The Crossfire combination gun is an American combination gun.

HistoryEdit

The Crossfire was first seen as the Crossfire Model 88 at the 1989 SHOT Show, where a lot of orders were placed for the Model 88; unfortunately, the Model 88 never materialized and remained a prototype. The first weapons began appearing on the market 10 years later, in 1998, with the first weapons being offered for sale in 1999; each weapon had a market price of $1895, which was very high for a weapon of its type. The Crossfire was a commercial failure, with glaring reliability problems, frequent jams and misfeeds, leading to the weapon's short life and eventual discontinuation in 2001; the weapon's discontinuation also caused Crossfire to go out of business.

Design DetailsEdit

The Crossfire Model 88 had a semi-automatic rifle and a pump-action shotgun but never materialized. The production weapon, the Mk 1, was pump-action only. The weapon is fed by STANAG magazines inserted into the lower magazine well, and by a removable tube magazine fed inserted into the rear of the receiver. The Mk 1 had a switch on the left side of the receiver to switch between firing the shotgun and the rifle portions. The weapon's manual advises the owner of the weapon against field-stripping the weapon, and instead should be disassembled by a trained armorer at Crossfire or a qualified gunsmith.
