Shotguns Available From Hardware Stores

The world’s simplest and cheapest 12 gauge shotgun which consists of two pieces of thick gas or scaffolding pipe with a nail fixed to the rear.

When encountering such firearms examiners must be especially careful to ensure no round is present in the chamber avoiding any rearward movement of the barrel before further handling.

Improvised single-shot shotgun

An improvised 12 gauge design. Presumably bolt handle locking, which slides forward to open. How the favella engineering department seemed to exceed ahead of Cobray on this one is anyone’s guess.

Bolt action shotgun (Philippines)

A local craft made bolt action 12 gauge shotgun typically produced by rural gunsmiths. The bolt handle appears to have battered and peened back the locking slot. Seized in Manilla.
