This video is hilarious. Possibly the worst gun ever.

The USFA Zip .22 Long Rifle, also commonly known as the USFA ZiP Gun, is a .22 LR semi-automatic bullpup pistol. The pistol is made by the U.S. Fire Arms Manufacturing Company under the brand ZiPFactory. It is the only known firearm that has been produced by ZiPFactory.
Infamous for its many faults, such as high unreliability, poor ergonomics, and dangerous operation, the weapon was a commercial failure and led to the dissolution of its manufacturer and parent company, ZiPFactory and USFA.

Here's a vid on the history of the gun and it's mechanics/disassembly

At 12:20 Ian mentions a "reverse-picatinny"-rail for the gun so you can attach the Zip as an underbarrel weapon for rifles.
Now I want to see a Zip with a normal rail and another one with a reverse-rail attached together.
This also might be a gun where the gansta shooting style makes sense. Turn the gun sideways (right side down) and gravity might help with some of those ejection problems.
