Holy, this guy.  Very wholesome.  This is the type of innovation I’ve been yearning for:

40 rounds in that ring. Forward ejecting. No magazine, no springs for ammo follower, just pure conversion of linear motion into rotational motion. He says since the ring uses recoil force to rotate, it absorbs a ton of energy and makes for a super soft shooting gun.  Unbelievable.

In the video description he says he’s planning on giving the files away soon.  He also wrote – “I don’t really need the money, because the firearms industry is a LOT of work, and I just like to do fun hobbies.”… Daaaamn, purely doing it for sport? 😲  What a king.  Such a cool thing about the 3d printing community, is that type of attitude.  I do wish there was some way for these guys who are really coming out with cool and original stuff like this to monetize though (outside of crap like PaTrEoN).  Perhaps someday, there will be a forward looking gun company that will realize that releasing a design like this that’s out of the norm would no doubt attract a significant number of people as long as the cost isn’t insane; bring guys like this on board and give them a cut.

NOT ideal:

Gotta watch that muzzle direction. 👀😬 According to the article on FOX 8 Cleveland, it was 9mm and went through his cheeks.  Definitely could have been a lot worse.

I can’t say I’ve ever seen this gun being assembled:

It would also be interesting to see one of the Walther employees build one.  The Walther guy mentions at around the 5:30 point in the video, that it typically takes 6 minutes for them to build a PPK.  I can’t image they would be hover-building any of it like NOIR is in the video, but you never know.  From experience, holding something in your hand and trying to hammer it doesn’t really work that well.

Always great to see NOIR thriving.  Despite the fact making content is obviously still “work”, it looks a pretty sweet gig.  YouTube really seems to be suppressing a lot of the vids though… hard to believe someone with 1.85M subscribers would only get 97,000 views on a video in 4 days.

Weird flex, but ok:

haha the dedication to collecting these, and the technical analysis is great.

4 different types in his collection.

ASMR Rich stays making it his job to soothe the people:

These vids of his are blowing up!  He’s been making ASMR vids for a month and already has 135,000 subs.  The vid above already has 150,000 views on it.  I feel like even the anti-gun people that like ASMR would appreciate this, but I could be wrong.  I scrolled the comments for a minute, and couldn’t see anything negative.  Good vibes only.

You can also check out the first post I did on ASMR Rich if you want.

Thoughts?  Looks like this guy really found a niche within a niche within a niche.

Administrative Results takes a look:

There are a lot of entertaining gun YouTube channels I’m finding out about lately.  This channel seems really good.  I liked that intro edit.  If I see an auto Glock related video I’m obligated to click and watch.
