Crafting a homemade survival shotgun with a few surprises (VIDEO)

Sure, it looks like a plumber’s nightmare, but this DIY shotgun actually has a lot of interesting features.

Constructed by AK Custom, the build is pretty straightforward and accomplished with a few hand tools, a welding machine, and a tabletop vise. The NFA-compliant garage gun is a hybrid slam-fire design that incorporates a hammer and trigger, providing more control than a Philippine guerrilla gun.

It’s also got some bonuses. The paracord-wrapped grip has a storage compartment while the skeleton wire stock holds spare shells. Best yet, the wooden forearm hides a pair of last-ditch knives for those stabby moments. What’s not to like?
