    Default New Military Shotgun

    ...from http://www.strategypage.com/gallery/articles/military_photos_2005620.asp

    American troops are testing a new 12 gauge automatic shotgun in Iraq. Weighing 10.5 pounds unloaded, the Auto Assault 12 (AA12) has a rate of fire of 360 rounds per minute, and uses either an 8-round box magazine (adding 12 ounces to weapon weight) or a 20 round drum magazine (adding 2.5 pounds). Recoil on the system has been reduced to that of a light rifle, due to a sophisticated recoil system. The low rate of fire makes it possible to easily fire bursts of one, two, or three shots and is capable of using and mixing all types of 12 gauge ammunition, from shot to solid slugs, as well as non-lethal rounds. Allegedly, Iraqi insurgents have little respect for the M4 rifle and the 5.56mm round, but they fear shotguns, especially a "street sweeper" like the AA12.

    Wonder what the can capacity is? Looks like he just loaded 5? shots into it. My friend use to have a streetsweeper. Other than it was fun to shoot I wasn't much impressed with it.

    I wonder how similar this is the Daewoo/Gilbert Equipment USAS-12*? Which was copied(or stolen) from Max Atchisson's full auto 12 gauge(can't remember the name). The military didn't want it for Viet Nam & may not want it now.

    What they need to do is copy the Chinese Ak-based belt-fed shotgun shown in SoF in the early eighties. Prison riot control weapon.







    *The drum mag sure looks like one, at a glance.
