It looks kinda neat
i take it you haven't watched one of the 8234928 reruns of "future weapons" on discovery? in particular, the episode with the "corner shot" weapon?
Nothing new the germans were issuing them over 60 years ago.
CornerShot was a bunch of greasy guys from Florida from like, Israel or something at SHOT. Looks stupid.
I thought the Germans only had the guns with curved barrels?
It was an attachment for the mp44 I believe, I think they also had some sort of optic for it but I might be wrong on that.
The corner shot has its place.. Just not much use for civilians
it was actually a curved barrel for the mp44. Whats funny is bullets had a tendency to break up while in the curve, so there would be like 3-4 fragments coming out. And since this was mostly used to very close range, it actually increased the effectiveness.
I remember seeing stuff about it on History or TLC, I believe also it was only good for a few hundred rounds before you started running the risk of a catstrophic failure
Im thinking anyone that would actually have a use for that regularly already has video cameras attcahed to theirs or is alowed to carry grenades, thus eliminating the need for that stock
Fancy looking nigger rig
