I was in the Hue Phu Bia area in 70 & 71 and our arms room had a rack of assorted shotguns but mostly Remington's and Ithaca's. my troops preferred the Remington's for patrols when required by the op officer. In my unit the shotguns lost out to the M16 with the M203 in the late 70's, with most troops carrying a combination of HE M433 or shotgun rounds. The one disadvantage of the M433 it required 15 to 30 meters to arm and the added weight of each round.
