This weapon was loosely inspired by the objectively terrible Russian TOZ-106 bolt-action shotgun, which may be familiar to players of the videogame Escape from Tarkov. Unlike its inspiration, however, this weapon is chambered in 12-gauge – taking advantage of the fact that the rim of a .50 BMG cartridge is dimensionally very similar to that of a 12-gauge shell. It wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that some resourceful Wastelander found a broken Anti-Materiel Rifle and adapted it to fire shotshells as a last-ditch survival weapon.
I started with the base game Anti-Materiel Rifle mesh and removed the buttstock and scope. I then shortened the barrel, receiver, and bolt, adding the magazine from the 25mm Grenade APW from the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC, the front sight from the .44 Magnum Revolver, and a folding stock made using parts from the legacy-content Chinese Assault Rifle from Fallout 3.
