Hah! Thanks! I have been looking for this gun for a long time and could not recall the name.

I know nothing about its use anymore, sure would be a fun weapon to try...

Wild!

I've only heard stories of these weapons, never actually believed they were real because they sounded so wacky, but DAYM! They are real! Thanks for posting pics!

The good point is it provides the Soldier the firepower of three riflemen. Id improve this weapon by rebarreling it to either .30 carbine/5.56/5.7 P90 or the new 4.7mm MP7 round. Id make a belt fed variant if possible

This 'Nordenfelt gun' would be ideal for SF squads/Security forces or Urban Warfare situations.

Why 30 Carbine? Thats a way less effective round than the 7.62 x39. Remember, three times the shit than can go wrong as well. The old Gardner and Nordenfeldt guns didn't work for a multitude of reasons. One being that they were overly complicated and hence lost in every single competition to a single barreled Maxim or Hotchkiss.


Cool....yes.......practical.......nope.

yeah but i bet many modern rifles with a single barren exceed the fire rate of all three of those barrels. furthermore the added weight would be a large deterrent, but Adler has the key point pinned, and thats reliability.

it's not ROF that's important, it's rounds/recoil that makes that trigun effective.

but like adler said, 3x as many parts to mess up, but since it's an AK underneath (probably anyway) you'd still be fine ;)

I know the 7.62x39 is a better round but using these new PDW rounds would be better for the magazine capacity. This rifle would provide minigun/ish type firepower but suitable for a person to handle the recoil force, The point of 3 barrels, when one reloads, the other/s fire stimulating the ROF and handling barrel heating/erosion. Although a cool weapon, I still see a purpose in it rather than vanity.

The other variant of the Pribor-3B was to ease production by using AKM parts.

If it is true that this is the soviet's response to a project similar to our SALVO then the 3 barrels are not being used in a gatling multibarrel arangement. It is true that that type of setup is to keep a high ROF w/o each barrel erroding/melting. a small arm (one held/carried by a man) would have no advantage to this UNLESS all 3 shots could be fired during one recoil stroke. That means it would either have to be a 3 shot simultaneous pepper box, or something more exotic like the G11's 3 shot burst or the AN-94's two shot burst.

We all know how Project SALVO turned out. They worked on it for about 25-26 years with no practical design. The M14 was originally supposed to be a temporary fix until the SPIW just died in the water. Makes sense that any Ruskie attempt would die a similar fate.

the best part of these tales is that 80% of the desired 100% hit increase was accomplished with only a forward pistol grip :)
