I have seen pictures of tactical shotguns with a drum mag and/or 8 or 10 round standard mags. Where can I get one of these systems for a Rem. 870? Any info on these items would be greatly helpful!!!!!!!

im pretty sure what you are talking about is the Knoxx SideWinder. im not 100% positive, but i think it may only be for the Mossberg 500/590 platform. i know theres was talks of one for an 870, dont know if it ever came out though.

While it was in production, it was only made for the mossy's. Knoxx claimed that they would be releasing one for the 870, and were showing around some prototypes at various shows, and then they canned the whole program. Apparently Knoxx was having problems with one of their suppliers that it difficult to get the kits to sell. There aren't any plans on rereleasing the kit either.

If you have a mossy, you can still get the kit if you really want it:

of course it costs more than the actual gun.

I can't seem to find a picture of the 870 prototype, but I remember a shorty 870 with a sidewinder kit and a copstock.

SAIGA!
How'd we know that was coming? :roll: :lol:

If I was looking to have a mag hang off my SG I would rather have a semi, saiga, than have to pump around that big drum.

Would a knox drum fit a 930?
I could see the dilemma if you want a box fed pump gun for the purposes where a pump excels, like lower power rounds, but I really can't see any reason to be adding a box mag to a conventional semiauto, when you could start out with a saiga to begin with, and have what you want.

That's kinda what I was trying to say. I don't not like big box mags, but I would prefer them on a gun designed for them. I had a chance to buy a Saiga for very little money in '99ish but the dealer wasn't sure of the legality for non class 3's.
