Turn a Sporting Shotgun into a Home Defense Platform
It’s no secret that shotguns have been flying off the rack, purchased by new and experienced shooters alike.
Many of these buyers will be interested to learn how easy it is to turn a sporting-oriented shotgun into a home defense platform. Choate Machine and Tool has easy-to-install accessories and components to make this happen.
More (Capacity) Is Better
Unless you’re drowning or on fire, no one wants less ammunition capacity. Choate is the industry leader in magazine tube extensions. Extensions are available for Benelli, Browning, CZ, Fabarm, Franchi, H&R 1871, Mossberg, Remington, Smith & Wesson, Steven, Stoeger, Weatherby and Winchester!
Light It Up
Choate Machine and Tool manufactures a variety of light and accessory mounting options for shotguns, including the Night Manager. The Night Manager is a magazine tube extension with an aluminum shroud that is drilled and tapped along the bottom and sides for mounting Picatinny rail sections. Its unique design allows the shroud to orient the attached Picatinny rails where needed and then uses an AR-15 castle nut to lock it in the desired location. Mounting accessories on the magazine tube extension allows use of the full length of the shotgun’s forend, which often can be short on law enforcement models. Currently the Night Manager is available for the Remington 870, 1100, 11-87 and also for the H&R Pardner pumps and Hawk 982. For Mossberg shotguns the Night Manager is available for the 500 (no extra shell capacity) 590, 835, 5500 and the 9200 shotguns.
Whether you want to upgrade from wood to the durability of polymer, or are looking for a different configuration entirely, Choate Machine and Tool has stocks to meet every need including folding stocks, less-lethal designated orange stocks, stocks that carry extra ammunition and others. Adding a folding or telescoping stock can be a fantastic upgrade for any home defense shotgun, making it easier to store or easier to adjust for clothing, body armor or the stature of the shooter.
