I like that. A LOT. Too bad in USA it's a $200 SBS tax stamp over and above the purchase price.

Can you still hunt grouse and squirrels with it?

dumb question but is it a pump action or gas operated? I assumed it was gas operated at first but I cant see where you "rack it" for the first initial shot. the bolt looks like as if it's a pump.The forestock doesnt look pump like, perhaps do to the short barrel? CLoser look of the forestock and I beleive this little badboy is a pump.

It is a pump.

Fabarm makes sweet guns. I have this same gun with a long bbl, and regular stock. It is so light, but still has very little felt recoil; even with magnum loads.

Congrats NINE on the fine item there.

Hey nine i just bought the same gun 3 weeks ago ( identical )
First thing i did that u should do is take out the magazine pin so it can hold
4 + 1
the next thing i did to mine was put on a ecotech hologram sight and a
" meat grinder " style muzzle break
with the holo sight its way accurate with slugs and with the muzzle break it looks bad a$$ and reduces muzzle rize by atleast 30%

I must reiterate - that has to be the most kick-a$$ shotgun I've ever seen. If anything is worth a USA SBS tax stamp, it's that one! That is the perfect home defense shotgun, for my money.

BTW, as if it wasn't bad enough rubbing it in with us Americans in this thread, you just had to additionally post the Fabarm in your other thread with pics of all your guns!

Great looking weapon, not sure if I like the muzzle break or not though. PM'd you (nine) about where you got it, because I am having a tough time finding anybody who stocks these at a decent price. Thanks, and looking great.

NINE, I mean this with the utmost respect and admiration; man, you suck! No, I'm out of line. Some of our U.S. laws suck! Congrats on the beautiful new shotty. The photographs and video were really conducive to my bad mood over our inability to 'keep and bear' as we see fit. Sheesh. Drats!

Recently bought and installed a sling plate for it... it's the only way to fly.

Is that a barrel extension when your turkey hunting? It doesn't look like the "meat grinder"... The single sling point looks pretty good.

In the turkey hunting shots, it's a screw on full choke. There is a range of choke sizes available for these guns, but they come from the factory with a cylinder choke and a full.
I have the exact same gun as Nine and I love shooting it.

The extended full choke. These targets are @ 20 yards. 2 3/4" winchester "heavy game" loads. #4 shot. (walmart white box stuff)






target 1


target 2


target 3 (shot a bit high on this one)

The ghostring sights rock. Here is a 50 yard slug vs 2l bottle vid: slug-50yrds

A pic of the damage:
