some more interesting guns coming up for auction....

The Gyrojet Mark I.

Produced from 1962 to 1970, the Gyrojet used a 13mm spin stablized solid fuel rocket for ammunition. Because the ammo was a small rocket, there is very little recoil (unlike normal ammunition where all of the kinetic energy is released at once).

Like a rocket, velocity when leaving the barrel was low, but increased as the micro rocket continued it's flight. At peak it reaches 1,250 feet per second.

Long out of production, ammo is very expensive now -- over $100/round.

Auction estimate is $2500-$3500
