When I first heard of the Metal Storm technology I had a burst of imagination and with nothing to do at school I made plans for a metal storm SMG. It
is rather like the Russian PP-19 "Bizon" as it has a long magazine which is in fact the barrels. There were plans for 2 or 3 barrel weapons. They
are to be made of light weight but heat resistant metals of some sort. (Titanium?). The entire barrel would be replaced when reloading.
One interesting feature about this concept is that it is electrically fired and thus the time between shots can be changed and the rate of fire can be
changed for different scenarios. Higher for Close combat (950rpm+) and slower for more open battle grounds (750-500rpm) this is just something I
thought up of in High school and I'm not sure if any of it is practical.
Another design for a type of weapon is like that of a USAS shotgun.world.guns.ru...
with this I mean the magazine
would contain 20 or so small barrels and each would have 2, 3 or 4 rounds in each. The barrels would rotate after a burst is fired. There would be no
semi auto fire or full auto.
