I saw this on consumptionjunction.com and figured someone here could educate me.




What is it? What does it shoot? Where and when would it mostly be likely used?

Thank you.

Looks like one of those Finnish 20mm Lahtis they used to sell at gun shows in the 80s.

If I recall correctly I saw this on tails of the gun or American Shooter or something..It was the worlds largest rifle intended to be shot by a single person. Anti-tank rifle in WWII or something...

Don't hold me to this...

How does a 20 mm compare to a .50 BMG?

I believe 50 caliber equals out to 12.7mm or thereabouts.

Right, I understand its bigger in diameter, but I was asking in terms of effectiveness. More of a qualitative judgment.

Perhaps bigger is better.

Just busting your chopps... Last time I looked it was about $40 a round when you could find them. You have to reload on this monster. Power wise it is about double that of the .50 cal.
Like some one once said "You can shoot through schools with this."

Ma Deuce is a wuss compared to Good Ole Lahti 20 Mike Mike!

Friend of mine told his father was lucky (?) enough to shoot that thing when he was in army but he wasn´t man enough to finish one magazine (5 rounds).

Isn't that the gun that Bruce Willis used in the Jackal?

If I had that, I would drag it into the gun shop and ask them if they had a case that would fit my rifle.

I've seen a guy shoot his regularly at a MG shoot here in PA...

All I can say is, they are not "spectator friendly"...

It makes a .50BMG sound like a firecracker...

Damn...I KNEW I was missing something.

*reminds self to buy two for bug-out cabin*

Should go nice with my .50s.

With double-protection, it'd be like firing a .223 with only muffs.

Seriously, you can stand a few feet away from a 120mm when it's fired if you have double. Your stomache, ears, eyes, nose, and general health would be a little off due to the pressure of such a round being fired, but you wouldn't be deaf.
