Branching out, YouTube gun hobbyist AK Custom turned his talents to create a .410-caliber revolver that looks like something out of a Mad Max movie. Cautioning against trying such shenanigans on your own, he tests his “Thumper” out remotely with a few shells in the above video.
Using black pipe for the cylinders with a steel backplate and a rifled barrel to meet ATF guidelines on how the NFA intersects with the manufacture of shotguns, his DIY Judge (or Thunder 5?) takes shape in the below video. In the end, the big handgun weighs somewhere around 5-pounds and looks a lot like a LeMat revolver from the 19th Century, but it does have a certain garage build panache to it.
