Slam Fire Shotgun

    Anyone have any experience making one of these?
    The basic principle is that its a shotgun made out of two steel pipes, a firing pin, and a cap.
    Im hoping that there are 3/4" pipes available that dont need to be sanded or altered in any way, because I don't have access to any of those types of tools atm.
    The general idea is that you can build a functional 12 ga shotgun out of $20 or less in parts.

    Check out about 2:33 to skip assembly and see it in action. It works exactly like a normal shotgun would, but relies on the force of puncturing the primer with the ole "slam" motion

    would be fun to build one of these, but the main point is, this sort of thing is why banning guns will never work. any moron can make one of these from junk laying around in a garage. Better and more accurate firearms can be made using a lathe and some basic machine shop tools. This sort of thing is exactly what the 2nd amendment means. The 2nd amendment is our 'god given right, to 'bear arms', because, like god gave animals teeth and claws, god gave us the ability to fashion weapons from the very elements of the earth itself to protect ourselves and our family. A 'god given right' can never be taken away,, and 'the right to bear arms' is as basic as picking up a rock to strike at a wolf attacking our flocks. Even prisoners get ahold of weapons, it can never be stopped.

    If you didn't mind the tediousness of it, you could make a better barrel for nothing by melt-casting and tempering. Go ahead and buy a shitty steel pipe with a seam in it though.

    I'm wondering since so many people just use shitty steel pipes to make DIY guns, couldn't you just melt cast the barrel to the right shape and temper it? There's no rifling required for a shotgun so...

    Just answered my own question:

    Extreme care was taken to ensure integrity of the bore. Visual inspection of the surface was done using a mirror to reflect the sun's rays down the barrel. A special tool, called a 'searcher', with a head of curved barbs like a large fishhook, was worked down the barrel. The barbs would lodge in cavities, which allowed their position to be plotted. Once located, a wax impression of the defect was made, which would decide acceptance of the barrel or not.

    As the drilling process improved, barrels were cast without a central hole, and the bore was drilled in solid metal. This resulted in less distortion and improved integrity of the bore.

    So, a quick way to do it would be to cast and then temper the barrel. Which, if you can find used cooking oil/grease or don't mind making your own charcoal, a gun made this way could potentially cost nothing at all.

    barrels had to be forged, tempered steel is going to shatter into a million pieces like a piece of glass.

    An old Winchester Model 12 pump will slam fire if you keep the trigger pulled while pumping.

    False, read what I posted. I answered my own question. They had been using cast and tempered barrels quite some time prior to improving the drilling technology. Unlikely any of them would actually shatter.

    in no where was tempering mentioned in your source or quote.

    tempering causes metal to be in a state of perpetual stress and brittle.

    That's false. A real Chinese person would automatically know this.

    a genuine white person would attach supporting links to prove this.

    you sheetskinn.
