Can anyone tell if he used the breach sections or just barrel sections of a 12 gauge barrel to make the cylinder chambers?

Wow. That's actually pretty cool...in a totally bizarre kind of way.

Most all factory shotgun barrels are profiled too thin to cut chambers past the thick breach area, if he was using barrels from other guns I suspect he had to use a barrel for each cylinder. Best bet would be to buy a raw unturned barrel blank or bore your own from round stock but it appears he may not own a lathe which would explain why he chose to use pre-cut chambers chopped from existing barrels.

Interesting build but I hope he knows what he is getting into as far as the NFA is concerned, since 1994 revolving shotguns (over .50 caliber) have been considered destructive devices by ATF and you would need a stamped form 1 before making one. That said if you are buying a stamp anyway you are no longer restricted by barrel length or caliber and you can do 10ga 8ga 40mm whatever you want.

I'm with you. Bizarre. Likely built because he could.

Seems like it would be easier to just remove the plug from a auto loader or a pump shotgun.

Thats pretty cool. The Russians actually make a 12 through 410 bore revolver based on the classic Smith And Wesson double action:

I know it's been a long time - so I wonder if he's ever heard of the "Street Sweeper" which was the impetus for ATF to declare most revolving shotguns to be destructive devices.
