    elcaminos,

    I'm really liking that plug you made for your Surefire. Looks great. Can I ask what parts you made it out of?

    Thanks bosshog, I made it out of a solid piece of stainless steel and a used shell casing, I'm a machinist. Unfortunately my company has a rule about production runs or making things that you intend to profit from, otherwise I'd crank some more out for other people.

    They do fall out if you shoot alot, but for a HD gun it works pretty well. I've actually been debating puting the Knoxx SpecOps Stock on it.

    I just scrolled down through all the pics on this thread, admired the hardware and realized again what I like to see on a shotgun the most.

    The lights, sights, mag extensions, high tech stocks and all look nice. But what I really like to see on a defensive tool is......


    WEAR MARKS!!....

    Translation: quit gloating on your toys and go shoot them.

    <said with utmost respect>
    I love it when a master teacher,
    who has forgotten more about shotguns
    than most of us will ever know,
    drops the hammer on student heads.

    :evil:

    I propose a new thread:

    Let's see some wear marks on shotguns!!!

    Gordon, yup. Just like that.

    Nem, I was being nice.

    BA/UU/R is still mandatory for expertise.

    Sorry, there won't be enough ambient light to see my wear marks at
    dawn, but trust me, they're there ;)

    My M500 (prior to folding stock mod) is hanging on the open humvee door.

    LOL, you got a crystal ball? If it's all the same I'd rather stay at home

    I don't suck up to anyone.

    Last time I checked, sucking up is not a requirement for participation in this forum.

    Both of you:I was being humorous. Note the laughing devil that connotes humorous mischief.

    Don't take yourselves too seriously.

    Just kidding, don't get too excited.

    ;)

    Remington 870P MAX
    *Speedfeed IV Stock
    *2 Shot Extension
    *Surefire 618FA Weapon Light
    *Wilson Combat/Scattergun Technologies Ghost Ring Sights

    My Personal touches:
    *Specter Gear CST Sling (Coyote)
    *Specter Gear Buttstock Shell Holder (Coyote)

    I liked the 870P MAX because it came standarg with all the upgrades that I wanted.

    I stick with Specter Gear because it's the gear I trusted in Iraq.

    I prefer a buttstock shell holder rather than a receiver-mounted because while the weapon is slung, those shells and the holder would be digging into my body.

    Winchester defender with a 10" barrel (class 3). Tritium night sight in front over top screw in winchoke choke tubes. Breech end of barre was back bored. Folding butler creek stock finished in gunkote. It throws a good pattern at realistic range and it fits under a jean jacket if style is important!

    I like a grip that doesn't overlap the receiver so there's less potential for jamming.

    Hey TBL, it's nice to see a stock on that Mossburg. Most of the SECFOR guys here that have them just have the pistol grip only. I can't help but wonder how missing while making your wrist sore is a good thing? One guy has Knoxx SpecOps stock on his.

    If they made me a SECFOR CO, my first order would be no PG only shotguns unless someone could convince me of a sound reason why it would improve performance/handling for them. Improving handling in the chow hall doesn't count.:uhoh:

    Alot of tactical shotguns run side saddles. If you have one the forend must be short enough to not overlap the receiver and contact the side saddle.

    All Questions

    How do you operate the slide lock on a Mossberg with a PG only? Where does it go?

    Oh yeah, and what is BA/UU/R?

    Nice Shotguns guys
