I like the way it looks before you did anything. I just don't like much more than a shell carrier but that's just me.

I'm compensating for everything I cant legally have on a rifle lol.

The scope is for slugs and Deer, (Ive sighted the scope in at 75 yards)

The laser is for buckshot and intruders.

Pre-safe act I was a rilfe guy only. Never owned a shotgun or ever fired one before this past march. SO far with this pig I have put:

900 CHaeap traget loads down range
over 200 buckshot down range
75 slugs down range
and over 50 turkey loads down range

I took a turkey this year with it even though its cylinder bore (no choke)

and judging by the fact I can put 25 slugs in an area smaller than my wifes tiny fist @ 75 yards, a deer will be taken this year. Despite everyone saying you cant hunt with an HD barrel.

Leave your wife's fist out of this lol! Is your shoulder better?
It was my collarbone not shoulder, and yes the next week I was shooting despite some quack doctor telling me not too! Just made me realize shooting in the prone is not as easy with a shotgun lol.

Also it embarrassing to say this but I let it go to long without a proper cleaning, even a CLP soaking would not loosen the action. Had to go to the gunsmith and a hour long dip in the solvent tank. The action is now like butter and cycles everything I throw at it. While he had it apart I had him ditch the savage mag spring and add the Winchester one. It now eats up everything I run through it, but I would have anyway if I had cleaned it properly. I had cleaned what I could without disassembly. Over a thousand rounds without a disassembly cleaning before It acted up though, so that's pretty good for cheap $200 HD shotty.

It's bittersweet when they're "done" it's always fun researching and ordering parts and bolting them on. When I bolted on my PA microdot on my 590a1 conversion it was "done." Good thing I still have my 930 to modify lol.
