    Short of an oldschool sawed off type birdshead (which i don't think will work due to the length of the stock nut anyways) has anyone had any ideas or attempts at making one of these into a pistol grip version?

    I have been toying around with the idea, and have picked up a couple different rear grip versions. with some dremel work i could get them to fit snug, but the long *** nut that the stock screw mounts into is giving me trouble. and the thread for said nut/mounting bracket on the frame side is like 8mm fine thread.....

    Just something i was toying with - i have a beater norinco and thought it might be fun to have a pistol pump with no disconnecter :p maybe i should just sell it off and buy a mossberg.....

    Have you had any problems with yours? I'm thinking about buying one in the next couple of days.

    Coyote Cap has some good info on Chinese 97s.

    I no longer own one, but in the time i did I never had any issues. They seem pretty solid for a chinese copy shotgun, unlike some of the other clones i have owned.
