Logged on to Gun Broker today... an add jumped up for a 12 gauge pistol... it stayed up for a minute or two... then disappeared... it had a link to a subscription, which I signed up for... and then it just went away??? I think the company was AEG out of Minnesota... Anyone familiar with this outfit??

It's the AGC Diablo 12 gauge pistol.
American Gun Craft.

AGC is correct... thanks ... are these black powder only??? Asking because they say they can ship direct without FFL....

... well, BP only.... that ends that.... thought this may be a bit upgrade from the Taurus Judge... wonder if this could be produced legally.... I think the only difference would be in the caliber... there would bound to be buyers for this kind of gun.... gheezzzzz..... well, it probably wouldn't kick any more than some of the super caliber pistols.... like the Desert Eagles and some of those .50's.... there's always folks that still subscribe to the "bigger is better" philosophy.... I've always felt being able to hit what you shoot at is much more important than the size of the bullet... but what do I know.... :coffee:

Even being only BP , it's still pretty sweet. I had a BP sxs 12ga. that was fun to shoot but , it did have a right stout recoil. I would imagine this does too. My Bond Arms .45/410 Derringer has a lot of recoil so I bet this is about the same. It still would be cool to own. :pistol:

The ads indicate a standard load of 1/2 oz of shot.
That's about 218 grains.
Less than a .45 ACP slug.

That looks like a fun thing to have.

It would be more of a novelty, though, than a practical tool. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
