Yep the Royal Marine Commandos developed them originally as a silent shortrange .45 cal rifle to take out sentrys etc for coastal raiding Nazi occupied france in the 1940s,they are as "Commando" as a Fairbairn-Sykes dagger.They were constructed from a Lee Enfield rifle heres a link.

Thanks for the link!

I'd never heard of them before either, but if I had to choose between that and a functional full auto Thompson Tommy gun, I'd choose the De Lisle. It's one of the coolest guns I've ever seen!

More likely (but still will probably never happen) is a Kriss.

I just sent an email to Special Interest Arms. They make replicas of these for states that allow silencers, of which AZ is one. I asked them what one would cost. I know there're two stamps that need to be purchased, too. A carbine (short barrel) stamp and a silencer stamp. I'll let you know what I hear back from them.

Special Interest Arms - Contact*Us

EDIT: I just found this page which lists their price at $2,250.

Major HMMM!!!

If anyone is serious about buying a De Lisle replica, the maker is going to be at the upcoming Phoenix Gun Show on 11/30 - 12/2. He's going to have one for sale with him. If there was any way I could buy it now, I wouldn't be telling you guys about this! :D But I can't until next year, so go for it. He expects it to be sold the morning of the first day, so get there early. And if you get it, I want to see pics!

If anyone is going to the upcoming Phoenix Gun Show, this gun will be available for sale there. The price is $2,250. The dealer will be in the SAR area. I am going to try my best to see it, but can't afford it until next year.



BTW - this isn't an exact replica. According to their website, the barrel is legal length, so you don't need a short barrel carbine stamp, but from the outward appearance, it looks the same. It still requires a silencer stamp and for silencers to be legal in your state. They've improved the bolt so that it can't be accidentally closed and modified it to take standard 1911 mags!

That is so cool. An awesome idea, a silenced .45. Perfect for taking out a sentry. Much better than sneaking up on them and trying an Austin Powers judo chop.
Seriously, I want one.
