Low recoil fully auto shotgun

Yup, it's a real thing. Lots of low recoil-high capacity 12-guage Shotties on the market now.

That's pretty neat

Darn, not sold to civilians (U.S.).

Those eyebrows.

If we're going to have people using two of these at once, getting a left-handed ejection port might be a good idea. Watching the expended shells from one bouncing off the other was fascinating in a product safety evaluation sort of way…

blow back opp = very low recoil

I believe the army has special forces to do building storming so you don't need to.

So, are there classes one can take to become a "Professional Russian"?

Those videos are always stopping midstream to download another 30 seconds of action.

The US military did field trials with them in Iraq a couple of years ago. They were very popular with the troops, not so much with the insurgents.

Impressive. Russians like those big drum magazines. It's so low recoil that a child can operate one, but only if a beefy adult lifts it for him. I'll bet one of those mags, fully loaded, weighs 5 kg. Not a problem for a healthy young soldier, I suppose.

Does it leak water when it's being fired? Is it supposed to do that?

So this is the old Atchisson Autoshotgun I remember from The Morrow Project?
