Re: Definition of "sawed off shotgun"
Looking at a Mossberg M-590, with a 20 " barrel, and a mag tube as long, I find the receiver is 8" long; without a stock of any sort, and cut to 18", it would still be a legal weapon; take a tape or a yardstick, and carefully (It' your A**) measure the barrel length, and the overall, to the stock attatchment.
I'm betting it will be of legal length, with the folding stock folded.
I'm thinking that the stock you spoke of is an M-16 type stock, which, collapsed, would be still longer, overall, but if the barelled action 'makes length', you will never have a problem. Terry
