Is this gun (M16 with Serbu) used in any armies?



www.hatchergun.com...

I thought it might be something a civilian had made but it looks very professional and I didn't think civilians could get M16s.


Also, if it isn't used, would it be useful?

are you sure it's an m-16? there are plenty of m-16 'clones' available easily on the civilian market.

Civillians can obtain and legally own M-16 TYPE weapons, but unless he/she holds a class 3 federal firearms license the fully automatic version is not legal...

as to the weapon pictured I think its some kind of joke because ergonomically it would be like wrestling an octopus...look at it...it has 3 pistol grips, the most forward being some 30+ inches from the buttstock
a user of low stature would have a difficult time to say the least to recharge the weapon after firing, IMHO...I doubt this particular weapon has seen any viable military use.

It is a class III weapon regardless because the shotgun is sawed off. I have read about these, but don't see much use in one, US Army uses either a Mossberg or Remington pump shotgun. (The one on the rifle is a Remington).

Reminds me of that gun the Indian guy in the predator movie used same concept with a shotgun under a M-16/AR-15 I know a guy that lives by me that has a shotgun a mossberg 500 with a MAC10 on it for the front grip it pretty wierd looking.

Sorry, look at the bolt. That is a Remington. This is a Serbu Shorty:



See the differences in the bolt and the trigger guard?

That is a serbu SUPER shorty the reciever is based on a M'berg a remington has more takedown pins


Also the remington safety is in the trigger group

WHOA big fella!, I apologize Wudman...I confused my 1100 with my 870

the shorty is built on a 870 anvil.... but the super is indeed a M'berg

Are shotguns like that classifed as Destructive device like the USAS-12 or the Striker-12 or Streetsweeper?

Shotguns like this are classified as Class III weapons under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Barrel length has to be at least 18 inches and total shotgun length has to be at least 26 inches for it to not be a NFA gun.
