    You asked for it: After James’ popular Beretta 1301 review and build videos, viewers wanted a budget shotgun build and review. In this episode, James budgets $500 for a semi-auto shotgun build. So, he buys a $400 Black Aces Tactical Pro Series S Max semi-automatic shotgun and then spends $100 at on budget accessories and goes over the build process. A build list is below, along with the budget items James would have bought instead. James will run this train wreck of a rig in a full review airing in 2 weeks.
