    The thread on SBS doubles peeked my interest does anyone know of commercially produced guns like this?

    They're hideously overpriced. You're far, far better off buying a shotgun as-is, and doing the work yourself. Buying one can be up to $900, plus the $200 tax. My Stoeger SBS uplander 12ga was $200ish, used, then the $200 stamp. A whole lot cheaper than $1,100, even though I had to buy some simple tools back then! :)

    If you care about the barrels printing within a few feet of each other, you'll need to regulate them yourself. Needs some fairly specialized gunsmithing knowledge, silver soldering equipment and know-how, and easy access to a range. Not incredibly difficult, just trial and error and luck.

    Here's a link to the only manufacturer I know of. http://www.hatchergun.com/sbs.htm

    Like PTK said, very overpriced.

    On the other hand, if you don't mind spending a full minute reloading each barrel, there are a couple of muzzleloading 20 gauges on the market.

    Pedersoli $650 - http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=14020
    Pedersoli kit $575 - http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=14306
    Middlesex $350 - http://www.middlesexvillagetrading.com/PDBC.SHTML

    The Middlesex one looks like a real bargain, main problem is they're handmade in India, meaning no standardized replacement parts if something breaks. I've got a Pedersoli, myself. Legally, the polar opposite of a regular SBS, ships to your door like a plain piece of metal.

    Main advantage of a C&B gun is there's no tang release to jam into the web of your hand if the gun slips. Ouchies!

    Didn't Dominion Arms make wonderful little sawed-offs? Not sure what happened to that company though.

    So with the DIY route you apply for the stamp first? If so on the app do get specific on type or brand gun?

    Buy the gun first, then get the stamp, THEN do work on the gun. :)

    The form 1 is what you need to fill out, and it does indeed need specific make/model of gun, gauge, etc.

    I would love one of those. These look just like the Century Arms JW-2000 I bought at Big 5; mine just has a 20" barrel. They sell them in Canada like that.

    They're still around. As BenB8290 said, they sell a bunch of what we call "SBS" in Canada.
