  • Smith and Wesson

    Just wondering what everyone thinks about Smith and Wesson getting into the shotgun market.

    It will be interesting to see what they come up with, and at what price point. They were actually into shotguns briefly back in the 70's, turning out a pump that hit the same price point and general quality of the Win Mod 1200 as I recall. Nothing outstanding, but they sold for a couple or three years. Reaching back pretty far, so the details are fuzzy.

      Back during my Navy days, (70s and early 80s) I had a Smith and Wesson model 916 shotgun. In the riot gun configuation. Nothing fantastic. The firing pin broke soon after buying it. I made another much more robust pin by turning down a big punch pin.
      The Remington 870 is twice the shotgun. Well at least 1.5....

        They also had a Model 1000 Semi-Auto back in the 70's and 80's. Alloy frame was junk.

          The pictures look suspiciously like a Huglu/CZ. Not that the Huglu is a bad gun, but I hate it when companies import a gun, slap their logo on it and call it their own. I hope I'm wrong....

            nope the Huglu imported by S&W is the word I heard....
