The rate of fire with this .22 submachine gun is pretty amazing.
Check it out at 42 Seconds into the video. :blink:

And what 22 firearm might that be exactly?

When I initially posted, the video doo dad was not part of the OP's post.

Many years ago (and I mean like 30-35) I read an article in a gun rag about a full auto .22LR that was being used by prison guards. It had a laser sight and the author said its rate of fire was so high it easily cut thru metal. as I recall, it used a drum magazine mounted on top. I've never heard anything about that gun since. Would be interested if anyone else has heard of it.

That 22cal SMG looked a bit like a WWII Sten. Does it fire from an open bolt? Ten rounds fired in 1/3 of a second works out to 1,800R per minute not over 2,000RPM.

Just same it's got an impressive rate of fire. All they need to do now is incorporate a trigger group with pistol grip.:blink:

Doesn't DOM stand for Drawn Over Mandrel?

...the American Arms 180...had a cassette mag like a slide projector...didn't really take off well...but the laser did have a calming effect on unruly prisoners...

Did that SMG you're referring to look vaguely like a WWII Thompson OldVet? I remember a semi auto 22 with the drum above the receiver. I liked it because it reminded me (somewhat) of a Lewis Machine Gun.:blink:

That's the critter. American Arms 180.

Go Figure I was at the range Sunday and ran into one of the local class 3 dealers,I was talking about shooting 22 in an M16 and he said he has a FA American Arms 180,it has the 275 round drum mag and said it's a hoot to fire all 275 in about 10 seconds of constant FA fire...downside is availability and cost of current 22 prices means even at pre panic prices you would burn up a $1.00 worth of 22 a second,post panic prices around $4-$5 a second

Almost pointless whether its 1800rpm or 2000rpm. The gun can empty an entire state's supply of .22LR going to all Gander Mountains in the sate in 1/2 second.

...what's the difference in rates of fire caused by??? if he's shooting it as a SA, I don't see his finger flex...

...I'd love to have two...one stocked, one w/o shoulder stock...but too much hassle for the paperwork...

...even a semi-auto version would be awesome fun...

That's the puppy! I'll take one! I can't believe I remembered that much about it seeing as it was so long ago and I can't remember the day of the week now.

Get a grip, Noname!

They didn't say it fired "ten rounds in precisely 1/3 of a second." They said, "A ten-round magazine is emptied in around 1/3 of a second." 2000 rounds per minute is 10 rounds in 0.3 seconds. That IS "around 1/3 of a second."

Would be nice if it had a trigger, though, wouldn't it?

The slower "rates of fire" in some parts of the video are due to slow-mo photography. It's all full-auto fire.

I always kinda wanted one of those, too. More so when .22LR was $.59 a box! :yup:
