Thanks for the comments fellas....Not sure what I'll do with this one yet...putting it together was for fun

You do need one more thing - a sling. Of course, that means you need some sling swivels.

Assuming you are right handed, isn't the the wrong side for a side saddle? Wouldn't you want it on the right side for easy access when reloading.

Hey thanks man,
Got a sling, a single point, mounts with a QD swivel in that little hole on either side of the reciever adaptor,
Also, I am right handed, the side saddle is on the correct side, you reload with your offhand so it is always appropriate to have the saddle on the left side of the reciever if you are a right handed shooter.
However...mesa does sell an aditional 4rd sidesaddle that mounts to the right side of the reciever behind the ejection port

Gotta say, that's a lotta sh*t on there...you told us all about the gear, but how's she run? How does ti compare to your other traditional tacticals?

I wish...lol,
but I have been thinking about a different stock though...I was putting some thought into the Ace socom stocks

I would of went for a rail that just mounted on top of the receiver, not a full length, it looks too heavy with a full length. How heavy is it?
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 8:55:29 PM EDT
Runs like a raped ape...fast....dead on...just heavy.
It is mindlessly stoopid accurate with Brenneke black magic short magnum, and Ranger low recoil slugs, partly because you have the ability to really dial it in with the AR style sights. With slugs or buck it is just dead on to POA.
Really ergo, and comfy, so it handles fast, with much less felt recoil compared to most of my standard stocked pumps, and even less felt recoil than my 870 with Speedfeed IVs with an R3

Overall really cool...just a bit out of mold for me

Like all men, you are focused on the BIG stuff and missed the important little details.

Other things you missed: Tripod, laser, Aimpoint and bayonet lug. Should still be under 12-13 pounds with all that.

lol......nah..I run a vang safety on one of my other 870's...not too big or anything like that, but helpful when you are using a standard shotgun stock. With the pistol grip and AR style stock, the oversized safety just isn't a necessity, I can manipulate the safety wih the inner pad of my trigger finger very easy...However, I'm sure one will end up on it.

Bonus points though for still retaining the stock bead front sight.

Keep that crap off my AK...err...shotgun!





Actually, it looks pretty interesting. I think it would be kind of fun to shoot...probably weighs a lot though, doesn't it?

That would make it rather difficult to eject spent shells.


LOL!

These additions do add up. That is why it is important to have a sling. If you have to carry it around, the sling helps spread the load. If you have to hold someone at bay while awaiting the police, the sling really helps.

I am profoundly right handed. It never even occurred to me to reload using the left hand. I'll have to try that next time I'm practicing or at the range.

It's a "DUH!, why didn't I think of that?" type of thing.

I never use a side saddle, so I was poking at that. Looks like he's got it where he wants it. "... hard to eject shells." LOL! I do something else. The shotgun is heavy enough as it is. I keep my ammo on my person.
