Unfortunately they used a copy of a WWI/II era shotgun from the Dragon USMC set.

JW is right....that's a Winchester model 1897 pump action SG, and the chances of finding it in the hands of a member of the 101st during Desert Storm are about 0%. Such a shame...

You guys are right... Thanks for correcting me:



I wanted to change the shotgun on my figure with M16/203. It just looks better...

EDIT: I talked to Anar from Minisoldiers and he says he's going to fix the problem as soon as possible. I'll post more info when I receive it.
