20x42 compact from SA

Recommended Posts

Uses the 20 x 42 mm B (belted) ammo developed by Denel PMP that was originally developed for the 20 mm Neopup Personal Assault (later Area) Weapon (PAW).


Fires 110 gram projectiles at 308-310 m/s, so around 3850 ft.lbs (5220 J).


Video of the earlier weapon Neopup PAW being used.



I would imagine the above bolt action without a break kicks a bit more. Free recoil in the Neopup PAW, which weighs above 6.8 kg loaded and with optics fitted, would be around 5 m/s without the semi-auto action, so about 62 ft.lbs. Ouch!! Even with the lessening of the recoil due to the operating system, there's still a substantial kick.


Want any more info, let me know. Handy that my job involves covering this stuff.

No, unfortunately. Engrossed in teaching kids to shoot in the style of Fairbairn and Sykes. Looks good though.
