Just purchased one of these yesterday. The local gun shop had a sale on them. I purchased the mariner pkg marked down to $300 because the tube that it came in was cracked. Talked him down to selling it to me for $275. The multi-tool and knife that comes with it is really nothing at all...good 'ol plactic from japan. I went straight to the hardware store and purchased a large pvc pipe and end caps. I used the rubber seal and bolt that came with the JIC tube and it fits very nicely on the pvc pipe. I tested the seal on it by submerging the pvc tube in a bathtub full of water and it was water-tight!

I noticed that the original tube that it came in wasn't really all that...very thin walled and can see how easily breakable it is.

The shotgun itself is Mossberg's 500. I don't know much about shotguns or their prices. I purchased this for the purpose of having it on my boat in the summer time. After researching the prices of the 500, I believe that I got a good deal.
