Ever see a military rifle turned into a .410 shotgun?
Well, Ian from Forgotten Weapons found one.
This Ishapore Enfield Rifle is not your ordinary military arm by a long shot.
What do you think of when you imagine the perfect riot shotgun? Would it be a 12 gauge pump action shotgun or similar large gauge that can fire multiple projectile types? Well, this one just doesn’t fit into that category very well.
The Indian Army wanted a cheap mass produced ‘riot gun.’ They chose the Ishapore Enfield Rifle and made some modifications. It now shoots .410 caliber 2.5 inch shells and is a single shot.
How is that a riot gun? Well, it’s not exactly what we would pick, but to each their own.
Watch this in depth examination by Ian from Forgotten Weapons on this interesting ‘riot gun.’
