What happens to the firearms of sentenced or dead criminals that were found on said criminal at the time of Police encounter?
Do Police Departments dismantle them or eventually give them to Gunshops, (if said weapon can be legally purchased in the first place), to re-sell?

True, DMR is a thing. On paper they are specced for like 600-700m effective range.
EDIT: Actually that’s enough for police snipers, so I guess you can have a 556 sniper rifle after all.

556 doesn’t have enough range to be a cartridge for a “sniper” weapon. You can build a 556 gun that is more accurate and has a scope or an LPVO, but the range will be limited anyway by bullet drop and the transonic barrier. This is why the military does not bother, as far as I know. Only hobbyists play with this kind of thing.

The picture shows the M79 grenade launcher, not a modded shotgun. Its author probably wanted to say that you load it like a break-action shotgun.
I notice an occasional trend in Shooter Games where Shotguns can be modified into dedicated Grenade Launchers and other crazy heavy cannon type weapons.
Games have to balance weapons and make them fun. (Unless they are meant to be realistic military simulators.)
I haven’t heard of people modding shotguns into grenade launchers. But IIRC earlier in this thread someone linked a firework launcher, very similar to a grenade launcher, that was meant to be made from scratch. I guess it was easier to make it from scratch than to mod a shotgun.

I also found this presentation which kinda reinforces that idea:
Are Shotguns actually the most mod-able long gun type IRL?
In terms of changing the core function of the base firearm entirely instead of adding attachments, the latter of which is the case with Rifles.

Joan Parks

Does anybody know what gun Joel had on the 5th episode of the last of us?
As a fan of The Last of Us, I can say that the guns in the game are one of the most exciting and interesting parts of the gameplay. From pistols and shotguns to assault rifles and sniper rifles, there’s a huge variety of different firearms available to the player, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses.
What I love about the guns in The Last of Us is that they feel so realistic and true to life. The game developers clearly put a lot of effort into making sure that the weapons behave realistically, with accurate recoil, reload times, and other features that make each gun feel distinct and unique. To research more about this theme I usually go on this web site which helps me a lot.
Overall, if you’re a fan of guns and you haven’t played The Last of Us yet, I highly recommend checking it out. Whether you’re a fan of pistols, shotguns, or assault rifles, there’s something for everyone in this game, and the gunplay is just one of the many things that makes it such a memorable and exciting gaming experience.
