I believe it was officially known as a "boarding gun"

For Bonus Points, What type of sight is that mounted on the BXP in that particular Picture?

OK, not really a weapon per se, but can anyone identify these? (Cause I can't)

So it would seem my dear MAB, So it would seem. I should've known you'd get it though I am suprised you recognized it in a proper mount and not hose-clamped to a carry handle

hoepoe,

first one appears to be a South African "Striker", semi-automatic, 12-gauge. I have a question about the second one. Is it a 12-gauge, double-barrel, pump action?

Full points onthe Striker,it was later adapted to US laws and sold/used as a US Streetsweeper with an 18'' barrel.

On #2:
Type: pump-action ("forward-back" handguard movement instead of classic "back-forward", moving barrel)
Gauge: 12 ( 2 3/4" - 70 mm chamber)
Length: 690 mm
Barrel length: 570 mm.
Weight: 3.9 kg empty
Feed: dual over-the-barrel tube magazine, 6 + 6 rounds capacity

The US "Streetsweeper" and all other high capacity box/rotary mag fed shotguns were declared,"Destructive Devices" same as hand grenades, Grenade launchers, Recoilless rifles, German '88's, etc. by the 94 crime bill I believe. Now all of those type weapons are more severely restricted and require registration and supplemental taxation just like machineguns do in this country. Land of the Free and all that.

Now, I believe #2 is called a "Neostead" it is also South African in origin and as you mentioned, works much like a conventional pump shotgun, only backwards.

Good stuff, Keep 'em coming

Try these...
#1 German Panzerfaust or clone
#2 Taiwanwese T86 Carbine
#3 Iranian Khaybar KH-20002 (to be fair, this was posted earlier)

Alas Hoepoe, I am but a lowly civilian, shouldn't be too hard ;-)
