I picked one up a couple weeks ago at a local gun show. The first thing I did was remove the plastic safety and replace it with a steel "ski slope" type from Brownell's. I also installed a "wave" washer between the magazine extension and tube. The front sight is not canted, it has a sling swivel stud on the forearm piece and a knurled tubular charging handle installed from the factory. I put roughly 100 rounds of low brass through it today and found it to be more smooth than my 1100 tactical and considerably lighter. I will give it a good workout at this month's 3-gun match on Saturday.
