Would this be possible?
300BLK outperforms any pistol caliber you can put up against it even out of a 4.5in barrel.
I think you could do a through-grip magazine that would fit in a medium sized hand alright and get 18+1 rds in double stack.
Then you'd have caliber commonality with a rife round as well and could have a complete GTW/SHTF system and save massively on SAWC by sharing calibers in both your LR and SR/PD weapons.
pic related out of a handgun?
uh, yes please.
> 7 rounds of single stacked .300 BLK
You're obviously missing a pretty big concept here, noguns. Just take your shameful anger and leave this thread.
OP, the problem would likely be the cartridge length in the drip, you'd have to do something like a c96 magazine.
>I might be wrong but I betcha you can't name something that doesn't exist!
that ergo would be odd as fuck, maybe if the grip angle were really far forward like a luger then it would be manageable in the hand, but AR mags are bretty thick bro, and there's not much room at all to shrink them any more.
the idea sounds cool as fuck tho, I buy that shit even as just a gimmick
through the grip magazine AR pistol you say?

Everybody in here is retarded.
I have a hard-on for the idea of a 7.62x39mm pistol with magazine in grip and some Russian Space Magic for feeding. OR a helical magazine with like 12 rounds. Perhaps a pan mag would work too... but then you need to either A: put the sights on the mag (ugh) or B: increase sight height over bore to clear the magazine. I still think that's the best idea.
The best you'd be able to do without making it unwieldy as fuck would be pic related. No way you're fitting a rifle mag in the grip without compromising the fuck out of ergonomics.
Optimized for short barrels and suppressed. Going from a 16" barrel to a 9" barrel you only lose like 10% velocity. Closely mimics the ballistics of 7.62×39 in an AR platform and no feeding issues while being able to use a stanag at full capacity as well as uses standard mil spec bcg.
Better subsonic performance than 5.56 and more barrier blind than 5.56 in supersonic loads.
Basically, it's the round of the future and gives you the most punch you'll get out of an ar without going full /arg/ levels of gucci/boutique/autism
What if you made a magazine that held the rounds at a 45 degree angle, like the back of the follower was much lower then the front. This would reduce OAL of the mags by a bit. Also if you just change the shape of the folower, the spring will still sit flat and not bind up from the angle or something stupid.
basicly the magwell/grip would have to be just the backstrap, mag droppy button, and trigger guard. Then the mag slides in the middle of them.
The feed mechanism would probably need to be special to deal with the tilted rounds but your kinda building it from scratch anyways.
I really want to see at least a concept drawing of this
I would pay so much money for this but with a top-folder stock like a skorpion. Probably a straighter magazine though.
Polymer cased telescope ammunition.
They have had no success with caseless, they've been working on it since before the eighties, bought all the tech from ze germans on their g11 shit sandwich and still can't get it to work three decades later.
There is no caseless in the near future.
If you reload, It's much more awesome
