The Rarest Firearms in the World
You might remember this as a powerful weapon from a few of your video games. Truth is that only one Pancor Jackhammer exists in the entire world. Designed back in 1984, the 12-gauge automatic shotgun is operated by gas. Interestingly, Pancor Jackhammer has made quite a few appearances in video games, television shows and action movies, thanks to its futuristic look.
These Soviet bullpup assault rifles are among the rarest firearms in the world. As a pre-production prototype, there were only a couple of these developed by German A. Korobov. These gas operated firearms never really left the factory. Since they could not progress to the stage of production, they now sit in the factory museum at present.
You may have caught glimpse of this rare pistol in documentaries or clips demonstrating scenes from the second World War. There is no doubt that this is one of the rarest firearms in the world. Manufactured during World War II by the U.S. military, this weapon was not issued to the American troops but only offered for use by resistance forces. Most of the FP-45 pistols were either lost or disposed of during combat.
Rod Bayonet 1903 Springfield
This rifle was distributed back in 1903 but the cartridge for 1903 Springfield never came out until 1906. Prior to the cartridge’s release, the gun was chambered with .30-03 Army. President of the USA, Teddy Roosevelt mulled the invention of a ramrod bayonet which is why the rod bayonet on the gun was short-lived. Word is that a maximum of 100 of these rifles survived in good condition and would sell for no less than $50,000 a piece.
