    They demoed one of those at the range years ago, fully automatic version. It chewed thru a concrete block wall like it was nothing. Say what you want about the diminutive 22LR but when you stack a couple of hundred nose to tail it causes damage. Oh did I mention almost zero recoil.

    The machine gun version original had a laser & were demoed to prisons. The idea was let the convict see it chew up cider blocks. Thenif they acted up the laser on them would settle them down.

    I think I have heard the American 180 being best described as firing a swarm of really pissed off bees. Full auto .22 is no joke. They even used that gun as a police gun (IIRC, it WAS actually used against a criminal at least once). The minimal recoil and the high rate of fire (1200 rpm) were great selling points for that role.

    I heard 3 of them running full auto @ once @ a shoot. As far as angry bees, that's not a good description of the sound. Think mini gun or MG42 but not as loud.
