In July, police in the city of Cherkessk in the Russian Federation arrested a 38-year-old homeowner who was charged with making these improvised revolving shotguns from a home workshop. Each 12 gauge shotgun consists of sections of steel pipe welded together with a Ghost Stapler functioning as a trigger.
This six shot improvised 12 gauge shotgun, which is incomplete, was seized by police along with Satan’s Plants by police in Brazil. On this crude example the drum is formed from multiple steel tubes welded together with a thumb screw below which is tightened to align and lock each chamber. The firing mechanism is missing.
“12 Gauge made from hardware store items. The shotgun is cocked by pulling the entire barrel forward several inches until it locks into place. Then a shell is loaded through the breech. When the trigger is pulled the barrel retracts back into the receiver and carries the shell to the firing pin. Pulling the barrel forward again extracts the spent shell and tipping the shotgun to the side dumps the shell on the ground.”
