Glorious Future

It is the year 2150. The NFA has been dead and gone for a hundred years, making machine guns and SBRs available to all. Cased telescoped ammunition is standard, allowing for more compact magazine designs, and caseless ammunition is slowly coming into its own.

How does the average gun change? Do we stick with 16" barrels? Does everyone switch to SMGs? Do homeowners defend themselves with fully automatic shotguns?

Most importantly, how does this change society?

      This.

      If gunpowder based firearms even exist they will be gimbal'd onto your body, automatically deploy from your side or behind your back and automatically track targets, the trigger will just be your mind thinking of it. You will perhaps see a crosshair or some icon superimposed over your cybernetic vision on the target.

      As for the firearms themselves they will be external chute fed, fully suppressed, possibly electrically primed. Computer controlled ROF, possibly through solenoids. Once you remove human centric ergos it just invariably becomes a tube.

    I imagine the subgun is now the chosen home defense item. More ammo than a shotty, but less noise and less risk of overpenatration (assuming we haven't started living titanium-walled hab cubes or something).

    Automatic weapons are no longer the coveted prizes they currently are, so anyone who's a gun guy owns at least one, even if it's STEN-tier and because he's a broke-ass motherfricker.

    Suppressors have become prolific, both in civilian usage and in crime. Hunters like them because it's just more pleasant to shoot. Home defense types like them because there's less chance of tinnitus as the price of sending Jamal back from whence he came. And criminals like them because they're moronic and think real life is like James Bond and "silencer" means nobody will hear it when you mag dump a MAC-10 into somebody.

    I confess I don't know enough about ammo to say what cased telescoped ammo prevalence would change, or how caseless designs finally reaching practicality would change things.

    If the NFA was repealed the only full autos I could afford to feed would be 22lr and 9mm subguns. Would still use a short barreled rifle with frangible ammo. I just get to use a stock now,

      If you're willing to get the brain implant to control a drone swarm you'd might as well get the pistol surgically implanted as well. You could even fit a rangefinder and wind gauge and have those connected to your brain as well. You'll also need the lenses changed in your eyes so you have perfect vision for maximum marksmanship.

      And yet we still have bolt actions even though semi-auto exists and rifle cartridges don't have RDX in them even though tank guns do.

    Anything even marginally useful in full auto will have a full auto selector.

    Barrel lengths will be all over the place, probably. I’m sure the majority of rifles will have <16” barrels, but there will still be the >16” for other chamberings that require longer barrel lengths. Long range rigs and so on..

    With SBRs becoming more ubiquitous, maybe we see dedicated SBR cartridges developed.

        Precision rifles are not aided by full-auto. There's a reason they're still predominantly bolt-action, and it isn't ammo conservation.

          Why does the most powerful military in the world use semi-auto precision rifles if bolt-actions are so much better? Why would we still be using bolt-actions in a hundred years if they're obsolete now?

            The US doesn't use semi-auto precision rifles. They just recently started replacing all of the bolt actions in the army and marines with the mrad. Which is a bolt action. All the ar10-like guns that are in service aren't precision weapons and they aren't treated as such. A dmr is not the same as a precision rifle.

        As long as the recoil is manageable. Or they might just make everything full auto for the hell of it. Why not? Saves you having to engineer a semi auto only fire control group.

    the year is 2150. Battery and electromagnet technology has advanced so far that cyborg Elon now sells automatic handheld railguns capable of firing 500 grain iron projectiles to a velocity of just under mach 8. coupled with a mech suit for stability you can turn up the fire rate to a comfortable 2000 rmp. All materials including battery packs and ammo are mined overplanet by spaceX, cheap and disposable.

        if you think about the physics of the situation, its obvious we need to move to smaller projectiles moving much faster.

        recoil is determined by the conservation of momentum. a fired bullet has momentum equal to m*v. an equal an opposite momentum is felt by the user as recoil

        the kinetic energy of a bullet, however, is 1/2 * m*v^2.

        so, recoil and kinetic energy are proportional to bullet mass
        but, recoil is only proportional to bullet velocity, while kinetic energy is proportional to the square of that velocity

        so, the best way forward is to use incredibly tiny projectiles that fly at insane velocities
        ideally somehow engineered to dump all their energy in the target
        but if that can't happen, its ok. a bullet moving fast enough will kill just by the temporary wound channel.

        Equal gun weights means the gun is traveling backwards sqrt3300 times faster. That’s like 550x faster or so. The gun recoils THROUGH you like it’s a tank shell or something

    I use a muzzleloader for deer hunting, which is 150 years obsolete, so I imagine people will still use current year guns in 2150. But you can't really compare because guns have peaked already and the only advancements in 50 years have been optics and flashlights, and I don't think there is ever going to be another smokeless powder-tier paradigm shift in the next 500 years anyway.
