One thing that will forever stay with me are Jame’s final words before parting ways. “You’re a good dude and you’ve got the right idea. You and I are going to have this conversation ten years from now, and I will leave you with this, SHOOTING IS THE EASY PART! Keep walking the path…”
I stood slightly confused in a cloud of dust as James peeled away with a shit eating grin on his face.
This is the chronicle of my journey along the path…
A Glock 17 after having 378,000 rounds fired through it. Apparently the barrel broke only once (when it had fired the 378,000th round from the translation), and the firing pin spring and the recoil spring have been replaced once. This would be safe to fire after replacing the barrel. Pretty damn cool.
Hirtenberger make ammunition, among other things, so I’m assuming this was the gun they used to test 9x19mm rounds.
Integrally suppressed M1 carbine
I am rock hard.
So was this a military thing or a civilian production?
Military, but I can’t find any information on how many were made, or if they were ever actually used. This one is in the Springfield Armory Museum.
