Now if you can order the MAGNUM model, I'd be interested, I just hate wounding birds.

He had to be using lead. No way he could get that kind of performance out of steel. Big smile

That is a 4 Gauge, chambered for both the 11 inch and 13 " shell, with the improved modified 84 inch, non- vented rib barrel( I could be wrong on the barrel length). A gentleman by he name of Elmer Fudd holds the Copywright, US Patent # 524507673.

Dunno about Mr. Fudd owning the copyright, it does look strikingly similar to an ACME 4 Ga "Roadrunner" model seen being shot by the famous desert Hunter, While E Coyote.......but I may be mistaken. Yes

I seen a couple of them around in museums but they were still attached to the boats. A pretty nasty firearm. It would decrease a flock in a hurry.

I don't look at videos because my computer is so slow but, sounds like you guys are talking about a "punt" gun. Commerical waterfowlers used them mounted in a boat and flock shot waterfowl. They went away in the early 1900's.

Were these guns actually hard mounted? The boats must have been pretty wide. I can't imagine the rocking they would cause in a boat if it were 18ft or under.
