I thought it was super cool until I realized that you would have to turn the mag before firing the last round out of that tube. For the short version that has 2 rounds per tube you would have to rotate every other shot. And for the long version you would have to count your shots and plan ahead, or else you will be firing on an empty chamber.
The concept doesn't have mush appeal to me. Now if they could get it to auto rotate, or at least have bolt hold open after the last shot out of a given tube (then auto bolt close after rotation), I would be more enthusiastic.
Well, between this, the Magpul Flashlight gun, and the KRISS, I'm just glad there are some people out there developing some new ideas, or at least a good twist on old ideas. More of the same old same old isn't good! I like anything that has some moving parts, and makes you go "How the crap did they do that?"
It may have some issues, maybe they should take a hint from Magpul, and add a little polymer window to the sides of each tube so you could see how many rounds you have left. I'd also make the tubes different colors, or at least have different colored bases so you could load out with different rounds as they discussed, but actually know what tube your on. The thing I'd be more concerned with, is if the tubes need to be loaded outside of the gun or if you could "re-up" with loose shells.
Monolitharms is making the P-12 shotgun. It is due out this fall at the SAR show. It has a similar design as the PS90. Top loaded mag and ejection out the bottom. I think it has a 20 round mag!
Way to go Brian!! :shock: :?
Now the P12.. I've been waiting 2 years for that sucker to come out. - I'm planning on getting one if they come to market. Seems like a better concept than the street sweeper, and since it's not an autoloader it won't be a destructive device.
IMHO a pump is really just as fast as an autoloader, (but you don't have a free hand).
(Halo also has a really neat .22 cal scale mini-gun. They would make a hand crank version for us civvies. But I don't know if we will ever see it cause apparently the tooling would be way expensive)
