Looks nice and the vent rib on a short barrel looks cool too. Cut it down yourself?

Thanks, I have done some in OD, But this is the first one in tan.

Might get some black stocks for it, or not , it is starting to grow on me.

Oh well, it is for Sale anyway, so I guess it dosen't mater.

Change the stocks. The gun appeals to two different sets of buyers due tac look with wood stocks.

Out of curiosity, how much were you trying to get for it?
Link Posted: 12/3/2005 8:26:21 PM EST
That looks good. Was it hard to do? I've got a 9200 that is in serious need of a paint job.

$350.00 and it is not hard, but very time consuming.

sniper tab?

Would Moly Resin work with the plastic on the trigger guard?

IMO, the wood on tan looks great but I think black synthetics would look really odd unless you're looking for high contrast.
I imagine a chromed or jeweled bolt would look awesome on that for some reason- maybe it's the wood and vent rib.

Nice work with the cut down and choke addition!

Thanks, and About the Trigger guard, I would think it would be fine, but I have never done one, I like the way they look with it black.

I agree, but I think it looks sweet just as it is.

you mentioned a screw in Choke? how did you manage to thread the barrel? i've been thinking of putting a choke on a 18" barrel but dident know if it could be done at home or if i needed a gunsmith to do it..

If you need to see more coatings on shotguns iron ridge arms co does ceramic coating and Dupont Teflon high tech gun finishs. As well as camo jobs, they have some great colors to chose from.

Cut, Face, Ream, And Thread.
You need a mill or a lathe.

Sweet shotgun

What is the barel length on it?

19", because it is a vent rib BBL, you have to cut at one of the blocks on the rib.

And Thanks for the complement

Where did you get the vent rib barrel? How much do you charge to cut on down like that and put a choke in it?

Thanks!

The Barrel came on the gun, they are not that hard to find, however, they are overpriced most of the time.

The price to cut down, face, reem, and thread, with one choke included is $80.00, plus shipping.

Also, it is $16.00 per choke, for any extra chokes.

Can you find me a barrel, and do it all for me? Thanks!

I don't have an extra barrel right now but I pick them up quite often.

The price would be the same, plus the cost of the barrel.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 7:51:32 AM EST
Let me know when you pick one up....I'd like one!
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 9:26:16 AM EST
Hey Bandit,

That looks pretty sweet. I think it may have looked even better with the wood if you had used Coyote Brown?

Curious, does using a vent rib barrel on a "tactical" shot gun add any major benefits or major downsides?

Thanks

The Brown Moly Resin would look good, but I did not have any.

No downsides IMO, and I like the sight picture better, not to mention, it looks COOL.
