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?;)
Also the G11 had originally been designed by mauser, with a 10 rpund rotary magazine.
Another protoype by IWK had 3 barrels, and could fire a volley of all 3 shots
If you refer to the Bundeswehr G11, it was not "originally designed" by Mauser.
The real Mauser design (at least the metal parts, the plastic housing has dissolved itself) can be viewed in the Bundeswehr technology collection (WTS) in Koblenz. By the way, there was another design, by well known Anton Politzer of Diehl, which had three barrels and a rotary element containing one chamber for each barrel.
At the time, Mauser still was a subsidiary of IWK (former DWM). There were no competing designs Mauser versus IWK. The development center (Entwicklungsanstalt, origin of the 27 mm BMK gun and cartridge) was located at Oberndorf and nearby Schramberg-Sulgen.
