Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.forgottenweapons.com
I have a number of interesting custom guns, and I figured it would be fun to do videos on a couple of them…let me know if you enjoys this and would like to see more like this!
Today’s example is what I call my Remington Auto-8. It’s a recreation of the FN Police Model Auto-5. Those guns were standard Auto-5 actions made with longer 8-round magazine tubes and full-length hand guards. The most well-known purchase of them was by the Rhodesian military (probably through Portugal), but they were bought in small numbers by a variety of police and security organizations. A shotgun of this pattern was also a personal favorite of Charlie Askins.
Mine was done by the shotgun wizards at Vang Comp, with their barrel (12ga), a sling, shortened stock, and modernized Auto-5 lifter that allows one-handed loading. It still has the original safety in the trigger guard, but is otherwise a pretty capable tactical shotgun…and a heck of a head-turner at the range!

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
