I was just browsing through www.impactguns.com & came across this item.

How's that for concealed carry?:D Seriously, I know machine guns & suppressors need a $200 tax stamp but what about this gun?

Yes it does. Though I forgot weather or not it falls under the "AOW" class which should only require a $5 tax stamp instead of $200.

I just saw that it just requires the $5 stamp. Shame you have to be 21 to get items like SBS & suppressors:( . At least now I have a goal when I turn 21. Only 2 years to go.

the SUPER-SHORTY is considered an AOW (Any Other Weapon) and can be transferred with a $5 stamp

$5 bucks, seems like it would be no fun to shoot more than once though...:eek:

What a useless POS.

Blown patterns.

Low velocity/poor penetration.

No capacity. (3)

Painful recoil.

POS on all levels.

If someone was being annoying and talking big at the range, you could say, "yeah that gun is pretty big. Here, try this, I think you might like it." Problem solved :D

Saw a documentary on Discovery channel a few years back. It showed a couple of U.S. Marshals using guns like that while providing security for a Federal Judge. All they said about the gun was that it was very effective at taking out threats very quickly and at very short range.

Isn't that Ricco's shotgun from Miami Vice? None the less I love the look of that gun. Imagine trying to shoot a 2 oz. magnum turkey load from that thing. :eek:

You'll probably get muzzle velocities of 600 fps at best.

It's useless jewelry for a gunslinger wannabee.

I suspect something like that would only have real utility for breaching applications.

IIRC, the Marshal Service uses 14" barrels on theirs.

This gun has a 6 1/2" barrel. Anyone shoot a shotgun like this through a chronograph?

Good lord....some of your reasons decrying the existance of this resembles that
I see in the newspapers. Why have Saturday Night Special, oooh..an assault
weapon, a pen gun, a 50 BMG rifle, etc etc. Tools for the task, folks. I've
shot mini slugs out of that puppy and the effects from this midget is very
impressive. Just be realistic when you grab this, what its limitations are and
if it's applicable for your task.

I just saw that it just requires the $5 stamp. Shame you have to be 21 to get items like SBS & suppressors . At least now I have a goal when I turn 21. Only 2 years to go

Not so sure that you need to be 21 anymore (http://www.silencertests.com/silencer-forum/viewtopic.php?t=5397&start=50). A report from someone that
they've just been approved who is younger. Difficult to confirm at this time.

This falls into the Class III catagory. A class 3 dealer I know sells them and he said you have to get the $200 stamp to own one.

Nope, it is a $5 AOW. Now, if you want to put a full stock on in place of the pistol grip, then it becomes a SBR and will require the $200 stamp.

like David said, $5 transfer tax on an AOW. for your information, had the receiver
been registered and equipped with a shoulder stock sometime during its
manufacture/birth, then yes, it would be a SBS and then the $200 transfer
would be applicable.

But in this specific case, Mark Serbu converted this from a Mossberg Maverick
which was released by Mossberg as a pistol-gripped-sans-shoulder-stocked
firearm, thus it is an AOW.

Note that Serbu also has created similar using Remington 870s which left the
Remington factory in both pistol gripped, as well as shoulder stocked firearms.
As such, the 'shorty' would be AOW ($200 manuf tax....$5 transfer tax-from
the pistol gripped), or SBS ($200 manufacturing and transfer tax-from the
shoulder stocked firearm).

You need not be a Class 3 to transfer these. Use of that term is technically
incorrect as that is the SOT term for a dealer.

AOWs, SBSs, SBRs, MGs, SIs are properly referred to as Title 2 firearms.
Title 1 firearms are those you and I normally find at local gunstores (garden
variety rifle, pistol shotguns).

Class 2 is the term used to decribe manufacturers of Title 2 firearms.
