Looks like an awesome product.

What were your thoughts on the shootability and recoil in the semi vs. pump? Any at all?

Honestly about the same. It is easier to fire pairs and triples on the same target, but like we discovered, moving target to target makes no difference at all. It is a little shorter and I am not quite sure why yet...something about the design. Loading is easier with the 870 IMHO. Things this design needs -

1). Metal triggerguard
2). Replace MIM with steel
3). Bigger safety and carrier release
4). Dump the stupidly oversized Nordic mag clamp and replace with a Magpul (which we did)
5). NP3 internals
6). I will find a way to put rifle sights on this.
7). I suspect the barrel could easily be ported as well.

I have Swamp Thing researching the design for improvements

Has there been any significant investment in getting an Eotech to run on these? Eotechs are fan-fucking-tastic CQB reticles, and that circle of death + large FOV seem well adapted to the shotgun.

That all makes sense.

I definitely want mine to be ported. And a HFD2 Defender follower (I have extras and can send it in when your shop is ready to build).

Maybe full NP3, contingent on cost...maybe do it anyway, eff the cost.

Looking forward to it.

What do you think about a receiver mounted pic rail, as an option?

Does the crystal ball reveal a Surefire foregrip with integrated handstop?

When folded, does it still meet that magical 26" OAL ?

Again...the measure is with the brace extended, not folded. If things were measured folded, every single folding stock AK for one example, would be illegal (measuring 25"). Please lets all do our homework before proliferating unfounded information.
The measure is extended, not folded.

Do you have an ETA on when the SBA3 will be back in stock?

I will check with the ordering desk.

I certainly didn't expect an answer on the weekend, thank you for that. I'm curious about the RMR mount. Does it require machining of the receiver, or will it mount to the factory tapped holes?

Gabriel Suarez

Mounts into one of the holes...a second hole needs to be drilled.

Didn't mean to proliferate such, Sir. Just ignorant of the regulations involved. :sorry:You may consider me SCHOOLED. :approve:

Gabe,

I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on the pictured brace vs. the SBA3.

It all depends on how much you want to spend. I have a few SBA3s but don't happen to have them on my 12 ga weapons.

Just ordered the SBA3. Thanks for taking the time to test stuff out and post videos. It saves me a lot of money and time. And thanks for the free forum.
