What would it take to own an 870 like that thats mountable to an AR weapon system? SBR registration?

think that would take an AOW tax (which is similar to sbr) and a lot of wheaties

If you purchased the 12 ga. that came without the stock and already had a short barrel the Tax would be $5.00 and it would be classified as an AOW. If YOU took an 870 and removed the stock and shortened the barrel then the Tax would be $200.00 and it would be classified as an SBS. Mounting it to your AR really doesn't effect it's classification. The Tax has to be paid on the shorgun.

Forearms like http://re2.mm-a1.yimg.com/image/320324922 to carry it around

Mad Dog is correct, but keep in mind the cost of an AOW shotgun is typically $200 higher than the cost of the shotgun that you would SBS. Whoever made the AOW has to recoop the tax they paid.

KAC's Masterkey Shotgun, very similar to what you have displayed, used to be available through Cal's Sporting Armory, if you were lucky enough to get them. The photos have since been taken down, but it is worth a call.

I see no problem with that weapon.

Oh look, a fake masterkey. A bad idea made worse.

There's a reason the military doesn't use those anymore.

The difference between a Rem 870 that is registered as an AOW and a Rem 870 that is registered as an SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun) is that the AOW can not have (and can never have had) a stock attached. AOW’s are not shoulder fired weapons. If you attach an 870 AOW to an AR-15 then the buttstock of the AR-15 is now the buttstock of the 870 and you now have an unregistered SBS. If you want a Masterkey you need to use an SBS not an AOW. An SBS can have a stock or no stock.

As far as NFA tax goes, it costs $200 for you as an individual to Form 1 (manufacture) an AOW or an SBS. Once registered, any future transfer of the AOW (on a Form 4) is $5 while transfers of the SBS are still $200. You can send your regular old 870 to an SOT and he can convert it to an AOW (tax free) and then transfer it to you for $5.

Personally, I would pass on the Masterkey. Looks cool, but too heavy and throws the balance off. Just carry an AOW slung on your back.

This is just my opinion. I would rather have a M203 instead of the shotgun.

I'd rather have my Benelli M1S90 separate as a backup.

I think i remember seeing a 12 ga adapter for a 40mm M203. that way you can go both 12ga and 40mm with the same weapon.

If you are thinking about buying a 870 and then paying $200 tax stamp to make it a SBS, then in my mind it would be a lot more cost effective to just buy one with a pistol grip and a 18" barrel and take the money you saved and buy more ammo.

Just my .02

Its just the cool factor...It would probably be better to get the 40mm and buy Shivaks shotgun adapter to shoot 40mm shotgun rounds lol....BOOM ..."Where did he go?" "Ewwwww...."
