The Studies and Observations Group (SOG) of the U.S. Military in Vietnam in 1967 saw an opportunity to try out one of SOG's new "toys," a revolutionary rocket pistol called a Gyrojet. In one test, a rocket round punched through an old truck door and into a water-filled 55-gallon drum, almost exiting its opposite side. SOG men also test-fired it through sandbag walls and even tree trunks.
Ah the famous Gyrojet... I have had several chance to buy one.... but they are un-shootable. Great cameo in a Bond film... You Only Live Twice, IIRC.
Yep. Last check on the status of supply and market value of the Gyrojets and all it's accoutrements, the civvie-legal Mark II .49 caliber rockets run around several hundred dollars per round. The carbines, and ESPECIALLY the assault rifle variant with the carrying handle will run up to $60,000. A lot more Mark II model pistols were made. These were built for sale on the commercial market while the few .51 caliber Mark I's were submitted as test prototypes to the US Army. There was also the even more rare Lancejet, a flechette rifle.Ah the famous Gyrojet... I have had several chance to buy one.... but they are un-shootable. Great cameo in a Bond film...

Also always thought that a Dardick would be fun... but finding Trounds is impossible. Noone makes Triangular boolits, either.
