Heavily modified, break-action, single barrel shotgun. Sawn off and tooled up with additional blades for brutal close combat.
The Romero 77 was not only utilitarian, but also robust. Once shortened, however, the weapon was found to lack an edge in close quarters. To compensate for this, perhaps too much, some owners would affix a hatchet blade to the barrel of the weapon. This would be complimented with an extended stock, both balancing the weight and granting a larger graspable surface.
