    I found a Gyrojet Carbine, and was wondering what it was like to have fired it. Since the ammo is hard to find, expensive, and 40 years old, I don't think I'll ever be firing it. Has anyone ever fired or handled one? Just curious as to your experiences.

    This is the one I've seen. He wants $950 for it. Too much for me.

    The Gryro-Jet was an experiment to see if small, self-contained rocket projectiles would work as well as conventional cartridges. Needless to say, they did not.

    i cant stop reading up on these things - never knew they existed.

    100 bucks a round is crazy. Check out this article. Even has part of a letter from Ronald Reagan to the guy who invented it asking for more ammo
