Yup. Stuff like this always comes along when I can least afford it. Very nice shotgun.

Thing needs a speed feed stock, a side saddle, a vented barrel shroud, and a pistol grip forend, as well drilled and tapped for a scope mount for a big BSA red dot.

I can do all that for the purchaser at an additional cost. I would also recommend screw in choke tubes and a breacher muzzle brake.

I would like to get things started but have a couple of questions first:

1. Is the red buttpad standard issue?

2. What is going on with the stock and forend, has the wood been stripped or sanded?

Neither are deal breakers, I would just like to know.

I am in at $2300.

1. Standard issue FN buttpad.

2. Not sure. I am not the original owner. I did wipe the fore end down with alcohol to get most of the grime off of it. Haven't touched the stock.

Good sir, in lieu of cash would you be willing to accept first-borns as payment?

I mean its not the going rate you should be worried about, you gotta factor in the work you can get out of a full lifespan. I mean we're talking about grade A Malaysian first-borns. None of those shoddy Vietnamese ones where you're only gonna get 20 years of hard factory work, tops.

Gorgeous, but does Tapco make furniture for it? Magpul is pricey! I kid I kid! That is beautiful!

Sorry, auction ended at 8:23. You bid too late. You should have bid earlier instead of looking for a loop hole.

Speedgunner is the winner.

Yeah, I was in Belize during the auction, up until today.
Good thing is they have no extradition treaty with the US.
