    Semi Auto Shotgun for Pump Action Shotgun

    Any interest at all in swapping a pump shotty for my Pardus SL semi auto? It's in good nick, only bad thing is I have no chokes for it and they are very hard to find. It is threaded for them though and other brands might be compatible but I am not sure. So yeah just be aware its full bore unless you find chokes.
    (These are basically a copy of the Berette 390 but with a different gas system)
    3 inch chamber
    Mag tube holds 5+1 2 3/4" and 4+1 3".
    It dampens recoil really well, I can go throuh 50 slugs and not feel a thing. My old Baikal single shot used to bruise the crap out of me from just one shot. That tells me that if you're a newbie or want to ease someone in to shotgunning without scaring the crap out of them this might be the go.
    Like most semi auto shottys it doesn't like light loads very much so leave your shitty 24 gram target loads at home, it seems to take 28 gram loads and above to cycle it reliably otherwise you'll randomly get failures to cycle and extract. I've never used a sub $1000 semi auto shotty that wasn't a picky eater, but I can tell you from experience what this one loves if it ends up as yours.
    Has sling loops
    Dovetail mounts
    Fibre optic front sight


    It's worth I'd guess $400. Gun City sell them for $700 but they have been on sale for $500 for a while now so that's what I am basing the value on.

    I'd like to swap it for a pump action shotgun that has dovetail mounts, like a Maverick 88 or something along those lines. Honestly I just want to swap for a pump to have something different and new because I've never shot a pump shotgun before, and it looks pretty fun. And I don't have room in my safe for this and a new pumpy so this one has to go.

    Good luck with that sale. Even the salesman at gun city refused to sell me one of those when they had them on special for $300.00 last year.

    Let me guess, they convinced you you'd be better off buying a Ranger shotgun right? :p

    Nah. I told him I wasn't going to buy anything else. He just didn't want the hassle of an angry me bringing it back all the time it malfunctioned.

    Eh I've put several hundred shells through it and the only malfunctions I had were with light loads not cycling, but I've had that with more expensive semi auto shotguns as well. It is what it is for the price hey.

    Point was Ranger is Gun Citys brand so their profit margains are a lot higher on Rangers which is why they push them so hard.

    Are Fabarm any good?
    I'm feeling the need for a semi for easier 2nd shots on clays but not sure.

    Over and under is quickest for that 2nd shot but some semis are pretty quick. Interesting stat, miss with the first and 65% of the time the 2nd misses too.

    I'm not worried about the recoil so much. It's whether it would cycle 28g 7.5 loads. Under over would be cool either way. The pumps ok for rabbits but not fast or steady enough on the second shot for clays or birds.
    Maybe I just need more practice
