AA-12 possibly the most frightening gun there is.

There is no such thing as a man-portable gatling gun; or at least, not one that is public knowledge. All those gatling guns carried around in movies and video games are pure fiction. There is no way a human can lug around a Vulcan, batteries, and a backpack with over 1000 rounds of ammo, let alone fire the thing.

I was on a battle damage assessment patrol near the DMZ outside of the village of My Loc, when I first saw the devastation the Vulcan Mini cannons has on human bodies.... Seven months later I directed a C-47 mission on a battalion sized unit that encircled the Marin infantry company I was attached to as a ground to air radio operator from Tactical Air Control Party.... The aircraft call sign was Spooky 1/4 and they took out enough of the enemy that we never had to expose our positions on the lines and just listened all night into the light of daybreak as they removed their dead and wounded..... Spooky best describes what it is like to direct that kind of fire power under jungle canopy at night... We suffered no casualties that night, moved out after the enemy had moved on and took and held Tiger Mountain until the last day of the operation.

I would love to have a semi-auto version of the AA12. I would sell my current Remington 870 combat shotgun for it in a heart beat. Great weapon. The fin stabilized grenade ammo is simply amazing. Arm our troops with this weapon and the ammo and they'll be able to put the fear of god in all enemies.

Yeah it's a high rate of fire...but the dude is all over the place with it.

This is why I don't like AK designs, they can't handle recoil, and because of this aren't very accurate.

I find this weapon's superiority in recoil dampening alone remarkable, I'm hoping our troops will see more weapons with such abilities sooner than later!

No it's not


That video is of an automatic .22. That's not even hi-powered rifle ammo. Gatling guns range from 7.62mm to 30mm, and are mounted for good reason on aircraft or vehicles.

You have hit upon the reason I posted this.I've never seen a weapon with such a large round that was this stable when firing,even on full auto.

I have but they are usually mounted on something much heavier and some are gyroscopically stabilized...

I like my Winchester Super X3.. Sure it's a civilian gun but check this out!



Ask yourself this... What could you do with 12 rounds in 1.44 seconds? (faster than the AA12)

Have you seen an ak-47 catch on fire before? He is holding it with one hand and not much recoil! 300 rounds per minute with big drum magazines added into the mix, check it out:

I've fired many full auto AKs. The fact is this big dude in the video is still having a hard time staying on point. He's all over the place. He's not just trying to spray an area, that's a natural reaction to the AK.

On another note....Effing rednecks

Naturally you will get more recoil with the bigger, more powerful rounds then with sub-machine guns or even an m-16. I prefer the ak-74(5.45mm) with the smaller round than the ak-47 (7.62mm) but coincidentally I have not fired either so I cant say for sure.

You can also get the ak-101 with 223 caliber:

The way the M16 is designed(Straight line from barrel to buttstock) allows the recoil forces to pass from front to back instead of muzzle rise. The difficulty of the AK design is that the muzzle rises more so it is difficult to keep on target.

I've fired 7.62x39 chambered AR platform rifles that display the same characteristics as the 5.56mm chambered AR...Albeit with a bit more rearward motion due to the bigger round. It's a design issue for me. AK is far more "reliable" in the sense that you can abuse the hell out of it and it will go boom...Not so reliable in the sense that the bullet may not hit what you're aiming at.

So one kicks up while the other kicks back. I see your point but the m-16 has a tendency to jam according to some reports so neither is perfect! Maybe its the "socialist" in me that prefers russian technology and they are quite a bit cheaper too.

That cheaper part sounded capitalist to me! lol.

If the ammo is crap and you don't clean you rifle...yes it will jam. Any gun will jam. Even the AK will jam if you don't take care of it..The myth that the AK is capable of going without ANY maintenance is just that, a myth:



To stay on topic the way the AA 12 handles recoil is truly revolutionary..I just want them to scale the size of the beast down a little.

Guns are machines...you gotta treat them like one.
