The problem you have JSR is that you are not in the army designing the future of warfare.
If you had everyting you needed you could probably design a very good hybrid assault rifle..

I am really looking forward to this, a low volume, high mix hybrid with a floating barrel, scope and rifling would be AMAZING! *hint*

Believe me, I constantly get the feeling I'm in the wrong line of work.

The problem is that really I only have about 20 metres max shooting distance on my property, which means that anything you described is a bit redundant for my situation, I'm much more likely to produce something like the KS-23 :D

That would certainly be a good aesthetic model, the "pump" could act as extra suppressor volume - that or a Hushpower :D

aye, the hushpower's are cool.
A sawn off break action suppressed "shotgun" style gun would be pretty cool as well.

You just took a bunch of cool firearm related words and slammed them into a sentence!

:D

"sawn off" and "suppressed" don't really go together, you want a bit of barrel length to keep power up while keeping the sound down.

Oh, the joys of a local shooting range :roll:

Don't know if there are any in your area though?

Not going to be allowed on a shooting range with anything unlicensed :roll:

You know, the "short" version of the KS-23 is actually quite pretty...

hmm nice! are you going to actually make that or are you just thinking about it? i was just playing around with one of my cartridges and a 1m x 8mm barrel and am thinking about making something similar but maybe more of a rifle stile, anyways good luck hope you do make it

I don't really like the idea of having to unscrew the barrel, fuel, place burst disk, replace barrel and pressurise for every shot though, so I think I would still want it with cartridges. Having a pump action tube magazine is a little beyond the complexity I'm willing to live with though.

Still pondering options for this one, competing with such silly ideas as making a "baby" version of the rattlesnake valve for 1mm calibre :roll:

yes well that was one thing that i wasn't sure i wanted to do but i could always make another gun with the existing cartridges i have i would just have to live with the fact that i would have flow restrictions and wouldn't be able to preload the ammo. if i was you i would go for something 4.5 -3mm in a Thompson “Sub Machine Gun” body

but i mean we all have different tastes :)

I'd love to make smaller cartridges but the sticking point is the ignition, beyond a certain size the spark just arcs externally, and I've had no success with hot wire ignition which would be ideal in this case.

well i just recently moded my spark gaps to pretty much nothing and have been getting better ignition with a piezo at 10-15x and have got up to a 20x using my high energy 9v ignitor (pretty much like a stun gun) and its been quite consistent with the ignitor but still a little sketchy with the piezo
