    I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A SBS (SHORT BARRELED SHOTGUN). I WANT AN AOW.


    I'd like to get an AOW in 12ga. but I'm curious if any can be had under $400-$500?

    The shorty Rem., Mossy, Serbus all seem to be in the $700 range.

    Any out there for less?

    BTW, I plan on building a nice SBS, so that is NOT what I want here.

    Thanks

    Probably the one you submit paperwork for and cut down the barrel.

    As I said I do not want a SBS for the purposes of this thread.

    SBS= Short Barreled Shotgun= $200 stamp

    AOW= Any other weapon= $5 stamp (transfer)

    Third time here...NOT looking for a SBS!

  10. That Keg M500 that you linked and the 14" 590A1's are going to be the cheapest your probably going to find.

    The 3+1 model seems to be VERY rare as I've only found one. It's the one I would lean toward though due to that extra shot. Then again 2+1 means 2-3" smaller.

    Thanks

  12. How handy are you at machining, OP?

    If you're handy and have access to the necessary tools, you could buy a pistol-grip only shotgun and make one yourself. This route would cost $200 for the tax stamp, but you can find PG-only shotguns relatively inexpensively.

    So, $200 for the gun and $200 for the stamp is almost half of what a new KEG or Serbu costs...

    IF you can do the machining work yourself, that is...

    AFAIK...
    The least expensive factory made AOW is the Safety Harbor KEG-12 @ around $600-650.

    Not very unfortunately.

    Plus I don't think they sell the exact same slim/folding forends as seen on the Serbu's.

    However, I do not know of any shotguns that are as you describe. Would that JIC (Just In Case gun from Mossberg be an example? That only had a pistol grip.

    Thanks

  15. Safety Harbor Firearms offers the KEG foregrip for sale but I believe its just for the 870 right now.

    Quick Question that I hope the OP don't mind me asking. All the AOW types I have seen are pump action. Are there semi-autos available or do they have to be pump? Links would be nice if someone knows of some semi's as Google couldn't find me any.
     
  17. There are Saiga S12 AOW's.

    And see I'm more interested in the Mossberg.

    Thanks

    With a traditional semi auto you have to have some sort of stock on it for it to function due to the spring/recoil mechanism.

    A friend of mine actually has a sawed off semi-auto that two nimrods used to rob a bunch of stores back in the 70's (his grandfather was the chief at the time so I guess he just kept it). Anyways the gun is useless and does not work. Plus I think the firing pin was taken out.

    As mentioned there are S12's but you are looking at a few grand to make them reliable. I had one that was new and I converted it. Biggest POS I ever owned!! The x39 version is one of the best AK's (converted) I've seen!! Go figure!

    Personally I'm leaning toward a Mossberg. However the decision I'm trying to make is between a 2+1 at 6.5" barrel or a 3+1 at 8.5". What are everyone's thoughts?

    Thanks

  20. yeah, the JIC pistol-gripped only shotguns would qualify.

    Like I said up above...you COULD make your own, but actually paying for all the work / parts / etc and you'd be right at, or over, the cost of buying one.

    Just save your pennies for a few more months and then go buy one.
