Trade it in at the next gun buyback, laugh at the leftwing antigun idiots, make a profit, and get the Chinese POS off the market. Win-win-win.

Not a bad idea. I'm not near a big city where these things happen.

Use it for your next trade. It may be a 1st gun for some kid starting out if you do that.

I refuse to spend a penny inside Cook County. I may live in Illinois but I refuse to support the stupidity that takes place in Chicago with any of my money.

I have an old wichester ranger model 150 that has a cut pistol grip handle and the recoil is nothing. I can honestly shoot it one handed (not safe I know) and it dont kick hard. I had a 870 with a tactical pistol grip from Cabelas that feels like a true pistol and I loved it.

Shortening the barrel is a good mod. But have a gunsmith do it. and leave the stock as is.

the idea of enjoying a cheap gun is not to put money into it. once you sink money in it, youll want to take care of it.
leave it as it is and beat the daylights out of it having fun.

To have the barrel cut off and recrowned would cost more than the gun is worth. I would trade it or use it for a truck/barn gun. I would like to find a throw away pump like that to leave in my barn. Every time we get a chicken killing critter hanging around I end up killing it with one of the luckiest pistol shots I have ever seen. I couldn't duplicate the shot with a case of ammo.
