Default Military Shotguns- Vietnam

Ran across some excellent photos of one really great display of shot weapons, including a bit of everything AND the ammo. Thought I'd share with yall-

Nice pics c3...where can I get some of those 12 ga. flachette rounds? Conspiciously absent from the display was Mossberg? Thought the 590 was a military issue?

If NJ laws are anything like MA, most of these rounds are not legal there.

I would love a winchester model 97 trench gun, I like the idea of a exposed hammer on any gun (except bolt action) main reason I don't like glocks.
