Ok I have a model 88 for self defense with a smooth bore slug barrel. I am thinking about a tac set up. Sooooo what is best type of accessories???
ok got the Flashlite good idea-how does one increas mag tube capacity? I pulled the wood plug now I got 5, are there after market tube mags?? If so who sells them?flashlight and sling!
I've got a sidesaddle shellholder and a buttstock shellholder on mine also. 8+1 mag capacity, plus 6 on the side and 7 on the stock.
flashlight is the most important I think, I put a coiled stretch cord pressure switch on mine and have it velcroed to the pump where your hand goes. used epoxy to glue the velcro strip on the pump.
What brand are those shotgun slings with the round holders on the stock- it looks like a one piece setup?
870 and 590 laid out
six shells on the buttstock, I lied. one of my others is a 7 rounder
I thought they might be "homemade" That is nice craftmanship. I have made a strap carrier for 440 rd 7.62 ammo cans but I HAND sowed the thing-ugly but workablethese are all home made goodies, I have an industrial sewing machine and tons of fabric/materials. sorry, I cheat by having a 'gear business'! it's really just a an excuse to have tons of kit for myself without losing money spent on gear.
But there's plenty of stuff out there similar; the buttstock deal is two piece, I made the shell holder before the sling so it's two different pieces but could easily be made in one piece. Tactical tailor is a huge local vendor with lots of goodies, if I didn't make my own stuff i would buy their crap over anyone elses probably. LaRue tactical, BDS, and a bunch of other small companies out there that I would give my money to first though, just cause their small businesses.
A good set up shotty is the best for HD I think though, less over penetration but tons of energy on the target, not to mention huge selection/diversity of ammo.
The light I think is the most important mod/addition though, the other stuff is nice but the light will net you the biggest advantage IMO.
