It is the 12" model, my ex-girlfriend bought it for me and she said she had some custom work done on it. It is not listed on the site (obviously the stock on the site is plankwood and mine is almost exactly like an M79) she said that they used the "extreme parts" because they had a sale to some military for crowd control so this one is meant to handle the "nasty rounds" (that's what the guy told my ex I guess). It is marked as SML-37. So I think it is a semi-custom job. She said it took a month or two to build and get.

Honestly I think it is really cool, we were going to shoot fireworks on the 4th of July with it... but then she cheated on me and I don't really want it around anymore and I don't really want cash for it. Thus the trade.

She made sure it was the closest thing to the "big gun from Terminator 2" (she knew I was fond of it) - if only she was as good at staying faithful as she is good at getting awesome semi-custom products.

Nope, was going to use it for the 4th of July, but relationship ended before then. Never bought the ammo (not very rare and easily reloadable) and never used it. Brand new in box.

Estimated value? Any ideas on how to pitch it to the wife? Some how (I have had this for years). Will not work on this one!

Estimated value: I really don't know to be honest, I would put it in the ballpark of the $600-900 range. If I ever go on talking terms with my ex again I will ask (it's custom work and is not listed on the website).

Truthfully, it is a great thing to have; you can launch fireworks for fun (if legal where you live), you can launch flares for help, it looks really awesome, etc. It would be very beneficial to anyone who has a boat or goes camping.

That's just what's in stock and around right now, there's plenty of places that sell a variety of 37mm rounds/adapters.
