It talks about transforming your field gun into a defense gun. I think this can be done but its not the same as swapping my 870's 28" barrel for its 18" barrel when I get home from the range. This looks like it is more of a semi permanent transformation. If you want to retaling the ability to use a field gun, you may just want to look around for a short barreled Mossberg or even a Maverick. Whether or not you want the rifle sights is a matter of preference.

features a fixed cylinder choke for maximum pattern coverage at combat ranges.
Neverminding the ninja-speak about "combat ranges", I would prefer something tighter than a Cylinder choke.

$150 to add essentially two more rounds or so to your gun is a call you need to make - think about the added weight and your intentions and go accordingly

Call mossberg and order the 7+1 mag tube, spring and barrel...... Might be a tick more than $150 but you can revert any time you wish and swap to new gun etc...
