Anything for a Remington 870?

What is the unloaded weight of the gun + mag and loaded weight of the gun + mag?

Does it come in 870?

Nice... for all those times when an additional 16 shells is needed over the 7 I already have...

Interesting design, I give them points for ingenuity. But damn, that would be one heavy shotgun!

Yup. Plus reloading will take an hour.

Yeah really... not to mention racking and shooting 23 rounds if they made it for an 870... or any pump.

I didn't see anything on the site for brands that they fit.

Pictures and videos have Benelli and 1100s though.

Oh indeed it would be, but could you imagine the amount of fun you could have
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 4:25:12 PM EST
Oh come on man.... That is the ultimate zombie shotgun accessory.

If it works with the 1100/1187 then it should work with the 870.

My gun nut side immediately dismissed this beacuse of weight and ballance issues. But my engineer side has to know how it works.
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 9:27:30 PM EST
It takes me 13 seconds or so to load 6 rounds into my Benelli M4... I dont even want to imagine how long it would take to load 23 rounds into that thing


For you guys in the USA, just get a SAIGA 12.....
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 9:31:56 PM EST
WTF just get a Saiga.
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 10:40:31 PM EST
An invention that does nothing more effectively than prove the value of a box/drum fed Saiga.
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 4:55:13 AM EST
If I get into the kind of trouble that 8+1 wont get me out of, I'm pretty much fucked anyway. Nice toy though.
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 4:58:29 AM EST
Seriously though, zombie madness and "because I can" aside. What market could that possibly be aimed at? When would you ever... EVER need that many shells compared to the wait gained unless its a military application.... Even then... no one's using something so stupid and cumbersome as a retro fit. If you're going to carry 20lbs of gun, its going to be something made to do, what it does...
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 5:54:25 AM EST
This is the perfect accessory for non-lethal in a riot situation. You could blast quite a few tree-humpers with this thing and have plenty of rubber buckshot to spare. Other than that, it would be heavy as hell and more or less just a toy.

No mention on price, and I am sure it won't be cheap. My guess is $300-350.

I want to know how the tubes on the device turn automatically to keep the shells coming. At first glance, I thought they would have to manually rotate it, but in the vidoes, it just goes.

The other videos of it in action all seem to be 3-gun stages.

It does seem to be more of a gun-game type of attachment rather than a defenceive or tactical application.

The biggest question I have is, "How is it loaded"?

Do you load the tube then index it to the next empty tube and keep filling?

The web site needs to have more information on it.

Like,

PRICE
Guns it fits.
Operation.

That's going to make for an extremely front heavy, poorly balanced shotgun.

But for 3-gun use where most stages are done in a minute or 2 would that matter?

Will it matter that the gun has more inertia and wants to swing past your target? Will it matter that you'll have to slow down to prevent that? Will it matter that it will be harder to maneuver the gun?
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 12:53:46 PM EST
I dont care what any of you say. I want a 23 round shotgun.

Will it matter that you no longer have to reload? Geez

Ok, I'm TOTALLY getting this for an 11-87 slug-thrower, siege-gun build I'm planning... Slap on a bipod and good to go.
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 1:32:47 PM EST
I like it.
Link Posted: 6/11/2009 1:34:35 PM EST
Yeah, that won't be front heavy or anything.
Link Posted: 6/12/2009 9:06:50 AM EST
If it said LaRue on the side of it everyone here would be jumping over themselves to buy one.

Yup. Plus reloading will take an hour.

in a SHTF situation if you had to reload after 23 rounds, I wouldn't want to be you.

I saw on youtube a chick loaded it with a thing that looked like a billy club in a sec. She just slid it in and it was done.
i think the video was dpms chick and the name of this company.
