I haven't looked at all of the pages, but does anyone know anything about the FN tactical shotguns? How do they shoot and how reliable are they, etc.

I know the break is a little over the top, but I like how it looks!
That's AWESOME! No zombie will survive a shot from the Rem870 that can hold 2 3/4 up to 50bmg.

The SHOT ShowCase

anybody know how to replace the forend? I got the barrel off but i couldn't get the forend off, looks like i need a specialized tool/wrench to get it off.

I just replaced mine the other day. Remove the forearm from the gun, then I just used a thin screwdriver and laid it sideways in the 2 notches and unscrewed the end nut. Pull the inner tube and action arms out and taa daa its off.

You ever actually shot those sabot slugs from your gun to check for accuracy?

This has come up before. I am no expert but from whatI gather, sabots need to be shot out of a rifled shotgun barrel so that the spin can stabilize the projectile in flight. Being merely pushed out of a smooth bore barrel makes the sabot wobble and inaccurate or inconsistant at the least.

Rifled slugs on the other hand are better suited for smooth bore because the spiral cuts on the projectile body allow high speed air to pass through them and create somewhat of a spin. Any amount of spin should provide some decent and consistant accuracy on a shotgun slug.

Obviously a sabot with some serious spin from a rifled choke or rifled barrel will have greater accuracy.

I could be wrong though?

Now I dont know what would happen if you shot a rifled slug out of a rifled barrel? Would the rifling on the slug match up automatically with the rifling on the barrel?

I was wondering myself how a sabot slug would work out of a smoothbore barrel for HD ranges of maybe 15 yards or less. I like the idea of the Hornady slug that expands kind of like a hollowpoint, expending most/all of its energy in the bad guy

Rifled slugs don't spin. They stabilize because they're very nose heavy. The analogy most often used is that of a badminton birdie. If the grooves cut into a rifled slug serve any real function, it's to allow a sort of crush zone which allows the slug to squeeze down through a choked bore.

Sabot slugs are cool and all, but they're very expensive, and only fly properly from a rifled bore. They're meant for big game hunters in shotgun only areas to be able to stretch the range of a shotgun to the very max. A good bolt action or single shot slug gun with a good load, good scope, and a good shooter will take deer out past 200 yards.

Here's some good reading on sabot slugs... http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot46.htm

Ah I see. I have never shot a rifled slug out of a shotgun with a choke. I always thought it was bad but then again I am still learning new things every day.

I am learning too. I thought the Sabot slugs had rifling grooves on the slugs themselves for use in smooth bores??

FSDS Slugs!

Don't forget the Sauvestre fin-stabilized sabot slugs. Seem to work very well out of smoothbores.

Mine is stock with the exception of a recoil pad. I am interested in acquiring an adjustable stock with a pistol grip, and a forend light. Your pictures have given me a lot of ideas.

Old skool and new skool!

I did have the Knoxx Spec Ops stock on the 870 Express "Talo" edition but I went back to K.I.S.S. I have grown to like traditional style shotgun stocks.
