    First time I have ever seen the WC sight on the front of a 12"er. Dresses it up nicely. Special request?

    Sweetness!

    If you want to keep it running smooth write this part number down, F102324 and it retails for $34 from Remington. That is the forend tube assembly and pick up several of them. The reason is that you have a vertical forend on one of the weapons. That device is going to over torque the action bars as you rack the weapon. Soon you will notice the action getting stiff. This is because the action bars are being twisted by that forend. Take the forend the off and you will notice that one action bar is twisted down and in and the other up and out. You can bend them back some but they will return to the twisted form and you are damaging the slots in the receiver. So replace this part often and you can continue having fun with that weapon as long as you don't mind the damage that device is causing.

    I offer this advise as I hate to see fine wepaons like that damaged.

    How do you like the shoulder stocks? I have been thinking about getting one of them to replace my side folding stock on my 870.

    Sweet looking scatterguns!

    Do you need any special paperwork for them with the barrels that length?

    Yes on the 12" the Surefire light is in the side saddle with a pressure switch velcroed on the pistol grip. So when you squeeze the switch, the room lights up.

    You can't bet the Knoxx Stock for reduced recoil.

    Your Welcome, glad to help. Go to their website and watch the video of them shooting a 12 gauge one handed. For the money its worth every penny.

    Can California residents attain a short barrel shotgun? With a taxstamp?

    You would have to look into your gun laws for that state. I'm not sure if you can or not.

    Yes, but the shotgun would have to be a C&R.
