i remember as a kid seeing in a book a gun that was made to shoot around corners. the barrel was bent 90 degrees to the side, the idea was for prison guards & law enforcement i thought. weird concept that never really took off. that too was from the 40's or 50's era i think

EDIT:

after doin a couple quick searches, it seems that it was a version of the M3 "grease gun" that i saw as a child.

and then i stumbled across this: http://youtu.be/3RaubAtWZQM

There is a revovler in 7.62x39....

Phillips & Rogers, Inc. was best known for the Medusa revolver.

As can be clearly seen from the markings on the revolver in the image below, P&R Inc. also produced (or at least converted/customized) a 7.62x39mm revolver. SecurityArms.com shows it only as "Revolver 7.62x39mm -- One of a Kind".

I believe there was an AK-47 that did the same thing. I remember seeing it on the History Channel, supposedly the barrels wore out very quickly.

I've heard of these too. I think even the nazis came up a rifle that could do this too during ww2 They are cool weapons though. I wonder how good their accuracy is.

huh, you know kinda in this same vein of idea....is there such a thing as a "long range" shotgun? i mean like something that will put an effective group of shot out to say 200 yards or so. I'm thinkin that would be ideal for prairie dog huntin

I saw something like this in an old western movie. A guy shot another guy with a shotgun from 100 plus yards (don't think it was a slug) and afterwards the guy that had been shot asked what was in the shotgun. He never got an answer so I'm not sure what he shot him with. So a gun like that may exist.

I don't believe that any shotgun could keep a grouping at 200 yards. It wouldn't have anything to do with the gun, but with the round itself. Maybe a hollowed projectile filled with bb's, but that would only expand upon impact. It would still do a considerable amount of damage.

after diggin around to find more info on the webley revolvers, i came across this, i think this would fall into what C3 was sayin about crazy sh*t they did a hundred years ago:

Webley-Fosbery

it's a semi automatic revolver! it sounds like a neat idea but i guess i just can't see any benefits it would have over a semi-auto pistol as we know it now. maybe back then the selling point was it wouldn't jam?
