Tactical isn't a piece of equipment, it's a state of mind.

However, finding a stock without knowing more about the particular shotgun might be problematic. Charles Daly semi-auto shotguns have been made by a number of different manufacturers over the years. Numrich Arms lists several manufacturers over the years.

Are you wanting a pistol grip only style, or more like an AR style?

If PGO, I believe it will not be possible due to the recoil spring which is generally located in the stock

As I replied in your other post, on putting a pistol grip on an autoloader, the Remington 1100 in that case - virtually ALL gas-operated, and most long recoil, and some short recoil, autoloading shotguns are designed with a bolt return spring (AND it's carrier/housing) affixed to the rear of the receiver, precluding any buttstock except some sort of longer stock - why pumpguns are the best for conversion to the "Cruiser" config.

Knowing that, instead of asking about each/every shotgun you see - remove the buttstock from any prospect, and eyeball the naked rear of the receiver.

If it's projectionless, it's OK for a PG, if it has a long projection, not.
