The Pedersen Device is an attachment developed during World War I for the M1903 Springfield rifle that allowed it to fire a short 0.30 (7.62 mm) caliber intermediate cartridge in semi-automatic mode. This wonder weapon was developed to allow infantry to dramatically increase their rate of fire while on the move, while also allowing the rifle to be used in conventional bolt action mode for long-range fire from the trenches.

This very rare collectors item is up for auction, with a starting bid (or buy now?) of $23000

It does not include a magazine, so you’d have to procure one before you got to use this beauty. I’m sure anyone that would pay $23,000 for this device probably wouldn’t be shooting with it though.

Pro Tip: You slice the stacked package bacon perpendicular to the slices instead of just peeling the strips off.

Looks like any given digital camouflage pattern.. MARPAT, ACUPAT etc…  Pretty operator.

A pretty cool x-ray look inside at its parts, and their function.

Hickok45 is the man. A real likable guy… in fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone on the internet say anything bad about him.

M-1000s are hardly dynamite by the traditional definition, but seeing as they got them from China town, they might have more than the usual amount of explosives in them.

Doesn’t look like those hipsters will be surfing the web for indy music, ironic t-shirts, and raybans anymore with that mac.
