Re: Don't tell anyone

That's an obvious problem. I hunt private land in a State that allows rifles for private land gobblers. If I'm going to shoot a 100 yard bird it will be with something a lot more economical than a $10.00 shotgun shell. Btw - I frequent both this forum and that "other forum". Enjoy them both and see...

870 12 vs 20 receiver/stock interface angle

Is the angle between the stock and receiver the same on the 870 12s and 20s?

I may try my hand at making a speedbead for the 20 gauge if so.

Re: Drill and Tap 870

Even on a 20 gauge there is an insane amount of metal on the top of the receiver. In fact, my mount screws only go about half way through and they torque up just fine.

Those guys are nuts.

True, but not a traditional roll crimp.
I'm not sure what you mean by that.
I thought the longbeards had some type of fold and roll crimp.
Nah they’re roll crimped. They used an overshot card that looks like a fold crimp.

Re: 20ga O/U BUILD IDEAS

I really saw no other options aside from the CZ Mallard that has 2 triggers. I got one a couple of years back and had Briley make an eccentric choke for the bottom barrel.

Re: 870 20ga compact or full size?

The 21" barrel is why, I replaced the stock on mine anyways. I actually bought the Compact Jr which has a 18-3/4" barrel but I couldn't get the results I wanted out of that particular barrel. So, my wife and I swapped barrels, and her 21" wasn't great either. I ended up doing the Remington rebate a ...

Re: Some Bones From Brams Bones

I had one of Bram's bones, identical to the one in the middle.

I had it in a cargo pocket and sat down to call a turkey, I guess my pants got tight and it snapped it in 2.

I glued it back together and it still runs, it's just not as pretty.

Re: First 12ga TSS Rem 870 IC .665 3" 2oz 8's

The number of pellets per ounce can be off for many reasons, most likely the density is higher than expected. Also, they could be slightly oversized. It's nothing to sweat, but very few batches come out exact.

Re: CZ Mallard Barrel Regulation

I've sent an O/U to Briley for regulation correction before. They re-threaded the barrels and put it spot on. There was a little back and forth to convince them regulation should be spot on for windage at around 15 yards, but they did it. And it was for free, because they do Yildiz for free. Yildiz...

Re: CZ Mallard Barrel Regulation

Briley made me an eccentric choke for a Beretta O/U some years ago. It did work just fine and the process with Briley went very smoothly. That gun was off 8" vertically at 30 yards. If you were to go that route, I would look at doing the eccentric choke on the barrel you plan to have the more open ...

Re: CZ Mallard Barrel Regulation

I understand everything you're saying, however the gap is larger at 40 yds than at 30. 30 yds was chosen because that is the routine that Briley has you follow so that they know how to cut the chokes. Firing 3 shots with each barrel (I actually did the test 2 different times for a total of 12 shots)...

Finally hit the pattern board today to check the POI difference between my two CZ Mallard barrels. They are about 5.5" off at 30 yds. I'm assuming most of you wouldn't worry about, and would just hunt, I want both barrels to be dead on at 40 yds for a follow up shot, or a shot on a 2nd bird if neede...
