Wow, this would be a handful. I guess, why not, about every other caliber/model has been put into a hand cannon platform or chopped down in some fashion /form. :guns: WMG would be impressed with this:yikes:

It actually doesn't look real punishing to shoot, accuracy is another matter.

    Chief -

    You first!
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    The video doesn't "Look" too bad on recoil, maybe like shootin 3" Magnum 00 buck from a shotgun with a pistol grip and no stock. Now if they put a bi-pod on it and formed a better grip to hold on to, a poor man's XP-100?

    Of course, they have AK and AR pistols, but at least they are semi-auto and dampen the felt recoil and fire a less punishing/powerful cartridge (5.56-.224/7.62x39). The Mosin Nagant fires a
    7.62X54R, very close to a 30-06. :yikes:

    Sources I've seen list the WWII Soviet military issue 'light ball' 7.62x54R (a) as being more powerful than the US issue M-2 ball(b).

    (a), 150grFMJ-BT @2886fps = 2727ft.lbs.

    (b), 150grFMJ @2740fps = 2500ft.lbs.

    It's illegal to make a pistol out of a rifle or own same unless you have a Class III permit. So don't try this at home.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
