For this POTD, here is a photo of a holstered Serbu Shorty. Although I don’t think this qualifies as a holster. More like a weapon catch since the trigger and trigger guard are not covered. Unfortunately the image is low res so I cannot make out exactly what is going on with the kedex weapon catch mechanism and how it holds the Serbu Shorty in place. I would hazard a guess that it snaps onto the barrel.

    Looks more like the Remington MCS to me…

  • TCBA_Joe

    It’s not a Serbu super shorty, it’s the Remington MCS.

    • Giolli Joker

      My first thought as well, and it’s use as “masterkey” gives a reason to carry it as “EDC”…

    • 40mmCattleDog

      Yep, the pump gives it away.

  • Rob

    As the commentators bellow pointed out. that is a Remington product. Not Serbu

  • iksnilol

    Why hasn’t anybody made a quad barrel shorty? I mean, think of a Winchester Liberator with 8 or 10 inch barrels.

    It would be shorter than these pump action thingies, hold a round more and not require a pumping action between every shot.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      If it gets any shorter the barrel is going to have to point backwards.

      • iksnilol

        Maybe, but would be a pretty decent gat. At least more decent than those short pump monstronsities.

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          And how many shells will it hold? Two maybe with one in the chamber?
          At least its small enough not to weigh you down when you have to run.

          • Mike

            Holds 3+1. In that config it’s intended for door breaching.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Screw that, just throw grenades through all the windows then knock politely and the door should fall right over.

          • iksnilol

            Uh, isn’t it obvious that a quadbarrel shotgun would hold 4 shells? And would in a worst case scenario weigh just as much as the pump action due to not having the big receiver and bolt.

            And due to being a break action it would be at least 10 cm shorter than the pump.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            No I was talking about the gun in the post.
            Your idea sounds good.

          • iksnilol

            Ah, I might not have entirely been sober when I read. 😛

          • Giolli Joker

            These are breaching tools, they are usually used by placing the muzzle very close or directly in contact with the lock, with multiple barrels it might not so obvious which muzzle is goingo to fire.
            A 4 barreled beast would be bukkier and heavier as well.
            Cool? No doubt.

          • iksnilol

            Wouldn’t be heavier, and it would be significantly shorter.

            If they wanted truly lightweight they’d just go for a shorty O/U. I mean, doors don’t have more than two hinges? Right?

      • Cymond

        Ever seen Killing Them Softly? It features some idiot criminals with a double-barrel sawed off shorter than the chambers. (I’m sure it was done for comedic purposes, and to show what idiots the criminals were.)

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          Thats hilarious, I remember starting but not finishing that movie because I didnt think it was very good.
          I wonder what that would actually do if fired.

          • Cymond

            I don’t want to find out!
            Honestly, probably a giant fireball and a small handful of lead pellets spit out like pea soup, with hilariously little force.

            FWIW, the movie contains one of the most beautiful slow-motion moments I’ve ever seen in a mainstream movie. Brad Pitt uses a 38 Super 1911 in a hit, and the slide cycle is show in pretty high detail.
            I would consider the movie to be in the same vague genre as Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels: several groups of criminals working at odds with each other, at least one group is a bunch of idiots, and almost everything goes wrong, with plenty of foul language and gory violence along the way. The movie was OK, but I definitely think the video clip is worth 2 minutes of your time.

    • I would think there’d be a better market for a four inch barrel O/U 20ga; it would be flat enough to conceal fairly well under a loose shirt or jacket and point so naturally it wouldn’t even need sights, and given how apocalyptic the fireball from a super short shotgun is, you probably wouldn’t need more than two rounds of 00 or #3 to make your point.

      • Austin

        I’ve seen a few SxS 12ga cut down to ~8″ and the stock shaved to a pistol grip

        • RICH

          I shot one ….. years ago. It was a hammerless sxs with 11″ barrels. ….. Don’t ever let anyone talk you into shooting one. I had two ‘hi-brass’ rounds in it and when I shot it the damn thing let go with both barrels. The lever to break it forward slid back between my thumb & index finger, split my hand open and hurt like hell ! ! Just a word to the wise…..! ! !

          • That’s the reason for that weird hawksbill protrusion on the back of the old Auto & Burglar pistol grips; it keeps the break-open lever from performing amateur hand surgery when it teaches you the meaning of “muzzle flip”.

          • RICH

            AMEN….. !

          • RICH

            The Hi Standard Auto Burglars are really sweet….. and also pricey in todays market !

          • Austin

            Why would you shoot both barrels , that’s unpleasant in a full size shotgun

          • RICH

            A ‘hamerless’ double barrelled shotgun that has been cut down and has had a lot of weight reduced will have a tendency to ‘DOUBLE’ …. meaning that both barrels will fire at the same time due to the less weight of the mass of the shotgun itself. Both barrels will fire when you pull the first trigger…. and it is totally unexpected…. & it hurts like hell when you’re not expecting it ! ! ! !

          • Giolli Joker

            Was it a dual trigger version? The single trigger should solve the issue, I think.

          • Cymond

            Good to know, since I’d like to chop one down someday. I’ll make a point to only use light loads, or microshells or chamber inserts or something.

          • RICH

            Try to find one with external hammers.

          • Core

            Reminds me of the time I fired an 8 guage double barrel shotgun when I was a kid. Except luckily the stock directed the damage to my shoulder. I was okay with it being a one time experience. I’ve seen some funny videos of elephant guns with serious recoil..

      • RICH

        SBR’s are really so much fun…… especially at night !

        • Somewhere I saw a video of someone firing one of those Dragon’s Breath gimmick shells out of an SBS in the dark, and it was like a gorram Saturn V night launch.

          • RICH

            They’re awesome…… !

      • Giolli Joker

        Paladin Armory makes their Bear Claw SBS (AOW) in both SxS or O/U in several calibers.

      • iksnilol

        I just think that people feel safer with more shots. I mean, that’s one of the reasons derringers fell out of favor.

        • I feel safer with my full size M&P 45 than with my Glock 36, I guess, but I think I’d feel even safer than that with a giant two-shot flamethrowing handcannon in a deerkiller gauge. Anything that would keep moving in my direction after a pair of fireballs like that probably wouldn’t have been dissuaded by the equivalent mass of four .45 or six 9mm JHPs anyway, and a 20ga shorty would make a much better blunt instrument at that point.

          The main problem with multi-multi-multi+barrel shotguns is that adding extra barrels to get extra shots also fell out of favor for a very good reason; the point of diminishing returns in regards to weight and handling characteristics was settled at “two” a looonnng time ago.

          • iksnilol

            I still think it is 4 if the barrels are short.

            I mean, look at this way: 2 barrels that are 26 inches equals 52 inches of barrel. 4 barrels that are 10 inches equals 40 inches of barrel. That’s 12 inches of barrel less, that can’t be heavier.

    • Mr.Volt

      I recal that the ZILLA corporation have made a similar model.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Perfect for shootouts in a phone booth.

    • Machinegunnertim

      Snake control!

      • Hey, COBRA is a real threat, man. You should do some research on them– knowing is half the battle.

        • Jwedel1231

          The other half is violence. Sweet, glorious violence.

    • RICH

      …… or in a car, in a closet, on the toilet or where ever you can’t stretch your arms out ! ! We all have to stay safe & secure .

    • The photo was used in this ad.

      • Bill

        It’s pretty obviously a beauty shot. Most breachers latch the shotgun on the off side so it doesn’t interfere with the primary rifle or holstered pistol, plus the guy isn’t wearing a LB belt.

        • Squirreltakular

          To be fair, it’s pretty common for guys to not use battle belts and just put everything on their flak.

          And his pistol is on his front.

          • Bill

            True, and I saw the pistol on his LBE, which I figured was a way to keep it in the photo while not detracting from the shotgun. No one I work with would move a primary from it’s normal location to make space for a specialized breaching tool.

          • Core

            Agree. CQD Mark I/II retention device from Blackhawk was always used on the left side. I like this rig for breaching, I don’t see anything wrong with it for blasting hinges and doorknobs.

      • Wow, that pistol grip is maximum garbage, you’d be better off with an Auto & Burglar. Sheesh.

  • The_Automator

    Wow. Really? C’mon guys. Try harder.

    • Bill

      Kinda yeah. The Serbu has been around forever, the MCS a number of years, each is pretty distinctive.

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    Remington MCS..

    How is it that you guys get these so wrong sometimes?

  • Pete

    Looks like it’s three holed for attachment to G Code discs which are pretty common in that line of work. But then, the standard technique there is a retention lanyard and a nylon-wrapped, PALS backed, heavy-duty magnet on the side for quick access and stowage
