View Full Version : Mean looking shotgun reccomedations

April 18, 2006, 01:40 AM
Hi, I'm currently wanting a very mean looking shotgun, just to have it for no real reason. ( new york city )

I want the meanest looking, as if an assault team just came in my door looking for a meth lab.

I want it to black, intimidating tactical looking, semi auto.

Something with very little recoil kick. maybe something with both pistol grip and shoulder stock ?

but a low price say.. $ 250-350 ?

leads anyone ?

For purely looks, I've always liked the 870 Marine Magnum. To me, theres something about the nickel finish that's a real attention grabber.


If you must have a black semi-auto.....11-87


Then visit Knoxx Industries for accessories of your choosing.

that is the hight of mean in shotguns unless you are gona buy a street sweaper, however as it's a lot more than your price range look at a cheap used remmington 870 and add on as you have the money, if you want it black spray it with any of the at home spray / teflon gun coatings from brownells.

I don't know if you can get mean looking for that price, but see what ya think of this. Check out www.lionhearttactical.com shotgun page shows pics of my REM. 870
Come to think of it if your looking down the recv. end it looks pretty mean regardless of price:eek: :D
No pics of the 11-87 yet but you will get the picture.

I'd say your expectations are unrealistic. You want a tactical semi, but you're only looking to pay the price of a typical pump gun. You might be able to get a Charles Daly autoloader or something similiar for that price range, but it likely won't be very tactical without some work on your end.

If you don't mind settling for a pump, you can probably get a Maverick 88 Security and a Sidewinder drum magazine conversion for ~$400 if you shop around hard enough.

Edit -

I want the meanest looking, as if an assault team just came in my door looking for a meth lab.

I'm still wondering what exactly that is supposed to mean... perhaps it's better if we don't know...

"Just another Rambo wannabe"

I dont know what that means, but I dont like rambo. and I dont like sitting in the woods with a hole in my leg where I need to put gunpowder in it, light it up, and scream where the whole mountain hears me... hehe

Thank you all who had recommendations !
