    If you do not mind me asking, where did you get that barrel/sight combo? That looks like the XS sight setup they did for the DEA. I have been wanting to experiment with that combo.

    Thanks very much.

    I ordered it directly from Remington a few years ago. I called the LE department. I thought I saw them on Botach's website recently but they were out of stock. Just checked. I was wrong. They have the standard rifle sights and MOD chocked bbl there.

    These guys have them. https://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgwi/prod/27129



    Now I want a freaking tritium front sight!

The magazine spring in the gun looked like it was the standard length.

    I've had an SB Tactical brace sitting around for months looking for a purpose. I think it's found a new home.

    I ordered this Messa adapter and need to check my parts I know I've got an AR pistol grip kicking around.

    I recently bought a TAC-14, I also went for the wood furniture versus the plastic. Unfortunately, wielding it in the gunstore and actually firing it for an extended range period were extremely different experiences. I'm bone-on-bone in my wrist due to an injury, I should have realized that since I switch my AR grips to B5's for comfort, the shotgun handle was going to kill me.

    Long story short, I'll be looking forward to you relating your experiences with the Mesa adapter. Particularly interested in grip angle.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've bought several barrels from MGW, they are good to work with.

    So what would be the minimum in terms of quality and features for a double barrel shotgun project? Something not just for the fun of it. I think a youth length stock and 18" to whatever makes 26" OAL barrel is compact enough for me.

    Someone identified mechanical reset as a reliability feature. I assume double triggers would also be reliable, but also introduces a training issue.

    All the coach guns I see don't have ejection. That would seem to be a pretty big disadvantage for reload speed.

    OU is fine, probably preferred for the familiar sight picture. I'd be doing the work, converting a sporting shotgun, it seems coach guns lack the features I want.

    When I put on the bbl with the XS sights I quickly realized I could get a decent sight picture. That's when the hunt started for the adapter. I have a BCM LPK in my parts bin and it's angle will probably work well.
