lol who the fuck was that made for, Paul Bunyan?
For shooting at Paul Bunyan.
kingjackhammer has it right, it's a punt gun, meant to be strapped to a boat.
It's less the largest shotgun, and more the smallest piece of naval artillery.
I think a candiate for if not largest shotgun, then large shotgun that has actually been used in service would be the Russian KS-23, at least the original barrels were made from rejected 23mm barrels for anti-aircraft guns, is a 4-gauge by European measurements, a 6-gauge by US standards. And techincally it's a "carbine" because the barrel is rifled (though the civilian version is a smoothbore)
Then there's the Nock Gun, several musket barrels welded together as a English Navy as an anti-boarding device, like a portable mitrailleuse. Only a few of the Royal Navy's largest, heaviest, and craziest could fire it without dislocating their shoulder. When fired down from the rigging it tended to set the sails on fire.
Scaled-down reproductions are popular.

Not sure why they even bothered to put a stock on the back of that thing

I bet you could teach an elephant to load and fire it.
