I feel dumb for asking this but is this a pump-action or semi-auto shotgun?
Isn't it obvious? A pump. Excalibur01 02:22, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Obvious, not really. That's a long ass forend, seen mostly on semi-auto shotguns. But it seems to be the norm on the newer pump shotguns lately.--Predator20 02:30, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Not the norm for most shotguns. Just for this shotgun. Excalibur01 02:56, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
- The long forend is what confused me. It doesn't look like it has enough room to move to rack the action.

Just looking at the picture the forend does look like it should be on a semi-auto instead of a pump...but the lack of a cocking lever is the dead give away that it would have to be pump.--Spades of Columbia 15:01, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
"Not the norm for most shotguns. Just for this shotgun." The Winchester Super X Pump (SXP) and the Remington 887, are two other new pumps with long forends. It seems to me that you would have to do a lot of notching on the forend to get a side saddle to work. --Predator20 15:16, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
For a pump action shotgun, I just prefer the tried and true 870 Excalibur01 18:04, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
HELL YEAH!...the 870 is a work horse...no need for cleaning or lubing.--Spades of Columbia 18:56, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
I own both brands (plus mossbergs), and no complaints with neither.
- Does anyone know how the FABARM Martial Ultrashort compares to the Mossberg 590 Compact Cruiser? I'm writing a story where the character uses a short shotgun and I'm not sure which to use. 2wingo
So, what should be with all this huge Fabarm family? Leave the division as it is, or dump everything on the SDASS page? Valtro/Atis actually differs minimally. --Slon95 (talk) 09:38, 31 August 2020 (EDT)
