    Yep, big old 10 rounder sticking out the bottom and a red dot on top. The boys with the pirazzi's, Brownings, etc, were "concerned". LOL.
    I knew most of them, but they still didn't expect the Akudal. It's not an official trap shoot, just a range west of town that meets once a week. The guys that run it though are pretty darned good. Hang their heads in shame if they miss two out of a hundred.
    Personally, I'm way, way below that level.

    Thank you. There's very few firearms that get me this excited about owning but this is definitely one of them. You know how you research things whatever that might be and then when you actually get one it's not quite what it's cracked up to be. This Benelli has not only met but exceeded my expectations.

    So I ordered the 7 round magazine tube from carrier comp it's titanium and cerakoted the original color of my shotgun. It comes with a compliant follower (so that makes 2 parts) and it comes with a good wolf spring then I ordered the black forend from Freedom Fighter which looks exactly the same but is made better/stronger than the original Benelli and counts towards compliance. That makes 3 parts to be 922r compliant. I may go ahead and order the trigger group from Freedom Fighter to get the pull weight down from 8.50 to 6.50 but they're are backordered til Jan or Feb of 2019 and didn't want to wait that long to be legal plus I'm reading mixed reviews that they are not as good as the original Benelli trigger groups. Now the wait begins for my parts to come in.
    Edit : 7 round magazine tube instead of tube extension.

    The tube extension doesn't count. The law says the part has to be replaced . I caught this on another post somewhere. I think 922r is a joke anyway. Does anyone does this law apply to all imported weapons after a certain date ?

    If I understand the video correctly on freedom fighter the tube extension counts as one part because it's made in the USA. I will look again. Thanks
    I'm sorry I worded that wrong I should have said 7 round tube NOT tube extension . My bad. You are absolutely correct

    ^^^ the above was stated from the ATF to Freedom Fighter July 19th 2010 ^^ If anyone knows of anything that voids this please chime in.

    Tromix used to be the “go to” place for AK shotguns. Didn’t they quit making and working on those?

    I don't know GB. That's what I'm trying to figure out is if it's really necessary. I don't know if it's true or not that I need to swap out three parts to be legal just to get the longer tube or if it's a marketing ploy. God forbid I have to use it for home defensive purposes but I don't want to give some prosecutor any extra reason to file charges because I didn't change three parts. The parts I've chosen really doesn't change the realiabilty of this shotgun but gives me two extra rounds for my piece of mind. Again if anyone can show me where Freedom Fighter's statement on their website is out of date or not true I would like to see it because I can't seem to find anything to the contrary. Thanks
