  1. I’m not being funny... find some different slugs that work versus tweaking your gun.
  2. It might be a lot easier to replace the front with a higher sight. i really like these... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E8PNRM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Not sure if they are taller.
  3. 1st things I thought about was trigger, chokes?, and trying to dump in a barrel with a drum or extended mag.
  4. If you cut it down, you will need to get the barrel threaded by a gun smith. There are stages with 20-25 yard knock-over targets and smaller closer targets, and a 18" open bore will not be able to knock them down with standard ammo. I see this happen a lot at matches.
  5. I’ve had ghost rings, rifle sights, and rib with dovetail rear sites. I’ve tried them all. For 3 Gun either rifle, or a rib front fiber optic dot with a rear dovetail or some other rear alignment. Ghost rings are not as fast for 3gun when you start taking long slug shots. There are a lot of good shooters that just use a front fiber optic dot, but target acquisition +50 yard slug shots are slower without a rear sight.

  7. I ran a M1 18.5" no choke threads for a year, then bought a 18.5" M2 treaded barrel for chokes. I shot this for about 4 years at many matches until going to a Browning A5. There are some nice advantages to the M2 18.5" like rifle sights for slugs and precision shots, lighter weight for quicker target acquisition (when your skills get there) and stages with closer open targets using an open choke, you can blast away without precision aiming. The main disadvantage with the 18.5" barrel is you alway have to worry about the target distance and choke selection. Longer barrels have a lot more forgiving patterns. I was constantly stepping off target distances to get the best advantage I could at the target distances along with ammo selection on non-typical targets (spinners etc...). There are a couple of things you might want to do to the sights. I used some bright orange model paint, oil based, on the rifle sights (paint grooves). You can do just the front or also the rear. I also had a fiber optic put in the front rife sight (get a good gun smith, it is a little risky considering the sight part of the barrel).
  8. USPSA says 19 foot fault line. https://uspsa.org/viewer/RifleShotgunMultigunRules.pdf
  9. You can't go wrong with the Tru-Ball. I have been using them for 5 years with no problems. I would buy the copper plated if still available. The have a little more pop than other lower recoil slugs, but the have always worked well in my Benelli and Browning A5. I have shot them in my Remington VeraMax, but they lead up the forcing cone section of the barrel really bad .... and I hate to clean guns!
  10. That was not listed as a choice and I was trying not to hijack this post to that beat down discussion. The auto-load feature is a huge advantage for new shooters.
  11. The Versa. The only issues I had had is it’s heavy and the slugs were wild (Benny will fix that). The M2 will probably last longer.
  12. I have suggested to my A5 customers that they shoot 1200fps 1 1/8 oz Winchester AA or other premium quality semi-auto type equal. I would not shoot the 1145fps until well broken in (1000 rds) and would not shoot them in a match. I have some shooters shooting 1145fps 1-1/8 oz premium shells with no issues if they keep the gun oiled and clean. Concerning recoil (not reliability), I have put random 1145 and 1200 shells in the tube and have a hard time telling which one is which.
  13. Here is the Nordic ext at Shooter's Connection.. http://www.shootersconnectionstore.com/Nordic-MXT-Shotgun-Magazine-Extension-Kit-12ga-P4221.aspx I shot a Benelli M1 with a 18.5" barrel and a 7 round extension (10 round tube total) for two years without any issues of shot hitting the 10 tube extension. I have seen some REALLY long open class tubes welded together. I suggest using a 10 round total or 12 round total tube. This will give you either a "Two-Load" (10 tube) or a "quad-load" (12 tube) off the start signal. I have always preferred the 10 tube for safer maneuvering and "throwing" in the dump barrel. I have seen some long tubes bounce out of the dump barrels with excited shooters. (One on the second stage of the KY State Wildcat 3gun Match... with initials TJH :) )
