ClydeFrog Hi Ho TFLers;
My bud & I are looking to get new "Super Shortys" from Serbu Firearms, www.SerbuFirearms.com .
I'm a left-hander & was looking into any member insight to learn if the gunsmiths can convert a standard LEFT HAND 870 Express into a Super Shorty at the Tampa Florida area factory.
The site states they use model 500 Mossberg 12ga shotguns or the Remington 870 as custom add-ons(upgrades).
I'm not much into Class III/AOW stuff, but a SBS(short barrel shotgun) may be practical for some jobs & a cool item to own....
The Serbu Shorty isn't an SBS, but an AOW. The transfer fee is only $5 for an AOW, it's $200 for a Short Barrelled Shotgun.
If you get tired of the Serbu you can't just add a buttstock without paying for ANOTHER $200 tax stamp. If its taxed and registered as an SBS you can configure it any way you want.
Serbu Shorty $705 + shipping + transfer + $5 tax stamp
870 LH $375 + $200 tax stamp + hacksaw
