If anyone's looking for them in the UK, you can get something very similar in a shop called Instore. I think I might get one, you can also get a lever action shotgun too.

My good sir, would you be willing to enlighten us all on how you achieved such a handsome wood effect?

Very nice detailing

Is it going to be "steamed" in any way (tubes, boilers etc) or remain a conventional shotgun?

No steam on this one. I like the basic look.

The gun started with a light wood texture but when painting it I used a hard bristle brush to add some extra texture. I used two shades of brown in the paint and then when adding the top seal of floor wax i made sure to go over it with the same brush I used for the paint. I let the streaking work as wood grain and put it on uneven to give a natural look.

Wow, I am impressed! I use real wood to get the texture, but your paintwork is absolutely fantastic! Kudos, sir, kudos.

That is an amazing job.  Now you've gone and inspired me to try it myself.

What paint did you use?

I always start with a base of Krylon Fusion black. The rest of the paint is acrylic. I then mix black brown and a bit of green acrylic paint in with "Future" floor wax as a top coat.

add another idea to the list of clever ideas I'm going to steal...

I think, however, for mine, I'll make some steamed shells... no, not oysters or clams.... make soem strange, perhaps, glowing, ammunition...

Your painting technique is a winner to be sure, though if I might make one critique, next time try shaving/filling the seams on the barrels with modeling putty. Barrel seams make me crazy.

Sorry to necro-post, but I've recently found one of these online, bought it and am preparing to cut it down.  Just had a few questions:  what happened when you cut off the stock?  Did you had to lose all the electronics and therefore the sound and stuff?  That would be a shame, although I'd be totally ok with it.  Also, did you encounter any problems when cutting down the barrels?  Anything special inside that I need to be aware of or something like that?  Thanks!

I used some foam to fill it ( and keep it light wieght) added a lanyard and used cloth and leather to wrap the grip for a more "used" look to the shotgun for a Zombie fighter costume I made.
