expensive

Is this an actual donkey? Or a donkey edition cornershot?

*shrug* They made a cat one so who knows :D

One can never be too careful…

For those of you that though the initial leaked price of approximately $1500 was too good to be true, you were right!

From the recent press release:

Suggested retail price: Basic $2,685 and Enhanced $3,061

The Bushmaster ACR for the commercial market is available in the Basic and Enhanced configurations.  The additional features for the Enhanced version include an AAC® Blackout™ NSM Flash Hider for exceptional reduction of muzzle flash; multi-functional, three-sided aluminum hand guard with integral MIL-STD 1913 accessory rail; and folding, six-position telescoping composite stock with rubber butt pad, sling attachment mounts and 2-point push button sling. Each configuration of the commercial ACR is offered in a non-reflective, black finish or Coyote Brown (30118).

I’m sure they will sell enough of them anyway, but at almost double the initial leaked price for the most basic model, a lot of people are going to be angry.

What you are looking at is a weapon platform that can shoot around corners with the aid of a hinged receiver, video camera, and monitor.  This particular model is fitted with a stuffed cat in order to disguise it as a weapon.

Check out the YouTube video:

AR-15 pistol, 40mm grenade launcher, and Glock corner shots are also available.

I’m not saying the CornerShot isn’t cool.. because it definitely is.  It wouldn’t have much utility for the recreational shooter, and judging by the price tag ($7000 – $7500 according to an article on their site) I doubt there are too many out there that would buy one for fun.

*You’re strolling down the street… soccer moms are grabbing their kids and glaring at you… the police are called… you end up face down on the concrete…*

That is one scenario that wouldn’t likely happen if you were able to have one of these in the US and open carry it.

OpenCarryThe Swiss Mini Gun

It shoots 2.34 mm calibre rim fire ammunition which we have developed for it and which is the smallest rim fire ammunition in the World.

According to the information page:

It is NOT available in the US because it does not meet the minimum size prequisites according to the ATF Form 4590 criteria for weapons.

Interestingly enough in Canada it is apparently 100% legal, and is not even classified as a firearm.

Price – 6’300 Swiss France (which is equal to roughly $6200 US !!!#$!@#$) wow.. that’s pricey, not to mention it also says ammo is $10 US each shot!

Nevertheless it’s definitely feat of mechanical engineering!
