Folding guns

While they might be a bit handy for a trunk gun, I don’t think they’re all that great for handguns.

Here’s the full conceal, which I think I’ve mentioned before. It’s a Glock with a folding magwell. Seems derpy to me.

Here’s a folding single shot 22LR pistol that actually folds up pretty small. That strikes me as more interesting since it really folds up into a small package. Still derpy to me. I guess if you’re a hitman . . .

    There’s the folding NAA mini revolver setup too. Five shots of 22LR. They’re not terribly derpy, once you get them hitting to POA.

    That G19 is no more compact than a 19 with the grip chopped to 26 length, and the latter doesn’t require you to ask for a time-out while you play Transformers before you can shoot.

    Solution desperately in search of a problem.

    Points awarded for interesting engineering.

    The NAA Mini works well, has all the reliability you’d expect of a single action revolver, and is small enough you can carry it on a western style belt buckle. Not sure if that’s concealed or open, I’d want to do that only in jurisdictions where both are legal.
    It does sting the hand a bit when you fire high velocity ammo, which happens to be what I have on hand…

    NAA slogan: five times the firepower at half the price.

    My trunk monkey refuses to go anywhere unless he has Beretta or Sig 9 or 40. What can I say, he has a really nasty personal disposition. No wussy tire iron for him!

    Zip guns are fun, but need not be manufactured to such exacting tolerances. A simple length of 1/4″ i.d. steel tubing, a nail and a robust piece of bike inner tube will do it for a 22LR blastermatic.

    I’m with Tam; I’m afraid the logic behind making a small, easily concealable firearm smaller and more easily concealable – but almost certainly harder to use and less reliable – with delicate mechanical gyrations escapes me.

    Now, if an AR-10 could be made into something nearly the size of a fat, long-slide G21, and just as reliable, without resorting to Transformers cartoon technology or CGI, give me a call.

    Yep a Kahr CW9 or a NAA .22 will do what they do loads better.

  10. Joe Says:

    For $200 I would buy one of those .22s as a cool toy, but that price is ridiculous.

    My designated truck gun is a .357 mag 7 shot revolver. I’ve considered a .357 lever action rifle as a back up, but lever actions are quite expensive…often more than a lot of semi-auto rifles.
