Charles St George теперь работает на Баррет


изобретатель "центрифугированного ружья" (прототип Dread) теперь работает инженером-консультантом в компании Barrett Firearms в Murfreesboro (Tennessee). Он сказал что над Dread сейчас не работает, но сохранил свои права на разработку и когда появятся деньги - продолжит работу на собственные средства. В планах сделать вариант калибра .30 со скорострельностью более 120.000 выстрелов в минуту.
из других его разработок известны - австралийская винтовка Leader и буллпап ART30, также известный как M17S IBUS.


M17s A.W.S - Rifle of the Millennium
This unique forward trigger/grip, rear chambered, Bullpup rifle features a chrome lined barrel and chamber for long wear. A manganese phosphate outer barrel coating insures protection against corrosion and rust - the same coating applied to all exterior steel parts of the rifle. The lightweight, hard anodized 7075T6 aircraft quality aluminium upper receiver houses an 8 LUG Helical Locking Chrome Steel Bolt System designed to operate with a wide range of ammunition. The cocking lever/upper receiver handle is fitted with a hollow dovetail scope mount base underneath which are blade and notch type iron "field sights". The lower receiver is moulded of rugged impact resistant fibreglass filled nylon, features an ambidextrous magazine release and accepts all M16 type magazines. A last round bolt catch is included and the lower receiver is hinged to the upper with a push pin takedown system for simplicity of maintenance. The Bullpup M17s is shipped with a 30 rd magazine, sling, and instruction manual.
