even semi auto with p-grip is a no go. There is the smooth bore vs rifled argument but I don't think a judge will side with us on this gun.

Kali frowns upon detachable magazine fed semi-auto shotguns. That thing would be great for marauding bands of stuffed animals!

Let's not forget that this shotgun was reclassified as a destructive device and all legal owners were required to register their new NFA weapon with BATFE and are now restricted to transfering it as such. This gun was also quite ammo sensitive and would only run relaiably with Winchester High base 2 3/4" loads. Something to do with crimp tolerance of other manufacturers. I had money down to buy a semi auto but things never quite worked out.

Assuming you could find a 49-state legal shotgun similar to these, you could always Cali-AK it. PIN the mag!! :D
If anything, the shotgun is easier to port-load than many semis. I personally don't see much use for a mag-fed one, since a Benelli holds 7-8 rounds in the tube in a smaller package. Now in full auto, mags would come in handy..

Incorrect.

You are thinking of the USAS-12 shotgun, not the AA-12.

The AA-12 is a machine gun and is not available to civilians. There is talk of a semi-auto version for civvies and would be perfectly legal unless the AG decides that the semi-auto AA-12 specifically is non-sporting and hence a Destructive Device. I highly doubt this would happen again under current leadership.

Yes, you are right. I was under the impression (from watching the development of that shotgun) that the AA-12 was the prototype weapon. It looked like someone gathered a bunch of different existing model gun parts and integrated them. The inventor could not get a US manufacturer to bite on the project so he went to a Korean company. This imported gun was now subject to control. I had money down with the inventor of the AA-12 for a semiauto weapon. I got screwed. The AA-12 was available (theoretically) as a semi in order to generate civilian sales. I know because I held one. That's how the guy pried the wallet open.
