Videos Of Russian’s “Flying Assault Rifle” Drone Proved That It Is Real

Well, what do you know? Apparently, the harbinger of death from up above, the quirky flying assault rifle drone proposed by Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey, has at least one functioning example. In a pair of videos posted a year ago, on March 28, 2018, it shows the Almaz-Antey’s “experimental prototype combat drones violator” in action.

Death From The Sky: Russian Arms Maker Proposed A Flying Assault Rifle

What you are looking at is a patent filed with the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property (an equivalent of USPTO) by Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey in 2018 that feels somewhat like a weapon straight out Iron Sky (2012, Entertainment One). It is a drone that was apparently designed around a conventional assault rifle which is kind of wacky if you ask me. We all know how long a clip lasts and so… like, why would a presumably combat drone limit itself with 30-something rounds? Perhaps, it could accept drum magazine? It possibly could.

U.S. Army Actually Had A 3D-Printed Grenade Launcher Called RAMBO

This is RAMBO, but it has nothing to do with the protagonist from the 80s movie franchise adaption of David Morrell’s 1972 novel, First Blood. This RAMBO here is not a person; it is a weapon – a grenade launcher to be exact. What makes RAMBO so special is, it is grenade launcher made almost exclusively from addicted manufacturing, AKA 3D printing, and it actually fires, wait for it… 3D-printed munition. And the name there? It actually stands for Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistics Ordnance. Pretty sure it is not a nod to the fictional hero. Continue reading U.S. Army Actually Had A 3D-Printed Grenade Launcher Called RAMBO

If Cobra Commander Was Real, He Would Have Use This Custom H&K XM8

Converting and/or modding real firearms into cartoon-inspired look is not the bestest of ideas. I don’t need to explain why is it so, but man, this fully-functional Heckler & Koch XM8 assault rifle converted from a H&K SL8 with a color scheme, complete with weathered effect, inspired by 80s action cartoon G.I. Joe’s super baddy Cobra Commander is too awesome not to give it its due complimentary words. I mean, seriously, just look at the thing. It is an absolute beauty!

Pakistan Gifts Saudi Crown Prince Gold-plated H&K Submachine Gun

What looks like a gun skin for popular Battle Royale multiplayer online game, PlayerUnknown Battleground AKA PUBG, is actually a real-life embossed golden Heckler & Koch MP5. Yes! This thing is real! This one-off, custom submachine based on German firearms maker Heckler & Koch MP5 features a gold-plated body, barrel, safety switch, trigger and magazine with the golden body and magazine further boast some rather intricate designs. Man, it really does look like a gun skin for PUBG, except that the game does not have a H&K MP5. The closest to the MP5 in the game is the UMP9 (which is obviously, a fictional weapon like the rest of the in-game weapons). Continue reading Pakistan Gifts Saudi Crown Prince Gold-plated H&K Submachine Gun

Bet You Didn’t Know There Were Rocket Guns In The 1960s

Here’s a piece of firearm history that you may not know. What you see here is essentially a weapon that fires rocket-powered projectiles. You heard that right. Rocket. Called GYROJET, this futuristic firearm was produced by a San Ramon, California company called MB Associates and exists in a variety of configurations, including rifle, pistol, carbine, as well as sub-machine gun. What made GYROJET “revolutionary” was it uses bullet-sized rocket rounds. Continue reading Bet You Didn’t Know There Were Rocket Guns In The 1960s

How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

First we have the weirdest confectionary, now there’s what we thought could be the craziest saw-off shotgun ever. Inspired by the movie Killing Them Softly (Plan B Entertainment, 2012), YouTuber Kjaskaar wants to find out if the sawed-off shotgun featured in the movie works in real-life. For the uninitiated, the shotgun featured in the ‘Poker Heist’ scene was nothing short of ridiculous. Unlike some sawed-off shotguns that have some inches lopped off, the Killing Them Softly shotgun has all of its barrel sawed off, pretty much leaving only the chambers. Continue reading How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

Taser’s Axon Signal Rolls The Cameras When Firearm Is Drawn

As far as United States is concerned, there have been one too many fatal police shooting incidents. According to a data collated by The Washington Post, there had been 963 fatal force by police in the U.S. in 2016 and the number was based on news, reports, public records et cetera, and it did not include unreported incidents. This is where body cams and dashcams can help, but the question is: with body cam, can you trust the officers to turn it on, or remember to turn it on, and if the camera can continuously record that much of data?

With This Type Of New Range Ammo, Your Gun Will Be A Lot Cleaner

The only time you see red small caliber projectile is probably on a tracer round (and even that aren’t entirely red/orange red), but the gloss red you see here is on every single projectile and no, these are no tracers, neither is the red for some vain, asesthetic purpose. The gloss red bullet is a new tech projectile called Synthetic Jacket Technology, or Syntech in short, developed by Federal Premium Ammunition/American Eagle. Four years in the making and over a million rounds expended, this glossy red projectile may look like like a lipstick lopped off its case, but it is no less deadly than any gunpowder-powered projectiles. So why does it look so much like plastic? Continue reading With This Type Of New Range Ammo, Your Gun Will Be A Lot Cleaner
