The 10 Coolest Guns On Planet Earth (With Pics)

1) The AA12 Atchisson Assault Shotgun: The AA12 Atchisson Assault Shotgun can fire five shotgun shells per second, can launch a fragmentation grenade and has such a minimal amount of recoil that it can be fired with one hand.---7) M-134 Minigun: When you absolutely, positively have to put 4,000 rounds a minute on target, this is the weapon for you!---8) Metal Storm: This is a stacked weapon that fires off ONE MILLION rounds per minute. So, if we ever run across anything that can handle 900,000 rounds per minute, but not a million, we can thank the Aussies for getting us over the top

I’ve seen those stacked guns firing on TV. Reloading is pretty much out of the question, but manoman you can put a lot of ammo down range with one of those. They fire so fast it’s not rat-a-tat, is more of a buzzing sound.

Is the barrel bent with a camera on it?

Nice. But, why would anyone NEED one of these? Maybe to stave off pit bull attacks on helpless baby sea lions?

I LOVE that Mk-19. As an MP Company Commander I had 46 of them to do my bidding. Unfortunately, I had to leave them for the next commander when I left :-(

i’d love to try one of those.
it’d be on my top 3 list of guns to own, with an hk psg-1 and an h&h double rifle.

Remember DREAD? I think nothing must have ever come of it. The idea was basically a centripedal weapon system, a spinning turret that spit out ball bearings.

You can save a few bucks by taking your pistol and getting their adapter kit.

Around 1976 a company called Walter Criag in Selma, Alabama advertised some 98-09 Argentine Mausers for sale. These were unfired still in the cosmoline and even included the original test target.

The price was pretty good so I had a local dealer order me one. When it arrived, I was very pleased. First of all it was not only a model 1909, it was actually made in 1909 by Deutsch Waffen und Munitionsfabrik in Berlin. The included test target indicated that some guy named Herr Ritzmann had shot a slightly under 2 inch group at 200 meters with open sights. He then rightly signed his work.

The workmanship on the rifle was simply off the charts. It was the best made gun I had ever seen. The fact that they were turning these guns out by the millions was hard to believe. The bolt was in the white, all metal parts had the serial number or the last two digits of it. Some of the small parts had a fantastic cobalt blue which had a varied tone. It just plain looked good.

I probably should have just left it unfired but I shot it. One day I was shooting at an old tar bucket, a measured 400 yards away. That was just about where the sights were adjusted for. It was not hard at all to hit from a standing unrested position.

Did it function perfectly? What a silly question. Of course it did.

It was the coolest gun I have ever owned and I never should have let it go. A good friend offered me just about twice what it was worth and I foolishly sold it.

I’m glad to see that #8, Metal Storm, was designed with safety in mind. It has a sticker with an arrow that, I presume and being unable to read it from the photo, probably says something like; “Aim toward enemy”!

I first read of this concept in John Ringo’s ‘Posleen’ novels. I remember training for “One shot, One kill” but given a choice of what to have in a fire-fight ... this sucker is a fire-FRIGHT, bar none!

I’m on my third reading. I find some new detail every time.

After I read about it, I had to look it up and found a guy in a local gun club who owned one. He told me if I could pay for the ammo, I could shoot it. He has empty 20mm shells, but finding the appropriate amount of materiel to craft a bullet is difficult.

The damn thing is VERY heavy, and the one he has had the sleds replaced with heavy-wheeled cart.

If by saving a few bucks includes $200 and a 9-12 month wait for a Short Barreled Rifle tax stamp, then yeah.

Could they be turned from copper or brass bar stock? It would be a hoot to shoot it!

I have no idea, and he’s the quiet type when it comes to what he owns. If he’s got a Solo, he’s likely got some other interesting toys.

I’d have to imagine a 20mm bullet would take an enormous amount of lead or other soft metal and casting it would be interesting, but I’d imagine the molds are out there.

Personally I would LOVE to get an AA-12. As I understand it though they are NOT for civilian purchase. Tax stamp or not.

One accurately fired round from good cover can put down a target that issues a high rate of fire in slightly incorrect direction.

The coolest gun ever made is the Smith & Wesson Model 19-3 four inch .357 Magnum.

There is one gun I really wish I had back tho in a different caliber. It was a Winchester model 92, well actually a Browning BL-92 in .44 magnum.

I could live with the .44 but really want one in .357 magnum. Out of a 20 inch barrel that is a hot cartridge.

The gun is just so handy and feels right and the action is so smooth. Just another one of John Browning’ great ones.
