So I was wondering, is there any gun that can fire without a hammer or firing pin?
Striker fired ones...
How does it work
Strikers are considered as firing pins
For conventional ammunition, there has to be something that strikes the primer. I don't see how it would work otherwise.
For non-coventional ammunition... rail gun.
Remington made a few electrical fired guns based on the 700 don't remember the name. Daisy had those V22 caseless ammo .22's, I don't know if they had a firing pin. There was the Gyrojet rifles and pistols that had no firing pin. Muzzle loaders have no firing pin.
But they still have hammers.
Daisy VL--no firing pin. Jet of hot air.
A whole bunch of electrically primed stuff out there, but nothing
currently in small arms that I know of.
The Gyro-jet had both a hammer and firing pin. The hammer hit the nose
of the cartridge and drove it back against a fixed firing pin.
Werent we just talking 'bout this.. Ill just steal one of Robo's posts..
Unless its a Norinco, in which case theres a little Chinese guy with a hammer and a nail.....
Lol that's funny trez
If you study some history, you will learn about the matchlock-
There WAS a crude shotgun, made by Philipine Resistance members during Japanese occupation, known as a Paltik Gun (Cigarette gun) what was a muzzle loader, used a cigarette, and a slamfire shotgun- fixed firing pin, no hammer- you slid barel back to ram shell onto firing pin. There was at least one commercially made gun in that style. Think little pipe (holds shell) slliding inside big pipe (holds firing pin)
EEEEEK. Thank god for modern technology. What would they think of an AR...
Sum have TOO much thinking time
