Is this a real gun that is being manufactured?

I recently saw in the news an odd looking long barrel rifle that a Narco thug was carrying in Mexico. it looks to be using a pistol caliber round. So I was wondering if a company actually makes them or not, or it it was made locally in their country. Granted it could be a fake though.

Unless all the mechanicals are on the left side, I think it's a wooden prop.

Wow, if they were to actually make that as a working shotgun, it could easily become all the rage at 3-gun matches!!!!!

Has a front sight but no rear sight. And a buttstock that looks, suspiciously, like 2x4 in dimension.

I'm doubling down on my LumberLuger assessment. It's a non-rolling Pinewood Derby type art project.

I would think a real narco thug would have a real narco thug gun.

Or..... perhaps the French have silently kick-started production of their magnificent Chauchat once again, and this is just the latest iteration..... in tactical, operator, tiger-stripe, lizard-poop green.

Blumberg just had a billion of these made to propel his anti 2A agenda!

Heard it from a friend!

….and according to VA's anti-gun "expert", Mark Levine, by the way it's being held, it's an assault weapon!

I don't know. Could be a street sweeper, though. I mean the guy holding the broom, not the wooden toy painted in camo.

He picked that up at one of our Kommiefornia gun buy back thingies.

The big joke is that they will actually give you money for crap like that.

My kids made more realistic shooters than that!

Tarmy ---------- NOPE, they will not give you money for "crap like that" ------I've been to two of these events. It has to be a real gun that appears operational. And the cops manning the table know what they are doing.

Parts guns & floppy-slide / non-op firearms are rejected. Plus there hasn't been money offered at the ones here. Just grocery gift cards or skateboards.

Not knowing the actual facts behind the photo that is my guess as well. The real thugs in Mexico have no problems getting ahold of real weapons. The law-abiding civilians on the other hand are screwed as usual.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

yes it had me wondering for a little there. I agree it is some kind of a prop gun/fake gun. This was a picture the media had about a article on why the Mexican War on the Cartels is failing. if I can find the article I'll post the link to it.

It looks like the guy in the white mask behind him might have a handgun in his hand.

Good grief, guys, it doesn't have a receiver, a charging handle or an ejection port. Of course its a prop, but not one that would ever be used as a stage prop - its not that good. Just a gag of some kind, I guess. But I have to admit, now that I've seen it, I want a green 36" 12 ga. with a transparent magazine full of mini-shot shells.

gts350 ................... they wouldn't just buy an Airsoft replica instead of bothering to build & paint this hokey woodshop project?

uh huh. That makes TOTAL sense

Or were you kidding? Sarcasm is tough online.

I know you were trying to be accurate...which is appreciated.

That is why I said “the big joke” part...my humor was missed...not that my humor is even funny.
