A couple question's for all of the 14'' 870 owner's, I have been seriously thinking about going the SBS route. First question, is it worth the hassle and expense? Second, are there any real advantages or disadvantages from shaving 4''? It seems like the shorter barrel, lighter weight would be positive's. As far as negative's maybe increased muzzle flash, noise, recoil? I am not looking into this for the coolness factor, my 18'' with factory plus two tube just seems fairly long and heavy for an H.D. scenario. Let me know what you think. Wanna kill these ads?
