Nice one! That model was my original choice but just got diverted to a great deal on the Marine model. The Express model is a very versetile lots of accessorries and barrel lengths to go for. Enjoy it and Congrats!

i have that. if the super magnum and magnums are the same.

the only problem i have had is when firing 2.75 inch shells, its easy to load the shell. but not pull the slide back far enough to cock the hammer.

The only differents between the magnum and the super magnum,Is the supermagnum uses 2 3/4,3 and 3 1/2 shells while the magnum uses only 2 3/4 and 3 inch only.:)

Nice shotty you have there. That's a perfect platform to start your own tactical shotgun if you'd like. I have the same one except it has an 18" barrel on it. I put a Knoxx SpecOps stock on mine to reduce recoil, and to save my shoulder from getting bruised. I may put a sling on it too, but nothing more.

Also later, if you want to install a mag extension, it would require drilling out some indentations that were made at the factory to prevent a mag extension from being installed. Anyway, have fun with your new shotgun, I know I have fun with mine LOL!!!!!!!
