Double-Barrel Shotgun

(Redirected from Double-barreled shotgun)

Description[edit]

The Double-Barrel Shotgun varies from the common pump-action version in that it features two side-by-side barrels instead of one. Each barrel holds one shell and may be fired individually or simultaneously, however the weapon also takes longer to reload as a new shell must be placed manually into each barrel.[1]

The stock and a portion of the barrel can be removed from a double-barrel shotgun in order to shave off a kilogram of weight. These "sawed-off" shotguns however suffer from greater inaccuracy and half as much range as unaltered models.[1]
