Isn't that the double magazine-tube entry/PDW that is made in South Africa?

Dream on Snoman! That sweet, innovative piece of machinery will probably never be allowed to be imported here. What an idea though, huh? I recently was browsing some back issues and fell across the article. Quite a long barrel, although overall length was shorter than an 18" barrelled standard shotgun! Dual/twin magazines, which you could choose from, allowing one to carry two types of ammo for different situations, and being able to instantly change from one to the other. Whewiiiiieeee....I like it also! EricO

I was looking around and found the web site for Neostead. I was on Lycos and searched for "Neostead shotguns"

Shouldn't use those dinky search engines.

HotBot found it at http://users.iafrica.com/n/nj/njj741t/ .

Personally, I'm impressed enough to trade my Bren 10 for one (get that, Morg?). Unfortunately, the site indicates the models are still pre-production and not available for sale.

You need to lead a more charmed life. Following was the response I received to an invite to join us.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Hi Rich,

Thank you for your interest in the NS shotgun.[snipp]

Your site looks very comprehensive.

I will make a note of your email address and let you have our next news-update. This will probably be in early February.

Rich & Snoman: It would be nice if they were ever allowed to import them and they were available at a reasonable price; however, if I recall, the article I read about them stated they would be very expensive to produce in the current state (as the prototype.) This article was quite a long time ago, I'd hoped that they would have come up with a cheaper way of manufacturing them for the production models by now! Not to rain on the parade, but I'm not holding my breath. I love the concept, and wouldn't be surprised if US Law enforcement agencies and the military looked into it if it gets past pre-production stages. EricO

I've seen a few nice pieces from the SA's over the years at Trade shows. They make a bunch of neat stuff that I've never seen for sale in the US.

Too Bad.

One thing I noticed in looking at the Neostad Website is that listed feature "reversed pump action." One thing I have often thought,but not talked about much, is the tendancy of the chambering of a roundin a pump must pull the gun off of your shoulder, at least to some extant. I thought about this as on emore advantage that the semi has over the pump. It occured to me first during competition, while shooting some fast doubles on a sporting clays range. Recoil seemed much more punishing for some reason. I theorized it was because the butt was not firmly against my shoulder a the instant of firing, which was as soon as I could physically manage after chambering.
Shotguns like the M37, which allow you to just hold the trigger down and pump away, would be even worse in this respect.
I like the idea of pushing back to chamber a round, maybe I'll get to try it out someday.

Seems the NS push-pump was predated by the Simmerling(sp?) LM4 .45acp, in which the slide was manualy cycled forward to xtract, eject & rechamber the rounds from the box mag.
