Thanks to d_grey for sharing these pics of some custom guns he came across in Pakistan.
d_grey here (again) with more local AK variant pics. I took these recently in Gujranwala (a city in Punjab, Pakistan) while on routine inspection work. The first three gun pics are a semi-automatic shotgun made by some Italian company called Valtro (does this company even exist?).The second series of pics is of a heavily modified Darra made AKM (a very good copy too according to the owner) that was converted from an automatic rifle to a semi-automatic shotgun – the barrel was specially imported (I’m guessing it’s a VEPR or SAIGA part) whereas the magazine was also modified, it can hold 8 rounds by the wayway (checked it myself). The owner of the gun also had a modified drum magazine which he claimed holds up to 45 rounds and, he stated the gun was fired in shotgun configuration in full auto (under gassed I might add) and depleted the drum magazine in about 9-10 seconds, but had heavy recoil and….was incredibly fun to shoot.
According to Nathaniel F. The mystery round is 8mm.
Here are the shotguns.
