Someone from Thailand sent us a video of one in action.
Like some suspected it is a plastic BB gun, but it’s been modified to fire a single shotgun shell, and we do mean single. After one shot the ultra-cheap weapon explodes and is basically useless. As we mentioned in the original article, Pradit guns like this are becoming increasingly common among poor gangsters in Thailand.
Although there are full metal models available, there is a black market built around converting pellet guns into simple but illegal pocket shotguns.
There’s also a version with an all metal reusable version below.
