Theirs the new to our area saiga shotgun and a few others that use magazine's.
Problem is their all 4 round magazine's.
Yes thats great for hunting but your not going to use that short saiga for hunting.
So here's the idea.Ive heard in old days some had single stack mags welded together to save time and what have you.
Do you know of anyone near TN that has or could do this with shotgun mags.
Itd likely be costly if so but a saiga holding 8 round 20 guage magazines would really be amusing to my 'rightwing extremist'self.
So far I havent heard of any laws against making your own gun or modifying it.
But comment on that one too please?

I THINK the legal limit for removable shotgun mags is 7.

Hunting mag limit is 5.

Thats a federal law?
When was it introduced.

Part of the assault weapon ban of '94 - listed on ATF site somewhere in the text of the bill.

There are laws that affect an owner's ability to make or modify guns, unfortunately. For example, you can't put an extended magazine tube on an otherwise legal shotgun with a pistol grip, or vice versa. Similary, you cannot use a post ban AR 15 receiver to assemble an AR15 with a flash suppressor or bayonet lug. (actually, you can't even do that with a pre ban receiver--it has to have been an assembled gun before the '94 law went into effect).
