    I've seen them on Army M-4 Carbines as a breeching tool.

    Looked a bit different however.

    I'm guessing it would make the AR/M4 tough to handle and aim. Kinda cool though.

    Cool, but the NFA tax makes it a little expensive I'd think...

    Don't like the idea, to much weight..would rather strap the shotty or AR over my shoulder.

    The ergonomics of it are wrong. You'd have to be holding the bottom of your mag in order to get your finger on the trigger. Awkward!

    And because this technically uses the M4 as a "stock" you have to register the shotgun as an SBS not an AOW ;)

    I must say... it's nice to see the evil bayonet lug being used for something!

    its gonna be one heavy rifle to carry also.

    If you remember the movie "predator" the indian named Billy carries an M16 with an 870 under it...theres a nice close up of it right before he gets killed

    To register an AOW is still $200, to transfer an already registered AOW is $5.

    Its called the "MasterKey", made by KAC. Spendy. Or you can get a remington MCS 870 (its a remington 870 kit with different stocks/barrels/foregrips), its pretty spendy. Then the mount is like $600 or so.

    it actually a mossberg.

    I think for practical legal reasons, the 20 inch AR with a legal length shottie like the one in Predator is probably the way to go. No worries about NFA registration. Shortly after predator came out a company sold mounts to put the shotgun under the rifle barrel, but they were pretty substantial, so oversize it looked out of place. It cost about $100 back then. I have seen them attached with regular shotgun barrel clamps, but I do not think they would hold under recoil.

    The current ones I have seen like the Knight's is nice but very expensive. Myself, I would probably just go with an M4 and keep a seperate shotgun slung in back.
