Amazing Homemade Revolving Shotgun

This 12 gauge revolving is very impressive. Other than the barrel, chambers (made from old barrels) and the hammer (from a 1857 Remington revolver), this gun is completely homemade. It cocks using a lever underneath the action.

Russian manufacture MTS makes a commercial revolver shotgun called the MTs-255 Tactical Shotgun.

    Doesn’t pack enough punch for me. I at least have to have am abrams tank so I can hit the target.

  • Greetings from Texas,
    Pity this is a once off.

    Reminds me of the ‘automatic’ shotgun in Metro 2033. Yes, a videogame, I know, but it handles firearms quite well for a post-apocalyptic setting.

      Best homemade guns I’ve seen in a video game, and it didn’t assume you’d all have access to functioning prewar weapons.

    that’s pretty sweet. Wasn’t there another post back about a 12ga revolver shotty? I like the revolver idea. seems very steampunk-ish.

    And i’m still waiting to see how the AGL Arms .45 Long Colt from the anime Trigun ( could be made.

    Rossi made the circuit judge in .410 and should be avalible in .28 this year.
    According to there website they plan to do a circuit judge with a lever action too.

    Reminds me of the Mikor 40mm Grenade Launcher

    I hate to be that guy, but I agree with gunslinger, that is a slick looking revolver. I love the low barrel profile and top break cylinder.

  • greasyjohn

    This is strangely similar to the Demoman’s Grenade Launcher in Team Fortress 2;

    If it took you more than one shot you weren’t using a Jakobs.
