    I finally saw the Expendables last week and thought the short shotgun that Lundgren had at one point was really cool. I didn't find anything on any replicas being available, so I decided to try to make one. Not to be completely static, I plan to have the pump-action work.
    Here's the actual gun:

    And here are some pics of the start.

    Off to a great start!

    I still have my remington 12 inch 12 guage for home defense.

    Just point and shoot! :D

    O/A length is 12"? Wow, and I thought this one coming in at 16" was small.

    Thats just sick! Awesome job.

    I've seen one of those super shortys in person and I am not sure I'd want to try and they are just insane looking, great for home defense but wow.

    There are a few cheapo airsoft guns you could have cut down and modded to work as well, but I doubt they would be as sturdy (or as scratch build cool) as what you're making. I am always in awe of folks who can do builds like this and make them look so easy!

    That's a great build right there - It's going to look fantastic when you have painted it up.

    Small update. Put the first coat of primer down and added grip to forestock. Is it just me, or does everyone notice a LOT of inconsistencies and blemishes after priming their projects? Maybe I just get rushed to start painting, and prime them too soon, but I now have a good bit more sanding/smoothing to do.[​IMG]

    Sweet! So, is that the real gun or a cast?

    Its a casting. Working trigger, slide and safety. One has been altered to load shells.

    Weekend progress:
    Putty added to seal miss-cut on barrels.

    Second primer coat.
    [​IMG]
    First layer of finish coat. Waiting on pump assembly and eject port cover to dry before final attachment and finish detail. PlastiDip sprayed on handle for grip. The pump action should work when finished, but I'm having problems with the paint scratching off on tube. Any suggestions how to remedy this would be great!

    It looks like a remington/mossberg hybrid! Cool.

    As for the scratching paint, that's always a consideration when you're doing a build like this. I think most folks solution would be to make the pump grip static.

    I primer to find the imperfections. My first coat of primer is usually very thin, just so I can see the small issues.

    Yeah, uh, hi...um, I was just wondering if there's a cool gun you can't build?

    Amazing work!

    Nice catch! Yeh, I liked certain aspects of each one and kinda combined them.
    And yeh, if I have to I'll glue the pump in place, but I was hoping to have it move so you can see the shell in the chamber.

    Thanks!
    Well, so far the MG42 seems to be my nemesis. I started it 3 years ago, and quit when it wasn't working right. I went back to it and the same thing happened. I have a few new tools and more experience now, so I hope to eventually complete it

    Here are a few shots of the finished piece. I'm working on a display case with the Expendables logo and will post some pics when done.
