Becker revolving shotgun - 16 gauge

The Becker revolving shotgun is a German revolving shotgun, which utilizes an unusual blow-forward action that feeds ammo via a revolving cylinder. Although designed in 1899, the shotgun would not be produced until the 1920s by the firm Römerwerk. The shotgun operates via blow-forward action, in which the barrel "blows-forward" about an inch every time the weapon is fired, which automatically ejects the spent shell in the process.

The Becker is chambered in 16 gauge and is fitted with a six-shell cylinder, which only holds five shells, with the sixth chamber intentionally plugged up. Because the weapon forces gas back to eject the empty shells, having the cylinder loaded with six shells would cause a live shell to be ejected after the first shot. Because of this design, only the first four shells are automatically ejected and the last shell must be manually unloaded via an ejector rod.

Originally designed for hunting, it is believed that approximately 100 or even less Becker shotguns were manufactured.

The Becker revolving shotgun and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:
