  1. http://davesmetalworks.com/ben12.htm i have the 7+1 on my M2T. it's flush with the barrel.
  2. There is a 3-round restriction that covers migratory game birds (waterfowl and some others) & is a federal restriction. It's not worth the trouble or expense to hunt w/o the plugs installed.

    and so it begins....
  4. yea 25. it must be heavy and take a hella of a long time to fully reload
  5. Thanks creeper. i don't plan on putting a sight on it but i've read (here) that mounts can pop off of the rails like on the m4. have you had any problems? thanks
  6. Fair enough. candy caning slugs and 00 is the best ticket for my situation. That's what's so great about shotguns. the versatility of using different ammo. I can start with a #7, then 4-00 buck and then 2-slugs. gotta love it!
  7. i just did a quick google search and it's either sold out or listed as a seasonal item. yea 50 yards is pushing it. i usually have 00 for my 1st 3 shells and the rest in the tube are slugs. i figure i'll get them in the door way and blast them as they run away but i'm out in the boonies on farm land.
  8. i hope you can locate some #1 buck. check this quote. Peter Capstick said this about buckshot selection in Death in the Dark Continent Quote: "I would like to mention one very important factor in choosing a buckshot load for dangerous game, and that concerns shot size selection. Most people would automatically pick 00 buck simply becuause it's so well know through TV westerns. In fact, the 12-pellet 12-gauge "baby magnum" load of 00 is considerably inferior to the same maximum powder loading of small NO. 1 buckshot in the same shell. The difference lies in the simple and astonishingly obvious fact that at .33 caliber, 00 buck is so large in the shell that there is much wasted space that could otherwise be filled with lead if the bearing surfaces of the big, round pellets didn't have to come into contact with each other. But they must. No. 1 buck is .30 caliber, only ten percent less in diameter than 00 buck and but thirteen grains per pellet lighter. However, because of the way the pellet mass fits into the shotshell, the same shell can fire an incredible seventy-five percent more pellets than the Magnum 00 load! What this means is that when you need help in a big way, you're launching eight hundred grains of lead at better than three thousand foot-pounds at the muzzle with No. 1 buck compared with a bit over six hundred grains and not quite twenty-four hundred foot-pounds with the 00 buck. If you don't reckon that can make a significant difference, you've never had something try to eat you. One might also bear in mind that eight hundred grains of lead in a swarm has the individual pellet impact area of an umbrella, for even though still in a solid mass at more or less ten yards, it covers a circular saturation point of about a 7-inch circle. Eight hundred grains, remember, equals a .458 PLUS a .375 at point blank, and you've got two barrels of the stuff, minimum.":) i wonder if #1 is cheaper than 00? probably
  9. Why are you knocking being 23? I think that ageism in this case is ad hominum. i'm not trying to attack you. i just don't think you should be so quick to disagree with someone that's almost 3 times your age. I have a 20yr old daughter who thinks she knows it all too and is quick to disregard a little wisdom from time to time. always so quick to grow up but when you get older you'll say it's just a number. 1100 were the sh*t when i was growing up but yea you had to change barrels for magnum and non mag shells. that's as long as you had a magnum receiver. it was mainly about what we were hunting. dove and quail you would use the 2.75 barrel and duck,geese and pheasant you would use the 3" magnum barrel. replaceable chokes were a luxury back then too. if it matters at all i did sell my 1100 w/ 3 barrels for my M2T and i love the **** out of it. it eats anything and everything i feed it but now i need a field gun. what do you think about the ultra light. that would make benelli 2 and rem 1100 1. only because i'm saving my 1st gun, a 1981 remington 1100 featherweight for my youngest son.
  10. aint nothing wrong with a 20ga. i still hunt dove with a 20. if you want the lightest 12 ga. check out the ultra light. you may have to trim the buttstock but i think it's the lightest bird gun out there.
  11. i didn't say down for the count but if will knock him on his butt. I have no problem using buckshot, people just need to be cautious when using it in closely populated areas.
  12. you are so right gene. having shot 1100's since i was 12 for dove, duck, pheasant and trap i know what your talking about. you couldn't shoot light loads in a magnum receiver so you had to get a 2.75 barrel but you needed the mag for the big birds. it's just the way it was back then. unless you wanted a pump gun. you're getting in a pissing match with a 23 yr old kid who just bought the best combat shotgun available but doesn't have a clue about other shotguns that have been around longer than he's been alive. can't blame him for loving the m4 though.
  13. anybody using or used one of these? how the fit and finish? are the rails all jacked up and out of spec? any other options out there? i'm looking at one for my m2 mainly for the side saddle but any input is appreciated. thanks
