So, I was in the market for a generic defensive pump shotgun, and I found a used Winchester Defender at a local shop in good shape. The wood stock was fine and all, but me being me, I thought mounting one of my Wolverine stocks with a Limbsaver and a folding mechanism would be cool. I soon discovered that nobody made a receiver block for the 1300 anymore, sooooo....
I got a little creative with some chrome-moly steel and my TIG welder, and this was the result:
Prototype stock adapter mounted with modified AK SAW pistol grip, CSS push button mechanism, and a Shorty Wolverine stock with the Limbsaver pad. Here's a folded pic:
I took it to the range a few weeks ago and shot the hell out of it. I put as many rounds of heavy buck and slugs through it as my shoulder could take, plus a bunch of trap loads. The adapter held up extremely well (far better than I did), so I decided to make a welding jig and make a few more up for sale.
I ended up making 3 more of them. Even with the hard jig for welding, they ended up being a lot more time consuming to make than I had anticipated. I will most likely not be making any more of them, unless these sell well and people demand more, while waving a bunch of cash in my face. But probably not, and certainly not for this price. Here's a closer view of the prototype installed on my shotgun:
Note that I have the stock installed fairly low. That's because I'm just using the plain sighting bead at the end of the barrel. If I were running an optic or rifle sights, I would have it mounted higher. There are two sets of mounting holes in the back of the adapter; one set is centered, and the other is lower. Using a folding mechanism with the slotted mounting holes, that gives a very wide range of adjustment for getting the comb height where you need it.
Construction is 4130N steel, with all edges and corners nicely rounded. A couple corners on my prototype you can see I didn't bother because they weren't bothering me, but the ones I am offering for sale got a full "melt" treatment. They use a regular AK grip nut, and a slightly modified AK grip. You can probably make just about any AK grip work, but the SAW style is what I am including.
The grip mod consists of rounding the upper left front corner off to ease access to the slide release. You have to shift your grip slightly in order to hit it, but it doesn't pose a huge problem. The 1300's slide release is tiny and sucks even with the factory stock installed, but if you have one, you probably know that. My wife has much smaller hands than I do, and she could still operate the safety and the slide release.
Adapters are finished in flat black industrial powder coat, and include the pistol grip, plus all necessary hardware for installation. Shotgun, stock and folding mechanism not included. This is what you get:
Price is $80 (reduced) per set, shipped in the US. US Postal money order only, please. Thanks for looking.
