Is there an inexpensive (200 – 300 dollar range) of mounting an existing shotgun onto an AR-15? I know Knight has one for 2000$, but that is a little too steep for me.

If your shotgun has a picatinny rail on top of the reciever, you could always use standard lock down bolts and attach the rail on the shotgun to the bottom rail of your AR15 handguard. You'd have to remove the shotgun stock first (or cut it off).

if you have a drill and dremmel tool you can fab one yourself out of aluminum stock.

Thanks for the information – I did a search for “shotgun” before posting and could not find this. Anyhow, considering all the hoops I would have to jump through, I’ll just devote the time and effort on other mods to my purchase pending Bushmaster.

Why would someone want to mount a shotgun to the bottom of an AR? Why not just have a seperate AOW shotgun for breaching and a seperate AR? The concept is lost on me.

If the shotgun is below the minimum barrel length or OAL, it will need to be NFA registered, and the $200 tax paid.

You aren't the only one. Those that wanted and caused the KAC Masterkey came to the same decision and for the most part dropped the concept. They found it was not worth having such a heavy, overbalanced rifle, when it was only good for breaching doors. For the breacher, if that is all he did, I suppose it's okay, but it really made for a lousy rifle if he had to do anything more than that. I am guessing only a small few special purpose operators use it. As for civilians, the commercial version is not only really, really expensive, but requires an C3 tax stamp like any other machinegun, which can be problematic, and another $200 out of your pocket. It's only good if you have tons of money, toys, and want another toy to show off (unless your job requires it).
