    If you can find pictures of a real M41A go ahead and post it. This forum is "general gun discussions" not "general origami discussions".

    I think I'd rather have the paper airplane :neener:

    >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...<

    near as I can tell, yes. Although it seemed to have a bit more kick than the average 9...


    Kurush: does it count if it was banned in California? IIRC, both the m41A1 AND the Phased Plasma Rifle were on the original Cali ban list...

    Getting back on track once again!

    The Dardick 1100, some of you may remember this from the ugly gun thread:
    [​IMG]

    The Dardick was a magazine-fed revolver. Yep. Here's an illustration of how it worked:
    [​IMG]

    Because its oddball design couldn't feed regular ammo, "trounds" (triangular rounds) were developed for it. Front view:

    (All pictures shamelessly pilfered from Castle Argghh!)

    How interesting, that looks like a Wankel engine.

    Too cool. I've always had a thing for edged weaponry. :cool:

    Thanks for digging that one up.

    I have learned that there were "Deer Teams." These OSS agents would train communist Vietnamese forces in covert action against the Japanese and in the rescue of downed American pilots in the event that Japan had to be removed by invasion of Indochina. Maybe these were used in some form there?

    Deer gun? How about an ear gun!

    [​IMG]

    I'm guessing they weren't both prescribed for the same problem, however.

    imagine having both, and confusing the two. You now know that the BG is at 98*, and then proceed to blow yourself away because you think you're running a fever...

    Interesting. There may be some connection, but the Deer gun was almost certainly postwar.

    By the way I should have given photo credit: http://home.pacbell.net/rlhag65/dgun.html
    He also sells a book about the Deer gun, Liberator, and OSS Stinger.

    I've always thought that this could be a good idea if it was re-engineered -- with a suitably powerful electric motor, you could quite literally have a handheld minigun.

    Then I realized it'd be overkill for anything short of kung-fu cyborgs from spaaaaaace.

    BladeRunner anyone?

    Holden: ...describe in single words, only the good things that come in to your mind about... your mother.
    Leon: My mother?
    Holden: Yeah.
    Leon: Let me tell you about my mother...

    COP 357, four barrel .357 Derringer, after I saw the movie back in the '80s, I just had to have one.

    Sidenote:

    One of the super-cool things to notice in that scene is when Holden gets sucker-shot by Leon, he actually has already drawn his gun right before the second one hits him - Holden really was good!

    :D

    (Holden's gun is the same as Deckard's, btw.)

    The Panzerbüchse 38 and 39 are not especially weird in and of themselves. They are single shot antitank rifles designed by the German army to give soldiers the capability of defeating tank armor.

    Panzerbüchse 38:
    [​IMG]

    Panzerbüchse 39:
    [​IMG]

    What's weird about them is that they shoot what is quite possibly the most amazingly overbore small arms cartridge ever developed.

    Behold the 7.92x94mm "Patrone 318"
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Patrone 318 developed a velocity of nearly 4000 fps with a 220 gr tungsten core bullet and could pierce 30mm of armor. What's even more weird about this cartridge is that the base of the bullet contained a pellet of tear gas that was supposed to force the inhabitants of the tank to evacuate. Alas, the tear gas pellet gimmick didn't work out very well and in any case antitank rifles were deemed obsolete early in WW2.

    This reminded me of the Liberator shotgun.

    I always thought that this concept was a good one if you had to DIY. Simple enough to make without sophisticated machinery.

    Heh.. yeah it would be; the actual gun only fires one barrel at at time, though they rigged two barrels to go at once for the movie, I believe.

    Ok thank god.. Here I am thinking it actually fires all 4 at once :what:. Two rounds at once would be enough, I could understand someone being able to control that, but 4 at once would be nuts :eek:

    Persephone had a COP 357 on the Matrix Reloaded.

    On the subject of the M41-A, I have an Aliens special of SciFi and Fantasy FX, which has an interview with the armorers behind the movie. The Flamethrower was made by Pinewood Studio's own Special Effects technician with bits from a replica M16, according to them. There's a bit about what they used for each gun.

    BTW, they also did the Judge Dredd guns and the Zorg ZF-1 from Fifth Element that someone mentioned.

    Please tell me you're joking...

    (PS: Sorry for the off-topicness.)

    Fictional Gun: the "9Weapon" from Masume Shirow's "Ghost in the Shell".

    [​IMG]

    Mr. Shirow once stated in an interview that he created the concept because he wanted to see what the bastard child of a FAMAS and a P90 would look like. :D
