I had an M79 out at a friends land shooting buckshot rounds and smoke grenades through it just about all day. I really enjoyed that gun.

They have adapters to make it accept 12ga shells, and I've seen one that fires (I think) 15x.22lr rounds at once. That's pretty damn awesome.

EDIT: It kind of looks awkward, compared to most single-barrel shotguns I've seen. Does it transfer energy better with the stock like that, or if I made a more conventional style stock for it, would it not be comfortable? Why in the hell hasn't someone made one in a side-by-side double barrel? That would be tits!

Give me a dollar.

You're just mad someone doesn't make an adapter to shoot a bunch of 10mm rounds out of it.

Give me a dollar.

Nigga prease. Who needs a grenade launcher when they've got a 10mm Auto?

Question

Where can you get one of those? Does it require a tax stamp? How much are they running?

A few are for sale on the NFA boards.

These are registered destructive devices and do require you following typical NFA rules.

M79s built on GI receivers typically run for $8k, ones built on aftermarket receivers are in the $5k range.

You can also put them together and Form 1 them such as I did. I pieced this one together with a NOS GI receiver and have about $5k in it.
