Congratulations ❗Goad said:I opened a new gunbroker account called Goadsguns, stay tuned. I will be entertaining proposals. I officially retired, and am applying for an FFL.
In general Europeans actually use the comma and decimal backwards of Americans. ie. 1.000,00Rudolph31 said:I've noticed the use of commas for decimals when in Europe. I don't understand why they do it, but I've gotten used to it. But it seems FN does it both ways, 63.5 in the Y gun, and 63,5 in Goad's.
Thank you! That would possibly help explain why it doesn't appear that the barrel sticks out far enough to be a conversion, although the distance from the ejection port to the front of the receiver indicates it is and the ejector has the slot cut out. I'm wondering if the kit was added after it was converted? Not allowing the barrel to stick out more for the 2 3/4"? If so, what, if anything, would need to be done to safely shoot 2 3/4"?Rudolph31 said:I think FN sold 3-Shot kits consisting of a new magazine, spring, and forearm to convert standard shotguns. These may have been before the factory model was introduced. I'd check S/V but I'd have to get off the couch…
Correct. I understand that. Now I'm asking if the different handguard will affect it shooting 2 3/4" as I know they modified the handguard during the conversion process. I'm wondering if the 3 shot adapter kit was added to the gun after it was converted to 2 3/4" and if so, would that affect shooting 2 3/4" out of it, as the 3 shot handguard wasn't modified at all.Rudolph31 said:Nothing I said had anything to do with a conversion from 65mm to 70mm. I was talking about a conversion from a 4 shot magazine to 2.
That's why it doesn't make sense to me! Unless modifying the 3 shot forearm to shoot 2 3/4" is different. Yeah. Just 32xxx with FN in circle above and D in circle below. I'll try and get a couple pictures up when I get home.Rudolph31 said:Gotcha.
It wouldn't make sense to convert it to shoot 70mm shells without modifying the forearm.
And if it was first converted to 70mm, it wouldn't make sense to then change it to a 3-shot using a forearm meant for 65mm shells.
But, are you sure there's no letter prefix to your serial number?
