    Default Homemade Break Barrel Shotgun

    Have any of you guys seen this build on youtube?

    Its called the "Homemade Break Barrel Black Pipe Shotgun Build"

    The guy uses spoons to make an ejector and trigger guard. Some of the stuff he uses comes from a thrift Shop including the steel he uses to make the frame.

    His latch is basically a toggle latch.






    After watching the videos for this build I realize some changes could be and possibly should be made for safety concerns but I also realize I have NO imagination for firearm design. I don't think I would ever have thought about using spoons.

    I'm sure it would fit in just great in Mad Max movie or in a post apocalyptic world,, but myself I'd much rather go to a gun shop and buy a used 12ga H&R or something like that first for < a hundred bucks. I've seen them for between 60 -80 bucks before. They may be rough,but at least safer.

    I don't think I'd be feeling very safe using pipe for a barrel, even if it's doubled up at the chamber and sense he already had silver solder,,why didn't he just solder it instead of JB Welding the chamber reinforcement and barrel lug on ???

    I do have to admit though,,looks and design wise,,It wasn't bad at all!! But by the time all was said and done, I bet he still had the price of a decent condition used shotty in it! Hell,I bought a piece of Red Oak a few weeks back to do some stair and landing repair at my daughters house while I was installing some flooring and 1,, 6' board was damn near 50 bucks!!!

    Kinda like building up a kit,,cost more to build than buying something outright in today's market !!!

    yep, you cant bet those old stevens/H&R topper open top single shotguns. I have repaired plenty, great for long trips, they break down easy for storage look less lethal they are cheap and spare parts galore

    cant beat the prices, these are great starter guns for those who want to get into this hobby

    My last H&R 20 gauge was $50 at a gun shop only a few years ago .

    Im not big on unsafe stuff or stuff that's possibly un safe . great that hes building would be greater if he strived to do better safer gun . It gives me ideas an that's a good thing

    I too questioned the use of water pipe for a barrel. I also question the use of JB weld too weld the barrel in place, but you guys have to admit using spoons was damn slick.

    You bet,,, the spoons were slick as Hell!!! I just may use that idea for something in the future, but I'd probabley go a silver spoon just for shit and giggles. I liked that idea and actually I'd seen that done by a guy that used to build reproduction black powder guns around here a few years back !

    The Mother of invention can yield some pretty neat looking stuff sometimes, and that is a good example!!!
