Got Squirrels? Want A SMG?

I had no idea such a thing existed. In their test of chronograph speed it starts out low and gradually rises to a bit under 500 fps. My guess is that it will eventually reach the advertised 600 fps. as the barrel gets cleaned and polished with pellet use. But even at that speed, a 100 round Sub-Machine Gun ought to have a serious impact on an attack squirrel ( need I add a ;-)? Really?)

Somehow it had never occurred to me that since the silencer is allowed on air rifles then the machine gun ban also didn’t apply…

That would be serious fun against my recycle cans stash ;-)

But at $550 it will be a while before I can really think of having one:

    Well, all I can say is, Squirrels in my hood were not happy with my addition. Here is the review, but I can attest , 36 shots max at needed speed per cartridge. Let alone, if you want a scope, adding the high lift (look through) rings ($8), which I did, was required to save using the quite nice sights.

    https://airgunmaniac.com/crosman-1077-semi-automatic-co2-air-rifle-review/

    It is a nice thing to have 12 shots, if needed, when evicting critters. In particular, more than one at a time. Same issue if you shoot fast, cold limits cartridge effectiveness. Take your time, but its hard to do it with 12 shots, and several spare loaded round clips ;-)

    I suspect HR may get a taste of such on his on his next South bound.

    Nice find, Steven F!

    There was a video on that link if you scroll down a bit. It showed lots of powder/shot combinations. I was also watching the recoil in that video and it seemed not to be a problem up to about 100 grains. Even then it looked manageable.

    The nickel with Walnut grips was gorgeous.

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    Oh my! that would be perfect for those shorty shot gun shells!

  4. H.R. says:

    @Larry – Taurus came out with a 28 ga revolver a few years back (2014?), but the BATF put the kibosh on it.

    That was going to be my perfect hallway gun, but alas….

  5. Larry Ledwick says:

    The 209 primer setup is a nice touch so you don’t have to chase down Black powder caps.

    I would consider that as strictly under 10 yards for practical use.

    Would be interesting to see how it worked with paper cartridges.
    A magnum 209 primer should have no problem getting to the powder load through paper and igniting the charge reliably.

    Interesting to note that #209 primers have slightly different sizes depending on brand, but only around 3 cents a primer

    Mossberg Shockwave
    https://www.mossberg.com/category/series/590-shockwave/

    Federal legal 14″ barrel 12 Ga.
    Local regs might not permit it though.
    Even comes with a letter from BATF attesting to its Federal classification as a “Firearm”, not a shot gun.

  7. E.M.Smith says:

    I find it funny how the gun grabbers try to outlaw chemistry and physics, and the gun engineers just design around them ;-)

    Saw an interesting statistic I can’t find now. People killed by semi-auto military looking rifles vs other means. IIRC, knifes was about 50% more and hands was about double…. “Blunt Objects” was a lot higher…

    The good old hand and rock are hard to beat… Any law aganst a lawn “decoration” in the cab?,,,, how about a can of soup? Bronze of a cat? Oh Man, I need to design the “ruggedized cellphone cylinder” :-)

    Thinking about that shotgun pistol… it would be very easy to machine…

    BTW, while looking at making paper cartridges, one guy soaked his paper in saturated KNO3 solution, then dried it… so it would rapidly and completely burn on firing. Basically making a low grade flash paper. Helps solve any ignition problems too…

    Hmmmmm wonder if you could put electrical ignition in a black powder gun and still pass? Don’t see why not. Coupled with paper cartridges it would make a very fast mussel loader. Just stuff two 12 Ga. Down the front, point and shoot, repeat….

  8. E.M.Smith says:

    @Larry:

    It is only 4 inches longer barrel for a defensive style shotgun AND longer magazine so more rounds. Then put a pistol grip on it…..

    I got one in 18 inch bbl (really they measure about 18 1/4 as insurance) and decided the stock was more feature than hindrance so never put the pistol grip on. Just clamp it between arm and body. Very compact and a bit more control. Plus a nice club on the upswing… someone tries to push the bbl off target, gets walnut in the chops…

  9. E.M.Smith says:

    This is an interesting one in 20 gauge:
    https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/mossberg-500-special-purpose-cruiser-pump-action-shotgun-20-gauge-18-12-barrel-6-rounds-synthetic-pistol-grip-stock-blued-finish/FC-015813504508.html

    IIRC you can get 7 or 8 rounds of less then 3″ shells in it.

    Having shot full 12 ga. Buck and slug vs 20 ga., I’d much rather shoot a 20 without a butt stock…

  10. Larry Ledwick says:

    The Shockwave will take 5 (2 3/4) or 8 (1 3/4) 12Ga in the magazine tube plus one in the chamber for either

    If using 27 pellet 2 3/4 buck that is 162 pellets if loaded 5 +1
    If using the Aguila buck shot 1 3/4 with 11 pellets that would be 99 pellets if loaded 8 + 1

    That seems adequate. (especially if you have a few extra in your pocket and can single feed the magazine if there is an opportunity.)

  11. Larry Ledwick says:

    The 18″ barrel M500 mossberg takes 9 of the 1 3/4 shells in the tube magazine and of course one in the chamber so 9 +1 of the little shells at 11 pellets each for 110 pellets.
    Each of those shells has a mixed load of 7 #4 and 4 #1 buck so you get a little of both high pellet count per round and the extra penetration of the #1 buck if needed.

    Or it takes 5 +1 of the standard 2 3/4 buckshot

  12. E.M.Smith says:

    For me, the extra few inches doesn’t matter while the California Crazy Gun Grabber Laws du jour do. Just recently Gov. Nuisance signed something like 18 more… so I have no idea if he made me a criminal or not….

    So while the Shockwave is interesting, I’ll take the extra round and 4 inches of barrel while staying a bit further away from the Gun Law Nutters reach….

    I would think similar reasoning might apply in Denver….

  13. Steven Fraser says:

    I wonder how the Diablo would do with bacon rind and rock salt, in flash paper loads…

  14. Steven Fraser says:

    @Larry: Additional fun, a youtube presentation of the 8-barrel, 9 mm Gatling.
