It's all steel. Made out of 16 ga. It's hollow with slot and tabbed ribs. Plug welded and ground. Like the Springfield M6, it has on board ammo storage in the stock. 11 .410 rounds. It is a little heavy, weighing in at around 8lbs. I keep it in my vehicle, broke down. Also like the original, there is a single pin that seperates the barrel completely or simply unlock the breech lock and fold it in two.

I like that. I want to build something like that but shorter barrels and a pistol grip for a tractor gun.

Thanks. My next build is going to be a single shot break barrel .410 handgun. Similar in function to the Cobray/Leinad derringer but with the look of a modern semi-auto handgun. Another poor mans judge.

Can't wait for the next one. How is the accuracy on the double barrel.

Initial tests were using Winchester 2 1/2 inch 1/2 oz. #9 shot target load at approximately 15 yards. Pretty even pattern against a 12" target. I was playing it safe when first fired in case something went wrong, so I hip shot the first few rounds. The barrels are 20" long verses the military issued 14.5" and the civilian 18.5"
