    Belt fed lever action

    Apparently has been created...

    https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/u...agnum-bullpup/

    While there are plenty of Americans who live with oppressive anti-gun laws, in general, most people in the U.S. don’t need to get creative in order to buy and own firearms. That’s not the case in the United Kingdom, where gun ownership and gun culture are pretty heavily oppressed nationwide.

    In the U.K. people have to be excessively willful to own guns, and especially creative to own practical firearms. With a near-total ban on legal semi-automatic guns in private hands, ADF Projects and Designs turned to a lever-action repeating rifle as the start for a number of very creative projects.

    Specifically, ADF looked to the Ruger 96. While most Model 96 rifles were rimfire guns, Ruger also made a number of Model 96-44 rifles chambered for .44 Remington Magnum.

    ADF’s bullpup is based on the Model 96-44 and indeed loads and fires from a belt of big old .44 Magnum cartridges. And of course, .44 Mag is no slouch, on par with many intermediate cartridges out of a rifle-length barrel.




    A+ for thinking creatively and out of the box.

    Bringing his creativity and mechanical genius together to pull it off makes it his own cool toy. A+

    Not my cup of tea though. Looks like the lever is really awkward to function with the vertical pistol grip.

    OK, the lever is cool, but why belt feed?

    Wouldn't a magazine make more sense?

    I think because it was intended for sale in the UK. Apparently, belt fed is okay over there, but not mag fed.

    Makes perfect sense.
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.

    Low speed, THAT's funny!
    Apparently it's okay to add links at your pleasure, whatever length they may have showed to the Gummint.
    You have to wonder if something like this, in a more handy caliber, might not work...especially with some sort of box guide to protect and orient the cartridges.
