RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR User Experience With The Gyrojet Pistol The 18th Division (South Vietnam) Load Carriage: WWI to the GWOT (Part 2) 6 COMMENTS The chopped M79 is disturbing. I’ve never fired a 40 mm grenade but I can’t imagine that would be pleasant. Reply the SOG fellas said its actually not too bad, but then again, who would notive recoil when you are in Cambodia surrounded by 2 battalions of NVA forces tryig to kill you Reply A sawed-off bloop gun is like a sawed-off double-barrel. Shortening the barrels reduces the muzzle velocity, which reduces the recoil. And since they’re not fired from the shoulder, the arms take up most of the kick. And the kick doesn’t slow down the follow-up shot because there isn’t any follow-up shot. Also shown, a short-barreled Browning Auto-5 and a (toadie-made) MAT-49 9mm smg. Reply sorry to piss all over your expertise, but that is a swedish K SMG , not a MAT-49 Reply I do dig that sawed off M79. Pretty cool. As for the A5, I thought Hognose posted an article years ago about the Rhodesian Army Browning A5s. Thought those were way cooler than a SB A5. I looked but couldn’t find it in the archives but no luck in the search. Reply I Dont recall him talkin about it. Maybe I will do something on them next week Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
