Massive Homemade 12 Gauge Revolver

A Brazilian drug dealer was captured earlier this month along with his gigantic homemade 11 lbs revolver. The revolver chambers five 2.75″ 12 gauge cartridges. This dealer went with a traditional revolver look, rather than the tacti-cool styling of the infamous Taiwanese 12 gauge revolver.

It is sad that the drug dealer, or whoever made his gun, needed to resort to crime rather than putting their considerable talents to good use in the legitimate gun industry, especially in Brazil, home of the 28 gauge Taurus Tracker.
