    Nice post, thanks. I have a Steyr 5 shot LP50 which uses a similar mechanism and is only limited by how fast you can pull the trigger :cool:

    I have no need for this but it looks really fun. Is this a new model? Be cool to see the mechanism it uses.

    I looked into getting a semi auto breech for my edgun a few weeks ago and found no laws against it, there are also already semi auto rifles in the uk (beretta cx storm or something similar)

    Not really seeing the point of this, Your going to be loading mags repeatedly until the novelty wears off, then there's the reliability to consider, more complex always equals more problems!

    What exactly does the ability to waste more lead quicker bring to the table?

    never shot any semi auto's:D then Mike the LP5 and LP50 are reliable enough
    I had the Heanel B96 which is similar to the standard hunting 5 that was fun to shot :shot::shot::shot:
