I don't recall ever reading anything about this, so I'll ask with a little trepidation: Does anyone know if there was a specific model of side-by-side shotgun, toy shotgun or double-barrelled rifle that was used as a reference for the SSG?

Or was it purely based on id's imagination and the generic image of a sawn-off shotgun (to be fair, most of them look pretty identical to the non-gun aficionado, unless you're comparing antique ones with hammers and more modern hammerless models)?

Most likely the one from Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness.

AFAIK the whole set of sprites for the arsenal were based on toys, for example the plasma rifle was based off part of a little toy gun that could be detached from it, the SG was based off a toy shotgun for kids and I can't remember the rest.

You know, I was watchign EDII the other day, and the first person scenes... Well, I wouldn't be surprised if the Doom 2 SSG was digitized right out of the movie for it's standard sprite. For the rest I dunno. Maybe they just got the same kinda gun of course.

I remember John commenting on his forums a long while back that the rocket launcher was based off the shotgun sprite, and the BFG was a toy gun with some shit glued to it. I think both sides of the BFG are mirrored.
