Seamless black pipe is the way to go. It adds a little more weight, but will keep you safer. Also flute the ID open-end from being a sharp edge, don't want to trip the 12ga pellets exiting either.

I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. I think this is more likely blow your hand away than the opponent. I must thank the builder for his caution but clearly, this thing equally dangerous to the user and the one at the receiving end.

i agree with Frank. To use galvanized pipe is an extremely dangerous thing to do. That said this is a great build. if i were to add any improvements it would be simply to use another pipe with known tolerances for pressure. Then make sure my shot-shells were rated for that. This would probably be a relatively simple upgrade. once again, great build.

I'm sorry if this offends some, but I find this sort of DIY dangerous to attempt and should only be considered as a last ditch effort for survival. the use of galvanized pipe in any firearm is an invitation for disaster. Even though as stated shotshells are relatively low pressure they still have the potential to do extensive damage. It was however a well documented build even it it is a IMHO a dangerous one
