    No, an original Australian design from WWII, with many advantages over the Sten.

    BTW there was however an Australian version of the Sten, called the Austen, which had a folding butt modeled on the Schmeisser. It wasn't nearly as popular with the soldiers as the Owen, which saw service right up to the early part of our involvement in Vietnam.

    Cutaway Steyr Model 1907 pistol and a Japanese cutaway Type 94 Nambu.

    Did I mention I like cutaways? Ugly pistols though.

    Actually, the Welrod was chambered for .32 ACP or 9x19, which was used with subsonic loads. Wikipedia entry on the Welrod. You may be thinking of the DeLisle silenced carbine, which was a No.1 Mk.III* SMLE modified to shoot .45 ACP and fed from 1911 mags.

    Another neat gun developed for the SOE in WW2 was the Sleeve Gun, which kinda looks like a Welrod minus the grip. These were in .32 ACP, IIRC.

    Here are 2 unusual ones. One is a WWII Naval Intelligence officer's glove gun. The second is a 4 barrell Nazi belt buckle gun.

    Yep... my bad... I could have sworn the Welrod was a .45. (Note to self, do better research before posting.)

    A pawn shop in Fayetteville, NC once had, at the same time, a sporterized M1 Garand, and a sporterized Johnson rifle. Weirdest looking things I ever saw in my life. Got no pictures of them...

    Only thing more odd than that is, about a week after I saw them, they were stolen in a break-in along with lots of other inventory. Never heard if they were recovered.

    Sheesh, can't you recognize a left-handed Bubba CQB shotgun when you see one? And you call yourself tactical... ;)

    One of the "Liberator" disposable single-shot .45s made for WWII resistance efforts.

    Ten rounds in the grip, turn-and-and-pull breech loading on the back. Apparently really smacked the web of your hand, too.

    Totally stamped sheet metal.

    I found Jan Rukr's website... What does "papercraft" mean? This thread is about guns not fake mockups.

    Papercraft (IIRC) is kind of like those old book you used to get with punch-out panels that you folded and glued together to make a replica.

    I had an old Klingon Cruiser from the TNG Papercraft set.

    Even though the rifle is a papercraft mockup, it is based on the "real" M41-A, even comes with a moving pump (if done right), a removable mag, and three grenades.

    I always thought it would be cool to have one of those M41-A's with the little CO2 cartridge looking grenades.... LOL

    Was this the gun the kid (lead boss at the end) used in Robocop 2 to shootout with the police? He used a blue one...

    Getting back on track here...

    CIA Deer Gun. Described by the CIA as "Pistol, 9 millimeter, [FSN] 1395-H00-9108, Parabellum, single shot, 2.0 in. barrel, reloadable, c/w 3 cartridges in grip, packed for air drop." These were apparently airdropped into southeast asia for some unknown covert operation.

    OSS Stinger in 22lr. Developed in late 1943. You can figure out what this one is for:

    Planet of the Apes subgun. This was made for the remake of PotA using a real subgun, and fired blanks in the movie:

    from Post #1

    The "M41 pulse rifle" was a stage prop for the "Aliens" movies. The website is for a cardstock model, as G360-K has pointed out. I used that picture because, well, it was the first and best picture I came across with a Google search. The original prop is based on a Thompson M1A1 with, IIRC, a SPAS-12 as the grenade launcher.

    There are aftermarket kits you can get for an airsoft M1A1, if you have the burning desire.

    It was a Remington 870 with a couple SPAS 12 parts for looks. While we're on the subjsect dont forget the smartgun, made from an MG-42, a steadycam harness, and a few dirtbike parts. Im not sure what the flamethrower was made from but I think I see a backwards M-16 upper reciever and an M-203 handguard.
