SCARs are the cool gun in video games right now along with Benelli M4s.:p

I have an M4. I painted it.

I have one as well, sans the paint. Photobomb cross thread points?

First thing I replaced on my Benelli M4 was that round limiter tube. I picked up a full-length tube, plug, and knurled charging handle for that ATF requirement for American parts or whatever it is.

Hahaha, love the dog though. "What are ya doing? Does it have anything to do with treats!?!?!?!? I bet it does!" :biggrin:

I have been kicking around/researching and am going to add the additions you suggested; just have not gotten around to it and wanted to insure it was American parts for legality. Curious what you added.

I picked this one up for personal protection, and perceived lightened recoil, which it does. My very petite framed 15 yo daughter easily handles it. Pretty happy with the shotgun.


No Treats involved. He is a Golden Retriever puppy (still in his lanky phase) and very inquisitive. I am just thankful he did not mark the shotgun when I set it on the floor.

I kept it simple. Bone stock except for the single point sling adapter. Lives by the front door full of low recoil 00. (low recoil for the wife, she's a little bitty thing)

IIRC, the rule is that you have to have 3 US-made parts to satisfy some import law (I chose Tube, Charging lever, red plug). I think it's 922(r).

Just remember, if you are replacing the tube --- the tube is held to the receiver by Loctite and won't budge without hitting it with a heat gun or propane torch first. I was struggling with it, looked it up on YouTube, and hit it with my torch for a few seconds. Slid right off like butter after that.

I can't remember the site I got mine at, otherwise I'd point you in that direction.

Yes it is 922(r), seldom enforced though. If it wasn't for 922(r) Tapco would be tits up.

Years ago a blogger had a challenge that if one could prove a sucessful 922(r) conviction he would pay $10k. I do not recall the site though.

I like simple and stock. I recently sold my simple shotgun, but I think it went to a good home. I need to get another pump.

Can't really leave anything laying around due to kids (who are comfortable around whatever) but the law would differ.

The first gun I purchased after I turned 18. Looked around for about 6 months, even went to a local gun show to compare prices. Settled on this Benelli from a local gun store that has since closed. Paid $431ish out the door.

The Fat Guy 23 August 2016 22:55

The Nova and Super Nova are great pump guns. My only issue is the newer ones have a weird and aggressive fore stock. Price and reliability make this a great gun for everything from geese to skeet.

I've had a HK Benelli M1 Super 90 for the past 20+ years. Great shotgun.

GPC 27 August 2016 07:26

Took the Spas out yesterday 100 flawless rounds great shotgun.
Don't know why folks trash talk them? Before shooting I did replace the buffer and stock shock absorber. Found it very mild for recoil and accurate throwing slugs. Kept right up with my buddies Benelli.

I've never shot one. Are they as front heavy as they look? I've always had the impression of a lot of weight on the front of the SPAS 12, like it would be a burden to keep it on target for any length of time.

Not that front heavy IMO. Rapid fire very little muzzle rise out of it.

Only have two shotguns. 870 and 1187 Police model. Like all my firearms I like to keep the customization very light. Both have the Hans Vang back-boring to keep the patterns tighter. Both have Scattergun Technologies (now Wilson Combat) ghost rings. I had the gas ports of the 1187 opened up slightly to run low recoil loads. Works great with low recoil buck. Not so much with birdshot.

^^^Very nice shotguns, Brother! I like them just the way they are.
