    I have read that the barrels are not compatible but most everything else will cross over.

    The gun is produced by Norinco, at least that is what I have heard. It is a relatively heavy gun probably do in part to the all steel receiver.

    I'm more concerend with stocks/forearms/pistolgrips, I'm really not sure which way I want to go with it. if it has an 18 inch barrel, that is about perfect for home security so I wouldn't need to change that. and that about rules out putting a longer tube on it.

    I have a Ithica 20 ga with 3 buck. After the smoke clears, if needed, I go with the Glock 23 with 155JHPs.

    I do not want to use bird shot because if I need to shoot, I want them immediately out of action, hopefully for good.

    I have never seen 00 in 20 ga FWIW.

    I am a peaceful person up till when you mess with my family, me or my home.

    Check out this guide/article, very long but also very interesting in helping one selecting the best ammunition for defensive firearms.

    #4 in 12 Ga. .45s are next up if needed. If that's not enough I'm dead.

    Any they miss will fester. Pain on pain. My Mom related visiting a friend in the hospital before WWII. In the next bed was an oyster poacher who had numerous angry festering red whelps on his back. Each with a black spot in the center. The owner of the oyster bed must have had the range on this guy. Broke the skin good but didn't kill him. Maybe he had done this before. In those days, the poacher was the bad guy.
