Pancor Jackhammer: The Jackhammer is a 12-gauge automatic shotgun design that was developed in the 1980s but never actually made it into production.
Pancor entered bankruptcy when they could not obtain U.S. State Department approval for foreign sales. Only a few working prototypes were ever built.
Nevertheless, the fully-automatic capabilities and the futuristic stylings make this an interesting firearm and worth profiling.
The shotgun is almost fully manufactured from plastic and is classed as a blow-forward automatic revolver. The shotgun feeds from a 10-round revolver-style magazine. The gas from each shot pushes the barrel forwards, allowing magazine to rotate the next round into firing position as a return spring pushes the barrel back to mate with the magazine.
The magazine can also be detached and, with a detonator added, used as an antipersonnel mine called the Beartrap with all rounds in the magazine being fired straight upwards into the combatant stepping on it.
