Tactical Shotguns

Here's the one that rides in my patrol car. Has a tac star side mount for extra shells, and the adjustable stock holds five more. Also has tlr 3 light up front (a must for any long defense weapon imho) and has a fiber optic front sight that snaps over the barrel which works very well. Could have traded it for issued Remington but like the old Winchester better.

How long is the barrel on that? And in your opinion how much do you think it would cost for me to make mine look like this ? Right now its stock looks the same as it did when bought in 1979 Winchester model 1200.

Has anyone here added a collapsible stock and forearm to an old Defender? Any suggestions?
I also have a 1300 Defender...... short barrel, long magazine, synthetic stock. Only wish the barrel was shorter!

.

It is a 18 inch barrel. The adjustable stock I found on ebay for $40. The synthetic forend ebay $10. The HiViz snap on front sight $15. The tacstar side saddle $25. The tlr light was issue so it was free. But on my AR I have an Olight that I really like that I got for around 40 bucks.

So all total you are prolly looking at $125 for everything, maybe cheaper if you shop hard and get lucky.

so I have one last question my 28 inch barrel is original for hunting. Should I cut it or try to find another one and if i have it cut will it still work properly? And if I cut it will it diminish the value of the gun ? I wanna make it look like yours and I really the 1200/1300s are one of the best old guns made and I just wanna make sure I'm doing the right thing turning it into looking like a old police gun and working like one also meaning if I have it cut will it still be the same and work the same as if I purchased a riot or defender barrel for like 200.00 $

If it was me and there were any way possible then I would leave it alone and search for a defender. With diligence and a little luck I have seen them on gunbroker and auction arms go for under $300.

However if you cut yours down it will work. It will become a cylinder bore which is what the defender is. I don't know about any mag tube extentions being made for the winchester that would allow the 7 shot mag but there may be. Though again by the time you paid for cutting your barrel and getting a mag extention you could have come close to a used defender in good shape. Hope this helps.

Thank you herose that was my main concern is that it would still work and be efficient I saw the Mac tubes were around 45-50$ for 7 shots to 18 inch barrel and 10 shot for 22 inch barrel is yours 7 or 10 ?

I'm using a Choate +2 (7 shot) mag extension.

Worth a look.

I am of the opinion that the "social" shotgun should be slick, smooth,and handy for 99.9% of all civillian "operators". "Tacticalizing" them works against all of those things. The farthest I go is ghost ring sights (on one of mine) and a butt cuff ammo holder.

I'm of the opinion that an onboard light is mandatory for any defensive long gun. Target ID is critical.

To me it depends on purpose and tactics. keep a light on my nightstand pistol and on a "tactical" rifle that is handy.

Nothing scientific, just observation on the range. I should have clarified the newer Winchesters go down more often than the older ones (> 20 yrs).

As I said, the older guns are better made. Was this 6k rds of buckshot and slugs? Again I was a trifle unclear in my statement.
