Default MACV-SOG experimental shotguns

Found this during an image search.



What little I can find on it claims they're experimental fully-automatic shotguns developed by/for MACV-SOG.

Both weapons were designed by Carroll Childers of the Naval Special Weapons Center. The bottom is a magazine feed mod for an 870, and the top is his full-auto "Special Operations Weapons", which uses the same 10 round magazine (some claim it is 20 rounds but I don't buy that) that his 870 mod did. I don't think either were used operationally, and I'm fairly certain that the SOW was only ever that single prototype. There is a bit more info and a couple of extra pictured here.

Damn, COD Black Ops needed this gun instead of a SPAS-12

I really think they missed a trick not having the Remington 7188 Mk1 in there. Not only is it pretty unique in that it is a time period accurate full auto shotgun that was actually used in Vietnam, but it also (IMHO) looks really cool with that barrel shroud and extended magazine tube.

There was a lot of period specific weapons and designs they missed out on in favor of the spoiled brats that love red dots and can never appreciate good old fashion iron sights. Seriously, they had shorty M16s but with flat tops, but to be completely not anachronistic, it's not rails. It's just a smooth top with weird red dots that should not exist. Fuck, I saw a promo poster with that same carbine but with the correct period Colt scope on the carrying handle.
