I would like to get some ideas from you guys about an old family hand me down. When my Dad died one of the weapons he left me in his will is an old coach gun he hunted doves with when I was a kid (I'm far from being a kid these days). It is an old Stevens Model 311, side by side 20 gauge, chambered for 2 ¾, with a 28 inch barrel, probably full and modified chokes.
It still shoots well but cosmetically is in poor shape. It is ugly and needs work. It is not worth much and I would never sell it because it was my Dads. Here is the thing, it is in my closet calling my name. I'm having this strange urge to cut it down and modify it into some strange side by side 20 Ga. with a flashlight mounted on it, 00 buck shot, and any other tactical mods I see fit. Just to help me stop someone coming down my hallway in the middle of the night.
The problem is I would not know where to start because I do realize what I'm asking here. This is not a 870 worthy of being sent to Wilson Combat and returning a fully functional tactical killer. This old Savage Arms 20 will be a cross between something from Ghost Busters and the Beverly Hill Billys.
I don't hunt birds anymore so does anyone have any suggestions for cool mods I could employ to give this old gun a second purpose in life.
