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.
An improvised 9mm pistol found with a spare barrel, both with built-in silencers. The barrel screws into a breech made from a hex nut welded to a crude trigger frame. These were handed in to police by an elderly widow in Belarus.
Reader submission: “Here in Brazil there are many laws that prevent us from carrying a weapon legally, but since nothing in Brazil works, we make our own weapons by hand. This is a .22 caliber made by members of a gang of punks here in my town.” The ammunition also appears to be improvised by inserting a lead bullet into a .22 blank round.
