    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....:D

    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. :D

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

    Mossberg 590 with rifle sights, model number 52682. You won't be sorry.

    I'd also save up another $90 & get a Choate top folding stock.

    If you haven't already completed the purchase, Google "Saiga-12 and check that baby out. It sounds like exactly what you are looking for but costs almost $600. I just ordered one and will let everyone know how it works. There is no end to the accessories and modifications available. Plus, it's black and wicked looking.
