They should do this in all school zones. I hate seeing people blast past kids.

Using chambers cut off 12 ga. scrap barrels and a new $10 bbl for an Italian auto shotgun, the only other gun part is a scrapped hammer from a 1857 Remington perc revolver:

Loads like a SAA Colt but underlever rotates and cocks it.  Blow-by is negligible, hardly noticeable with normal shirt sleeve.

Opened for some still shots, at top of the inside pix screwed in is the firing pin, impact type with return spring.  The ratchet or star with the hand is visible below on the left side, also the pawl that cocks the hammer.  The cylinder indexing lock is external, operated by the under lever.  At very bottom the small knob releases the cylinder to turn clockwise for loading.

Due to limited equipment I was unable to copy existing mechanisms so it is pretty much designed from scratch, largely by cut and try, trial and error, etc.

Very Awesome. I love seeing people’s project guns.

Beat’s the Beretta Revolver Shotgun in quality, that’s forsure. :P

The Crosman MAR177 consists of an upper receiver and requires the shooter to provide their own lower AR to complete the gun. This allows the competitor the versatility to utilize their own high-power AR lower with a competition-grade trigger group.

Utilizing a PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) power plant affords an advantage over competitors, with less recoil and eliminating the need to repeatedly pump.  “This air rifle features a multi-shot, removable, 8-shot rotary clip and an internally rifled Lothar Walther™ barrel,” according to Neumaster.  “With a fill pressure of up to 3000 psi and velocities of up to 600 feet per second (fps), the rifle boasts 10-shot groups at 10 meters of less than 9 millimeters,” he said.  The MAR177 is capable of 120 shots per fill and meets requirements for National Match Air Rifle competitions.

PCP huh? I didn’t know Crosman liked to get wet.

All I can think of is the Chappelle show skit below:

So many great lines in that skit, but the one when Dave was on PCP: “White people love Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumble look like Malcolm X.” -Negrodamus

But I digress… In conclusion, the Air Rifle upper is cool.

Beats shoveling! Somehow I don’t think my neighbors would approve of this method if I tried it on my driveway.

Associated Press photojournalist Kevin Frayer recently sent out a group of stark black-and-white aerial images that show the rugged, inhospitable terrain of the province. Frayer made the images while flying in a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army’s Task Force Shadow “Dust Off”, Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment.
