I've never seen this weapon before, which is kind of a feat considering the amount of time I spend just looking up guns on the interwebs, can anyone tell me?
It appears to be some sort of shotgun:

I could not find any information on the website I got it from (militaryimages.net).

Don't know either but it sure does look like a Thompson on steroids.

Don't know for sure but I believe it is a launching device for 37mm flares/CS grenades for police use or possibly 40mm grenades fo military.

Rachen, don't encourage him.

Tear gas launcher. I believe that is South African.

Now come on man, lets not be so eager to smear mud on others.

I have had experiences with many, many creepy coincidences before, and I think that I would feel a little hurt if I had been called a liar.

Rachen, don't encourage him.
And what the heck is that supposed to mean?
Encourage me to draw more coincidental connections to what people say?
There is only once conclusion that can be drawn from the fact that they both said the same thing:
It really does look like an M1928 on steriods.
I was wondering if the chambers were too small, figures, since it's a tear gas launcher. But why would they need, oh, what is it? Seventeen shots? Seems like a bit too much metal for the effort.
But thanks for the information.

I could swear I saw that in a movie with Christopher Walkin, not Deer Hunter, one of those movies that they make over the weekend. It had different loads depending on the situation, or it may have just looked similar.

Yep, looks just like what Walken used in Dogs of War. Neat weapon, great movie.

It's a 25mm/1" tear-gas projector, built in the 1930s by the Manville Manufacturing Company of Pontiac, Michigan. I believe the movie "The Dogs of War" once showed one of these as being able to fire HE grenades of some sort, but that was pure Hollywoodism; they CAN fire the German 26mm flare cartridges, however.

Huh, I just watched the episode of Magnum PI that had the gun in a scene. (All For One)

You could build an idea for a movie around that idea:

Yep, on the abandoned sites near Oak Ridge nuclear facility the quail get really, really big; you'll see the security guards patroling the fences armed with those quail guns.

you're all wrong.

My father is a Gastroenterologist and he identified this after one second of looking at it.

It is an automatic suppository dispenser. They have a few in the office that they use for patients that are a P.I.T.A.
