Double Barrel Pump Shotgun

So this picture was on social media. Shooting Illustrated posted this on their Facebook page and it looks like it was spotted at the NRA show. From the picture it looks like a modified Kel-Tec Shotgun. I am not really seeing the benefit to a double barreled pump shotgun. Sure having two magazine tubes in my KSG is wonderful and gives me options and higher capactiy of ammo. However I fail to see the benefit to a double barreled pump shotgun. I suppose you could have one smooth and the other rifled. Or you could have different chokes, if you have choke adapters. But I rather see tube extensions for the KSG. Or better yet, twin x-rails on the front of the KSG. I estimate it would be a 40 rd shotgun haha.

Here is a video of someone who made their own double barreled pump Remington 870. He used left handed and right handed 870s. At 30 lbs, I don’t see this as remotely practical, but looks fun to shoot.

    This is somehow the worst and the best idea I’ve heard in a while. Either way, fund it.

    • Nicholas C

      I know right? It is so over the top, It must be made just for the laughs.

    • Andrew

      A semi-auto KSG with dual x-rails. Now that I would pay for.

      • HSR47

        That’d probably cost a minimum of $3,500….

  • Michael

    I am now waiting for the Chiappa triple barreled shotgun to be made a pump

    • Eric S

      If there were a loving god, we’d see a 12ga version of the Kalashnikov ripper gun.

  • Blastattack

    Cool 1740 but absolutely no way is it 30 lbs. The heaviest 870s are about 8lbs each, and there is no way he strapped another 14lbs of metal to the guns. Neat concept though.

  • You missed the original Remington 1740:

    I’ve shot it; it’s loads of fun.

  • Drapetomanius

    Sometimes gun people are the worst kind of humbugs. I say shoot what makes you happy.

  • st4

    Useful for those close encounters of pinkies and cacodemons.

  • 1911a145acp

    I want it just because it SOUNDS like a Star Wars weapon when you fire it!!!

  • Pete

    This is for those Doc Holiday moments when you are seeing double. “I have two barrels, one for each of you.” It is the companion to the AF2011-A1 double barrel pistol from Arsenal Firearms.

    • noob

      and that double barreled AR-15 by gilboa

      • John Botts

        This shotgun slung under the double barreled Gilboa AR-15, and the Arsenal Firearms double barrel 1911 as a side arm…now I can doubly operate.

        • Cynic

          CAn anyone say 3/6 gun event?

  • Renegade

    The designer forgot one key element..

    This was the perfect opportunity to mount 2 bayonet lugs!!!!

    Bayonets are cool.

  • Frank L.

    Time to kill some Strogg!!

    • Wesley John Blokker

      Always wanted a pump action double barrel since quake…haha. The strogg are quaking in their metallic boots.

  • mechamaster

    It would be interesting if shotgun like Ithaca 37 got welded together.

  • Pete Sheppard

    Double .45s, double ARs…why not a double shotty? Next, a double bolt-action or even a double lever gun??

    • Eric

      already been done, look up the szecsei & fuchs double barrel bolt action

      • HSR47

        I think he means one that doesn’t cost >$50,000.

    • Rick

      quad barrel break action? Don’t think the double lever’s been done..yet.

      • iksnilol

        Quad barrel has been done some times. Made by fusing two O/Us together + a custom stock. You get the disadvantages of both O/U and S/S in exchange for double the capacity. Also, due to weight I recommend using short lightweight barrels in a quad barrel shotgun (18.5 inch, as thin as possible) to not mess up your swing or whatever.

        EDIT: 4 month old post? *facepalm*

    • Sid

      Exactly. Was my first association with this post.

  • echelon

    I don’t understand how people would not think it could be useful…

    If the controls are well thought out and you can switch from one tube to the other or feed both at the same time that could be extremely useful.

    Could you imagine 7 repeated shots of double barrel buck shot? Or buck and slug combo?

    Seems like a legit idea to me…from just that one picture I’m not seeing how it works design wise though so it could be totally lacking at this point…

    The picture as it is kinda hits me as an April Fools joke though.

  • iksnilol

    It is beautiful…They finally let one of us actually make guns.

    By us I mean crazy/creative people.

  • Jones Foxx Jr.

    Double triggers I hope. Could have its uses. 2 quick shots before having to pump each time. Does it eject both chambers even if one is unfired ?

    • JB

      Single trigger, but it fires one barrel at a time. I don’t know if you can set it to fire both at the same time. I think it dumps both shells with each pump, but I am not 100% on that. It’s a bit of a novelty.

  • Blackhawk2001

    Saw this at the NRA Convention over the weekend. HEAVY, but you get two rounds with each pump (two trigger pulls). I suppose if you want to maximize firepower but minimize weapon manipulation, it might work out. Seems sort of like a solution in search of a problem, though – apart from being a somewhat novel idea.

    • Anonymous

      Who made it? What booth was it in? What was it called? Was it actually going to be produced?

      • JB

        It was Booth 4166, I believe.
        Maker: Standard Manufacturing Company
        Model: DP-12.

  • Isaac FluffyWolf Rader

    There is no advantage other than more power. Still, it’s really cool.

  • 101nomad

    The more stuff, the more stuff that could go wrong.

  • ArcRoyale

    Whats better than a shotgun? Two shotguns!

  • Leemerk Rockwell

    It’s called the DP 12. Here’s a link for anyone who’s been as curious as I have
