* The [[https://www.mossberg.com/category/series/590-shockwave/ Mossberg Shockwave]] is a pump-action gun with a 14-inch factory barrel, and is not considered a Class 3/NFA gun in that configuration, meaning it does not require a federal tax stamp. Of course, it still might not be compliant with some states' gun laws, and putting any other type of rear stock on one ''will'' turn it into a Class 3 weapon.

Of course, it still might not be compliant with some states' gun laws, and it only skates by the ATF's rules in that specific configuration; putting any other type of rear stock on one without first swapping out for a longer barrel ''will'' turn it into a Class 3 weapon.

* Sawn off shotguns are [[UsefulNotes/AustralianGunPolitics are banned in Australia]] since the firearms legislation was revised in 1996 in the aftermath of the Port Arthur Massacre. However, some sawn off shotguns still remain in private hands due to not being registered even prior to 1996 and registering them afterwards leads to confiscation of the gun. One such shotgun was used in the deadliest terrorist attack on Australian soil in 2014.

* Oddly enough, short-barreled shotguns are not restricted in Canada, so long as the barrel is factory-made and the total length of the gun is 30 or more inches. Cutting the barrel off yourself, on the other hand, can carry prison time.

* Sawed-off shotguns were used extensively in trench warfare during the first World War by the United States; according to the other wiki, one Sergeant in particular managed to [[OneManArmy single-handedly retake a French town from German control]] using only such a shotgun. The Germans, who deployed gas weapons and flamethrowers, considered the use of shotguns a war crime, even declaring that they'd execute any soldiers captured who used one (America responded that they'd do the same to any German POW's that were issued submachine guns). [[note]]:Actually, German officers (who were mostly aristocrats) thought the shotgun to be a weapon suited only to hunt animals, so they took killing their soldiers with a shotgun as an act of equaling them to animals[[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'', the Ranger is a sawed-off double barreled shotgun. You can even DualWield them. The Winchester 1887 also shows up in similar form to the ''Terminator 2'' version, and can also be used akimbo.
* The preceding ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World at War'' has a double-barreled shotgun that starts off at full size, but its unique attachment option is sawing down the barrel, increasing damage at the cost of wider spread. It also shows up in sawed-off form in one of its two campaign appearances.



* A sawed-off double-barreled shotgun makes a rather surprising appearance in ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World At War'', as a one-time pickup in campaign mode (found in an abandoned insane asylum of all places) and as a variation of the standard double-barreled shotgun in multiplayer.
** A further-sawed-down shotgun returned in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'', with the added bonus of allowing the player to [[GunsAkimbo carry two at once]] (that is, of course, if [[AwesomeButImpractical accuracy]] doesn't concern you much).
*** Modern Warfare 2 also sports a [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} sawed-off lever action shotgun]], complete with flip-to-reload if you dual wield. [[GameBreaker For the longest time, these sawed-off Model 1887s were horribly broken]], and they're still a surefire sign of an [[Webcomic/PennyArcade unrepentant puppy rapist.]] There's also the KAC "Masterkey" shotgun (see Real Life), which can be unlocked to attach to your assault rifles. [[AwesomeButImpractical Not that anyone ever uses the Masterkey.]]

* The Near-Sighted Assassin from ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' uses one. Lynne even comments on how he's probably just trying to enforce the RuleOfCool by doing so, given that it's also a {{bling|BlingBang}}ed-out, lever-action weapon that really has no excuse for being used for an assassination.

* ''VideoGame/JaggedAlliance 2'' features the pump-action [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:My_Serbu.jpg Serbu Super-Shorty]], which comes factory-manufactured as a super-sized handgun. The description [[InvokedTrope invokes the trope]] by noting that it saves time-consuming hacksaw work. They are usually regarded as AwesomeButImpractical as backup weapons since smaller, lighter handguns like the [=FN Five-SeveN=] are much faster to draw and fire, and most players instead load them with a clip of [[ShootOutTheLock lockbuster rounds]] as an instant lockpick.
