    Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:

    “A once normal-looking, American shotgun has successfully been modified to look Turkishly-foreign and dumpster fire-esque. I give it 2 of 4 dumpsters.” – Adam S.

    “Benelli m4 at home…” – Rusty S.

    “All that weight and none of it dedicated to carrying more ammo? Oh, and does the winning bid get the coasters as well?” – Doug E.

    “Hell yeah, put some more wish .com bullshit on there.” – Will P.

    “I see one seahorse, one turtle, four boat anchors” – Giorgio O.

    “Here we have a prime example of what NOT to do.” – Nick C.

    Remington 1100 12 gauge turn into a custom tactical shotgun.

    New Trigger with easy loader.

    New Recoil Spring Extra Power and a extra standard comes with.

    New Mesa Tactical Urbino® Pistol Grip Stock.

    New Magpul Flip-Up Sights.

    New tactical gun flashlight.

    New Black Aces Tactical Picatinny Quad Rail.

    19-inch barrel thread for choke tube.

    Not the original owner of the gun. I bought the gun 7 years ago at a gun show with all the work done to it only shot 20 rounds through it. The gun likes high brass round. So, I bought a standard Recoil Spring for bit never install it. Awesome gun buy as is no refunds.

    The hallmark of any tactical shotgun will always be the addition of a pistol grip. Doesn’t matter the form, if you want to be tactical you’re gonna need a pistol grip. Of course, you wouldn’t want all that newfound ergonomic goodness to go to waste, so you’re going to need to tailor fit that stock as well.

    Now that your tactical shotgun has all the creature comforts you need to add accessories.  As we all know the name of the game is quad rails.  Because even if you’re not using them, it’s always better when your gun is covered in these abrasive 1913 bumpy nubs.  I mean, how else are you supposed to backward mount your Magpul angled foregrip without them?

    Minus all the accessories and ditching the unnecessary rails, this could actually be a nice shotgun.  I don’t know if it’s worth $700 so as always I leave it up to you, the readers, to decide.
