This Soviet Union experimental shotgun has the cool factor for sure.
The Soviet Union experimented with many weapons during its’ reign. This is one of those weapons that had potential.
This take down tactical shotgun is what this “cosmonaut” needs while battling Martians. The experiment was sadly discontinued.
This pump action shotgun was detachable magazine fed, had a folding stock and an all business tactical look. Many common features are noticed on this shotgun that ended up on such modern shotguns as the Saiga shotgun family.
While we are not sure why a cosmonaut would need a gun in space, we do know this one had potential.
