Had a Streetsweeper, around early 90s, there was another similar, might have been called a "Striker". Think they were all 12 ga.

They had a cylinder like a revolver, but it was BIG! Trigger pull rotated the cylinder (drum) and fired double-action like. All of a sudden Clinton's Treasury Secretary, Lloyd Bentsen, came on National T-V, holding a Streetsweeper, saying they were the weapon of choice of street gangs, and therefore the gov't. was declaring them a "destructive device", and anyone having one suddenly became a criminal!

Such is the un-Constitutional and illegal way in which our leaders have chosen to operate.

Are they legal or not?

THey are legal if you pay for a AOW.
My purpose of the thread was, to show that banning one particular firearm by calling it by some illegal name, even though un-Constitutional as hell, the move flies! And, with of all things, a SHOTGUN!

Now, why not pick another, if you were a gun-grabbing political leader in high position?

And another? And so on. See, no public uproar followed the banning of the Streetsweeper; in fact, lots of people seemed to agree the guns were "evil".

Has anyone EVER seen a gang member carrying one of these things?

never seen a gangbanger carry a shotgun. mostly just "pistols" turned sideways. I think my Benelli will shoot faster than the sweeper and put a tube extender and wah-lah same # of rnds.

Saw a 410/45 called a street sweeper on gunbroker for $2,000 had the drum like the 12s but not a class III weapon.

That is certainly one reason we should all reframe from referencing our AKs, SKSs, and ARs as "ASSAULT WEAPONS" - they are not assault weapons and that buzz word does not help us in the eyes of public opinion ... they are "sporting guns."
