Weapon used in bank robbery in Vietnam

Originally a long gun locally produced for hunters, It has been modified or ‘sawn off’ into a pistol which was used in a bank robbery. A large extension spring powers the hammer which is part of a typical simple exterior lock set up. A toy cap would typically be used to prime the nipple combined, the propellant usually being black powder taken from fireworks.

Cobray Terminator Copies In Brazil

Someone in Brazil decided that perhaps the last firearm anyone should ever want to copy should indeed be copied. You’d think that anyone who likes their shoulders would at least ditch the original MAC-10 type stock (Yes, the originals used left over surplus of the worst stock in existence…. slapped on a 12 gauge shotgun). The example pictured above was seized on May 20th in the Federal District of Planaltina.

Possibly another Terminator inspired design.

A sledge hammer in the van or in the yard will evoke little suspicion. Flip the handle around, swap the shell from one end to the other and with these example you have a fully functioning 12 gauge shotgun.
