    Idk if It could handle steel, but i know that it safely shoots 32g and 36g loads, have shot a lot through it and it's still tight and fit as a fiddle

    37" over all with 20 inch barrels, I've got a milling machine so I could always shorten the barrels so it would be just over legal length. And I would say $300 as it's a mint shotty and still in pretty good nic

    steel runs higher pressures and older sxs wont handle it for long .if you want a sxs buy a new one designed to handle steel ammunition. been through this with a gunsmith older sxs best left to lead only.

    CZ make a side by side hammer coach gun.
    Looked at getting the longer barrelled one, but had no luck getting any gun store to even try and price it up for me.
