Do a search for "TPS" here.

i'd advise getting a recoil pad so that the stock won't bite into your shoulder. also, the stock is too far elevated to get a comfortable position using the sights.

but, i still love it. :D

I've got one. I like it.

Fair warning: it's tough to find a flashlight mount. The magazine tube is 30mm.

Surly,

Do you have the SLP or the TPS? I pick up my TPS on Thursday and I've been looking for a flashlight mount with no success. Can you point me in the right direction?

I've found the pistol-grip mounts, but that isn't something that appeals to me.

Try looking a car sites for a billet hose couplers. They tend to come in many sizes and are cheaper than gun specific ones.

Jeff, I have the SLP. I bought a double ring mount from Laser Devices. It's not listed on their website. I found it in an old catalog that Google had cached.

The mount you want has two rings, one 30mm and one 25/26mm. It was originally designed to run a laser in the 30mm hole and clamp to a 25 or 26mm magazine tube.

In any case, it's very robust and well made, but not cheap. I think it was $50.

OTOH, it was the only solution I found that didn't require mounting rails to the gun.

Here is an older photo. I've since abandonned the but cuff.

I have the SLP as well and give it the nod, a solid shotgun to say the least. An added benefit for us left handed shooters is that the safety converts over w/o having to buy any parts or have any real gunsmithing done. I swapped mine over the day I got it, says it can be done right in the manual :-)

Regards,

James R.

Yes. Yes they are. I'm worried I may be training outside for the BlackHelicopterZombie Attack and get locked out without my keys. If that happens, I don't want to wait for a rogue Narcotics team to serve a no knock warrant and blow my door in. I need to do it myself!


;-)

They're cheap Saf-T ammo from Brownells.

Great setup Surly, what kind of butt cuff is that? Where did you get it? Thanks

oh you lucky bastard. where did you find that folding stock for the valtro?

I personally prefer my benelli M1s to the FNs. we have both here; my buddy has SLPs and I have M1S90s.
