@RickGozinya can correct me if I am wrong but I think his point in mentioning that was just to emphasize the reliability of that model of shotgun. Many semi-auto shotguns are notoriously unreliable with cheap low power birdshot.
Semiauto hunting shotgun can cycle low power birdshot because the are made for it,but those made military style especially with detachable magazine have problem even with buckshot who aren't magnum size
That was my intention, K. I love my range/woods fun but I start losing interest at $2 a round/shell.
Looks like a percussion weapon with no nipple screwed into the breech to put the percussion cap on. Check with Dixie Gun Works or Track of the Wolf to find nipples and caps. I'd suggest you remove the barrel and clean it with very hot soap and water to get old black powder out and then stiff brush and a lot of gun oil for the rust.
Got mine a few days ago. Fits great, thanks for the recommendation!For CCWbros..

Arcflash Labs Co-Founder David Wirth says that weapons like the company’s Gauss rifle will become more common as these technologies develop and come down in price and weight. “It’s not a matter of if, but when gunpowder will be succeeded,” Wirth told The Firearms Blog. "It’s a one thousand-year-old technology. It works fine. But we think we’ve got something better.

AR10s are weird, IIRC there are several different patterns that do not have fully interchangeable parts, which makes them a hassle to build. And after you build it, you discover that it's a 10 pound gun.Been thinking about building an AR10 lately.
I don't get it. It's a small incremental upgrade from 5.56/5.45. To me, it feels like when the Americans upgraded from the Trapdoor Springfield rifles to the Krag rifles. The PRC did something similar with their 5.8x42mm cartridge. Yeah, it's better, but just barely.AR10s are weird, IIRC there are several different patterns that do not have fully interchangeable parts, which makes them a hassle to build.

LaRue Tactical makes a skeletonized AR10 that they call "lightweight" at almost 8lbs. I guess if I had $3500 burning a hole in my pocket I might get one.
But frankly I'd rather spend half the money get one of these instead:

The nice thing about the 6.5 Grendel cartridge design is, it's optimized for steel case. Which means you can buy Russian steelcase ammo at a price that's competitive with 7.62x51 even in these troubled times.

A few years ago, before the insane runup in ammo prices, you could get 6.5 Grendel steelcase for something like 30 cents/round.
Generally I'm not a fan of nonstandard calibers but I'd consider making an exception for 6.5 Grendel.
6mm projectiles are inherently accurate with good long range performance due to their favorable sectional density. This was recognized at least as early as the 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser in the late 1800s. The 6.5 Grendel has always interested me as a rather neat cartridge. I've never owned or fired one though.
Yes. It gives you a lot of flexibility. If you shoot it out of a 24" barrel you can get performance that's close to 7.62x51. Out of shorter barrels the performance drops off but even out of a 16" barrel you are going to get much better performance than 5.56The 6.5 Grendel has always interested me as a rather neat cartridge.
