i tried cylinder and improved cylinder and 3 slug types winchester remington and federal. win were the lowest rem second the federal at 10 inches. my stock is synthetic if i cut it down no place for a pad. i have the pardner model single shot with the nickel receiver and 28" barrel with screw in choke. i thought nif i cut it down to 18.5 that it might help. thanks

You could always have it drilled and tapped and put a scope or red dot on it

the gunsmith in my area won't drill as he said it may weaken the chamber. may try the new stock before i have it cut. thanks

This sounds crazy but when I was a kid I had a single shot .410 and it was shooting off and my dad put the barrel in a vice and slightly vent the barrel and it shoot pretty close after that.....I don't know how have you are but it's an idea lol

I prefer not to shoot slugs through my shotgun with screw in choke, I've got an old cut down barrel i use for cheap slugs and a another gun with a rifled barrel which is my dedicated slug gun.

i tried a rueb shotgun sight halfway down the barrel and it helped as it lets me take part of the barrel and my shots went up. but its made from plastic and it could get moved from a solid hit to it. i have wondered about a barrel mount that would fit just in front of the forarm, then put a small red dot on the mount. do ya'll think that would work? thanks
