Black Pipe Shotgun – Noisy Cricket
The Noisy Cricket 12 ga. black pipe shotgun. This is not absolutely a safe thing to do so don’t do it…
This homemade and BATF legal shotgun was made mostly from black pipe and black pipe grade fittings. JB Weld was used to glue the components together. The breech plug is a press fit to the receiver pipe (JB welded into the receiver pipe) and supported by a spacer made from black pipe (also JB Welded in). The black pipe reducer fitting supports the spacer and is JB Welded to the receiver pipe. The butt stock pipe is JB Welded to the reducer fitting. All of the pipe thread joints were tightened with pipe wrenches when they were JB Welded.
This finished shotgun is never less than 26″ long when it’s a functional firearm and it can’t be made smaller without special tools.
Your state laws may prohibit owning or building this shotgun.
