    For accuracy using sabot slugs. Mainly in states/areas that require shotguns only

    What he said...Foster (rifled) slugs were designed to function in smoothbore barrels...Sabot slugs were designed to function in rifled barrels

    👆🏻I’m just bucking the system. 😎

    Got the +2 magazine extender in today. 

    About the only thing left I may add are front and rear HiViz FO sights. But, they are out of stock currently.

    To each his own, and you are an expert... seems like a really long gun for HD.

    Im new to shotguns and looking to get one soon. What is the reason for a rifled barrel ?
    To shoot slugs vs. shot, sabot slugs primarily, but Foster slugs work also as this thread reveals, the rifling improves accuracy of a single projectile.

    edit to add, sorry, did not see the other posts.

    I think he's got a few more compact options in the inventory.

    It’s simply a tool in the toolbox with its location. It’s not the ONLY tool in that box, however.
