WANT!

By way of JPG, we learn of this interesting little gadget from this years SHOT Show:



Now, that's just flat neater than kitten toes.

I'm sure I saw something like this on world.guns.ru...

Ah-ha! The Ares FMG: http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg70-e.htm

That is neat... kinda seems like a security risk thing though. Robbers walk into a bank looking all casual and suddenly they have SMGs(or at least pistols with buttstock that look like SMGs).

I wouldn't be surprised if it was outlawed... but hey, it also looks neat for the intended purpose, low profile defensive firepower.

*whimper* Can I have one?

"Oh baby, whip me, beat me, take me full auto."

..... I think I just had a gungasm.

Nifty concept, but I gotta wonder how that folding structure would stand up to actual use.

wolfwalker said...

PS: "neater than kitten toes?" How neat are kitten toes, anyway?

Big want for the bailout bag

Add me to the list of droolers. I know the BATF is not just gonna say no, but hell f**k no to allowing us peons to have one of those!

That looks like it would fit under the car seat very nicely...

I want the masada/ACR too.

Swizzy.

A range of colours to match one's apparel would be good, too.

Mattexian-

Usually when people tell me I can't have something it just makes me work that much harder to get it....

Doesn't always work that way in the case of the law, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Truly that is an astonishing piece of machinery. I could use one of those things.

Other than full auto, which is optional, the only real obstacle I see to something like that is the rules regarding overall length. You'd have to pay the SBR fee, but that's really not a dealbreaker. Basically it's a Kel-Tec SUB2000 on a diet.

Cool.

Had one when I was a kid. pretty cool

oh, wait. not quite the same....

Matt G said...

If it can't be fired without fully opening (like the Kel-Tec), then it probably wouldn't be a problem, so long as you registered it as a Short Barreled Rifle. I note that the pistol grip folds when not in use.

I would be shocked if the stock didn't hold up sufficiently. It's only a 9mm, after all, and the metal stock is certainly more support than one gets with the polymer frame that a G17 has. Should be a stable carbine, easy to make good hits with.

Now, to REALLY get my attention, make it with a Glock 20 (10mm).

TBeck said...

Take that, Megatron!

The system really only makes sense with an autosear. Otherwise it's just a really bulky pistol.

That said, I'd pay $200 for a stamp for one. Too bad the FOPA '86 means that I can't buy one.

I dunno...neater than kitten toes??? That's pretty hard stuff to beat, but this might, maybe do it.

Max Drive said...

YES! Gimmee, Gimmee! Inner child must have!

In my second childhood I get to have the good toys.

So, who besides me is terrified of that guy's notion of "muzzle integrity"?

cmblake6 said...

Indeed! I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Simeron said...

Okay, now that is downright neat!

Concealed carry takes on a whole new meaning. And I beat one of your "critters" would be just a tad suprised to find out that the "victim" with the flashlight is actually armed with a rather nice weapon. heh
