Z45 from Royal Armories

Yes, still getting through the guns I explored at the Royal Armories this past summer. Today, I've finished the Z45. For a plain-vanilla post-war tube gun, some interesting stuff really.

Mostly, I also grabbed a WW2 German MP40, and put them side by side. The Z45 is similar, as happens, but simply not a copy. So we can dismiss that commonly held misconception.

I also found out about some of the other odd features it has, like this cool but unique anti-bounce bolt lock:

And, a very odd removable barrel. The barrel shroud does not come off, so it doesn't shorten the gun. This is unprecedented on an SMG as far as I know.

Check it all out over at the Z-45 series page.
