The question is how large is the bullet?

Actually a 12 gauge is .748 inch and 18.99mm

The Bolter standard caliber is .75 so 12 gauge is really close to the real thing.

Too bad most artists that drawn WH40K art have no sense of scale.

12 gauge deer shot slugs would make some pretty decent bolter rounds id say.

I bet the recoil from that will give you forearms like that of a serial masturbator.

I was maybe able to build a chainsword which doesn't really have all the details and such, but this is just too much for me...someone else has to accept the challenge :(

It is. They later reused the same gun for Firefly. The stock and barrel are folded up on top of the gun.

Description

Yesterday I was wandering aimlessly and look what I found. It was used in a movie from 2002 called 'Showtime'. It appears to be some sort of custom SAIGA-12 =) It may not be a 40k bolter, but it is pretty damn close.

more shots of it: Google.bg
