This is my first instructable so be nice. Anyway this gun features:

3. A wide barrel that enables multible shots to be fired like a shotgun.
4. Easy to add parts on the inside due to pins that can be removed easily

    It doesn't look very pratical nor does look like it was made to actually be good at shooting things but it's an interesting concept as the mech is a bit of a prototype (there hasn't actually been a good lever action rifle made) but after a lot of tweaking it could be good...

    Well...Kind of. Lever actions actually take part in loading the round from a tube mag and that one is just tied to a ram gun. So it's kind of meh.

    The part of this gun that needed to be the most sturdy is really weak. I would make the stock A LOT more sturdy, then put the lever on top of the gun instead,

    I am not liking the position of the lever in this gun; nor exactly the looks of the gun either. Good try though.
