Century 21 Small Arms (Part Four)

Unlike the O'Dwyer system, each successive bullet rests in its barrel with its tail into the head of the previous one, and thus the ampoule shots will not deform when fired. Well, a Teflon ampoule performs the role of a wad, does not allow gas to break through to the next ampoules, and flies out of the barrel along with the next bullet. In each barrel of such ammunition there are three pieces, so the full ammunition of the pistol is 48 shots, that is, more than any other pistol, or even an automatic rifle! The caliber of bullets of this weight and size layout is 5,45-mm - like the APS pistol or AK-74 submachine gun.

Today, equipping soldiers with special weapons to fight terrorists in urban environments.

As for the "firing mechanism", it is located in the pistol grip and is something like an ordinary "mobile phone"! Handle and trigger "touch". It is enough to take a gun in his hand so that he is ready to shoot. In this case, one short pressure causes one shot, and a long one - a turn! That is, the firing mechanism sends a message to the microchips in the trunks for shooting according to a previously calculated program. At the same time, the number of shots remaining at the disposal of the shooter is immediately displayed on the side display, which, of course, is very convenient.

As for the question, and what to do with pistols with partially shot ammunition, then, if you think about it, it should not arise! And at the warehouses, and later they will be used to train future owners of such weapons at shooting ranges.

He fired once, he fired two, and a bullet whistled into the bushes!

With intensive firing, the plastic may lose its mechanical properties, therefore two cooling systems are provided for in the gun at once. The first is through holes going from the muzzle of the barrel to the breech. When firing, the powder gases flowing from the barrels create cravings in them, and air is pumped through these channels, due to which the shooting barrels are cooled. In addition, heat sensors are mounted in the barrel assembly. As soon as the temperature becomes critical, the screen turns red, and the firing mechanism is blocked until it drops. Thus, due to the presence of electronics in it, this gun not only shoots, but also “talks” with its owner. Well, in order for the bullets fired from it to fly right on target, and “not whistling into the bushes”, the channels of the barrel block are designed in such a way that they all look at one point at a distance 50 m - optimal for firing from a short-barreled weapon .

Increasingly, there are reports of the development of special weapons for "firing from around the corner."

Red button "for professionals»

As the sociopath Sorg from the Fifth Element movie said, “A professional would first ask about the red button.” This button is also present here, and serves so that in the event of something, by pressing it in a certain way, you could destroy this pistol, without waiting for the total expenditure of warheads in it. Well, and when all the shots in the pistol are out, he is no longer fit for anything and simply ... utilized, like all other plastic products, from which you can then, say, make flower pots or garden fences!

"Shooting computer" 21 century

And now let's talk about where such a pistol can be used, in essence, representing a “shooting computer”. It is clear that it can be cheap only with sufficiently large-scale mass production, because in this case all this electronics will cost a penny. Moreover, it can become a real “national pistol” of Russia and this is why: The 16-barreled 5,45-mm pistol with plastic bullets is an excellent civilian weapon (one pistol for life with scanning the time of use from the firing mechanism!). But the nine-barrel pistol caliber 9-mm, with three or four charges in each barrel and metal bullets - an excellent weapon for the army and the police. Finally, if you make the hole of the barrel smaller than the inside, and behind the bullet we put a “cork” with a sealant, then we will have an 9-16-barrel silent pistol, and if we place the arrows in the barrels, then the gun for scuba divers is completely sealed, lightweight and convenient. Now the computerization of everything and everyone goes with unprecedented steps, “war for neodymium”, “ecological war”, “a century of hunger and murder” are sacred ahead of us - so combining the production of computers and firearms promises in this regard a huge economic effect for the country!

That's how they have to act today!

By the criterion of cost-effectiveness!

And this, by the way, is one of the most important arguments in favor of such weapons! After all, if a pistol in modern troops is, in essence, a status weapon, then a one-time multiply-charged weapon will be more profitable than a metal “fool” “for life”! Moreover, statistics show that even in this case, the officer who got him must “solve all his problems” with the first three shots. Therefore, it simply doesn’t need replaceable large-capacity stores - “the one who shoots the second one is killed first!” Yes, but how are they made today? They take a steel pig weighing in 3 kg and milled, converting 50% of its weight into chips, and then even more. And for what? So that in the end a person would run and drag 1,5 kg of alloy steel on himself, and use the same machine gun in battle ?! That is, from the point of view of economics, such a “shooting computer” made of plastic is a very, very profitable thing. This is a huge market and potential jobs in the most innovative technologies for a long time!

Weapons for every taste!

The 3D technology is also advantageous in that it allows you to create weapons, so to speak, “for every taste and price”, because barrel blocks can be four, six or octagonal and, accordingly, have 7, 9, 11 or even 25 trunks, each of which can be stacked up to 5 ampoule shots. Thus, it will be possible to make 9 shots from the 45 channel block and from the 25 channel even 125! That is, a soldier will no longer need to take bullets with him! The shape of the bullets may also be the most varied, depending on the intended use: ricocot-free with a blunt head, increased lethal force, armor-piercing, aerodynamic for firing at long distances. An armor piercing bullet-arrow can have three segments and an armor-piercing core.

Barrel shop. Design and options.

And now let's imagine that using the same technology, an assault rifle, made in 3D technology with the “mobile” principle of communication of the firing mechanism with microchips in the barrel unit, can be created.

Perspective assault rifle for 3D technology:
1 - ring-grip-store; 2 - block of trunks; 3 - stopper mounting block of trunks (front); 4 - thermal insulation cover; 5 - display screen; 6 - display screen lid; 7 - double-sided breech; 8 - the basis of the swivel unit; 9 - swivel breech knot; 10 - carrying handle combined with optical and electronic sight; 11 - control tumblers recessed into the handle; 12 - eye cup; 13 - stopper mounting block of trunks (rear); 14 - butt; 15 - battery; 16 - supporting console; 17 - breech cap; 18 - pistol grip; 19 - front handle; 20 - tactical flashlight.

Virtually the entire design of this rifle is made of plastic in technology 3D. After all, the Glock company even makes valves on its pistols out of it, and the Belgian FN2000 also has a lot of plastic parts, and we, are we worse? And the design of this weapon is such that it will be very convenient to use it. I inserted one block of trunks into the casing, where it is fixed by a spring, then turned it by 180 degrees and inserted the second one. Thus, having ammunition of two 45-charging units, it will be possible to make 90 shots from it without reloading, and what modern machine gun or rifle has such a large magazine? Each block, in addition, can be loaded with bullets of different types, have barrels of different caliber, and, in addition, inside such blocks can be rocket-propelled grenades, including with a programmable fuse, as well as signal and rescue missiles and even ampoules with gas!

The order of shots when the trigger is pressed is determined by the microchip, so they are made in turn from different trunks to prevent them from overheating. If the charges have ended in one of the blocks, then you will just need to turn it over, turning the mount itself, that is, replace the front one with the rear one that has not been used yet and continue shooting. The electronic shots indicator shows with an arrow how many shots he has in stock. Moreover, it is very important that an outsider cannot bring these weapons into action, because, due to the presence of a microchip, each instance has its own password-code. Well, the fact that the barrel is not one, but many of them, does not matter for aiming, because they are all aimed at one point: only the gun on the 25 and the machine gun on the 400-600.

And another advantage of this rifle is the ability to fire from around the corner! How? And everything is very simple. The turning knot of the breech can be moved forward along the mast and fixed there in a position perpendicular to it. Observation is conducted through a video camera and display screen. Now the rifle, which becomes at the same time similar to the letter “T”, can be protruded from around the corner and shoot, without exposing itself to the slightest danger, and from both blocks of trunks in both directions at once, which is achieved - yes, you guessed it , the recoillessness of its action - the quality in this case, it is essential to ensure accurate shooting. Of course, such a regime cannot be considered regular, since the shooting is fought in both directions, and you must be very careful not to accidentally hit your own, but in extreme circumstances - well, you never know what can happen during a street fight - why not shoot?

Soldiers with a microchip inside?

However, according to this principle (that is, with a microchip inside), the most ordinary Kalashnikov assault rifle can be made! You do not want your weapons to be stolen from warehouses, to be used by soldiers from bandit formations, and during the war years - by enemy soldiers? Then equip all types of individual small arms with a microchip built into it, a communication system like a mobile phone and a small charge of explosives. Either in the butt or in the pistol grip. Each fighter of his army in turn also receives a microchip, which is implanted under his skin, and which contains a code-activator. As soon as a person takes a weapon in his hands, the computerized weapon system compares his code with that person’s code and, if he only has one, gives the go-ahead for use. Otherwise (if the person is “not ours”), the system undermines the charges inherent in it and the person loses a hand or shoulder, which undoubtedly will disable him. This system can be made in such a way that it can be turned off by satellite signal, and re-enabled after a batch of such weapons is in “alien hands”, with all the ensuing consequences. After all, there were impressive examples of 20 century 30-20-s sales of Central Asian Basmachis to specially crafted rifle cartridges containing dynamite instead of gunpowder, and ... for many of them it was worth their lives and health, often lost in the most crucial moment !

        And this is another example showing that there have always been those who wanted to look for an alternative to metal in the field of weapons.

        The Swedish king Gustav II Adolf, who took an active part in the Thirty Years War, sought to reduce the weight of the guns and make them more mobile. To this end, the so-called "leather guns", invented in 1627 by the German colonel Melchior von Wurmbrandt, were introduced into the Swedish army. They consisted of a thin copper barrel 1/8 caliber thick and were reinforced with iron hoops. In addition, they were rewound with ropes, fixed with a kind of glue, and pulled together with leather. The weight of the barrel was only 74 kg. Leather guns showed themselves poorly: trunks overheated, they often burst.

Okay for the "short barrel" - at 25-50 meters, but you're at 400-600 meters waving! The first bullet will fly into the head of the target, the last will fall into the ground beneath it about 5 - 10 meters. Hafiga is it FSE?

          A man called Have Blue does not have such capabilities, but he managed to create a plastic receiver on his own. He was afraid to make it to a large caliber and settled on the caliber .22lr (5,6 mm). True, the printing of complex form took several days - the author emphasizes that his 3D printer is now outdated.
          During tests of the weapon printed on the printer, the author shot more than 100 rounds of ammunition and did not notice any difference between the factory and the "home" model. Except perhaps the weight, since plastic (Bolson ABS) is lighter than aluminum.

      3. Take the howitzer and cannon of the same caliber. No matter how much you experiment with the canopy of gunpowder, the gun will not give the howitzer trajectory, and the howitzer will not give out the gun’s flatness.
      In small arms, when changing the barrel length by one “cartridge” length and adjusting the powder charge, the ballistics will jump. At a distance of 10-15 meters slightly. But when firing at 100 - 700 meters, accuracy will not be at all.

From the outside, it looks like a feverish delirium, or a stream of crazy consciousness, but sometimes very sensible thoughts slip through :) So let a person write, he doesn’t require everyone to prostrate themselves before his genius. :)
      There are characters who write worse, but they accompany it with indefatigable aggression and complete rejection of criticism. This is sad ...
      And then I opened the page in the morning, read it, smiled at the ideas and raised my mood in the morning :)

    Vyacheslav Olegovich, maybe it's better about knights and samurai?
    No, well, just replace in your text plastic with wood and 3D printing with 3D milling - it will turn out about the same, but it will immediately be clear that it does not work.
