    I bought this Godawful ugly thing...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    and cant wait to sell it. A Franchi LAW-12 shotgun. Currently its sitting on the rack next to a 700BDL in .17 Rem and a Browning Superposed. Looks like a dog turd in a rose garden.

    Going on GB right now, starting at $495.

    It's all LTS's fault.

    Question, LTS... What is the knob on the muzzle supposed to do? Is it a thread protector? If so, what goes there?

    When those guns first came out they had different chokes tube including a spreader tube that was suppose to lay out a horz pattern.

    RT`s right, you have the thread protector, but to find out for sure...remove it, some are inverted choke tubes. The spreader attachment looks like a oversized flash hider, cool design...lays the shot out in a string...kinda like dropping extra BB`s in the barrel of a BB Gun....remember what that looked like when you shot it? A string...one behind the other.....This is refered to as a "DoorBuster Attachment" Makes short work of steel doors and locks using 12ga. frangible heavy shot payloads....it will cut a 3" diameter hole through 3/16" steel plate, blow a solid steel deadbolt or heavy hinges out at two feet....Nasty!

    I have a friend here who has a USAS12 that he is going to sell. I have a buyer but he wants to trade and the guys only looking for cash. It's unfired, with 3-20rd drums,2-10rd stick mags and a laser mounted on it. Needs the ATF stamp.

    If the gun is not already registered, isn't it too late?

    The end for these was MAY 1st 2001, if it was not registered prior....better find a deep hole or a deep lake. The BATF allowed plenty of time and used this time to track dealers who sold these. Dig-bury-leave. LTS

    It's OK he get the letter from the ATF 2 or 3 years ago. I guess some people just didn't want to do the paper on them, well looks like they will be getting a visit from the ATF now. They better now have them now and can tell them who they sold them to.
