since I have not heard about gun restrictions be relaxed anytime soon, it will probably stay a permit required firearm.


    You are kidding right? They are not developing this for you and me (even though they want to you to think it's everyday equipment for going to the mailbox), it's for government, police, and specialized security firms that can purchase full auto weapons manufactured after 1986.

    Now they did say that it is based on a Glock. If you are lucky enough to have a Glock imported into the U.S. before 1986 that is registered as a machine gun, you might be able to have the conversion done. (Select Fire Glock 18 developed in 86, so slight chance, but doubtful.) If found, I would expect tens of thousands, not tens of millions.

    Kinda hard to believe that there are some companies that make weapons for the police and military, not for civilians, and make a good living at it.:rolleyes:

    Surefire makes lights that you can beat people with like the M6 and M4 and they will hold up better than the maglight. Or you could get the E2D which can rip off skin, show me a maglight that can do that. Not to mention the fact that Surefires are a hell of a lot brighter.

    As for the OP, I think most of have seen that more than once on here. Also, as for the actual light, its an Insight M3. They probably would have used a surefire on there but Surefire pissed off magpul right before shot08.

    Only if you've never handled a light from Surefire or Inova.

    Since this is actually a thread about a machine pistol, I'm going to move it there. We've actually had about a dozen threads dealing with this video in the past.

    Well, it's kind of embarrassing to own up to, but, this is a first for me. Pretty doggone cool.
    I wonder if they will make one for the Glock Model 20?

    Does anyone know if this made it to production or not?

    Magpul said that they made it just to show people what they were capable of. So no, it never made it to production. Thats not saying that it might, but at the rate magpul is getting products out it will probably be up for sale between now and your death.
