Boberg Arms Manufacturing Video


Boberg Arms Corporation manufactures an unusual handgun that has been described as a “bullpup pistol” by some due to the fact that the chamber is located to the rear of the trigger assembly.

Boberg recently published this video:

The video shows one of the steps in the manufacturing process of the pistols.  The machine repeatedly works the guns’ slides to help smooth out all of the machining imperfections, essentially helping to break the gun in before it leaves the factory.  It is a relatively simple process, but truly ingenious.

Currently, the Boberg pistols are chambered in 9mm and have a barrel length of 3.35” with an overall length of only 5.1”.  Pricing starts at $995.

    I have a Boberg, dnding Serial 080 ‘first 100′. Its reliable, compact, and my daily carry. It is picky with the ammo, but its a carry firearm not a battle pistol. I do not care if it only likes a few types of ammo, it only fires a few hundred rounds a year, so it’ll be the premium +Ps. I’ve also got the Goshen HexSights installed, allows me to draw and fire in a few seconds. The pistol points extremely well and barely is noticeable when holstered. Its worth every cent of the price. I’ve directly contacted Arne, and their support response time is unmatched. I can’t wait for other their offerings!

      Yeah, at first I was like, what’s with the porn music? Then the machine started…

    Interesting. I wonder if these “bullpup” pistols shoot any differently to regular pistols. If so, might it be useful if applied to other calibres?

    Does anybody have experience shooting these, and if so, was it very much different due to having the chamber further backwards?

    Now if they could figure out how to put a follower in their magazines instead of having the spring push directly on the round. Mr. Rudolph, have you had your spring come out the top of the magazine yet?
