  • Metal Storm

    Disclaimer: I hope no one has posted this yet, and I am sorry for reposting it if someone did.


    Well, I am sure most of you know about the gun that shoots 1,000,000 rounds per minute, but have you seen it in action???
    It is called the Meatl Sotrm, and -->HERE<-- is the video of the gun blasting away.

    enjoy...

    Awesome. I like how the google vid link says it fires 100 billion RPM. ;) Still, to fire 5 rounds per barrel at such a short ammount of time is impressive.

      I remember reading about this kind of firearm before. The bullets are caseless and sit in the barrel stacked while an electric discharge causes each round to fire.

      This is why the cyclic rate is so variable. There are pretty much no moving parts at all in the weapon

      did a google search....http://www.metalstorm.com/

        Yeah, Metal Storm has been around for several years. They've been pushing it in a whole variety of applications for a LONG time. I'm not aware of anyone actually using it though.

          Must be a right pain to reload. Ive got visions of some poor bloke with a pack of cartridges and a long stick muzzle loading it like some napoleonic cannon.

            They have one that launches grenades too.

              If I recall correctly (and this is going back a couple years at least), the barrels are more or less disposable. Rather than buying conventional cartridges for a weapon, you buy the whole barrel with the rounds included.

                That's the one that I've seen. I bet they can make a pretty big hole. :madsmile:

                  Very strange weapon, im sure you probably couldn't get those kind of speeds or variable control with a mechanical weapon.

                    While its nowhere near the cyclic rate of the metal storm, my paintball gun has an adjustable rate of fire from 1 round/ second all the way up to 20 rps.

                    the firing mechanism is controlled by a solenoid which is powered by a 9 volt battery.
                    i wouldnt want to have my life depend on the charge in a battery so i can see why this has never made it into real weapons.
