Default Bored + Rossi 20ga single shot

Sooooooooooooo I got bored the other day and remembered I had my Rossi 20ga single shot sitting in the gun cabinet. Hasnt been shot in a few years and I have plenty of other guns for hunting if needed (12ga or 410). I got the idea from youtube, saw a few videos on the Rossi riot gun I think it was. So here it is.

**Before anyone comments...I havent finished the grip (the bolt + 10 washers are exposed on the top side). Also, it IS legal length. 19.5" barrel with a 26.25" OAL. Cutting it close, but it IS legal. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Why didn't u just buy a piece of wood pre shaped into a pistol grip?

Second, you will find this very uncomfortable to shoot.

Heck, anybody can go out and buy a riot style shotgun...

The whole point was doing it for the hell of it.

1. Didnt want to spend money on this, as it was just sitting in the cabinet.
2. I could..depending on how you look at it. Other than the stability of the shoulder, the grip hasnt changed.

Trip-Exactly. Took a few hours total, after searching for washers to keep the grip stable

Nice work by the way, the pistol grip is well shaped.

Thanks!
I used a sharpie to mark where I wanted to cut before actually cutting. That definitely helped a bit.

If you do it, be sure to post. I'd like to see it

I've thought about a similar project but with a short buttstock instead of the pistol grip.

Took me a few days to decide whether to do this or cut it right next to where the original sling swivel was in. That wouldve taken of 2.5" of the stock. But with a full barrel and stock, the birdshot hurt the shoulder.
