I am starting a new thread with this request, after reading a previous but current thread.
Is there such a thing as the .22 IMP cartridge, or is it just a slang term for the .221 Fireball? I am talking in regard to military testing of a lightweight weapon. If so, could someone give us a brief history of it?
I find I have nothing in my files on this round. I don’t even know what IMP stands for, if anything. Can someone tell me?
Regarding the weapon made, which I assume was the Colt Lightweight SMG, does anyone remember what company made an awful semi-auto pistol (SMG look-alike) in .223, based on this Colt gun? It was not Colt, that I recall. We had one go thru our shop and took it out for test firing and to see what it was about. I remember one section of the weapon swiveled, but I forget the context of why it did. It was ghastly. Inaccurate, undependable, difficult to shoot even with the poor parameters of accuracy it had.
Anything anyone can tell me about the .22 IMP cartridge, or this commercial firearm - two separate, but related subjects due to the latter being a copy of the Colt gun, in concept anyway, will be appreciated.
