I couldn't resist the cute little bugger looks like too much fun I am thinking of cutting down the stock to a half stock or maybe a pistolgrip.

i knew you would!!!!! was it the century?
cutting down the stock.  that's what gangsters in the 20's used to do, they called it a "whippet" gun.
tell us how the thing shoots.

My dealer has a 12 gauge coach gun distributed by Stoeger. If'n I had the money I would buy it ($280). It actually has some nice looking stocks on it too.

I just had to do it for that price, i got the one with the exposed hammers and 2 triggers,
do you think I should cut the stock down to a full pistolgrip or a half stock? only thing is I have to wait 10 days!

Whats this wippet gun you speak of sounds like a fun project.

this one is actually a norico.

damn, that was a very quick progression from the inquiry stage to the actual purchase. At least it helps me validate my own pseudo-spontaneous gun purchases.

actually it was called a whippet because you could "whippet" out, not sure where the name originally came from but clyde barrow of bonnie and clyde fame had a browning auto 5 or similar auto shotgun that he cut about half of the stock off of and tacked a leather strap to, so he could hang it under his arm and "whip it" up to his shoulder, of course, the barrel was cut down right to the mag tube, making it illegal, but he left just enough stock to get "some" control.

Yeah you should have seen the salesman's face I ask can I checkout the coach gun? check it out and 1 minute later I ask if we can start on the paper work he was kinda suprised, guess he thought I was a looky lu.

Be real careful cutting it down. Overall length must be 26" or more. Sometimes cutting them down to just a pistol grip will come up a little short. Just an FYI.

Keep the stock length, it is already short enough to hold a guy by the collar and hold the gun in his face!

I'd vote to keep the stock as well.  I've seen alot more people subdued by the stock of an entry gun than from out its barrels.  A pistol grip just doesn't a baton make.  

Unless your primary goal is concealability, stick with the longer stock.

Looks good. Remember, the lighter you make it, the harder its gonna kick

Oh I forgot, now you need a trench coat with special pocket for it

I have the Bikal coach gun, it is great fun, shoots pretty good for such a short barrel.

I just turned my coach gun in to have a recoil pad fitted.  I shoot mainly slugs, and, well, I think I just might enjoy shooting it more if it didn't bruise me so damn much...

I think you are wrong it is 26" overall in California.

I believe there is an ATF ruling that would let you cut ONE of the barrels to less than 16".

That would look really cool.

The hammers drop doesn't hit the firing pins do they?  Aren't the internal pins more coventional?

Validation? I cant get enough validation to deal with my own RRP (rapid response purchases). My dealer made it worse by encouraging my RRP participation in his ez layaway plan.

I stopped by to kick tires this am, I have this sitting here looking at me......

And I STILL want a coach gun!

Have fun.

If I recall correctly the "whippet" name for cut down shotguns comes from the Whippet breed of dog, a scaled down or toy Greyhound.

It looks like the one bunghole posted I think it would be pretty cool with a half stock or a pistol grip they are really quite short to begin with and after cutting them down they could be really concelable.

Cut the barrels down so they are flush with the ends of the shells.

Since I know you are being facetious, I won't even touch upon the illegality of that action.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to imagine exactly how huge the pattern would be with 7 1/2 birdshot...

And if, hypothetically, someone DID cut the barrels down to the chamber, should that person then also cut the stock down to the pistol grip, or is that asking for a broken wrist?
