    Fully auto 1911

    I found these pictures interesting and figured that you guys would enjoy seeing them. The first is chambered in 38 Super and the second is a 45.
    They are both being sold at auction. It's a shame that I don't have $50,000-$90,000 (their individual estimated sale price) or the ability to own class III items.

    I saw one of these at the Cody Firearms Museum, it was definitely an interesting piece.

    Those are some cool guns! I like the stocks.

    Cool vid of full auto Glock 18 at Knob Creek. 298 rounds in various stick and drum mags without a hic-up! May have been posted before but always fun to watch. here.

    I don't have one of those. Wish that I did though.
    Interesting. I've never seen one other than in PICS.

    Here's a video of one

    I don't really see the purpose of them, other than novelty. They don't seem like they would be accurate or very easy to use. Definately not worth 50 - 90,000 bucks.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I would imagine they were developed with trench warfare in mind, where they could be quite useful.

    Neat guns, wish I had one.

    Novelties at best IMO. I've fired a full auto Beretta and glock 18. Nice little buzz cutters and definately the cool factor to fire but totally unrealistic for use on the streets.

    If you think about it, those shoulder fired 1911's wouldn't be near as effective as a small subgun.

    Yeah, I think smg would be better, if your going to do it, do it right. However, they are a neat novelty.

    Brownie, I emailed Rich this morning to answer your questions.

    I would have no need for one. If there are ever tanks with blue flags at the end of the street...I still wouldn't need one...I'd need a tank!

    I want to add a bit of history and explain why someone might want these/ their historical value. Apparently they were both made as prototypes for the US Army, who at the time was looking into the possibility of producing a select fire 1911 carbine. Needless to say, they were never mass-produced and there are very few prototypes in existence.
