Mag fed shotguns have been around for decades, but they were hard to find. Not anymore. Now you can upgrade your pump-action shotgun, find a suitably AR style shotgun, or take a hint from Owen Zastava Pitt and run an AK style semi-automatic shotgun.
The AA12 auto assault shotgun was designed by former Marine Corps machine-gunner Maxwell G. Atchisson — it initially used a modified Browning BAR mag!
The ATF is reportedly confiscating AA12 "sledgehammer" shotguns (the semi-auto version) and possibly some fully-auto weapons as well. They've provided letters explaining why, though (not surprisingly) it's a bit hard to understand how a semi-auto gun can be a machinegun.
