love that ball of fire!
Only get the good ones from BP or a shortie
yup. I had a .308 pistol that was built on a spanish mauser action that had a 13 inch tube, it was nicknamed "the flamethrower" the resulting ball of fire was longer than the weapon was and as wide as I am.
I really want one of those. Brake action right? Seems almost as fun as a snubby .500, and looks a lot cooler.
Before my computer Crashed in my second year of college I had designed a break open .75 caliber pistol. it was a super short round, but I'm kinda glad it got wiped out. I twasn't my most brilliant work, as even as fun as it seemd it'd still probably have broken my wrist if I ever actually made it. not to mention, this was back when my formulas for guns I had worked out didn't involve powder burn time. Back then I had just kinda figured it all burned in a short enough time that it wouldn't matter and the extremely wide short round would allow for a high efficiency due to the high volume swept out.
nah, the one I built was a cut down spanish mauser bolt action that had been rebarreled to .308 for the civil guardia, I modified the stock for a pistol grip, cut and crowned the barrel, fit a scope and bipod and shot the hell out of it, it was a single shot, I filled the floorplate with lead to add weight so recoil didnt knock it off the table... theres a thread on it here somewheres, ill go fetch it...
here it is, i knew it was still here somewheres
I just wanted to put my input in on this comment, in that the 50AE is pretty much an original round. The 50GI is the one that is based on the 45ACP round, much to the point that you only need to buy a slide, barrel and bushings, you can pretty much use your 45 mags. (Dunno how tight of a squeeze you'd put on it, though.)
If you want a big bore kick ares semi get yourself a Coonan. They are SWEET.....
We made it to their booth at Shot Show and Man are they nice people. Dan Coonan was laughing and joking with us. My buddy asked for a pic with Dan and He was goofin off and gave him this big hug in the pic. IT was so funny. Really are a great bunch of people.
Have shot many rnds through both and own a 500 S&W. I like the S&W better than the AE, but would rather shoot my .44 Mag than either.
Either would be fun. AE is just a good looking gun.
I didn't like shooting the DE because it kept spitting brass in my face no matter what I did.
Me like'em Guns! Big Guns! Must have Big Gun! This thread is just toooo muucchhhh!!!! Must have Dragmans Big Gun! Dragman must offer up to American Leader His S&W 500 to keep American Leader Happy!
I like big guns too. I have never shot a S&W 500 but would like too. I think Dragman should give it to me AL. You know something else I would like,,,, 2 big fat malted milk shakes. Mmm, good.
