    Not much of a plus. Twenty 3" OO Buck weigh 3 pounds even. For any practical purpose the long vertical magazine is a liability IMO.

    I think the 10 rounders are going to be the happy spot. Maybe 15

    I think the 20 round magazine is impractical. The five and ten rounders are where I'd think most would find maximum utility. Keep the weight on the belt, or chest rig.

    I doubt if most folks are going to want to shoot a bunch of full bore 3" OOB.

    I agree but that was what I had to weigh without going to the safe. Remember I said practical,,, A battle that takes place in your bedroom isn't going to take more than 6 rounds to complete. I'll keep mine in an extended tube over a box magazine.

    I would agree with the bedroom/HD scenario. As of yet I have not read any long term reliability testing, but I haven't really been looking.

    I think the 15 rounders will be, all my 590's have a 9 round capacity as they are so the 10's meh.

    Be interesting to see if these take off among the competition crowd.

    I found the Mossberg to be superior when I compared it to the Remington at SHOT shot. Just felt better, looked better, and seemed more like a design then a retro fit. The Mossberg is also double stack.

    Remington is playing catch up to Mossberg. Mossberg was first to get with the BATFE and got approval for the Shockwave and Remington (as well as others) have followed them. Now with the mag fed pump guns as well.
