Is such a thing even doable? Would there be any advantages?
The action could possibly be built to more retard-proof standards, might allow for custom shells to be loaded easier?
Aside from that, not much really. Pump action shotguns are already built like a brick shithouse and a decent mossy or remmy can eat anything you put in it.
that's the dumbest looking shotgun I've ever seen.
yes, bolt action shotguns exist. literally just fucking google bolt action shotgun. it would have taken less time than making this thread.
My dad had one when I was a kid. He traded it and a little .22 and a snowthrower to my uncle in exchange for helping do a bathroom remodel. Three rounds of 12 gauge, and a huge long barrel. Dad used it for duck hunting a few times.

There is a huge difference between things like the GEHA shotguns from pre-WWII and the slugs guns made today. The older guns were usually exports products made from an action already in production or from converting existing guns.
The Mossbergs and Savages came about for similar reasons, with Mossberg not being able to use twin action bars in a pump until 1970 due to Remington's patents and Savage already having the abilty to cheaply make bolt guns.
The modern slug guns are usually rifled and are designed to shoot a saboted slug. They exist because laws are gay.
Pic is GEHA.
I found that odd, but I turn it down when I need to drop a boresnake weight from the chamber end without the action closing from gravity.
I paid $150, but the wood is immaculate and it had barely been fired. I gave it to my wife for her first gun.
Don't listen to these guys, bolt action shotguns are mechanically impossible. Since you're trying to use Shotgun Shot instead of Bolt Action Shot, the cartridge triggers the headspace gaps which gives the gun TOTAL gas misalignment, it would just blow up on your face, this is why it has never ever been successfully done.
