Get a Shotgun

The Serbu Super Shorty is a cool gun. I’d prefer it on the 870 receiver over the 500 just because a button safety is easier to get to than a tang safety when your hand is down on a pistol grip.

Puts that whole “You don’t need to aim with a shotgun” myth to bed, doesn’t it?

    At one point Serbu was having trouble getting suitable Remingtons.

    To be an AOW it has to start life as a no-stock pistol grip gun.

    I am not sure if Remington is making them again or not.

      IIRC an AOW simply means the shotgun could never be a long-arm before. (another stupid law), I always assumed Serbu was buying virgin receivers from Mossy and Rem….maybe that is’t possible.

    According to your link, the SSS is based on the Maverick action. (870 and 500 available at extra cost)

    The Maverick, model 88 at least, doesn’t use a tang safety. It uses your (and mine) preferred button behind the trigger.

      Cool, I didn’t know that! (and I posted the damn link!)

      To be fair, I only prefer button safties on shotguns with pistol grips. My Mossberg 590 has a standard stock, and I find the tang safety on that shotgun to be ideal both for ambidextarity, but also its difficult to have it disengage accidently (did you read that story where a dog in a duck boat shot his owner when he stepped on the button safety and the trigger respectivly) but also you can visually inspect the safety in a normal firing grip.

      Not that I don’t have shotguns and rifles with button sfaties which run perfectly fine, its just not my ideal.
