Neat build. You say it's a 20ga?

Did you have that cantilever rail custom-mounted on that barrel?

Really nice 20ga you've got there! :D I swear it looks like a 12ga. It's good to know they do sell tactical upgrades for the 20!

Yes, for now. Working on finding / having made 20ga. Imp.Cyl. smooth bore barrel with cantilever / matte finish. Sort of like their 12ga. Turkey Gun barrels. Will then move Dot & Laser to that Bbl. and fit the rifled barrel with a suitable big, bright 1x~4x 'scope for those accurate sabot slugs.
Ain't this FUN?!

Yes, it's a AIMSHOT Laser With Grip Pressure Switch. Sight, Laser & even Scout Light are co-witnessed via boresighting laser.

Thanks. Yes, finding parts for 20ga. is a lot easier now than in 2009-2010. But that was part of the challenge! :)

I'm not aware of any factory smoothbore barrels with cantilever rails. However, you can order the cantilever base itself from Remington. You may be able to braze or weld one of those onto a plain 20ga barrel.

If you do that, I'd love to hear details. I'd like to do something similar for a future slug build. There are also people here who are looking for options for 20ga builds, so tips & details on how you've converted things for your gun would be helpful.
