Anyone see this show up in their email inbox?

I wouldn't have a need for this, but it is pretty clever in concept.

"Specifically, ADF looked to the Ruger 96. While most Model 96 rifles were rimfire guns, Ruger also made a number of Model 96-44 rifles chambered for .44 Remington Magnum.

ADF’s bullpup is based on the Model 96-44 and indeed loads and fires from a belt of big old .44 Magnum cartridges. And of course, .44 Mag is no slouch, on par with many intermediate cartridges out of a rifle-length barrel."

Interesting design and belt fed would eliminate the problem of rim stacking in box magazines.

Looks like fun to shoot, but I will stick with my Colt, Ruger, and S&W revolvers and Winchester '94 lever-action rifle in .44 magnum.

The whole reason this is even around is in the UK all semi autos are banned other then 22lr ( even semi auto non 22lr is a question if legal last I looked as the law only say 22lr rimfire ) even the faster action bolt action or double pull AR are banned or might be banned ..And there is always talked of banning over x size mag as you can right now get a bolt action whatever and put a 100 round drum on it if you wanted to ( there are people in UK who have bolt action AKs with 40 + round mags )

So this was a way to have the fun of prob the fastess centerfire action they could own but with more rounds for fun

I am guessing as pump action is banned in the UK ..In the UK only rimfire pumps are legal ..I am guessing this is why they do that .....As there are a number of miltaray style rifles that take AR mags and are short action pumps guessing they did now want them nasty things ..

I do wonder if one could do this with a pump or crank action ala gatling gun etc ...

VERY COOL! The man designing it is "VERY SHARP! AND on top of that, design/building WITHOUT CAD/CAM! With respect to weight, I my opinion not a deal breaker, as .44 mag is NOTHING like shooting a .22. Better for "recoil reduction"! Belt is made easily/cheaply too! (3 D printing has really brought about a revolution in MY opinion!)

If I'm going belt fed, I think I'd opt for one of these, although it looks like it may need a little tuning.

Just the thing for when those "protesters" show up on your lawn.

I checked Bass Pro--no ammo on the shelf for it.
Are you surprised?? No one can find 9mm,and while I'm sure this is more popular than 357sig which is usually sitting on some shelves, I bet these are spoken for as soon as they arrive! :cool:

Random fun fact the ammo for the mark 19 is not the same as the 203 40mm ammo ..So if one ever gets into the DD 40mm game ( yes you can own a 40mm launcher its the ammo that's a pain) dont ever mix up the roudns as the mark 19 will cause major issues with the 203 lauchers as much higher pressuer round ..
