Gun P0rn: Now I've seen it all edition

A Dutch Madsen short barrel Light Machine Gun. . . . . . . . with a forward grip (scroll down)!!! More here if you want to see how real SWAT operators fire a Madsen: with eyes closed, no cheekweld, and stock under the arm pit!

Expert badge for that one!!!!!!

There is an 80+ year span in firearms development in this one single post on this thread about the war in Brazil. There are weapons there that I don't even have time right now to identify. I get a kick out of seeing the Bushnell 3200 fixed 10X scopes used on M16s, FALs, and beat to hell, wooden stocked bolt action rifles! Awesome!

Also, seeing pepper-haired Klauseus Schteinmunfuertez with a 10" AR15 sporting a ginormous Counter Sniper scope with an EOTech tacked to the side gives me the screaming giggles. Is he wearing the MP3 player Oakleys?!?!?

Oh man! There's an AK type rifle with an upside down stock, a guy casually taking pictures of some poor fella who just got cut down by gunfire, a bare-chested balaclava'ed drug dealer totin' a SIG 551/552 hybrid, and my personal fav, the one guy on a mounted machine gun of some kind cowered down in terror while his buddy gets some with the Right Arm of the Free World!!

I can't stop giggling!

Go check this one out folks; you don't want to miss it!

excellent, unconventional stuff from the master of interesting gun-centric blogs! yes! I think when I get a dog I'll name it Klauseus Schteinmunfuertez, or Klauschtein for short!

You have to say it with that 'hawhking' sound like the Deutch folk!

I just have to vent.

I keep seething about the black hoe inducing stupidity of the comments by the Gucci Airsoft Commando people who simply CANNOT wrap their heads around the idea that, in the very specific role the Brazilian cops are using it the Madsens are as good or better than anything "modern", and they are already paid for -- so why replace them with shit that probably won't work as well for what the cops want?

BOPE wants a full power .30 LMG that is handy enough for indoor use, they don't have to hump it across hill and dale for the next week or so, and they don't anticipate having to rely on IT for long term suppressive fire. (I suspect the cops with the belt fed HK and FN GPMGs and the soldiers in the ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIERS with .50 M2HBs might just possibly, be able to provide the overwatch fire if required. If they're really lucky and eat their Wheaties. {snark off} ).

As a gun that only has to be humped from the SWAT van to the firefight and back again, and is basically being used as a doorknocker that can play room broom PDW at need, a Madsen is a great choice.

Short, handy, reliable as an axe. Sure, it weighs a metric butt-tonne, but that and the lower ROF just make it more controllable when counseling "Javier the Candyman" about the hazards of violently resisting the po-po.

They didn't stop making Madsen LMGs becuase they were crap -- they stopped making them because they were heavy and expensive. Neither of which applies in the SLIGHTEST in the case at hand.

That should read "black hole"

Oh, no doubts that the Madsen works for the task at hand; I wouldn't want to be on the business end of one, and it looks to be quite compact. I just got the giggles seeing a bicycle handle duct taped to one, and you have to confess getting at least a smile as a cop on a tactical unit is seen shooting one with his eyes closed.
