Default Recommendations for a tactical Shotgun

I am looking to purchase a pump action tactical shotgun with a lot of accessory options I can eventually add on to it. The only 3 requirements I have is:

1. Would like to stay under $500.

2. Barrel length of 18 to 20 inches.

3. All black.

Your responses and recommendations are much appreciated.

Big 5 sports had the Mossberg 500 persuader for $279 a while back. You want tactical spend another 100 and put a new fore grip on and a new stock.

Took your advise on the used 870. I went to 3 pawn shops today and found one for $285. It's all black and looks brand spankin new. It has a 20in barrel but I am thinking about cutting it down. Whats your opinion for barrel length on a tactical shotty? Does anyone know how short I can make it according to Maryland state law?

Federal law requires 18" to stay out of trouble. Hopefully, you're not going to grab a hacksaw and chop away. Do a search as we recently had a thread about cutting down barrels...

I was going to take it to a gunsmith. I don't trust myself enough to do any cutting on any fire arm....

If you are looking at this for tactical and survival, Think about sending the barrel in to Polychoke. You can have a very versatile weapon with a 20" barrel.

Damn...thanks man...I can take my used one back to the Pawn shop since they have a 7 day return policy and I can take a 1 hour trip to Cabelas and get a brand new one for $5 cheaper.

Before you do that...please call your local Cabela's to confirm they are running the same sale.

Or maybe print the flyer and show it to your pawnshop and ask for a discount.
