Armscor/RIA M5 12 Gauge Fighting Shotgun
If I didn't have a Mossberg 500, then I'd be all over this!

Read Jeff Quinn's review here. The video posted below is a lot better.

For less than $300 who wouldn't want another shotgun?
Doesn't seem bad at all.

I'm thinking it might be right for a "Truck gun". Obviously state laws and discretion should be applied if used as a truck gun.

I looked it up on Bud's Gun Shop website and they were $200 when in stock.

These things will sell like hotcakes unless there's some fatal flaw to them.
I can't wrap my head around the price of basic pump shotguns these days - it's just insane. I won't pay it - I'll buy used instead.

This shotgun is priced to sell. The only problem is that standard stocks don't work for me. (LOP is too long and I prefer a pistol grip stock)
If they were smart, they'd have made it compatible with stocks for more popular brands on the market.
If they sell like hot cakes, somebody will come out with new stocks. If they don't then they're just stupid.

Then again, Armscor/RIA hasn't released a commander size 1911 yet.

I've been hunting around my LGSs for one of these for a few weeks with no luck. I stumbled on them by accident when I was checking out the RIA 10mm 1911s.

Only place I've actually seen one for sale is on GB and as usual the price is inflated and I'd have to pay shipping + transfer which makes this $200 shotgun more like $300. Dodgy
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.
If its a "fighting" shotgun then why doesn't it have an extended mag tube?

Looks good. 18” or 16” barrel would be better for HD but if it works well it’s a nice & much cheaper alternative to the Remington 870 Marine Magnum, of which I have two.

If you have a few extra bucks I would instead get the Escort MarineGuard 12 Gauge which is made in Turkey instead of China. The one I have is actually more solid than the 870 MM.

Shhhhh! Dont jinx it.

Anyone know what the cutout in the stock is?

My first thought was a bottle opener, but I'm guessing its some kind of spare ammo compartment.
