    I'm sorry but I agree. WHY? Some say it is faster to change mags .
    Is it faster to go empty and change mags than to top up your tube mag from a saddle as you go?
    I dont particpate in 3 gun but cant you get tubes that are 10 rounds,
    I guess I just dont get it



    I guess if you had a really short shot gun the mag would be an advantage

    I agree, though I do see the use for home defense. Of course if you fumbling around in the dark with mags, might as well be fumbling around with shells. I don't really have a gun for home defense myself. The handgun sits on the shelf of my safe with a couple loaded mags, I guess I would grab that after I try to find the key to unlock the safe.
    Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance and my kindness for weakness...

    Remington is a bit to late this should have happened few years ago. I don't really like how they attached magwell, but I will choose it over most other ones that inflated market lately.

    I would rather ride a Vespa than own one of these magazine fed shotguns.
    And I am particularly fond of Remington 870 Wingmasters.
    But, to each there own I suppose eh?

    The definition of "now" is a 12.5 Griz racked open in the camper with a mag there when the real Griz knocks on your trailer. That is the advantage of a mag fed shottie! Clack, rack, ready in 2 sec.

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    Hit the nail on the head with this one. What’s the point of this exactly? All the shotguns you have pictured would hold more with full length tubes than the boxes, and as long as the tubes don’t go past the muzzle you keep the profile of the shotgun. With this box magazine you change the guns profile to something very awkward AND with less capacity. Guys looking to use this for hunting or bear medicine/bush wouldn’t you rather a shotgun with a full length tube because it’s shaped better and has less things protruding? Action shooting guys might like this but you lose the ability to move and top off at the same time, with this you’d have to change mags which might be a plus but I’ve always like the ability to top off the tube on the move. The mag release on it looks awkward to use as well, you can tell this is a pump converted to take mags as opposed to a shotgun being built from the ground up to be box fed. And as far as having the slide back on a mag fed shotgun there’s nothing stopping you from doing that with a tube gun.

    Can you beat wolverines price of 599.99 plus shipping and tax on the REM-81351 ?
    Nope. We don't sell direct, we supply the dealers.
