Well, I got tired of the "practical" look of my Charles Daly Semi-Auto 12ga. Shotgun. I used this gun back when I was in high school, on the 4-H Shotgun Team. Since then, it has been sitting in the closet collecting dust. However, I need a good home defense shotgun, so instead of buying a new gun, I decided to mod my Charles Daly 12ga. I did several google searches on the possibility of a mag extension to fit my shotgun and all said it was not possible. So, I thought bump that and purchased a 10rd mag extension for a Remington 870, anyway (got one for the 870, since my gun uses Trulock Remington chokes). I was quite pleased to discover that I was able to install the mag extension on it with only minor modifications to the gun using my dremel tool. First, there was a small nub that had to ground down inside the shotgun, which restricted the shells from going past. Then, I had to dremel out some material from inside the tube of the shotgun, so the follower could pass through. After all of that (about an hour or so worth of work), I tested it by loading 10rds, which all slid in smoothly, and racked the action over and over, in which all 10 rounds fed and ejected flawlessly.
Anyway, here's pics:
Next to come is a stock with pistol grip and a shell holder for the receiver and stock.
