Special Purpose Individual Weapons - 1960s (Part 1)
« on: February 05, 2017, 09:42:36 AM »
I don't know anything about the weapons illustrated in these images except what is stated in the captions printed on the back of the prints.  The images were scanned at the National Archives and Records Administration, Archives II, visual records section, at College Park, MD, Record group 111C.

These are apparently images of weapons tested for a "special purpose" and if anyone has any information on these guns please comment.

Very interesting. Puts me in mind of the Johnny Seven I had when I was a kid!

Very interesting.  They look heavy and designed by Walter Mitty.  Thanks for sharing.
