I know you were outside catching scary weapons like the rest of us, but throw that one back.

Ithaca M37 with an "abbreviated" shoulder stock would be my guess.

He might have some substance. The gun might be really rusted, so when it is shot it blows up, thereby earning the trap title.

I told him to cut it in half and trash it or let the cops deal with it. Who knows if a body is attached to that thing

Go fire it in the air, see how loud it is, and if it works.

It's a variation of a "whippet" gun. Often carried slung from the shoulder under a coat, if the SHTF, you would "whip it" out to save your butt.

Is the barrel at least 18 inches long? Is the overall length greater than 26(I think) inches? (Has to be BOTH)

If it meets those dimensions, it's not illegal, but might be stolen. The cops would probably appreciate some clue as to where it came from. Be a good citizen and call them.

Or, if the barrels too short/or you don't want involved with the cops. Take off the barrel and sell what's left to a gunsmith or buy new parts and rebuild to legal configuration.

Just some ideas, you do as you feel right.
