Metalstorm was/is a hoax and if we aren't currently doing so we should start tracking down the fraudsters.
But in regards to the recoil from one of the advantages of the metalstorm "system" was to be reduced or eliminated recoil.
As far reading through here, I see there is quiet a few sad, swollen and JEALOUS persons here, dismissing The MetalStorm without even researching.
Fantastic weapon system.
I have been watching it for years now.
I would hate to be on the other end of it
Sounds like your misguided, did you buy stocks and lost your
The concept and design is fascinating and i hope it goes to
The technology isnt a pyramid scheme, its absolutely groundbreaking.
The current development of this technology is a pyramid scheme as such,
although I wouldnt call it this I would refer to it more along the lines of braindead.
To take the first ever electronically controlled caseless ammunition and use it in a muzzle loader?? Words fail to describe the stupidity of that.
The technology is as I said groundbreaking, its the platform there trying to use that technology in thats flawed.
I read an interview with Mike Dwyer the developer back in the early nineties, when he first developed the idea of caseless,electronically fired rounds he was actually trying to come up with safety systems for firearms that would prevent anyone but the owner from being able to fire the weapon. The basic idea was a fingerprint/palmprint scanner on the grip recognising the user and allowing the weapon to fire. From this it seems to have wandered off down the garden path.(especially when you yanks started showing interest)
The two very large drawbacks to utilizing this technology to increase the rate of fire far beyond the rate of current firearms, I list below.
1. Complete lack of a loading mechanism that can keep up with the system.
(the people that are developing the current stacked/muzzle loader arrangement should be slapped with a giant tuna then shot)
Both looming obstacles but by no means impossible barriers, in time these issues will be adequately resolved and the finished product will be devastating.
My whole point here I spose is dont hate the technology, hate the current platform and the so called proffesionals developing it.
