  • Rocket p[istol ?????

    Question to all the ammunition gurus out there..


    This came up over a beer at the 19 hole.

    Some time in the 1960,s I read an article in Guns and Ammo on a rocket pistol based along the same lines as the old Volcano (1854) pistol, except this was based on an electical fired pistol with caseless ammunition.. Any idea what it was called or any other information???

    I think you're referring to the Gyrojet Pistol. It was a miserable failure.

        Understand completely. And the gyrojet pistol was what happens when engineers go to strip bars.

        Seriously; I am glad I was able to help scratch that itch.

        Cheers!
