Interesting concept - nothing new to add except while explaining the properties of this magic/miracle fabric (akin to silk but stronger than Kevlar) how do you get around the law of physics ?

For every action - equal n opposite reaction. While bullets may not penetrate a modern vest, if it takes more than 3" to stop it - the internal damage is fatal. No hole in the body but your just as dead.

You might want to read up on the laminate armor of the Spartans which was very impact resistant. It's not like mankind hasn't been working on this concept for awhile.

SF Genre:
The Dune series took shield tech to new heights which eliminated projectile weapons in their history. As Im sure your finding out, an original idea is hard to come by...

Get creative and have some fun !

Invent a sharp pointed bullet with screw threads. Give a whole new meaning the term screwed.

actually, "push" or pull springs can propel darts that use today's screw on, or yesterdays glue on arrow heads. :-) I know this for a FACT. you used steel tubing as a "barrel", of course. It is possible to make them feed from a mag, be accurate on men to 25m or so, and to make the "gun" rapidfire, as in a shot every 1/2 second. Until I get the patent, that is all I will say.

On topic though, what were firearms like in the early 1960s in terms of round capacity, reloading speed, accuracy and penetrative power?
In the 60's, we had AR-15's, ak's, lots of stuff, we had 30 round mags just like we do now, AR's and ak's have not really changed too much in terms of basic operation so speed of reloading and accuracy would be the same as now basically

I wish I could have had a 30 rd magazine for my M16 in Vietnam in 67/68.
Got tired of carrying 22 - 20 rd mags.

Just to. Correct a statement made earlier the Ak-47(1947) had a 50 round mag not a 30 round mag the AR-15 came from the factory with a 30 rd mag and that is still pretty standard

Probably not many because they couldn't import things from commie countries

Good point it wasn't until like 1990 that you could import an AK then the clinton gun ban came along and stopped that for 10 years...alot of ak's did make it to the states as "war suviniers" in the hands of American troops coming ack from Nam and Korea
