***UPDATE*** This is a one-off, no more will be manufactured!
This is me shooting a modern production M41-A ARMAT assault rifle made by a local company. On the movie ALIENS it was used by the USCM "United States Colonial Marines". The specs are that is was a 10mm caseless machinegun with a 30mm grenade launcher on the bottom. This is a one off copy of the movie gun, made so it is an actual firearm and not a prop.
The M41-A was also the weapon Ripley "Sigourney Weaver" lit up the Aliens and facegrabbers on the movie it has a real working model 870 short barreled shotgun and used a Thompson smg for the automatic fire.The Thompson used the smaller 20 and 30 round mags.
The manufacturer of this cool as heck set-up is Lage Manufacturing. I do realize a lot of you already knew this.
Please do not swamp Lage Manufacturing with e-mails. He has his MAX-10/9, MAX-10/45, and MAX/22 systems already taking a lot of his time. More e-mails will just slow things down. If you guys post questions, I will answer them. If I don't know the answers, I will compile just one larger e-mail to send or just talk to the manufacturer at the range the next time I see him.
For this set-up, it is utilizing an M-11/9 SWD smg, and an 870 AOW/ SBR.
With this particular firearm, it is a 9mm design, and it utilizes the Suomi coffin magazines that have a capacity of 50 rounds.
Yes, the round counter does work!
The recoil and climb is non-existent, and the set-up is a real pleasure to shoot. The optics and round counter turn on with the insertion of the magazine! It has a red dot sight and it is dialed in perfectly. The manufacturer is testing the design to see if he will offer it to the public. All NFA rules apply, and it is not inexpensive I will tell you that now. The gun is real, not a toy.
It is made to take the constant pounding of machinegun and shotgun fire unlike the prop which was designed just to hold up to blank fire.
