All guns are dangerous. But there are certain firearms that simply tower over the rest of the field in the danger department. Here are the top 10 most dangerous guns in the world, which range (no pun intended) from assault rifles to handguns.
Created by Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal, a Belgian firearms manufacturer, the Fusil Automatique Léger (FAL) battle rifle is one of the most dependable guns used by the military. Militaries in over 90 countries have used the FAL, a testament to its top quality.
The FAL uses a gas-operated action and is chambered for 7.62x51mm NATO cartridges. It can fire 700 rounds per minute when in fully automatic.
Rheinmetall MG 3
The MG 3 is a general-purpose machine gun manufactured by Rheinmetall, a German military arms manufacturer which also doubles as an automotive parts supplier. It is a recoil-operated fully automatic gun which uses 7.62x51mm NATO cartridges.
The Uzi is a submachine gun designed by Major Uziel Gal of the Israel Defense Forces. It is a blowback-operated firearm first introduced to the IDF in 1954. It was originally outfitted with a wooden buttstock for stability before manufacturers modernized the design.
Glock .45 GAP
The Glock pistol is a semi-automatic pistol manufactured by Austrian weapons manufacturer Glock. Founded by Gaston Glock, the company has been in the arms industry since 1963. The Glock pistol is one of the most dangerous because it’s easy to hide and carry around. Over 5 million units of the polymer-framed pistol have been produced as of 2007.
The M4 Carbine is a staple in the United States Army. It’s the shorter version of the popular M16 Rifle which, in turn, is a military adaptation of the ArmaLite AR-15 Rifle. The M4 Carbine has the same firepower as traditional assault rifles. Its firepower and portability make it an extremely effective and dangerous gun.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX Pistol
Counter-Strike players are intimately familiar with the power of a Desert Eagle pistol. It can easily kill a person with just one shot, making it one of the deadliest guns in the world. First produced by Magnum Research Inc. in 1982, the Desert Eagle is a semi-automatic, gas-operated pistol with a maximum firing range of 200 meters.
Heckler & Koch HK416
Designed by Heckler & Koch, a renowned German weapons manufacturer, the HK416 looks similar to the M4 Carbine. This is unsurprising considering both firearms were based on an AR-15 Rifle. An HK416 chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO cartridges comes in different sizes. The shortest is a 264 mm sub-compact while the longest is a 505 mm full-sized rifle.
The AK-47 is not only one of the most dangerous guns in the world, it’s also one of the most easily recognized. It has a very distinct look that makes it easy to spot, even among ordinary citizens. Designed by the late Mikhail Kalashnikov – a Russian general and military arms expert – the AK-47 is a powerful assault rifle capable of being effective in both close-range and long-range combat.
Accuracy International AS50
Manufactured by Accuracy International, a British firearms manufacturer, the AS50 is one of the most dangerous sniper rifles in the world.
