Hi y'all, not much on intros. I have had this arm pistol for about 15 years now. I had to make some missing parts and fix some oddball problems, but now it eats every thing I put in it. Even though its just a novelty, not that comfortable to shoot ( sharp corners ), a joke for sights ( it flips right or left ), it is still fun from the hip and gets lots of oohs and aahs at shoots. I don't know a lot about them. How many were made? What changes were made through production? What was the target market? Thanks in advance for your comments.

Currently, I am offering for sale a registered selectfire version of the Armpistol. Quite entertaining on fullauto!!

Google up Bushmaster as there are a variety of sites dedicated to Gwinn Arms and Bushmaster Arms and plenty of info on the Armpistol. 
No need to regurgitate it all here......

Yeah, yer right. Just thought I would start a conversation in a topic with light traffic. I'm no smith or expert but I like the way they put it together. Recoil spring over op rod/gas piston, ejects through the slide, both similar to the BAR. Urethane buffer, pull rod trigger link. All really shop built looking for a production gun. Do you have a picture of the one you're selling? I'm not interested as a buyer, just wanted a look at it. Thanks

It looks like a bullpup style. Do you fire it from your shoulder or arm?

Hi Timkel, you hold it by the pistol grip and it lays on your forearm almost to the inside of your elbow. In this position it is hard to line up the sights unless you hold your arm straight out in front of you. But it has a natural point and shoot, with your arm at your side and your forearm straight out from the hip. Recoil is very mild as it is milled from solid stainless steel. It can be shot right or left handed as the upper receiver pivots on the lower (pistol grip). It ejects from the top so you need to tell your friends to back up as empties come out at a low angle from your shooting position. All in all a blast to shoot but would be a challenge to win most accurate with. It is very different than the short barreled rifle, no stock pistols you see today. Thanks for asking.
