    Very cool rifle, I mean pistol JT. Thanks for the tip on that brace too. The point about how the actual difference(s) between a pistol and a rifle can be minimal to nil is well taken. My preference for a "regular rifle" is primarily because it seems like it may make things simpler when it comes to travelling with the weapon and staying in compliance with various locales' laws than it would with a pistol.

    New β€œPistol” from Big Green

    Thanks for the replies 98Z5V and suzukiray. I did not mention it initially but the Armalite AR10TAC14 version I am most seriously considering does not require an NFA stamp as it has a 13.5" barrel extended to 16" via a pinned and welded brake. I'm not adverse to doing what's needed NFA-wise to purchase a "true" SBR and a suppressor (get the stamps, etc.) but based upon what I've read in some other threads here and heard from other SBR owners something like this rifle that does not require NFA compliance might make more sense for me. One reason for this is that I would regularly be travelling out of state to hunt with it and do not want to jump through the hoops required to transport it as is required with a "true" SBR. I am aware that a .308 pistol w/a brace could also get around all these hassles too and could be a smart choice but I would prefer having a regular rifle with a short(er) barrel. This particular model does not have Armalite's competition brake 98Z5V but does have one of their "Flash Suppressing Compensators" as pictured at the URL below. Do you (and everyone else that reads this...please share your opinion) think it will be about as good as the Armalite Competition Brake? https://www.armalite.com/product/ar10tac14-tactical-rifle/

    Thanks for the reply jtallen83, I can now be sure that the concerns about SBRs typically being louder are legitimate. I'm going to give some serious thought to a .308 SBR build. I enjoy reading the .308 build threads here and get tempted to give it a try partly because I think pretty much anything that could go wrong has its solution/forewarning posted here somewhere. It would definitely be a good learning experience and as I only have Armalite rifles a DPMS pattern .308 SBR battle rifle might be cool.

    Narrator: "The ultimate Wal-Mart open carry pistol has arrived..." I predict Remington will sell millions of these here in Indiana alone. Kidding aside I really do like these pistols, especially the .308 but they are probably not something I would actually buy. They are a very cool spin on the good old Model 700 though. BTW are short(er) barreled unsuppressed .308s much louder than their 16" or 18" (or longer) barreled rifle counterparts? I'm seriously thinking about getting an Armalite AR10TAC14 w/open sights only for close range/heavy cover whitetail hunting but have some reservations about this that are related to hearing damage. I have heard from SBR owners and found multiple other pretty solid sources that rifle cartridges fired from short(er)-barreled rifles are usually much louder than their longer barreled counterparts. I have not found any hard data w/decibel measurements, etc. on this though and it's all been anecdotal (e.g. "shooting a .308 SBR is very unpleasant, felt like I got punched by an MMA fighter", etc.). Though I do not typically crank out alot of rounds while deer hunting w/out hearing protection my wife already complains enough about me having the TV too loud as it is.

    Very cool,. πŸ‘

    Mossberg Nightstick. Oh, shiit...

    I meant to say that California is closer to Mexico than Indiana so it seems like their ammo should be at least as easy and inexpensive to obtain in CA as it is here. I cannot lie...I like California and Aguila ammo including their subsonic Super Colibri .22lr. Anyway, here's an interesting article on Aguila: https://www.americanhunter.org/articles/2016/7/14/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-aguila-ammunition/

    I did not have a problem with it but it sounds like one potential KSG caveat for some is to avoid working the action like a girly man. I did not have any short-shucking/stroking problems with the gun's pump action but it sounds like some others may have.

    The little short bastards are pretty much made for the KSG. I am well aware of the fact that Kel-Tec is a controversial "love/hate" brand but I am a fan and dare say you should maybe consider getting a KSG. You have probably already seen this but Nutnfancy's review is a good resource: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfsJPEUdERM

    Mossberg Nightstick. Oh, shiit...

    Yes sir, I am happy to provide a range report. I fired 20 rounds/one box of Aguila Minishell buckshot with my Kel-Tec KSG w/out any type of feed or other malfunction at all. This was followed by 25 rounds of Federal Multi-Purpose Field & Target 2 3/4" 7 1/2 shot which also produced no feed or other type of malfunction. I had alot more of the Federal birdshot on hand but running it with this lightweight shotgun was rough on my shoulder (and converted me to Aguila minishells as far as my KSG is concerned). As I guessed you already know about this ammo and have the OPSol adapter for your gangsta Mossberg 98ZbV.

    Mossberg Nightstick. Oh, shiit...

    Hi Robocop1051. With all respect I'm a little surprised by your response as it's readily available in quantity pretty much everywhere here in Indiana for $17-$20 a box (i.e. buckshot, slugs and birdshot). Seems like this Mexican ammo would/should be easier to get in CA than here in the Midwest.
  14. EugeneStoner

    Mossberg Nightstick. Oh, shiit...

    πŸ‘ Nice shooting iron. It's cool that Mossberg is branching out into gangsta shotguns. I'm sure you know about Aguila minishells 98Z5V but if not they might be a good complement to that gun that is worth checking out. I ran some of their buckshot in my KSG over the summer and the two were like peanut butter and jelly. https://www.aguilaammo.com/shotshell/

    What do you have on order or in the mail? Part 2

    πŸ‘ My favorite gun shop stocks those Heritage revolvers and I'm thinking about getting one as it would be perfect for running Aguila's primer-only Super Calibri .22lr ammo (https://www.aguilaammo.com/rimfire/). This subsonic ammo does not necessarily cycle in a semi-auto very well so a SA revolver like this would be just the ticket for the range, introducing my niece to basic firearm/handgun skills and closer range squirrel hunting. I would definitely get a leather OWB holster and cowboy hat to go with that fine shooting iron.
