Something in the Works -- Coolness factor 10

NAA Break-top Coming Soon

Sources at North American Arms says the break-top model will be coming soon. Below are some photos of the prototype. But we will see how it goes when I get my hands on one. I have always liked top break suicide specials. Hopefully I can get my hands on one when they show up at a gun show. Loading and unloading during practice will definably be easier. I have always wanted one but never could really bring up a good reason to get one. This just might put my reasoning to rest.

NAA Top Break .22 Magnum

That is an awesome little break-top 22 Mag!
Check this one out!
I think a self-hating liberal designed it!

Or this one... it's a newer design in a larger caliber!

Okay how about a REAL gun that ramps up the COOL factor about a thousand percent. The Mateba semi-auto revolver in .44 Magnum...... It's Italian.....heyyyyy watcha ya' mouth! They also come in .357 magnum versions.


The Mateba even comes as a rifle kit. That's awesome!

If you haven't heard of them before, Google it! They are very unique. Of course they are not the first semi-auto revolver to hit the market, they are however the most modern!

I bet you did not know the Mateba had a different look.

Mateba early model .44 magnum.



The current Mateba .44 Magnum and what brought it on, the Webley Fosbury. The Webley Fosbury was in .455 Webley.

See.... now we are getting into some really cool shit!  ahem..... pardon my French!
This little puppy does not exist, but it really should. I would sell a kidney to buy one if they were real. Check out the imagination at work here. This gun really could be made....... where do I get on the waiting list!

Now you really have me thinking.

Using the right gas operation on a short stroke action like the Kriss .45acp and having it chambered for those short 12 gauge rounds made in Mexico I could actually see this as being a reality. I could just imagine how much this little bastard (pardon my french) might cost and the registration as an "any other weapon" would really cost if something like this would ever be approved by our friends in the ATFE. But damn would I like to shoot it just once.

Take care,
Tye

I'm thinking a .45acp semi-auto version of this would be fully legal. (mm and .40, and .357 mag. and .44 mag and the shorty shotgun shells................all of them. I have a funny feeling that my brain will not give up until the world meets this thing in reality.

Then again..... my brain is still trying to unwrap itself from around my shoulder fired .300 win mag and .338 lupua mag semi auto assault rifles with 30 round mags.......bwuhahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

We are two really sick individuals.

Now I am thinking full speed. To make it work in the 9mm, .45acp and .40 S&W the size is just about right. I think we would have to look at a bit longer barrel to stabilize the bullets. As for the .357 Magnum and the .44 Magnum the barrel would definitely have to be longer to properly stabilize the projectile. I think we would have to look towards at least a 4 inch barrel. The shorty 12 gauge speaks for itself as that can be managed by the choke used in the barrel. Of course it would be an internal choke like the Rem-Choke.  We would have to look at interchangeable barrels in the other calibers and I think it could be done.

Now do we know anyone who does mechanical engineering design?

Take care,
Tye

Yes.... I have a FRIEND who does these things..... he has been consulted on a few ideas.

On barrel length......... on some rounds..... we could go the bull pup route..... longer barrel, same length gun!

It sounds like your heading towards an SBR. I was trying to keep it as a handgun. But I guess if we would set it up for a 12 gauge we may as well go the SBR route. Then again in the shotgun barrel the law mandates that the barrel must be rifled. To get by this we could go with extremely shallow rifling with almost no twist at all.

Believe me, I am thinking also.

Hell, we can chamber it for .45 Long Colt with rifling and still be able to put .410 shells in it a'la Judge!

Bwuhahahahahahhaaaaaaaaa.........................

The only problem I foresee would be in the drum or stick mag we would use. Even the shortest 2 1/2 inch .410 shell would be to long to fit in the mag. Just take a look at the ejection port and you can see the limitation. I do agree that having the .410 would be epic in the size of the pistol and the number of rounds it would carry would be awesome. But I am afraid we would have to limit the size of the drum to handle the largest caliber it could shoot. I don't think it would be logical to extend a drum magazine to carry the .410 but it would be one hell of a setup. And unfortunately I have been hearing and reading about far to many problems with the Judge and shooting the .45 Colt. The accuracy has been said to be very bad and in reality the rifling really limits the .410 in accuracy and potential. The .410 spreads to soon and the rifling is so shallow it does not stabilize the bullet as well as it needs to be. Also the long jump of the bullet to the forcing cone does nothing for accuracy as well. But I guess if it could be done building the magazine wide enough to fit a .410 would really limit what it can do. I was looking at using the base frame and barrel shroud to change the barrel and magazine to convert to a different caliber.

Now that would be awesome.

Take care,
Tye
