They’ve built a 1911… shotgun?
This image of a “custom 1911 shotgun pistol” has gone viral in the last week across gun forums everywhere. We have no idea where this came from other than “somewhere” in Thailand as evident by the Thai characters along the “slide”. If the time stamp on the bottom of the photo is to be believed, it’s been around for nearly 8 years, but we’ve never heard of it.
These images appeared out of nowhere in a Thai Forum. We ran the text above the images through a translator and came back with this gibberish:

Interested custom made me wash my uncle.”
Is that last sentence supposed to be a question? Sure we’re interested, and it looks custom made alright, but what does assisting your uncle with basic hygiene have to do with it? Must be some sort of culture shock on our part.
Like some suspected it is a plastic BB gun, but it’s been modified to fire a single shotgun shell, and we do mean single. After one shot the ultra-cheap weapon explodes and is basically useless. “Pradit” guns like this are illegal homemade 12 bore shotguns built from existing gun frames including BB guns. They’ve become increasingly common among poor gang members throughout Thailand.
