oh sure Id be willing to deal with it. With training im sure I could "bottom load" relatively quickly but have to turn the gun upside down I dont think itd be as fast as an 870. A lose for a defense gun.
the open loading port is a win.
The fixed barrel is a huuuge lose for them and I might have to forget this idea altogether unless I can put together a frankengun built off another receiver and trim a barrel down. but for all that effort it makes the 870p look pretty good even if I do hate the feed ramp.
