Cordless drill powered machine gun


Google translate recognized the language as Finnish, and provided the following translation:

80 years old hameenlinnalaisinsinoori (persons last name I assume) developed a machine-drilled machine gun fire, the firing rate of 420 rounds per minute. Agree to the gun 22 caliber charges.

In comparison, the M4 carbine has a rate of fire of 700-950 rounds per minute. (source – wiki)

My guess is that since it’s in a news paper he got busted, and this is considered illegal in Finland.

Very resourceful guy!  It looks like it would be fairly comfortable to shoot too.

If anyone has any more information about this please comment!

UPDATE: Steve at TheFirearmblog had a post about this a while back, where some new information was provided in the comments.

  1. With regard to the long Finnish word in the newspaper headline (Hämeenlinnalaisensinööri), it is not someone’s last name. It means “Hämeenlinna senior.” The 80 year old is from the city of Hämeenlinna, which translates as Häme Castle.

  2. “Insinööri” means engineer, not senior. This guy was 80 years old engineer from Hämeenlinna (Häme’s castle).
