Back around 1977 or 8, two of my friends worked with/for Max Atchisson. Max's was the original inventor of this 12ga. assault shotgun. He called it the Atchisson Assault 12ga. and the were calling it the "Street Sweeper". They were trying to sell pre-production orders to raise capital to get it manufactured. Me being a young fool I bought into it with $300 down and we would get serial numbers under 100 and pay another $300 when they shipped. It never happened and I lost my money. I heard that Max took some of the money and bought a Gutenberg Bible and was going to turn it around for a large profit. The Bible turn out to be a fake and he lost alot of the money and never was able to raise enough capitol to launch his gun. I did get the chance to shoot one of the prototypes (fully auto). That is one bad Mofo...his gun looked more like a M16 and didn't have that clamshell stamped steel look. Oh, ours were going to be semi auto...

It's actually not as heavy as it looks, it's about 10 pounds unloaded.

That's a cool story. Sorry you lost your money brother....

Atchisson was the first person's design that I ever heard of, in writing, and I swore THAT was the shotgun for me....

What could have been Max, what could have been.....
