I found 2 guns which seem to be about as rare as it gets..
First were the original prototypes for the P90. They had no stock, The idea was to point and shoot. They still kept the sideways magazine though.
Incidentally if you Google MP7 prototypes, It shows the original was a much smaller, holster-intended gun.
Lastly was the Soviet AO27, basically an AK shooting darts. Apparently it didn't fire the famous 10x54mm flechette, instead firing a new 3mm dart.
It was cancelled due to poor dispersion
anyone else got a gun that nobody has heard of?
Going slightly off subject, I have found the most ridiculous gold-mine of information on obscure 60s weapons, all by the same guy.
Detailed analysis of dart-firing AK
SMG which shoots bullets shaped like an 'H'
I googled 'Topwar arrow bullets' and it lists many articles with almost insider-like knowledge of U.S. projects. You will need Google translate turned on
he's also the only info source on the rare steyr IWS sniper
Just google 'Topwar' followed by whatever subject your after
Topwar is a junkyard of military related info, and anything posted there must be taken with a grain of salt at the very least
But if you want guns that are interesting and unique...
British parker hale PDW. Invented by a non brit working for Bush man, then purchased by parker hale, who had previously only worked on bolt actions.
Had a rate reducer in the grip. Could take screw- on barrels
I'm glad you said! With english as my first language I can sometimes find Russian to be a bit crptic but this guy rambles for paragraph after paragraph of garbage.
Many Topwar texts are crap even when posted in their native Russian language, and further use of Google translate does not help them any.
So, topwar is the Russian equivalent of Business Insider?;)
