I found this project to be very interesting.  You certainly had to put a lot of time into it, and the end result was worth it.  The shotgun looks great!

Thanks.   it did take quite a bit of time.   And I took it slow as this was the first time I've ever done any sandblasting or worked with this type of paint process.


I got to shoot it last weekend.  I forgot one of my ammo cans when I headed for the cabin so I never got to sight it in using the sabot rounds but I put about 20 rounds of Remington Sluggers and a couple boxes of Buckhammers through it.

Results were sketchy. At 50 yards everything with inside a pie plate but I couldn't dial it in any better than that with this combination before my shoulder started screaming at me. I actually expected better results even considering that the barrel is not really meant for rifled slugs. I get better groups though my smooth bore barrels at the same range.

I'm really hoping for a better results when I finally get to the range with some decent sabot rounds.

As a side, I'm really bummed that Remington quit making those Buckhammers. It was a "censored Word" of a slug.

You did a fine job there my friend, Now get out there and kill something with it. That will be whipped cream on the pie, and meat in the freezer. Good luck
