I finally got around to making the additions to my Toy Soldier Vietnam Set to make him look like a proper shotgunner. Added shells and grenades. Made a patch so that he was from the 25th Infantry Division (I like that patch). Hope you enjoy.

A good-looking shotgunner. Your semi-auto combat shotgun may be a bit more recent than Vietnam-period. The SEALs had a special full-auto Remington (11-48 I think), but slide-actions (pumps) were the ones most used by all services.



The above are shotguns that were in US military inventories from WW1 thru Vietnam. I had a Model 11 with US Ordnance markings like the one shown above, and the Models 1897 (OJI has some nice ones loose under Yamato) and 12 (the "Barney" shotgun mentioned by others) Winchesters were trooping on still. The Ithaca was a favorite of SEALs (various versions available in onesix by 21C). I remember seeing pics of Army troops carrying the Stevens, which I've fired (sturdy, but slow cycling). The 870 Remington pump was popular with police, and reportedly also used in Vietnam (several versions around in 1/6, by DML).

21C's SEAL Pointman had a Model 37 Ithaca with extended magazine and a muzzle "duckbill" device.

Your shotgunner would make a good pointman for a patrol or a unit moving into badguyland.
