    My initial plans include a G-2 FCG, Ace folder, SAW PG and a Galil foregrip. That will give me 6 US parts. If I change my mind on any of those, I'll get HB to whip up a piston.

    I am not aware of a rifled barrel for these. Given today's AK smiths know their way around these shotguns, I believe the potential exists for a (US-built!) rifled rebarrel for the slug-only shooter.
    I have been eyeballing the 12 and the 20 guage for a rifled slug barrel conversion for deer hunting. a mosburg rifled barrel or a blank ( they are avaliable ) should not be to much of a issue and there US made. one of thes with a good barrel would be pretty slick in shotgun only areas for deer.
    some of the new saboted slugs are shooting 1-2 inch groups at 100 yards in good shotguns.

    That was exactly my thinking! Here in VA you can only use shottys unless you have a treestand or some other nonsense.

    I must admit, I've not hunted in at least the last 10 years that I can think of, and I'm really wanting to get back into it for more meat in the freezer. So this "conversion" has been on my mind quite a bit lately. CAVEAT - One must remember, however, that many shotgun slugs were designed for use in a smooth bore. My dad's double-barrel coach shotgun that looks as old as dirt will group about 3-4 inches at 100 yards. Therefore, it should go without saying that from a performance perspective, it may not be required for optimum performance with a given load.

    One additional FYI - my recent research into rifled vs. smooth bores strongly suggests that the QA level of most shotgun barrels are low enough that it literally becomes a question of how does slug X perform in YOUR barrel.

    I wonder, can you register rifle/shotgun as an SBR without the current barrel actually being under 16"... because SBRs don't need to comply with 922

    He doesn't want to cut anything.

    He wants to spend $200 and get on the government tax rolls and have a shotgun he has to ask permission to take across state lines, just to save $150 (or less) in 922r parts.
