  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

This image is definitely more grainy as we had to close the aperture down quite a bit to have enough depth of field just to get the chance of getting a bullet anywhere near the focal zone. Since we wanted a fast shutter and we couldn't make the sun any brighter, we had to bump up the ISO.

Since we don't have any fancy triggering equipment, we had to do it the old fashion blind luck way, so many images are just brass in the air and like a butterfly off in the distance.

The E-510 can take four or five images per second for a few seconds, my buddy can shoot about that fast, so we tried to line things up. We took turns shooting the gun and trying different angles to get a good chance of landing a snapshot just at the right time, so this led to magdumping over 600 rounds and taking 500 pictures. Most of them aren't really any good, but we did catch a few bullets and had fun emptying mags.

The Shadow 2 really did make this kind of "test" enjoyable. That SAO flat trigger is a thing of beauty.

Don't get it if you want a lightweight pistol. It's a beast of a frame with a pretty small slide so recoil is maximum soft. The stock aluminum grip panels make it thin for a double-stack too, so despite the weight it's friendly for the vast majority of hand sizes. I would highly recommend the SAO flat trigger, but if you don't mind DA/SA the Shadow 2 is still obviously fine. Apart from the small slide, all the controls are pretty much spot on. Being more of a blue-collar person I don't mind the small slide at all.

I think it's one of the best choices for a steel 9x19 double stack fullsize SAO in the more range/target flavor without being a full racegun. There are other great choices as well, but the Shadow 2 has a huge aftermarket and is a common firearm so there's plenty of info out there for tuning it up or fixing any issues.

Thanks for the pics and webms PP, they're rad as fuck.

>Tanfoglio Stock 3 over a CZ, so I'll have to compare the two personally before I commit
I personally went with the CZ because it's more common, and seems to have a bit better aftermarket at least where I am. Obviously this is dependent on your personal situation and comparing them side by side is the way to go as the Tanfoglio 3 and the CZ are very similar but not identical.

webm unrelated, just a bit more footage of the shorty SVT-40 in action.

How's the recoil sensation on the shorty?
The full length SVT's recoil is surprisingly mild, but how's the shortening affected the perceived recoil?
>> No. 105718 ID: 19518e
I keep drooling over it.

>How's the recoil sensation on the shorty?
From my experience, all else being equal (apart from a small weight difference), a shorter barrel firearm with a muzzle brake has a bit less recoil. From what I understand, the gas exiting the shorter barrel is at a higher pressure, and therefore flows through the muzzle brake with more energy, exaggerating the muzzle brake's effect.

This actually leaves me to avoid muzzle brakes with ports that divert gas upwards. In the best of cases, I find they actually push the muzzle down too much when a proper shooting stance is employed. The standard SVT-40 has a long barrel and doesn't have an in-line stock. The ports are cut to divert a bit of gas upwards, but the effect is very small. In my opinion the regular barrel length and the muzzle brake angled cuts are well matched to reduce recoil without pushing the barrel down below the target.

However, when the barrel is shortened to 19", the muzzle brake angled cuts do kick the barrel down. The recoil is even more mild than on the regular length barrel from what I can feel, but I've had to modify the ports on the muzzle brake.

Webm here >>102730 shows the shortened SVT-40 before the modifications to the muzzle brake. The webm here >>105690 shows the modified brake as the rifle is now.

tl;dr it's a very short shooting rifle, even more than before.

You need something with a bit more thump, like a light 18.5" barrel 45-70 firing hot loads that make Garrett's warm-loaded lever action boutique ammo sweat. Bullet torque actually becomes lightly noticeable when flirting with this kind of thing.

Just got some 500 gr Hornady DGX bullets for it, they'll be sitting on probably 45 grains of H4198. Last time I had that going the 500s I was trying were chronying 1800. That load provides 47.6 ft-lbs of recoil at 19.9 ft/s to wake up the shooter through an advanced high speed tactical recoil mitigation system called the "steel buttplate".

For reference, a .308 Win. firing a 150gr bullet at 2800ft/s from a rifle of the same weight yields 15.8 ft-lbs at 11.7 ft/s.

File CIMG0590.webm - (2.94MB )
Or just an 8lbs shotgun with a 3.5" chamber.

A few manufacturers make 2 1/4oz turkey loads (984 grains) at 1200ft/s.

Might not look like too much is going on due to my personal enjoyment of such situations, but this does net 70.8ft-lbs at 23.9 ft/s. I've fired more of this ammo than I like to admit.

To compare, a .458 Win Mag from a 9 lbs rifle sending a 500gr bullet at 2100ft/s provides 62.3 ft-lbs at 21.1ft/s of delicious recoil. Close enough for the raifus I go out with.

I bet the muzzle brake helps soften up the Vepr recoil. I went with a 1919 because the stock is in-line with the barrel, you can see here how the muzzle stays relatively tame despite the bare muzzle. It's pretty fun to see those slugs race out past 40 yards too, lookatemgo.

Ignore the xbox scope, it's all I had after the QD mount was kill when recoil made it shit its guts out from under an Aimpoint.

People complain about the .32 ACP (also known as the .32 Automatic, 7.65x17mmSR or 7.65mm Browning Short) as being a diminutive, obsolete round. Kind of like how the .25 ACP (6.35x16mmSR or .25 Auto) fell out of popularity. Both rounds were designed around 1900 for pocket pistols, although the .32 ACP was made for the Czech Skorpion SMG. It got further popularity in mouse guns like the Kel-Tec P-32, but currently pocket pistols are being made in 9x19mm Parabellum and that's far more popular than the .32 ACP.

To be fair these are rare in the worst of cases and really only happen with dubious ammo. I think it would be best to immediately clear a malfunction normally and if you're using ammo that could be weird, make a note to let the malfunction sit for a second as an exception.

Doooood. Way to go with ALL the auto-revolvers. So it looks like they Webley has a shitton of muzzle flip.

Do you think there's any merit to the idea? Or is there just no point in a world of semi-autos?

thx bois

Honestly, I have a lot to learn when it comes to recoil management. Despite this, I feel that it's very soft shooting and the trigger is incredibly light and crisp. The most fun I have is handing either of them to people and watching them get confused trying to recock the hammer after the first shot.

I think they're wonderful and novel designs especially if you're already used to using speedloaders, but yeah, they're definitely outclassed by autoloading pistols in current year and would probably be really expensive to produce. That said, I heard Mateba is starting production of the 6 Unicas again and have secured an importer in the US though I don't know who the importer is.

Another unusual auto-revolver is the Norwegian Landstad
The Landstad revolver was an automatic revolver of Norwegian origin. The weapon had an unusual feeding device that used both a 2 round cylinder and a grip inserted magazine.
It was chambered for the 7.5mm Nagant cartridge, which at the time of the creation of the Landstad was also used in the Swedish Mod. 1887 and Norwegian Mod. 1893 Nagant revolvers.
The revolver design was patented in 1899 by Halvard Landstad, from Kristiana (now known as Oslo). Landstad designed the revolver with his own money and presented it to military trials in 1901. The gun never went into production because the revolver failed in the trials, but the inventor kept a prototype of the gun. It was donated to the British NRA after the inventor's death in 1955. In 1977 the revolver was sold in an auction.

Landstad 1900 Automatic Revolver https://www.forgottenweapons.com/landstad-1900-automatic-revolver/
We spent a bunch of time earlier this week covering the Webley-Fosbery “automatic revolver”, and I would like to close out the week with another pistol of that type, but one that’s even weirder than the Fosbery. I don’t have much information on this piece, but did find some surprisingly good photos that were originally in a Norwegian magazine. Pretty much everything I know about it comes from the captions in the pictures, which you’ll see if you read Norwegian or translate them.

Anyway, this is a design patented in 1899 by a fellow named Halvard Landstad, who lived in Kristiana (now called Oslo) at the time. He designed the gun on his own dime, and presented it to military trials in 1901, which it failed miserably.

What makes this design really unusual is that it uses both a revolving cylinder and a box magazine (a bit like a Dardick, actually). The magazine – which doubled as the left grip panel – held six rounds of 7.5mm Nagant ammunition (a common caliber in that time and place). The top rear of the action contains a slide that comes back with each shot:

File 155744560898.jpg - (38.93KB , 462x324 , pistol Norwegian Landstad cylinder mid-rotation 1.jpg )
More unusually, the cylinder was actually flat, with only two chambers:

Pic - Landstad cylinder mid-rotation. Note how it is flat, with only two chambers.

The firing cycle went like this: a round from the magazine would be loaded into the bottom chamber of the cylinder. Pulling the trigger would rotate the cylinder (like a DA revolver), moving the round up to the top, in line with the barrel. The hammer would fall, fire the round, and the recoil energy would cycle the slide assembly at the top rear, extracting and ejecting the empty case.

I’m unsure on a few points, like whether it could be fired single-action as well, and how the mechanism controlled loading of cartridges from the mag into the cylinder. Here are some photos of the Landstad disassembled:

File 155744571767.jpg - (105.90KB , 905x591 , pistol Norwegian Landstad auto-revolver 1900 in 7_.jpg )
The gun never went into production, because of its dismal performance in trials. But it appears that the inventor kept the prototype gun, and brought it with him when he emigrated to the UK, living in Middlesex until his death in 1955. It was donated to the British NRA and kept in their museum at Bisley until 1977, when it was sold at auction.

The Landstad 1900 differs fundamentally from the more commonly known auto-revolvers like the Webley-Fosbery and Mateba in that it actually ejects cases when empty. The other guns are more accurately described as “self-cocking revolvers”, since they must be loaded and unloaded just like typical revolvers. Not a tremendously important distinction, but a valid one all the same.

Landstad 1900 Autorevolver Disassembly: You may recall seeing my post about the Landstad model 1900 semiauto revolver a while back…
Well, the gun (only one was ever made) was in a British collections for a hundred years, but recently was purchased by a Norwegian collector, and has now returned to its homeland. Thanks to Lars, a reader who happens to be a Norwegian gunsmith, we have a series of photos showing disassembly of this unique firearm. Thanks, Lars! https://www.forgottenweapons.com/landstad-1900-autorevolver-disassembly/

Eon: The Landstad loading system from magazine to “cylinder” closely resembles the British Needham rifle patent, circa 1868. (Not to be confused with the Needham conversion breechloader Ian covered here a while back.)
It fed its “two-chambered” cylinder from a Winchester-type tubular magazine under the barrel, was worked by a lever-action similar to a Bullard, and used cartridges very like the Colt Thuer conversion revolvers, which were fed in from the front and ejected out the front as well.
The Landstad reverses this procedure, because obviously there’s no room for a tubular magazine out front due to the gas piston assembly, and the rimmed Nagant revolver round had to be fed from the rear anyway.
There were also four-shot “Bar” pistols, manually operated, with double over-under barrels that had a cylinder setup like this. Most of them were in .22, .25 ACP, or even .32.
All of which goes back to the old saying, “In engineering, if nobody does it ‘that way’, there’s usually a very good reason.”

I'm jealous! Would love to have a Webley–Fosbery Self-Cocking Automatic Revolver (aka the Zardoz Zapper).
Fun watching those .455 slugs travel so... slowly down range to the targets. The .455 Webley has such a heavy solid lead bullet (265 grain or 17.2 g) traveling at such relatively low velocity of 650 ft/s (190 m/s), backed with enough burning cordite to bring down even the fiercest Fuzzy-Wuzzy.

Another interesting Webley accessory is the Pritchard-Greener bayonet (this one made about 1916).
The designer of this bayonet was Captain Arthur Pritchard born in 1898 he enlisted into the Royal Berkshire regiment in early 1915. He returned to Britain in 1916, and approached Wilkinson Sword, with the idea for a bayonet for the Webley Mark VI service revolver. His idea was to create a small bayonet, made from the tip of the 1897 Infantry Officer's sword. The problem Wilkinson Sword had at that time was that it was already producing the 1907 bayonet for the SMLE rifle as well as the 1908 Cavalry Trooper's sword. It was seen as quite impractical for them to cut down existing swords not to mention the cost of labour involved in assembling these bayonets. Pritchard's idea was too difficult for them to achieve at this time.

Pritchard's bayonet instead was produced at Greener's, a rival of Wilkinson Sword. Much of their business was reconditioning obsolete weapons. The company had a surplus amount of Model 1874 Gras bayonets, which were used in place of the 1897 sword tip. Although the manufacture of the bayonet was labour intensive the cost was cut by recycling the Gras bayonets. Two patterns of this bayonet were produced, the common gunmetal hilted version and the rarer steel hilted version. Both of the same form, it is likely that change to gunmetal might have been for economic reasons rather than practical reasons. https://collections.royalarmouries.org/first-world-war/type/rac-narrative-138.html

The Pritchard-Greener bayonet was never a standard issue of the British Army. It could be purchased privately, by officers and would probably have been a useful addition to trench raiders, to use in close-quarter combat. Few were made and no evidence exists to prove they were used in the trenches. However, one can imagine the psychological boost it would have provided men leaping into enemy trenches from No-Man's Land. It would also have served as a potentially useful backup weapon, if the revolver misfired or ran out of ammunition.
