    Improvised shotguns

    Youtube has a few clips of improvised shotguns made of black pipe.

    It ussually includes an 18" pipe that acts as a barrel, and a larger pipe that slides over the 18" pipe, that forms the chamer and firing pin. When you slide the two pipes together, the shotgun shell fires.

    I really like the idea of having several of these stashed in BOL, BOB, etc but what about the safety aspect of this?

    If anyone finds a link to information that showes this sort of weapon exploding can you post the info? If anyone finds a link to someone that has modified the design to make it extremely safe, can you post a link?

    I don't have access to a welder or machine shop. Any tips on how I could make this and make it very strong would be apreciated.

    1) It is illegal. 2) If I knew how, I would not tell anyone because....IT'S ILLEGAL. 3) I don't want the BATF knocking on my door for posting how to make an ILLEGAL firearm. 4) IT'S ILLEGAL 5) I is incredibly UNSAFE 6) Single shot shotguns made by a licensed firearms manufacturer are pretty cheap, especially used ones in good condition. It would be much smarter to BUY one. 7) IT"S ILLEGAL.

    I like triggers. I like my shotguns to have triggers. Remington always puts a trigger on their shotguns. I like Remington.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It sounds like the breach pipe that slides over the barrel portion of pipe will be blasted back at you! I wouldn't try it.

    I would suggest you simply purchase a legally made firearm, rather than discussing how to manufacture firearms, here.

    I would also highly suggest you become properly permitted to manufacture a firearm before doing so.

    You'd do better to purchase even a single shot shotgun that was manufactured to put one together, yourself.
