Default Rock Island Armory M5

These just went clearance price at big 5 which means I can pick it up for $176 with my employee discount plus tax and fees. (I knew keeping big 5 as a part time job was worth it) I'm thinking of getting one for my grandma's house since I live there 5 or 6 days a week for my full time job. I have a 870 police magnum at my parents house but this is a good price especially if it gets stolen I won't take that big a hit. Do you Cal gunners like yours? The only thing that bugs me a little is that the barrel is fixed to the receiver.

I bought one recently. I've had it out shooting a couple times. Solid gun, esp. for the money. I put a 8rd. mossburg 500 tube (same thread) on mine just to increase the capacity by a couple rounds.

That looks really nice. I bought one of those last year. Sold it and bought a Maverick 88. After seeing yours with that 8 shot tube I think I may buy another and keep it this time.

I have installed the KAK tube on my friends M5, works and looks great.

I originally looked at the KAK tube kit, but at $75 plus shipping for a $200 shotgun didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Plus it's black(blued). My RI M5 shotgun had a brushed nickel finish. A Nickeled Mossberg 500 tube is $37 plus shipping.
