I was wondering if anyone has this beast
im liking it alot however with that muzzle
Is it limited to breaching or can a buttstock be put on it and still be used for
standard shotgun ranges
ie 25 yard buckshot adn 100 yard slugs etc?
any thoughts

I'm not impressed with the ones I've seen.

The standoff is cool, but there isn't much going for it besides that. The ones I saw didn't even have a decent pistol grip.

You could add the breaching barrel to your existing shotgun. Not sure how it would affect pattern.

I don't think standoffs really have an effect on the pattern at all.

A Benelli "breaching barrel" is really just an extended choke tube with external threads that the stand-off brace/vent is screwed onto. With the Benelli system, any barrel that takes the Benelli choke tubes can use the Benelli "breaching barrel" and the externally threaded choke tubes were/are available in the typical choke constrictions. (I think I have IC, Mod, and Full tubes)

The interior bore of the stand-off is large enough that the pattern is determined by the choke, not the stand-off.

The stand-off brace/vent for the Benelli system that I have is made out of steel. It weighs a ton (not a good thing on a Benelli) but it does contain the shot if you happen to get any bounce-back from a hard door-facing, lock, hinge, etc.... so you don't get a face-full of swill.

My system looks similar to the pic in the link (no 'teeth' on mine but the vents look identical) and I remember some mention of "Royal Arms" in the literature/instructions so maybe it is the same system.

is the wilson using the Royal Arms barrel?

It looks like it, but it may just be an RA standoff attached to a regular barrel.

Actually, breaching doors is alot of fun. You don't get very many opportunities to do it in a non military/LEO capacity, but when you do it is great, assuming you like to break stuff.
