USMA2010I did a quick google search of "M/39B". This is what I got:

MOP is getting a good deal from his goverement that is for sure. Who knows if they give those things away I may move to sweden:p.

I would not mind having an bb gun. You can get how many bb's for $10? All I would want to do with it shoot targets. Shame my parents won't let me have one. My mom thinks I would shoot some animals with it.

BBs are fired from a smooth bore, compressed air firearm (if you can call it that). They are terribly inaccurate, and thus terrible for target practice.

Mr. Pe, how old are you if your mommy won't let you buy something?

Nice one ;).

But MoP could be right. The Swedish m/39B ammo is much more powerful than the standard U.S. 9mm ball ammo. They use it for their Pistol 88 (a Glock 17), one of the few 9mm weapons that can handle this special ammo.

The U.S. army planned to purchase this ammo as an alternative for the 9mm ammo as well, but the m/39B is classifed as an armor piercing bullet. So it is a potential "cop killer bullet".

The m/39B was designed for use in the Swedish Kulsprutepistol m/45 SMG. This ammo has a thicker jacket with a harder core and it travels at a higher velocity than a standard 9 mm bullet. It can also penetrate a standard flak vest while a .45 ACP most likely can not.

My old Crossman pellet gun had a rifled bore and was pretty fun for shooting Hotwheels from a decent distance:) I is a good shot.

Pete? You are like 18 years old right? Why again can't you have a BB/pellet gun? http://www.airgunsbbguns.com/Gamo_Hunter_220_Air_Rifle_p/gmo611009854.htm (not Crossman but nice ones)

Oh I miss that baby.

Indeed right you are. And I can remember my military sevice when I shot with this weapon and the ammo you talking about. It feelt like it could go through everything. My LT refered it as "the cop killer".

I'm very impressed ;). I didn't know the yanks were interested in it. The M/45 (used by the Navy SEALs in 'nam) isn't in service anymore so the crown is lightening some on their old "state of alert" storages from the cold war by giving away free (but old) m/39B to pistol clubs. The ones I fired with that CZ 85 Combat was from 1953 :lol:.

Some more info:

Valued TGZ contributor Daniel Watters, whose knowledge of small arms and munitions is encyclopedic, writes: There is reportedly no visible external difference between the Bofors 9mm HP (a/k/a: M39B) and normal hardball. The primary difference is in the thickness of the jacket, which is made from steel (with a gilded metal coating). The core is a basic lead/antimony mix. That is pretty amazing when you consider Bofors' performance claims: 50 layers of Kevlar at 50 meters. (However, I suspect that this load may no longer be a Saab-Bofors product as most of their ammo manufacturing concerns were transferred to Nammo. Nammo is also the home of Lapua and Raufoss.) Saab-Bofors has in recent years played with an aluminum-cased 6.5 x 25mm cartridge which fits into a 9 x 19mm-length platform, specifically their CBJ-MS Personal Defense Weapon. The 6.5 x 25mm cartridge launches a saboted 31-grain 4mm projectile made of tungsten carbide. However, the weapon was intended to offer the option of exchanging barrels to 9 x 19mm for cheaper practice. http://www.thegunzone.com/aguila-iq.html

I still live at home. Free food, free rent, don't have to work:p. If that means I can't have a gun(she worked in a hospital in the 80's and saw a ton of gunshot wounds) or a motorcycle(same thing but with motocylce accidents) then that is fine for now. Once I am out of the house it is beer, motorcycle(the little ones get great gas milage) and women:p.

My friend had a bb gun. Fun thing to shoot and it was accurate. Shame the plastic stock broke:(.
