>"Both the SOW (Special Operations Weapon) and its magazine-fed Remington 870 predecessor (bottom) were products of mechanical wizard Carroll Childers, an engineer at the Naval Special Weapons Center. The 870 mod kit provided SEAL shotgunners with a quick-change magazine holding 20 rounds. The SOW was full-auto."<
That says to me TWO DIFFERENT GUNS. The SOW and its 870 predecessor. You know, like "the 1911 .45 automatic and its 38 Long Colt revolver predecessor". Or "the M1 Garand and its 1903 Springfield predecessor".
Just because the box-magazine fed 870 was used BEFORE the SOW (preceded it) does not mean that the SOW was derived from it.
