    Hey folks
    Yesterday I went to the local pawn shop and bought a Mossberg Model 75 bolt action single shot 20 guage for $85. The barrel has already been cut down to 19 inches. I bought it just to have something light weight and fun to shoot. I was planning on having a little fun with the gun and maybe doing a little engraving on the receiver and stock but also cutting the stock down and making it into a pistol grip. I was wondering if it is legal to make it a pistol grip? I know that the barrel has to 18 inches and the full gun 26 inches. I've done some research on the internet and it's got me confused. I was also wondering about the laws on PGO shotguns. What has changed? Was curious because I own a Mossberg 500 Cruiser. By the way I live in Oklahoma.

    Sorry 'bout those tornadoes. By single shot you mean you have a single shot repeater with a two round magazine, right? I'd send it to PolyChoke, have them cut it further to a true 18" (+1/4") and have a nice Truck Gun right there.

    Pistol grip w/a bolt? Really!?

    Thanks my family and I are ok. I only saw a few funnels go over the house.
    It's a single shot, no magazine.

    Big Nasty. How come I didn't know you were in OK before? Why is it that I am finding out about all these potential shooting buddies when I am packing up to move?

    You should post pics of this little shotty, I wanna see.

    Thanks Dr
    You'll get use to it eventually. We get kinda lucky because we live as far east as you can go in Oklahoma, Stilwell to be exact. Most of the really harsh stuff usually dies down before the storm reaches us. But every now and then you'll here of a tornado dropping in the area. It's Oklahoma though, tornadoes are bound to happen. All you can do is stay safe and pray to the good Lord above.

    Are you sure you want to cut something that old up?

    Well I'm kind of having hard time deciding. It's only worth between $50-$100 but yet it is old and the stock is pretty.

    No point it cutting it down. It's a fine gun as it is. Can't be made into anything else. Something tells me you may find it becomes one of your favorite hunting guns down the road...
