The Swiss Mini Gun Facts You Should Know

Swiss Mini Guns are not importable into the US. Swiss Mini Guns are certainly defined as a weapon. Incredibly, the Swiss Mini Gun is on the same level, in some regards, as a machine gun!

The Swiss Mini Gun is no toy! Only those legally entitled to carry any sort of a firearm should own one. The Swiss Mini Gun carries the additional risk/benefit of conceal ability due to it’s small size, at just two inches (2.16 inches, or 5.5 cm, to be precise), the Swiss Mini Gun, is considered to be one of the most lethal of pistols.

But these are all common pieces of knowledge even to the fledgling fan. Let’s look at some other interesting pieces of knowledge about this marvel of marksmanship made by the Swiss Mini Gun Company, of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Swittzerland:

The Swiss Mini Gun: Facts You Should Know number one:

According to The Daily Mail, most people can get a stainless steel Swiss Mini Gun for £3,000 (around $4,800 US), but finicky collectors can order a version made of 18-karat gold, and encrusted with diamonds for £30,000 (around $48,000 US).

The Swiss Mini Gun: Facts You Should Know number two:

Although the bullets for the Swiss Mini Gun are tiny, they fire their 2.34 mm rounds at a speed of somewhere between 399 feet per second. At close range, this is quite fatal, and this is a true weapon. The accepted threshold for penetrating the skin is 330 feet per second. Once fired, the rounds have a range of 112 meters (367 feet)!

The Swiss Mini Gun: Facts You Should Know number three:

Most of the Swiss Mini Gun’s buyers are on a waiting list of six months for their order. The company has been manufacturing around 25 18-karat gold versions, and only 100 stainless steel versions, per year. The majority of orders go to the Middle or Far East.

The Swiss Mini Gun: Facts You Should Know number four:

The Swiss Mini Gun is small enough to pass as a key fob, thereby making the ideal stealth weapon, which is at the heart of the alert issued by the U.S. s’ Department of Homeland Security in September of 2006. But, not to fear, the gun doesn’t meet the minimum size requirements to satisfy “Factoring Criteria ATF Form 4590” and is therefore not importable.
