    Smile Info on USFA Zip Gun?

    http://www.guns.com/wp-content/uploa...3/04/zip-6.jpg Have been wondering about these, but I like the weird/strange and unusual and these go for about $155.

    From all reports the early ones last yr. were Jam-o-matics however the new improved ones are better supposedly according to the Company.

    The only thing I hate worse than a gun that doesnt work is 2 guns that don't work!

    Thank's

    From their website: "ZiP™ delivers a long sought after vision of “X-box” gamers and advanced weapon enthusiasts not possible until now."

    That line made me laugh. Then it made me sad...very, very sad.

    What's to wonder? It's the stupidest gun of all time, and is evidence of the complete nutcase owner who gave up making exceptional SAA clones to build his true dream, this POS. One of the saddest stories in the gun world, IMO.

    I agree from all vids and reviews the early ones are junk however I have not found any reviews on the "NEW" ones and since it will also take the Ruger Bx 25 mags one can also attach it as a pistol grip on an AK/AR rifle or any type pistol but U need a SBR or a AOW stamp when attached.

    So I was thinking in a SHTF situation when fighting Z's and my 100 round drum in my AR or AK pistol ran out then one can simply keep shooing 25 more rounds of ammo so if they have/get the probs worked out I shall get one.

    Thank You

    Would be interesting if the reliability is improved, I didn't find any recent reviews.

    It does sound interesting although

    Yea I seen them and many more, but those are all from last yr and maybe they improved them or fixed them?

    Many times new guns are released to early but 1 or 2 yrs. later they get fixed 100% like the Keltec PMR 30!

    With transfer I can get 1 for $190. however last yr. many folks could not even get the company to respond to their warranty on these so I don't know, but an extra 25 rounds coming out of my pistol grip is fascinating and U can shoot both guns at same time.
