would you consider this a pro or a con of a handgun as far as reliability goes? I'm asking this because of the new PX pistol Beretta is developing which will(so far as I know) be lighter than a glock and have a rotating barrel similar to the Cougar(YUCK!).

Rotating barrel? As in rotating like an AR/15 bolt? Isn't that ideal for mounting sound supressors?

interesting. No rotating as in the barrel itself turns using the slide and frame assembly to turn it. Not sure exactly what the effect is suppose to be I'm not too familiar with the design or its purpose.

I've heard that tilting barrels (99.9% semi-auto pistols) hinder the reliability if a supressor is attached. A rotating barrel seems like the answer. A fixed barrel like a .380 would be ideal though.

no wonder I get so much bad info from him. My philosophy has always been that. When in doubt, just go to the chatroom and harrass JAFO til he gives me an answer.

Good pics of another rotating barrel pistol.

Another really weird rotating barrel design.
