Maadi-Griffin design. ( now LAR ) It was a 16 inch barrelled toy that shared the same action as their first rifles. Dont think it ever went into production. I once saw a pic of a young girl firing the prototype offhand !

Yup, I've seen that picture too. I believe it was taken in order to prove how good their muzzle brake is. I'd say no thank you anyway.

This pistol was featured in an old, old AR15.com "featured-pic-o-da-week" photo. It showed a guy getting his arms blown off from the recoil and then, below that, a lady shooting it with no problems to show the "minimal" recoil. Funny spoof. I'll see if I can dig it out of my archived pics. Regards, CS

I think I read somewhere that these guns like this were registered as short-barrelled rifles or some such -- voluntarily, to avoid having .50 AP being banned as armor piercing HANDGUN ammo by the ever-opportunistic BATF. No doubt many here will recall what happened to steel-core 7.62x39 after Oly made up a couple pistols to shoot it.
