Let me preface the thread by explaining that I built this gun just to see if I could. It's an expression of my work, it's not my go to gun or practical in any way. I built this because I stumbled across a Stoeger Double Defense at a gun show and thought "What a lazy attempt at building a Tactical SXS Shotgun" So I got a 20" Stoeger coach gun at Dicks for $300 and added a few parts and created what I think Stoeger should have made. Here's a few of the parts I used I have to admit that it turned out far better then I anticipated. It's a fun gun to shoot. The pistol grip does help reduce recoil and increase my ability to control the gun and the collapsible stock brings the OAL down to 30" for storage.
