Police discovered the potentially lethal weapon after an anonymous tip-off about a horde of unlicensed firearms in Luleå, northern Sweden.


A 54-year-old man war arrested after a raid at his house uncovered a sawn-off shotgun, a home made sub-machine gun, a Mauser rifle, two revolvers and a walking stick adapted to shoot like a rifle

Awesome,thats some truss rod on that thing,im no expert on crafting guitars,attempted it once when i was younger,was going really well till i fitted the neck and realised it bent back a bit and the strings would just buzz off most of the frets, lol

Anyway have you guys seen anything like this before,weapons concealed in everyday objects or instruments,i did a search and came across various swords fashioned out of walking sticks for sale but nothing like this!

Years ago I took a tour of the FBI building in DC. They had a display of odd confiscated guns with several "concealed" type, including a shotgun in a walking stick. People get very creative when it comes to things like that.

LOL "Gets nasty, get down to business!"

I love that FMG-9.

I'm not sure of the legality of it for civilians, considering the barrel is too short to be a rifle, and it can't be a pistol because it has a stock, I wonder if it could be considered a SBR or AOW to allow civilian ownership? Obviously if you use a Glock18 for it you would also need to have a FFL or CIII permit, but damn I want that thing!

I also saw quite a few cool ones on the History channel before, like the ring and watch guns:

Interestingly, of all the weapons out there, the 12 gauge shotgun is the easiest to make from scratch. Requires no rifling, just a thick enough tube, a chamber for the shells, a simple trigger system and something to act as a receiver and you have a shotgun.

Firearms of any type can be concealed. However, the simplicity of a shotgun makes it among the easiest to do so with.

Ha ha ha, the title of the article is "Death Metal". And since I need a second line, this isn't exactly a weapon "concealed" in an ordinary object (like a tommy-gun inside a violin case), it's more of a purpose built device, and judging from the pics, one device I wouldn't be anywhere near during it's test-firing, as it looks like it might just explode.

He could have legally made it with the 1st tube holding 3000psi, 2nd tube firing the projectile. Would get atleast 5 shots off with pretty high pressures.

Big bore air guns...it's a Korean thang.

It sounds like a prop for the next Antonio Banderas Desperado movie sequel.

I never understood why someone would want to fk up a perfectly good shotgun to try and make a novelty. I would never do that to one of mine.

But on a side note, OMFG I WANT ONE OF THOSE FMG-9 GUNS!!

I checked their site but it had no info. I wish I knew where to get one! It said it was made in 08 so it's been a few years maybe they are out now?????

It was my understanding that this was a one-off prototype kind of thing, and was never intended to be produced (darn!). Not sure where I came about that information, I just remember being bummed that I'd probably never be able to get one for myself, cause DAYUM!

never seen anything like this before thanks for the find, that is just incredible, I'll take two please!

That would be a great fit for a bug out bag. That electric guitar is pretty sweet to. reminds me of something you would see in Desperado.

I knew an old man that had a single shot 20ga cane. His son made it for him. It was at least semi-legal because the barrel was 22". Now, could it be a violation of conceled weapons laws? I don't know, but I thought it was cool.
