It's a punt gun.

Right first time!

But even for a punt gun, it is unusual. More to come soon-- LOTS more.

Oh, and 20 ounces a barrel. And neither a poacher's gun nor a taker of huge bags...

You didn't change the image file name (or didn't change it enough.) All I needed was a hint and web fu does the rest ;)

Wonderful picture, and long may a few , specialist , intrepid 'fowlers ply the wild estuaries around the UK!!
Something I have never experienced,but I have seen them depart from Peter Scott's lighthouse at Sutton Bridge , and later return, counting them back like old time aircraft, as if the weather changes, it can be a very dangerous activity.Local knowledge of tides, sandbanks and weather is crucial, but,I suppose, mobile phones and improved rescue services have mediated the modern day risk a little!

I was going say that it was for duck hunting ,as joke...
It looked more like some thing for the Military would use.

With the drought I doubt there is water enough to float it!
