I came up with this gun design a year or so ago. I think the idea for such a wide barrel has been done, like the bug-squarish one, "Special munitions" or something. Even this use of gray rods has been done as a grenade launcher- but never with a trigger. The usefulness would be to use as a shotgun, of course, or fire those little black circle things. I've taken this apart some time ago, but it could be rebuilt. I realize the wide ramrod tip would seriously decrease power, but it is a less piece-consuming version of the barrel seen on the previously mentioned "special munitions" (or something) gun. Does anyone think this is valuable?

i don't get it, how is this barrel any different from a normal one? it would be easier to tell what it is with better pics.
Oh hey I get it. I was just about to use this for a simple grenade launcher too. I think basically it's like having a snowflake wrapped in grey rods and then the big space of the hole the grey rods make is the barrel.
ok, i have tried to use that in one of my failed attempts at a lever action rifle. i was going to use that to make a breach for it. well, thanks for clearing that up for me, the pics confused me, most of them are of the ram.
