Just what are we looking at here?

I see a break action, over under rifle, with a detachable box magazine, that feeds from a gate on the side like a lever action.

Is that what you see?

Can anyone ID the rounds, it better be something obscure, or at least more than a dollar per round.

I think my brain leaked just a little....

Where did you find this photo? It certainly looks like a custom job, but could very well be a joke as well. I'm quite curious.

It's possible the upper barrel is for a shotgun round, hence the break open, but the lower barrel is for rifle rounds. That's what would make the most sense to me. It breaks open to reload the shotgun but the rifle is actually a semi-auto or pump-action and that opening is the ejection port. If that's the case, it's probably a common rifle caliber. Possibly .243 or .270, by the look of it.

I think it's photoshopped.

I think it started as a picture of an O/U shotgun, and had elements added.

I see no indication of a repeating action. The receiver isn't long enough to house a recoil action, and there are no levers or bolt handles. It COULD be pump action, but there's no gap behind the handguard, pulling it back would block the ejection port. It COULD be in the rearward position already, but then one would expect to see a bolt in the rearward position as well.

Frankly, i see no way for any part of this gun to function as a repeating arm, so i strongly suspect the image it faked. To what end? I have no idea.

ETA just noticed the black patch under the handguard, coul be a pump handle. But there's an awful lot of "Why?" and "How?" in the picture still...

Deleted.

ETA: I'd say it's shopped. Well.

One thing is for sure, it has some fancy wood and a high dollar scope. It looks badass, can't figure out what's with the side gate though....

The main thing that looks to be a telltale sign that it's shopped is it has what looks to be a fiber optic front site, but no site post in the rear, which means it's a shotgun, not a rifle.

Unless it's a .410, shells won't fit in that side port, and even then it's pushing it.

there appears to be a rear sight about half way down the barrel

I was really hoping it was real, but if no ones seen it before, then its probably a shoop

I think it's real, just very odd. I believe the forearm doubles as a pump, and that port is an ejection port. It appears to me to be a single-shot shotgun over a pump-action rifle.

It's an Innogun hybrid pump action/single shot double rifle.

What a crazy, wonderful idea! Sure looks expensive! :)

Good find, Makster. Looks like I called it. The upper barrel can either be a rifle or a shotgun. It's interchangeable. Nice-looking gun, although I honestly can't see much of a use for one. Looks heavy.

I wanted one till I saw the price

$6142.67 for a 12ga/.30-06

Maybe when I win the lottery

That's actually priced less than what I expected it to be. I can't afford it, but yeah, pretty cool firearm.

For that price I'd rather just buy a Baikal 12 gauge / .30-06. Sure, it's not a repeater, but it's also around 1/10 the price and only 8.5 pounds.

Not sure what it is but it's ugly enough to be from Blaser Jadgwaffen.
You don't have to win a lottery just look for good ole Finnish Tikka Combinati. If you're lucky it may come with spare O/U rifle and smooth-bore barrel sets and still be way blow what this gun is priced at. While those tend to be heavy they feature excellent French designed fastening system just like ole' Remington 32/3200 or Krieghoff series O/U of guns.
