Happy 4th of July weekend to everyone.

I have been doing a search of THR but have not found this information.

I have a 97 Winchester clone with 20" barrel. I would like to upgrade to modern short barrel shotgun. It must be 12 ga., short riot barrel (18 - 20" in length) and traditional full length stock (no pistol grip).

I would like a list of new short barrel shotguns that are being manufactured. (Well I will also consider a out of production gun that is commonly available). I want it to have the short barrel off of the shelf. I know I can have a gunsmith cut the barrel to whatever length I want but if I going to do that I will look for a used gun instead.

Please feel free to include any suggestions along with what you consider to be strong and weak points of the design.

In no particular order:

Mossberg Model 500
Mossberg Model 930
Maverick Model 88

Look for a Benelux M1 S90, I have aone with the rifle sights and mag extension. Fires 9 rds really fast and reliable as heck. No better gun IMO.

To me half the fun is doing my own research............. Who knows what else you might learn along the way.

Browning BPS Upland, great hunting gun while also viable for HD use.

Certainly a worthy list to shop through!
My pitch is for the Mossberg 500 because of its flexibility with quick change barrels. I use mine with the short barrel at home for security and the long barrel for bird hunting.
