Stock-azine - Nomar 1911 Stock Mag (1937)

In 1936, Lewis Nolan Nomar patented this device, which is basically a large 40-round magazine for the 1911 pistol. He envisioned a military use for the device in trench raiding, giving men a compact weapon with a large capacity. Unfortunately for him, the device was both remarkably (and unnecessarily) heavy and obsolete the day it was patented. Not only was trench warfare a thing of the past, but submachine guns could and would do the job of his device better than it could. Ultimately, I believe only two of these were made and was never formally tested by the US military.

So THIS is what guys in action movies are using. It all makes sense now.


sensible indeed 🤣


I have to say he looks exactly as I imagine bespoke gun makers to look.

the Thompson had already existed for 20 years, and Nomar thought the world needed this unholy thing


Not only was trench warfare a thing of the past

Ukraine begs to differ

To be fair he wrote that ~7 years ago. It was a thing of the past for a while after WW1, untill recently.


One could say it was also a thing of the future


You need the extra rounds to compensate for this bulky thing interfering with your aim 😆
