Washington, DC-based Transformational Defense Industries (TDI) is marketing a new recoil-less .45 ACP submachine gun. Eliminating recoil, and consequent muzzle climb, will markedly improve rapid-fire accuracy. The video (linked below) seems to imply that there is also a positive impact on velocity and penetration. One of the key reasons for many police forces choosing the 9mm Parabellum over the .45 ACP is the comparative inferiority of the latter, more potent round in penetrating automobile bodywork. In the video, .45 ACP bullets go right through a car door and also fully penetrate the ballistic-test dummy.
According to the press release, the company’s Super V action is also being adapted the 12 gauge shotgun round.
US civilians, of course, are effectively precluded by the National Firearms Act of 1934 from owning fully automatic weapons.
