    My friend is a Fisheries Biologist in Bella Coola a valley with over 300 Grizzly bears at last count!! He is also the gun guy for the department and has been working on a 12 &14” 870 for bear defense carry for all of the biologists. I watched him last week blast away at a target with 3” magnum slugs 25 yards away with the 14” model with a traditional wood stock. All his hits were in the A zone, I was mightily impressed, as I was getting a bruise from firing my 20” 590 and getting less accuracy. He tried all sorts of folding stocks and pistol grips. They are fine for reduced loads, but not for the heavy loads and he came back to the traditional design. Another couple of problems with the shorties he has found with teaching their use to other people is that some people catch their fingers between the forestock and receiver when cycling and another problem is that some people are letting their hand move to far forward and he is worried somebody might blow off their fingers with them ahead of the muzzle.

    I would stick to 14” as the minimum barrel length myself, and plan on getting my 590 cut down to 18.5”.

    I love the looks of a 14" 870. I would love to get one. Since the stamp is only $5 I might look into is one day. But I'll need to get a good 870P to turn into a 14incher. I don't like the Expresses all that much.

    remember if the gun Left the factory with a full stock and you cut it $200 stamp(SBS)....If it began life at THE FACTORY as a Pistol grip, Then the stamp is $5(AOW)....No problem getting a good 870 with full stock and cutting her down once paperwork and $200 SBS (Not AOW) are completed. Holler if any questions.

    So if it originally had a pistol grip, you can go to a 14inch barrel for $5 stamp? Or did I read that wrong?

    Anybody know if the Shorty will cycle reduced recoil rounds? If so, that would increase the magazine capacity.

    Yes they do cycle reduced recoil rounds I use the reduced Buck and Slug BUT neither effect capacity as they are still full length hulls. You referr to the Aquilla Mini Slug me thinks :-) Which will also cycle effectively and increase capacity by a round or 2 BUT not hit with nearly the authority IMHO.
