Silencing a Silencer

For no other reason than to get YouTube views, the guys at West Coast Armory continuously fired 700 rounds from a full-auto M249 saw machine gun to see how quickly they could melt the silencer they installed. The answer? Not long. Not long at all.

NERF Modulus Tri-Strike

The Littlest Shotgun

The Littlest Shotgun

(PG-13: Language) Ever wonder what the weensy shotgun from Killing Them Softly would do in real life? Kjaskaar created a ridiculously short-barreled shotgun to see exactly what damage it would do. Even if it is deadly, it’s not a particularly practical weapon.

Thompson.

Trench Broom. Chicago Typewriter. Tommy Gun. The Thompson submachine gun was intended to be used in World War I, but peace time turned it into a gangster’s weapon. That is, until the second War. Ahoy sums up the fascinating tale of a weapon that’s part sinner, part saint.

Killer “Toy” Gun

Killer “Toy” Gun

Joerg Sprave shows off a deadly air powered gun that’s capable of launching a 1/4 lb arrow at up to 250 mph, easily piercing through armor. Shockingly, its arrow-over-the-barrel design would allow it to be classified as a “toy” in Germany. Perhaps they need to rethink that.

DIY Matchstick Gun

The always resourceful MrGear shows us how to transform a pencil, a matchstick, a 9-volt battery, and a few other bits and bobs into a tiny weapon, capable of firing a nasty little dart. It’s probably not deadly, but it sure could cause injury, so be careful if you try this at home.
