Steyr had a SABOT firing assault rifle back in the 90s i wonder if you could get that on a shot gun licence.

On the subject of the Mauser C/96.......

Would this set up have been much use against attacking enemy Aircraft In WW-1?

The earliest aerial engagements were pilots blatting rounds at each other with pistols so that looks like a step up. Must have been fun to reload.

The Italians had the Villar-Perosa set up which was basically 2 SMGs. Used by Sean Connery in one of the Indian Jones films.

Steyr ACR had a rifled barrel 1:85 according to Ian MCullom at 7.44 in the video above. Even if it had a smooth bore barrel, it’d still be Section 5 as it has burst fire capability ie
‘any firearm which is so designed or adapted that two or more missiles can be successively discharged without repeated pressure on the trigger;’

... and the ammunition would be at least Section 1!

I don't have the address to hand, but there is a dealer over here who sell's surplus flechettes by the pound/lb. Allegedly it is old Vietnam era surplus stock.
