View Full Version : Tricking out Remington 11?

I checked prices on Mossbergs...500 with ghost ring is $320, 590 with ghost ring is $430. Could somebody suggest better source, as these look high.

Given the amount of $$$, I am thinking of tricking out my Rem 11 instead. For $35, I can get the barrel cut from 28" modified to 18,5 or 20" cylinder. Extra $20 would get me a "day-glo tube" front sight (any disadvantages to those?).

The object would be to give me a shotgun that is easier to aim and handle.

Would it still cycle with a shorter barrel? Would recoil be noticeably different? Any other caveats?

Save trouble. Send it to Scattergun Technologies. They do some awesome conversions!

CR I've read here that Wallyworld has good prices on the Mossbergs. I haven't had a chance (or money) to check them out yet but plan to.
