OK, put me on the Regret-I-Clicked-This-Thread list. :w00t: :no:
Looking down the page, they offer synthetic or wood. NO, it has to be wood. That's what makes it cool.

Other than that, this might be the only reason I can think of to buy size 9 dust. But I wouldn't put anything more than a bog-standard Skeet load thru this thing. I'm not the master of shotgun ballistics,
but I don't think upping the power does squat through those barrels. (unless you have them threaded for full choke tubes :hmmm: ) (stop it brain. stop it right now :wall: )

What is it? A home defense type weapon for someone who can't legally own an actual firearm.

A brace of them, plus cutlass, would be great for repelling boarders.

Just for fun I asked about a 20 ga option...

“Thank you for your interest in American Gun Craft products

We only plan to offer 12 gauge at this time, you can load down to a 20 gauge level if you choose by using say 20gr or so, you'll find it is very comfortable to shoot. At 40 grains I can shoot this all day long and enjoy it

If you have further questions just let us know

Thanks
Tim

Doesn't sound like it would be ballistically worth much.

Being it's black powder and with some reasonable limits on load size, damn that could be effective. No FFL, no registration, it's a muzzle loader.

They don't show you the area where the chamber should be open, that's a little deceptive. Some people will buy it thinking they are going to be able to chamber a modern 12ga shell. That won't happen in something they can ship to your door without even a federal C&R license. It breaks open so you can put the primers in. Still, pretty slick idea, nice reading of the laws, and just the thing for the convicted felon on your Xmas list.

It's a muzzle loader?!? That went completely by me. But looking at the pictures again, I don't feel too ashamed. It looks like it breaks open.

Ah well. They're still cool.

I just got my hands on one of these. I heard some people were having a wait but it looks like they've got themselves all caught up. The quality of this item seems top notch.You can really tell that They take a lot of pride in their product simply based on the packaging the ship it in. everything was pristine and very well kept. The item came to me just as expected and even included a very nice stowaway bag. I can’t wait to take this thing out to the range because it’s sure not to disappoint. Discussing recoil Management is kind of moot since you’re able to pick your own loads. If anybody is still scratching their heads about the quality of this product… scratch no more! This thing is a winner!

Just a question... you don't sell these, right? Just a fan?

Just a suggestion, but shotguns using black powder are a lot more complicated than rifles. Whatever anyone does, make sure to follow instructions and pack the projectile against the powder. Air gaps = bomb
