Originally designed in 1980 by a Rhodesian man named Hilton Walker, the Striker shotgun was refined and manufactured in South Africa prior to making its way over to the US. Have you heard about something like this before? Its claim to fame was a ’12round’ capacity in a fixed drum magazine, which was notably larger compared with magazine capacities accessible in different shotguns at the time. Nevertheless, tonight, without any doubts and there’re several ‘magazine fed’ shotguns that can give the same capacity with nothing like all the negative features Striker/Streetsweeper. The version built in the US and marketed as the Streetsweeper was a simpler and cheaper design, the more refined South African Striker guns used the vertical front grip to load and wind the drum and featured automatic ejection of spent shell cases. The Streetsweeper has a winding key on the drum front. It features a quite nice cylinder gap and sprays gas and particulates for out the drum front onto the shooter’s forearm and out the back to the shooter’s face. For instance, except that the 1st stage releases a catch and enables the drum to rotate one position under spring tension, the trigger is a doubleaction type akin to a revolver’s, where a revolver rotates with pressure supplied from the trigger mechanism. The Streetsweeper 2-nd stage trigger releases the hammer to fire a round.
In 1994, the Treasury Department issued a finding that the Striker 12 and Streetsweeper shotguns did not have a sporting purpose. Since they have got bore diameters over. Destructive Devices under the NFA. Plenty of info can be found easily online.existing ones had to be registered with the ATF, and sale of one tonight requires a 200 bucks tax stamp and the standard NFA transfer process, as such. The side effect, however or is that barrel length of destructive devices is unregulated.
However, streetsweeper with its original 18″ barrel. US army have a 40 mm version of this that is extremely regarded? By the way, your link isn’t clickable as it is.
It’s way better designed and built firearm, the GI uses a 6 shot rotary 40mm grenade launcher. I toured the shop where they make them. A well-known reason that is. You can see it here. The Milkor MGL is at least easier to load. Usually, it loads more like a Smith Wesson with its cylinder swung frame out.
You can find some more information about it here. Terrible is right. Consequently, given a choice, a Breda Modello 30 light machine gun seems far better to me than the Streetsweeper. That’s right! At least loading a Breda 30 isn’t as cumbersome an operation as it’s for this shotgun … we must pit the 2 terrible weapons against one another. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. The Breda is limited by its fixed hinged magazine, a responsibility for oil and cleanliness. Make sure you scratch a few comments about it. Its sights need to be rezeroed every time the barrel is changed. The Streetsweeper has a revolver action loaded Colt Peacemaker style but requires a spring to rotate. Now let me tell you something. There is cylinder gap and a long trigger pull. Spent shells must be ejected manually, in order to unload.
It seems to have no real purpose apart from looking cool, while the Streetsweeper doesn’t jam. Generaly, the Breda ugly, not very trustworthy as well as 30 as it’s, has a purpose which it at least fulfilled to some satisfaction. There was a vast bureaucratic panic in Britain in the late 1980s when some action film portrayed what appeared to be a revoving chamber 12 guage being used to blow up a GI convoy.
Consequently, revolving chamber and revolving mag shotguns were hurriedly banned. Britain was the Italian made. So here’s a question. Frederick Forsyth whitemercenariesinAfrica _Dogs of War_ with Christopher Walken wielding a 25mm Manville gun with greatly exaggerated pyrotechnics and with FN/Israeli Uzi 9mm SMGs in ebook lieu MP40s?
It is the Protecta and Stryker possibly should be understood or at least ‘contextualized as’ special products of whitish last years rule in Rhodesia and apartheid in South Africa and the gun culture of these 2 nations. Just think for a fraction of second. As oftentimes now too, whitey farmers were frequently targets of attack by the black African majority who frequently held grievances against the whitedominated governance order, or who saw this kind of farmers as relatively prosperous and hence targets for robbery and/or murder.a relatively appeal compact firearm that should be used under the patronage of an outnumbered whitey Eurpeoandescended farmer against multiple assailants with bludgeons and knives and agricultural implements like hatchets and machetes and so on led to loads of odd Forgotten weapons. The Armsel Striker or Protecta offered 12 shots gauge shotgun ammunition. Considering the above said. Whenever telescoping bolt SMG design that could not be used for fullauto fire, still another firearm was a semiauto solely Czech version samopal VZ 25 or 26 in 9mm Parabellum or 62x25mm Tokarev caliber that retained the ’40round’ magazines in a compact. Whenever in the course of the wars in the frontline states the SADF captured quantities of Soviet and ‘Yugoslav supplied’ Eastern EU short arms, as well as the Czech SMGs, magazines were fairly elementary.
You can find some more info about this stuff here. The Armsel Striker and the aforementioned semiautoonly Sa. Make sure you scratch a comment about it. MAG 7 by Techno Arms PTY, a shotgun with a 12inch barrel and overall length of just 21 inches feeding exceptional shortened ’12 gauge’ shells through a box magazine in the pistol grip. On top of that, still another odd shotgun design was the 27inch long Neostad with 2 6shot tube magazines for a total of 12 rounds.
Seriously. MAG7″ shotguns for sale. Consequently, now we got a selection of minishells to use, whereas when the were 1st reachable, ammunition was scarce.
Sounds familiardoes it not? David, that’s a pretty good analysis and digression on your element thanks! Have you heard about something like that before? In the meantime, I’ll stick to my Mossberg 500 Persuader 12 gauge. Rhodesia had turned out to be uncle Bob’s Zimbabwe.
Whitish farmers in Africa currently suffer one of, in case not the biggest homicide victimization rates in the world. Just think for a minute. Nairobi, offering rewards for snitching about guns.
Oftentimes the VZ25 style Rhodesian semi auto carbines were on sale in Britain in the later to mid 1980s under cobra title. Czech guns.
Notice that there were one or 2 Sterling police Carbines advertized, which had made it back from Africa. Essentially, they were open bolt and differed from the SMG in having an interchangeable semi auto completely trigger group.
This is the case. There were in addition different bits and pieces of Rhodesiana which showed up in Britain. Consequently, frankford Arsenal report on silencers. Matter of fact that the British cops had stolen the very best books from that batch until I got there.
Anyways, while as reported by tiny World Arms, the Sterling Police Carbine originated in the course of the Mau Mau guerrilla campaign in Kenya in the 1950s. They were sold to planters as defense weapons against the terrorists, whose fundamental activities apparently consisted of random murders and robberies, plus cattle rustling. The Mau Mau were mainly from the Kikuyu tribe, all with anything unlike respect to the victim’s ethnicity.
On top of this, manHunt In Kenya, philip or even by Ian Henderson Goodhart. You are right… it’s all coming back. Furthermore, the Rhuzi was the square stamped version, no? I’m sure you heard about this. There were various different oddities like the Northwood R76 and another identical weapons.
Considering the above said. Back in the eighties, the live semi autos were coming to Britain. Furthermore, there was a wonderful period when there was a style for semi auto pistol calibre carbines. Rhodesian Cobra and LDP. Besides, there were the long barrelled closed bolt look alikes which had been designed for the US market.
Right after a mass shooting in 1987, they were banned and all the licensed ones either had to be de activated or were confiscated.
The 1970s and 80s in southern Africa seems to been a golden era for simplified carbines.
Rhodie dollars for a carbine! You see, zim before the 100,000,000,000,000 notes were issued. Paul Krugman will have approved of uncle Bob’s quantitative easing policies. You’ll notice a few of this kind of ‘Uzis’ are in reason Austrian ‘MPi 69’, a much more interesting and nearly completely forgotten weapon, in case you get a close enough look at warfare Dogs.
Lots of info can be found by going online.you actually never know, there is a hoary rather old narrative that some hapless 1975 victim OPEC terrorist attack in Vienna by Ilich Ramirez Sanchez aka Carlos the Jackal the PFLP and some members of June German 2nd movement got his hands on a Steyr MPi69″ couldn’t figure out methods to cock the weapon. It’s possibly a myth. Keep in mind about the Cobray version that was remachined to accept 45 70″ ammo, and it was affectionately called The Lady’s Home Companion. Then once again, with a 30 something pound pull ‘singleaction’ trigger, it is rather a OT of handgun.
Notice, iIRC it is built on a solid frame like a Colt Peacemaker. Needless to say, to make it a swingout cylinder you should apparently need to machine an entirely modern frame with a decent cylinder arbor from scratch. Forward for cylinder rotation, back for sealing, as for a gas seal, that should require either tracking the cylinder forward to insert the case mouth to the barrel’s forcing cone, or else rebuilding it so the barrel probably will be moved forward and back, apparently by the forward handgrip.
WebleyFosbery automatic revolver or the older Mauser Zig Zag revolver, to rotate the cylinder with a stud tracking from side to side in the topstrap. Needless to say, combine that with a barrel mechanism that moved the barrel from side to side about 1/4″ at the beginning and end of a pumping stroke.
Keep reading. Pancor Jackhammer auto shotgun used a setup just like this to rotate its cylinder. I do not recall when it was gas or recoiloperated. Matter of fact that at least it wasn’t a hybrid like the magnificently complex and confusing Franchi SPAS 12″. You should take it into account. By the time you got one and the other safeties off, an assailant just imagine apparently have taken the gun away from you and proceeded to beat the everloving ‘you understand what’ out of you with it. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. It is one good point was that it was vast and heavy enough to make a decent club.
The Jackhammer is amongst the most gloriously stupid designs ever made. It is a gasoperated, blowforwardish, ‘WebleyFosberylike’ revolver that was originally designed to use ‘non reloadable’ cassettes as the cylinders that could double as land mines. It’s likewise crucial to note that it’s a cylinder. One of my special favorites, it was an abject failure.
With all that said. Jeremy, at least the Gewehr 41 was easier to load than the Jackhammer or the Streetsweeper. It was maybe not as cumbersome, save for its weight distribution. You see, watching the Streetsweeper in action was a walk down memory lane. There was a.
For the time, it had some good concepts that merely didn’t pretty make it. The Cobray Ladies Home Companion, the ‘mini street sweeper’ in. Besides, lC/.
The design is rubbish but needs to be seen in context. When this gun was designed Rhodesia was a state under heavy sanctions and under pressure from a guerilla combat that should finally destroy it. It had to develop an arms market and in such desperate times all things are considered and similarities to the last ditch 3rd weapons Reich is drawn except there was no real manufacturing base or rule of firearm design in Rhodesia.
Now regarding the aforementioned reason. Incidently everyone remember I think something called the spider a vehical roof mounted circular array of 12 gauge barrels that was developed in Rhodesia at this time. Finally, you couldn’t aim it I think you just fired it off when your truck was ambushed and prayed it scared somebody off. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Of course, looks more like the stuff seen in Libya in the course of their revolution than 3rd Reich. Let me tell you something. That’s a very good method to put it. Then once more, folks in desperation will do some strange things. Then, rhodesian guns were the stopgap solution to an issue compounded by lack of intellectual resources. Generally, assuming that I had no experience in firearms making but plenty of machining expertise and materials, I could try improvising a crude gun. In this perspective, the Streetsweeper is better comparing with nothing. You need to get better guns when you get the chance. Stopgap solutions should not solve the concern completely.
Fascinating and insightful data on relatively obscure weapons designed and built under duress at a time of good country management turmoil. The should definitely make for real collector’s items now. Excellent link concerning the Becker. For example, bTW, the Taurus Circuit Judge is pretty well-known among gun owners here in the United States. That is interesting.since it’s configured as a revolving cylinder shorter carbine, complete with substantial buttstock, the larger cylinder diameter required to accommodate.
a great deal of thanks for sharing such intriguing and valuable info, in order to all. Nonetheless, the 1st straight line will study as David Carlson. As well, sorry for the typo.
So, i’d recommend as a source well written magazine by Long Streetsweepers as a reference, since this is modern and pretty broad subject. This is well researched and based material along with types, tactics, ballistics as well as narrative. The author examines types of uses types with even army potential. Realise where I was involved one time and developed my own views. The big difficulty we’ve got limited range capabilities of buck ammunition type. It is since some sort of hybrid shots still wait to be developed, it’s an attractive region of thought. In the event that happened a the newest field of versatility in shotgun based weapon could be searched with success for.
With that said, ian reviewed Timothy Mullin’s _The Fighting Submachine Gun, shotgun, machine Pistol as well as. You should take it into account. HandsOn’ Evaluation_ ought to be banned. They liked to get the evil guns on the show back then. Recall another time when people got a M11″ looking gun, complete with fake suppressor. In the 1960’s and 1970’s the troubles was saturday nighttime specials that were cheap and straightforward to ‘concealthen’ it was the following over-priced, bulky nonconcealable things that were the troubles. It’s a well it was trying age to scare folks with how something looked, not with what it was capable of doing.
Jo Jo’s comments do a nice task of enlightening why it was made. Whenever machining and no forgings timing/tuning, and all that The appeal to folks in the US was purely it appearance, from a manufacturing viewpoint it will be easier to tool up for this than for a Remington Simpler simpler. In any sort of practical competition it will be complicated to see it beating any Remington or Mossberg pump gun, with no an extended magazine. Clandestine criminalmanufactured revolver shotgun seized in Taiwan… Made up of paintball gun parts and whatnot… Fairly Stryker ish, protectaish, ‘Streetsweeper ish’. Premium Members’ Forum.
