    I am not a fan of a DM shotgun. I think they are clunky, same goes for a pistol grip shotgun. I would much rather have a tube gun with standard stock. My 590 is 8+1 and no pistol grip. Feels nice and comfortable and slim. I realize the one disadvantage is that with a DM you can reload it faster, assuming you're carrying extra mags. But, I have never had to reload with 9 rounds on tap.

    No thanks.

    Look how poorly their DM hi-cap pump 7600's Frankenguns fared.

    They were so-so with USGI straight 20 round magazines but slap in a 30-round mag and good luck manipulating the forend without difficulty; what a clunker!

    Yeah, this shotgun seems clunky for sure. That’s only a 6-round mag, it’s big, and it hangs way down beneath the shotgun. I was hoping for something more exciting than this.

    Nope not gonna happen I can empty 9 rounds and reload and empty again faster than you can fumble for a mag.

    AND you would think Remington's engineers could figure out a way to also include the mag tube itself; as it stands, just wasted real estate for a pump arm and rails.

    4+1 from the tube that when empty, switches to the 6-round box magazine sounds doable.

    Even then I'd pass but it might attract a little more attention.

    For me, no thanks, as it's just too easy to top off a tube mag, and still keep the gun running if things are tight........

    Nice if the detachable mag could somehow refill the mag tube quickly

    I like your idea! I think, though, having it use the mag first, then switch to the tube.

    Their ad shows a Tac-14 DM available.

    Interesting.

    Yeah, it’s pretty hard to trust Big Green these days. I grew up loving Remington too.

    Looks tacticool. It'll probably sell well. It'll probably also do well as a prop gun in TV shows and Movies. Expect to see guys chewing up all manner of walls, windows and vehicles with it in future shows.

    Personally, I consider one of the great advantages of a tube-magazine pump shotgun to be the integral magazine. It makes for a slim profile and fast handling.

    No magazine to risk losing, coming unlatched, being dislodged or damaged (impact) or getting in the way. Once you lose your magazine (loss or damage), your pump shotgun is now a single shot, and if there's no shell carrier anymore, probably a less easily loaded single shot.

    Also, you can more easily top off a tube magazine at any moment than a box magazine (no fumbling with removing, topping off and reinserting & seating the box).

    I think I'll stay with my standard config 870 and my Winchester 1200. That leaves more for some of you guys. :p

    Not to mention that you cant really store the mags loaded, the spring pressure will deform plastic hulled shells in a relatively short amount of time. If a drum mag existed and this was a Versamax I'd be interested but in an 870 I could care less.

    That does make sense from a non-engineering background....either way, I think that even the body/feed lips of an empty magazine would get in the way of a lifter (or whatever the device/part) to allow a loaded shell (from the tube) to reach the chamber.

    I'm thinking too much. And while I'm not interested in buying one, I am curious about how one could (if it's even possible) implement the tube and a DM.....

    I'll stick with my tube 870's. You can reload on the move, by inserting 1 rd at a time into the tube, keeping the shotgun fully loaded.

    :cool:

    Black Aces has offered a DM shotgun and short bbl firearm based on the Mossberg 500 for about 5 years. It uses Saiga mags/drums.

    Nah. I load 8 rounds, shot to shot in 3.5 seconds. So much fizzle at Remington these days.

    As someone who owned a Black Aces 500, that was an unreliable Hunk of Junk, I'm intrigued.
