Wow, looks like a 12 year old put it together in shop class. I'd pass on firing it but have never seen any thing like it.

I have seen pics of similar rifles hand built from scrap in PNG where firearms are illegal and very difficult to obtain.

Look pretty rough but enough to win any argument when the other guy only has a spear / bow and arrow

Yes, at the National Infantry Museum, Fort Benning Georgia. They had quite a nice collection of improvised weapons used in Vietnam and a few other conflicts. The one you posted would be quite "sophisticated" by comparison to some of those examples.

Machine guns are awesome until you have to carry one.
