    yeah, i was looking around on the web and i found an odd invention that was used in WW2 called the Krummerlauf. It was a curved barrel and periscope arrangement that attached to the end of the Stg 44 barrel for shooting around corners, It was used around 300 times before it was worn out but i thought it was pretty cool. I didn't know a bullet could be shot out of curved barrel becouse it would mutalate the bullet making it inacurate or whatever but i guess they found a way.

    It probably does affect the accuracy, but spray n' pray sounds good when you get to stay behind a cement wall.

    I remember seeing some other stuff on that weapon and it did seriously hurt the accuracy and range of the rifle, which is why it didn't get used much.
