Did I say that the guy was German? He is, actually, and that's an amazingly helpful coincidence that you provided the German term :)

What type of action would this gun be?

Hey, not entirely sure if this is the right area to ask this, but it's the closest I could find.

Anyway, this is fiction, so I'm just looking...

Suggestions for names of guns?

Yeah, I'm currently brainstorming ideas for a variety of weapons similar to firearms that will be featured in a book I'm writing. They fire spinning razor discs rather than bullets, and the diameter...
