    The Atchinson Automatic 12 gauge shotgun !

    Read about 'em here:

    Modern Firearms - Atchisson AA-12

    Got to meet with the current manufacturer that lives not far from me, and burn thru a drum of 20 rounds. Pretty awesome weapon ! You ain't lived until you've sent 20 rounds of buckshot down range in 4 seconds !

    Absolutely NO recoil at all.

    The one I'm holding has had 6,000 rounds run thru it and never cleaned.

    I rarely get gun envy, but I've got a real case of it now.

    Price tag ( if you could buy one.....he won't sell to the public due to liability, and has all the orders he wants from overseas )

    Nice weapon! Except for the price, it makes the little Kel-Tec monstrosity totally ridiculous and superfluous.
    Glad he's making sales - the gun was first designed back in the 70's!
    The youtube videos are great fun to watch.

    I shot a Saiga automatic 12 gauge a while back; it recoiled.

    Slick and the design of it is even slicker. The Atchinson has extra long recoil system; the bolt travels farther than normal which lessens recoil and cycle rate.

    I would just stick with this. At least I could have a better shot at owning one than the AA-12
