<XMP><BODY></xmp> Disposable guns

        Recently I was looking at some websites on Cyberpunk games. One idea that seems quite popular is that of disposable polymer and aluminum pistols.

        In fact this idea is not that futuristic. The Russian secret services made us of three shot "Troika" pistols. These resemble "powder and ball" muzzle-loaders with the charge fired by a 9 volt battery. It's surprising that the barrels were not made as a captive piston design to reduce the firing signature.
