Lets have some pictures of your builds.

Post by cv0lv0g0 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 6:08 pm

Here's mine which came about when I found the stock in the scrape metal pile in my dad's old shop. :cry:

I also have a trigger group which makes it "slam-fire".
I have to get my mill up and running and I'm doing the same thing again but group that is in my 870 Which has stronger springs and a better trigger

And for the nanny sayers

Hi Patty,

It is OK from a GCA/NFA standpoint, but he may want to consider liability/product safety before doing that.

Subject: Slam Fire/Pump Action Question

I received a call from a gunsmith apprentice asking if it is legal to modify a shotgun to operate as a “slam fire” in the same manner as the now discontinued Ithaca, Model 37, pump action, a firearm that was discontinued due to liability/safety issues. He stated he is aware there is a Chinese copy “straight from the factory” currently being imported, a 1987 Winchester. Can he legally make these modifications. Please advise. Thank you,
Patty

Nice shotgun. Here's mine. It started as a Special Purpose Turkey Shotgun w/Extra Full Turkey Choke, 3" magnum. I modified it for home defense. I added a Remington 18" barrel, police fore end, Scattergun Technology two round magazine extension w/QD stud, spring and follower. TacStar sidesaddle 6 round shell holder. Butler Creek Mountain Sling, with swivels.

Very nice shorty. Is that a 12" LOP stock? I've been thinking about adding one to my shotgun.

Looks good Simon. Is the hole spacing on the rail factory Remington?
Don't buy it if you can't sell it.
