I bought a combo set with plastic stock for a little under $300 OTD. I then sent the modified choke vent rib barrel in to Polychoke. I had it shortened to 20" with the Polychoke installed. It is now a survival gun. Very capable for HD/SD but you can still use it in the field with bird shot. No tools or screw in pieces required. Going full choke extends the 00 range to 50/60 yards. There is also a rifled slug setting. I would consider selling the unfired 18.5" cylinder bore barrel.
