14" shotgun with a SB Tactical Brace

Is this allowed? does it become a "firearm"?

Can we do this to a receiver that was bought as a "Shotgun"?

The SB Tactical braces show that they fit the Remington Tac-14.

Is it safe to assume that they will fit a standard 870 as well?

Thanks for any guidance

I wish there was a wooden or less "tactical" brace for 870s

Wouldn't that fall under making a SBS? If the gun was transferred as a shotgun, that would make it a long gun and in-convertible to a pistol.

If you buy the shockwave, this product doesn't alter its definition.

So a long gun cannot be converted to a pistol or a "firearm".

Makes sense. thanks

As mentioned in the shockwave thread...pistol brace on a shockwave or tac14 is good to go as they both get treated as a handgun from purchase through carry and transport in Maryland.

If you buy a pistol grip only version of a shotgun, 590 or 870, or other pistol grip only shotgun, it transfers as "other". Then you can buy the 14 inch front end for your particular shotgun and make the 14 inch "other" , providing you als buy and install the shockwave or other birdshead grip which brings the "other" to an acceptable length.

I don't have an HQL so I will be assembling a Mossberg shockwave once I gather the host gun and 14 inch Mossberg front end. Maybe when and if I get a stimuli check.

I’m merely curious (given you did not specify caliber) why anybody would want to possess or run a shotgun that short. SBS. Pistol. Other. Legal or not.

Yep, you can conceal it easier. Yep, you can “control” it easier...right up until you pull the trigger...

I’m not recoil conscious. I won’t bore folks with my background in that regard. Let it suffice to say, I don’t see the efficacy of a very short shotgun unless it’s 20g or less. Even then, I’m not a fan.

So, the question is imo an academic but not practical one.

Your question. Your thread. Best of luck in your search.

Oh ok, i wasn't sure of the direction of your "why".

Shorter than 18" allows for better transportability and mobility. shotguns are fairly long when compared to other "long guns".

in and out of vehicles?

in and out of rooms and halls?

fit in camping tote?

looks cool?

less barrel for a bad guy to grab?

let's be honest, there is quite a bit of cool points to short barreled, wooden stocked shotguns. its classic americana. a rare foray into "collecting" for me.
