someone tell me what this 870 will do that my 870s or mossbergs wont? I literally have thousands of rds through my pumps with not a single malfunction at all. I just don't see the value? I mean, you could buy a top of the line benelli m4 plus have a ton of money left over.

    Naw, its custom TACTICAL![;)]

    I'd much rather have a Benelli M4, as stated. You could buy a buttload of slugs and buckshot and still have money left over.

    I would be sporting a Benelli M4 and a new Sig for that kind of jack.

    Buying a name mostly.

    I bet if it was a shiny 1911 Kimber most of the nay sayers would be willing, when a Rock Island would do just as good

    Its cool. But factor that a typical defense shot gun can go for less than 500 bucks. And he probably has maybe 500 into it. I would pay no more than 500 for any pump shot gun or really any shotgun period. In the end if he had 1000 on it, it would probably be a fair price all things considered.

    Over-accessorized, over-hyped, and over-priced.

    Ditto for Scattergun Technologies.

    My cobbled-together-from-parts 870 will do what those guns do, and I have less than $200 in it.

    Two quotes come to mind:

    "There's one born every minute."

    "A fool and his money are soon parted."

    Those quotes apply to those who bought into Spillman Technologies as well. [xx(]

    have any of you ever even held any of their weapons?



    there is a good reason nighthawk and wilson gets 3k+ for their 1911's, and high dollar for their 870's



    in comparison they are to guns what saleen, hennessy are to cars

    Yes, I have held and examined a very over-priced Scattergun Technologies 870. Nice shotgun, but not worth the sticker price. Anyone with a modicum of skill and a Brownell's catalog can build an equivalent shotgun in his garage for way less money.

    I do like Hennessey cognac. What's a Saleen? Isn't that a Mustang with a lot of aftermarket parts and a decal added?

    Yep, and way over priced just like the "tacticool" guns we're talking about.

    this is funny, it reminds me of the opions from yugo owners i the 80's, and even more current hi-point handgun owners


    why pay more for the same thing lol
