  1. Hi, are there any collectors here that can give me some guidance? im a big shotgun fan and have several but over the last 4 or 5 years I've developed a particular interest in combat shotguns or ones that have been used by the military and police around the world. The vast majority of these have barrels that would deem them a S5 but my interest is in the type of gun, the manufacturer and operation so UK legal Sec 1 or even 2 (to a lesser degree) I find acceptable. I already have an 870, a M37DSPS and an 1897 but want to expand the collection with maybe 4 or 5 already high on my wish list. My question is, is it feasible to collect this type of firearm in the uk and are there any collectors out there with similar collections that could offer advice that aren't RFDs. I really don't want to bother my FLO at the moment as I'm sure he's mad busy inundated with applications from lunatic preppers wanting to buy Glocks and AKs. TIA.
  2. That needs a little trim I think. Are these pics from books you have? Just bought a copy of Street Sweepers to fuel my historic combat shotgun obsession.
  3. 👍 they've recently sold out. Think I'll get an order in for when they're back in stock.
  4. Here's the part. They do them for ithacas too but my DSPS is original and I wouldn't want to go cutting a groove in that barrel to fit the lug. 👍
  5. Where the heat shield would finish is my concern, I think it stopping half way down the pump corn cob would annoy me. I was hoping someone would have done it already so I could see one done. Its not like I'm trying to fake a trench gun I just fancy sticking a bayonet on this shotgun. It's a takedown model wher as the real trench guns weren't so it would never be a true representation of one even if we were allowed 20" barrels.
  6. They are available in the States and I have someone that can send me one but the trench guns have 20" barrels and mine has been cut down (not by me may I add) to the uk minimum legal length of 24". Just wondered if it would look ok or not.
  7. Hey pumpers. Has anyone fitted a bayonet lug and heat shield to a uk legal 1897. I fancy adding one to mine but I'd like to see one done first.
  8. Yep, what ☝️Said. I’m hoping to add one to my little colllection at some point.
  9. It's a DSPS and yes it loads and ejects from the underside. Slam fires too for when you just need to burn money that little bit quicker
  10. I had one of theses in the late 70s use to pump it up for ages thinking it would make it more powerful 🤣 In my defence I was only about 8 or 9 years old.
  11. Well my pump family has gone through some changes over the years, some come, some go but these are all keepers.
  12. I've got an Aldi Router table unused that I'm happy to let you have foc. I've never even looked in the box. Im only at redcar and will be working at Hartlepool next week if you want to collect it from either location. Ill get it out and have a look tomorrow. Feel free to message me an email address or mobile number and I'll send you pics if you like.
  13. It is, everyone loves it. I won't be upset if I have to keep it. I'll have to buy another safe tho 😂
