I have not fired the Rattler, but it certainly fits in the PDW category. I'd like to fire one in an enclosed space, and see the effects on the shooter. I have a 9" 300 BLK SBR that I am quite happy with...

John Wayne had a Mac-10. Enough said.

Not to nit-pick, but they were Micro's. Similar but different. 3 types of Uzi, "Micro-Mini-Full Size".

On the plus side, you've reminded me that I need to take a look around for a DeSantis Mini Uzi rig, so thanks!

Allowable, as long as you run around, wielding the mini-Uzis akimbo, frequently pausing for profile shots at "Charlie's Angels High Ready" position.

Can't do it. The rig for the Mini is similar to the full size one, just made for carrying the one gun strong side and a dual magazine pouch off side. The only dual rig was the Micro, because in that setup they were full auto Micro "pistols" without stocks attached. The Mini and micro have a side folding stock much different than the standard one.

You're welcome. How is it to shoot using that set up?

Back to watching Invasion USA.

Holy crap. I'd completely forgotten about those cards, until just now.

Good find.

Speak of the devil and he shall appear.......

MAC just posted an ~hour long video regarding the Rattler. Looks very interesting. Lots of data points and comparisons to other similar weapons for people that like to get that info.

There is an article, published by the "Army Times;" which, I can't seem to attach. The article is titled, "Interesting Army purchase of Sig Sauer Weapons.."

Interesting article

Good shooting

My range, that I can shoot on w/"props", has been temporarily closed for mods.


Understanding the county; probably, next month

Good shooting.

I guess the source doesn’t pass muster with a filter...

If it's a Military Times company, we don't link to them here.

Sure, the Army has a PDW program...or maybe they don't...oh, they do again...or not...when it comes to the Army and weapons procurement, don't bother trying to keep up with the latest stories out there. All of the money and press spent on the subject in the last, oh, forever...has led to a new Sig that is barely starting to be issued, and the discovery that most of our M4s had shitty spec'd parts.

22 TCM

Doing some research after rereading through this thread, what about 22 TCM for a PDW(ish) weapon? The biggest hurdle being it isn't a SAAMI approved cartridge, that I could find anyway. The big advantage to the round being, it's parent case is the .223. Giving it the potential to be the next .300 BLK? Being that the case is a bit shorter than the 5.7, a potential PWD could utilize the same magwell/pistol grip combo as the MP7. Making it small-man-hands user-friendly. President Trump and I can finally get into the PWD game..

Anyone have experience with it?
