    Good design if you beefed up the metal to wood connection. Tie wraps are a bit flimsy to put your face behind.

    I'd add a spring loaded firing pin by drilling a hole from the back of the stock and using a locking latch, like a STEN has.

    I once saw a VC improvised rifle that was made that way and it was very functional as a "getter" gun.

    $200 per assault rifle? Can I just turn in a bunch of aluminum rectangles that I pay much less for, say these are ghost assault rifles, and collect my money? After all, the left is saying these are guns, so it seems legit to me.

    Heck, I watched a guy make a slam fire shotgun out of 2 pipes and some other various items on Youtube well over a decade ago. Single shot weapon. (Possibly of French manufacture. LOL). One shot - make it count.

    Outside diameter pipe was capped at one end with a firing pin contraption on it. Inside pipe fit a 12ga shell nicely inside. Insert inside pipe with shotgun cartridge in. Slam it home into the outside pipe. BOOM!

    It was all black-pipe (iron) from HD.

    Boris already won. I don't know how we can possibly top his strut shotgun, but I still would like to see what people come up with.

    It doesn't really say how much they paid for the shotgun ? I've got some scrap conduit and an old 2x4, probably could produce five or six of those... wonder if the "No Questions Asked" policy of the PD is legit? Hell no! I bet they have plenty of questions...
