This old video from 7 years ago recently resurfaced on the web after it made rounds on various websites and on social media.
Uploaded on YouTube by Derek Miller on February 19, 2009, the footage has been getting a lot of buzz lately as it shows the features of an impressively terrifying belt-fed shotgun.
Yes, you read that right – a belt-fed shotgun.
Simply put, this isn’t your grandpa’s ordinary duck-hunting shotgun.
This homemade belt-fed shotgun by YouTuber Derek Miller can rapidly fire several bullets.
In particular, gun enthusiasts from all across the globe took great interest in the gun’s features and designs.
The firearm is shown in the footage, equipped with a belt of 12 gauge ammunition. If you look closely, you will notice that the gun’s upper receiver appears to be homemade while the lower part is a standard AR-15 rifle lower receiver. It is indeed quite impressive since it fires in full auto and semi-auto modes.
Derek Miller wrote on the video description:
“I have designed and patents pending on this.. It’s a belt-fed 12 gauge upper receiver for a ar-15 or m16 lower receiver. It uses your lower receiver, so if you have a ar15 it’s a semi auto shotgun, however if you have a registered m16 lower or a drop in auto sear it becomes a full auto 12 gauge machine gun. This is a prototype model and all the bugs aren’t worked out quite yet. Most of the problems that I have encountered revolve around the shotgun sheels not being consistent enough to eject sometimes.”
Watch the shotgun in action here:
As Derek himself points out in the description, the weapon is a work in progress and so it still isn’t perfect. Unfortunately though, no updates about this project have been posted since 2009. Derek’s viewers are left to wonder whether the project is still a go or not.
Anybody out there who’s ever heard of Derek? Hit us up in the comment section!
This Awesome Dude Shows Us How to Make Bow and Arrow Using Only Stones
This guy’s the sh*t.
If you're one of the hordes who watch The Walking Dead, you probably have an idea how the world will end up in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Aside from developing the stomach to obliterate zombies (with chunks of flesh splattering everywhere and all that), a person must be armed with primitive skills if he's to thrive in a post-apocalyptic world.
We're talking about stuff like making a bow and arrow from scratch which you can use to kill zombies. Because you know, not everyone is armed with his own badass crossbow like Daryl Dixon. Making your own weapon is actually very doable using things you can find in the woods.
Canadian Couple Spent Over 20 Years Building This Self-Sustaining Floating Island Home
They spent more than two decades building this spectacular island, and it’s not finished yet!
More than two decades ago, Wayne Adams and Catherine King decided to pack their bags, leave the city, and live their dreams.
The couple, who are both artists, wanted to build their home on their own a remote island completely surrounded by nature.
And at Cypress Bay in Tofino, British Columbia, the pair started building Freedom Cove--- a massive, quiet haven made from salvaged and recycled materials, which were painted in bright shades of pinks and purples....
This One-of-a-Kind House With A Tree Growing In The Middle Gets You Close to Nature
Would you want to live in this house?
A lot of us would love to have a tree house in our own yard; this somehow allows us to reminisce about our childhood and more importantly, it gives us the feeling of being close to nature.
But for one architect, being close to nature was taken to the next level when he designed a house that you would definitely be envious about.
Not only did Kazakhstan-based architect, Aibek Almassov, designed a unique and gorgeous house, he also won at gardening, considering a giant fir tree is growing inside the house, right in the middle....
