Why aren't there more semi/pump shotguns?
Was it just not a good idea or too complicated or what?
Also I recently learned that the hook on the stock is not a carry handle, but meant to hook around the users wrist when holding the gun in one hand for stability, I wish more guns had cool shit like that.
Post and discuss cool things you don't really see anymore, or experimental things that were cool but never took off.
Mossberg 930spx owner here. Ive had it for ten months now and I havent had a single issue yet.
I did a lot of reading about it before buying and all you need to do is use high-brass ammo. That could be a deal breaker for a lot of /k/ommandos, but its my home defense gun.
As long as its high brass, you can run shit ammo through it. Ive even done a fair amount of regular waterfowl and stuff that I found on sale and still havent had a problem.
That's bad ass.
OP also mentioned prototypes that didn't take off, I always wonder why pic related isn't a thing.

initial tooling would be very expensive, more so than conventional tooling.
the army also wouldnt be able to use existing stockpiles of powder
lastly, remington and winchester-olin would increase costs on other ammunition the army buys on future contracts due to smaller volumes ordered.
