    they have one at the local gun shop but the bolt does not stay open on an empty mag.is this normal?also the safety is really hard to push down.its brand new for $450. any opinions on this. i was going to sell my 870 to buy it.

    Only the newer production ones have the BHO, you also loose that if you plant to convert it anyway, $450 is about the going price now a days. :hs:

    lose.

    and 450 is a bit high IMO, especially if that doesnt include taxes. i paid 430 out the door for mine, but sold it. i just couldnt use it at all anywhere around here. i might convert a saiga 7.62... really thinking about it.

    my god. no wonder they have to lower the price so much - worst website evar.

    edit: I give up. I can't find it on their site. Anyone else?

    its probably 399... thats not an out of line price. i highly doubt they would be selling the 12ga for 299. every chance a gunshop gets to steal your money, they will.

    Bolt holdopen is a manual BHO, not a Last Round BHO. Only Jeric modded S12s have the LRBHO, until Cobra finishes his internal LRBHO.

    MD isn't taking any more preorders? I could have sworn he said he had more available the other day. I should buy one, and since I just got dumped and moved out of the APT, maybe next month's rent is going to a MD drum.. hmm.

    I doubt eds (which is now nicks) has them for 299. I would have noticed when I was in there.

    Are the S12's still in production? I had a gun store try to tell me that they weren't being made anymore.
