Classic break-action shotgun with a long barrel. Decent power, range, and attached blades for close combat make this a very flexible weapon to bring along.
The Romero 77 was predominantly a sportsman's gun. As such, a key quality was its lightweight barrel. While suited to shooting game, where quick reflexes and deft accuracy are required, when adapted for use as a melee weapon, the barrel was ill-suited to the task. Modifications made to such weapons would often reinforce the butt of the shotgun, that being the most robust part. Moreover, some examples show that in addition to structural reinforcement, additional blades were also added to the rear of the weapon. This would make it a particularly lethal and vicious club.
