You are good to go. Stick with Imp cyl or cyl tubes when using slugs and you will be fine.

I think masterPsmith was inferring that the use of cylinder or improved cylinder chokes would most likely result in the most accuracy.

Thsts a myth too every slug gun I've tried a modified tube in has always shot better with the modified tube

Default Update!!

well i shot the slugs and the gun is fine, however it shot a foot low at 50yds. it has a 28" barrel and i'm thinking of cutting it down to 18.5 inches. i'm getting a shorter stock too, as the one on it is too long for me. will a shorter stock help me?, or cutting the barrel down? i would like for it to shoot slugs good but if nothing else i'll make a good camp and trapping gun. thanks

No one can say if cutting the barrel will make it shoot better or worse. Why get a shorter stock when you can easily cut the original down? Did you try a couple different chokes?
