I love the 870s just as much as I love the Mossberg'*. Never had one handed down to me though, or I would just use them Ha.

The Mossberg Revelation is not a pistol grip shotgun. And looking back at your pic it isn't a custom grip but just a hacked OEM one. Either way in Michigan custom or hack, it is now considered a pistol in MI and you now are in possession of an unregistered one.

These, are custom pistol grips Steve. I have never seen a wooden smooth grip in my life.






IMO Yours is a hacked off and sanded OEM stock. Whcih BTW looked like this to begin with.




Either way in MI, fabbing a pistol grip to a shotgun makes it legally a pistol. And it'* serial number will be scrutinized if you register it. Know it'* history?

Good! Those and the Rem 870s are the best "bang" for your buck shotguns.

I'm sorry that you live in a state that considers pistol-grip scatters as pistols and therefore forces registration.

i dont know what it is lately with shotguns.. ive always liked guns (in a countryboy/redneck kinda way, not a thug/gangster way) i want a few rifles and maybe a nice hangun or two too but i dont wanna go threw the hastle of registering em, so ill get my fill of shotguns first, then start getting into rifles and handguns

I have a shotgun and a rifle. Neither are registered. Thank God for the free states of the South!

I plan on buying everything from private sellers from now on though, so much easier.
