Winchester Liberator Mark II

Anyone know anything about this gun? Is it real, experimental, or what?

Experimental four barrelled military shotgun, 30 or 40 years ago.

There is a whole subchapter on the Liberator and its decendant, the Defender, in The World's Fighting Shotguns by Thomas F. Swearengen. Very interesting series of shotguns designed to be used by indigenous peoples in the guerilla wars going on at the time (1960s). Designed by Robert Hillberg, a prolific inventor of firearms IIRC.
