    Been in the market for a 12 gauge, was mainly looking into 870s until I realized how cool these things are. Any input?

    Hard to find now, and if you find one, be prepared for a large sticker price.

    Otherwise, it's a good weapon.

    At least 3 gun stores here in town have at least one in stock, and they range between $500 and $750.

    SAIGA would be the better investment, 870's are easy to find who knows what the future will hold for SAIGA availability after obama takes over.

    AK pattern, semiauto shotgun with a detachable box magazine? Guaranteed it'll be banned by name.
     
  8. They're pretty cool. Local places are asking about $700 when they have them in stock.

    While very cool I still think the benelli m1/m2 super 90 is a all around better shotgun.

    agree, but some people require magazines/drums to justify the purchase of $$$$ shotgun

    There's one on Gunbroker for $560 right now, that's why I ask. Going to the gun show tomorrow, but I highly doubt I'll be able to find shit there.

    They used to be <$200 when they were first imported. I'm an idiot for not buying one then.

    those things are expensive and difficult to carry

    i'm just gonna get more 10 round Gen2 AGP magazines. :bowdown:

    you can get like 4-5 10 rounders for the price of 1 20 rounder IIRC
