Just picked up this Model 10 for $106.99 today. Forgive the shit picture, I dont' have a proper camera on me. Anyone here have some unusual/uncommon shotguns to show off? Also general shotgun thread.
Mine is neither rare nor unusual. It's a 870 supermag(dat 3.5" chamber) I won at a raffle. But I recently decided to paint it to duck hunt with and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out(first time painting a gun) so, Fuck it, I'm posting it
They make 3.5" slugs?? Im not sure if I hate my shoulder enough to try that.
Followed up the OD with some lighter green
Finally, some tan sprayed through a bunch of pine needles laid against the grain of the stripes for that "wetland" look
Not sure why that uploaded sideways..
Yeah, you really have to be a masochist to shoot them, but some people swear by that extra 1/2". Personally, I couldn't afford to feed it, so I got out of my 835 for about $50 more than I put into it.
Your paint job came out really nice. I'm actually thinking about getting into cerakoting myself, I have a Stevens 5100 that needs a new lease on life.
Now to go slaughter some mallards and wood ducks this weekend
Cerakote is pricey and apparently much more involved a process. My lgs owner was talking about how he cerakoted a few things in his home oven, and how he had to go get a spray gun from Harbor Freight to apply it. At $60 a pint, you'll probably be doing a lot of prep work to make sure it comes out alright, because last I checked there's no way to un-cerakote a gun.
That being said, this: http://www.cerakoteguncoatings.com/finishes/H-245Q/socom-blue/
Is supposed to replicate a blued finish very well. For the money, it's not that bad if you, say, have a few old guns you just want to get more use out of.
eh, it just sounds cringey to me
when people say it to me they sound like they're trying really hard to fit in; but, they don't really know who they're trying to fit in with, so they just throw it out there and hope it sticks to something.
when will this meme die? there is nothing wrong with reddit. there are good and bad people there just like everywhere else.
that´s not a scattergat
pic related is a scattergat
was thinking about getting a Stevens 311 off of gunbroker. any useful info you guys might have on the 311?
I've had 7 over the years. They weren't bad or anything; I kept finding really good deals* on them and passing them along. Best score was when I got two canabalized guns and fixed both of them up, then sold one of them at a profit. Essentially, I made $35 and got a free slug gun.
Stoeger? I'm a Savage 311 fan myself.
>I've had 7 over the years. They weren't bad or anything; I kept finding really good deals
I keep finding lightly used 835s that "have problems" for stupid cheap, around $175 out the door.
I've bought at least three where the 'has problems' part is simply pic related, because nobody reads the owners manual and all they see is 5+1 on the sticker.
>Remington 11-87: $499-649

>Remington 11-87 Sportsman (wood) MSRP: $854.00
>Remington 11-87 Sportsman (synthetic) MSRP: $804.00

>more expensive than Mossberg AND Remington
>listed 2 of the oldest Mossberg and Remington autoloaders in production
>within $20 of one and almost $100 cheaper than the other
Would you rather I compare them to the 935 and Versa-Max? Or do you somehow think that 699 is more than 854? Or perhaps you're thinking that and means or?
Browning Double-Auto, steel receiver, pre-1958. Got it from my grandpa when he died.
My 835 was right at $200 with a Bushnell scope mounted (probably not a very expensive one for that price). It was rusty and dirty but I managed to get most of that off with a wad of 0000, then after spending waaay too much money in giganto slugs for range giggles I sold it. My 500 Persuader came to me for, again, $200 because the last guy read a shit review online... after putting a Hogue overmold stock on it. I'm trying to convince a welder friend of mine to help me make a 590 style bayonet mount because I can't find a decent deal on the real thing.
Is that some early Mossberg camo job I see there? Here, have mine.
Stevens/Savage/Springfield 311's are a gread double for the money, and they're no slouches when it comes to reliability. I have a 311-style that I swear had to have come out of a barn, and it runs just great under all the rust. Some things to consider:
-a large number of them were sold at hardware stores, and were finished accordingly
-greenish tinted stocks = less desireable, so don't shell out too much money for one
-cut barrels also bring down value
-longer the barrel, the tighter the chokes. Read up on whatever you got (manufacturer + model + date as close as you can get) to figure out what the chokes are
-A lot of these were made without serial numbers, meaning that you'll have to go by the stamps on the barrels, stock, and reciever
-Finally: Unless you absolutely have to, do NOT disassemble. They're a bitch to pull apart and more than a few /k/ommandos have had these things sitting on their workbench because they couldn't put them back together.
The Mossberg 500 family is a pretty robust and simple group of guns. Having owned a few I have a soft spot for them. The 590 is a little extra for not really that much more utility--assuming you're getting one without the bayonet lug, it's not that much better than a 500 other than the all-metal fire group and the heavier barrel. If you don't have any stupid restrictions, a 590a1 is kind of cool.
No idea, just though i'd post something relevant to the thread
Or, better yet, smash a shitload of oyster crackers and stir them into the congealed (canned) clam chowder. Then pack in 20ga fired hulls and either bake at like 200*F in the oven or just sit outside all day during the summer, make chowder cement.
Load that like a giant minie ball.
>forensics guy's face when
>alright Jenkins, what was he shot with?
>"...sir, I don't know how to tell you this..."
>What. Was. He. Shot. With.
>"Clam chowder, sir."
>"This man was killed by projectile clam chowder. Sir."
Only if your FFL is particularly retarded.
Nearly a quarter of all firearms manufactured in the US were manufactured without a serial number. There's shit in place to deal with those.
That's a pretty sweet deal man.
Also, out of curiosity, I've never seen a vent-rib barrel that short before. Fixed cylinder bore, or screw-in chokes?
If screw-in chokes, I think I just found myself a new grouse gun. Fuck carrying a 26" barrel though super thick pine woods.
If I were to buy a shotgun in Commiefornia, would anything come in the mail during the registration process/background check? I'm going to be living there with a family member soon for a few years, and I don't want them knowing I have one since I don't know their stance on firearms. Just need one for home defense.
I've only bought handguns in another state and I don't now how CA works because the laws are out of whack there. I hope everything is taken care of at the store
Looking to purchase either Mossberg 500 or Maverick
Couple suggestions then.
Stevens 320 HD
>cheap ($200ish USD)
>good ghost-ring sights at the proper height
>pistol grip+crossbolt safety, so you can actually reach the safety
>long, Benelli Nova-esque forend
-no aftermarket to speak of
-slide release is small and round
IAC Hawk/Norinco 870 clone
>cheap (where available, $200 or less USD)
>loads of aftermarket
>actually built better than Rem 870 Express, about on par with Wingmaster
>IAC has factory bayo lug option, not sure whose bayonet it fits
>available in 8+1
>heavy enough to absorb a good amount of recoil, not so heavy you tire out carrying/shooting it
-fuck-all for warranty
-chinkiest of chinkstuff. Surprisingly not shit, so not chinkshit, but still chinky. Last one I saw came with instructions solely in Mandarin.
I've been thinking about getting a Benelli M4, are they worth the money?
Got this one for $75, Springfield by stevens, plastic furniture, hammer is ungodly stiff, I love how monstrous it is
Nope- any paperwork will be part of the face-to-face with the shop who sold the gun.
Is this unusual enough for you?
My very rare 1909 Sjögren semi-automatic shotgun.
Inertia recoil operated, and slightly terrifying to shoot due to that 1 1/2 pound slide recoiling right in front of your face.
"For the money" is a subjective thing, but they're great shotguns if you can stomach the price. IIRC Hatsan (a Turkish company) makes a much more inexpensive clone/knockoff that's apparently decent, but it also lacks aftermarket accessories and chokes.
Yeah its okay though the ventral rail was a pain to screw in. I took it off. The rails made it tricky getting into the scabbard- and I had to take the light off to do it anyway so keep that in mind if you have a scabbard.
How much is a Winchester model 12 trench gun barrel worth?
I came across a deal on one awhile back and I don't think I'll ever get around to making a trench gun.
How much could I sell this for?
It actually moves pretty slowly, which kind of makes it a bit scarier. It's slow enough you can see it moving back and forth clearly.
Robust? Hell yeah. This thing is solidly built, and finely made. I don't really understand how they figured this thing would be profitable, the amount of machining is crazy.
The slide is retained a lot more securely than it appears. It's got a spring loaded buffer at the end of the travel, and rides on two side rails. It's also attached to receiver in such a way that about 10 parts would need to break in a specific order for it fly off, and a parts breakage is more likely to lock it TO the receiver.
The mechanism is hard to understand, even with it disassembled. It's recoil operated, with a tilting locking block and spring loaded breech block. It's basically unlocked by the inertia of the gun recoiling against you; the insides of the bolt remain stationary for a period and the whole thing recoils around them.
Topper 88 12 gauge w/ leather side saddle, seatbelt from a 1977 El Camino sling, and a tactical strobe light.
Currently using Winchester PDX 1 rounds for HD.
H-here's mine. Going to put a magpul MOE forend and stock on it here pretty soon. Also going to add a truglo front site, an optics rail, and a flashlight mount.
I just got offered a 1937 Stevens 520 12 gauge for my M91/30. I think I'm gonna take it plus some money to turn it into a riot gun.
Pic related is my nugget
