Took the Serbu to the range today just to get a feel for it and see how it patterns.

I put a few magazines worth of 9mm into this target from my G26.
Then I took 4 shots at it from the Serbu using the Federal Law Enforcement Low Recoil 00 buck. It is hard to tell from the picture but at 7yards (21 feet) it makes 1 big hole after another.



Before I left I wanted to see at what distance the shot starts to spread, so I rolled a fresh target out to 10yards (30 feet). I reeled in the target to try and get a better picture. As you can see 6 of the shots are on target. Three would not have made the head shot. There is also a rip from the wad that is to the left of the head. It appears that a center of mass shot properly aimed would have kept all of the pellets on target.




I was surprised what the extra 3 feet do to the spread. It makes the difference from 1 entry point to nine. Still I am super happy with the performance of this little 12 gauge with the seven inch barrel.

Disclaimer - I realize that the sample size is a little small to call this test definitive, but at least I now have some idea regarding how this little monster
handles.

I put 23 total rounds through the gun today and enjoyed each one.

If you can, measure the barrel across the muzzle, id be interested in knowing the inside diameter.
No problem. I'll do it tonight when I get home.

That headshot would have been fatal even as three pellets went astray.
I'm really liking the idea of an SBS for HD.

I wonder, does the Serbu come with any sort of choke or is it just straight wall/open?

technically the serbu is not a SBS ($200 tax stamp)

because it doesnt have a stock its considered a Smooth Bore Pistol which falls under the AOW ($5 tax stamp) classification!

even though it has a Remy 870 receiver

cheaper is better!


all in all it costs just under $700 to do and takes between 6 months to a year to get it all done




not until i get the feeling for it at the range and in the desert will i decide to go for one also


there are a few companies that make them, so there are some options

xxg3xx,
The holster is a riot. The funny thing is that I could legally CCW this thing if I wanted to.

Janq,
It is smooth bore all the way, no choke.

Jeremy,
The inside diameter at the end of the barrel is just under 3/4" - 23/32" exactly

If you want one faster than I got mine you should also look to Safety Harbor.
I found them after I had purchased mine.

Here's a page describing Safety Harbor's KEG-12 (Kompact Entry Gun). Please see http://www.safetyharborfirearms.com/KEG_12/keg_12.html.

After reviewing the Serbu, I've come to the conclusion that these guns may be superior to the original Serbu design. Here's why:

1. Instead of Serbu's knurled foregrip, SHF's foregrip has smooth fins and may be more comfortable to shoot.

2. The SHF foregrip is wider that Serbu's grip. This may (again) make the gun more comfortable to shoot.

3. The folding mechanism AND the foregrip have been modified to keep it slightly farther away from the firearm itself. Thus, if the grip is pumped when folded upward, it is far less likely to ram into the receiver than the Serbu model (which can run into the receiver if pumped when folded). Take a look at the pic on SHF's website (see link above); this little bit of additional space might make a world of difference!

4. Not so much a design thing-- SHF has a different Remington host gun supplier than Serbu. Delivery will take 4-6 WEEKS versus Serbu's 4-6 MONTHS!

5. Two variants are available; a 7.5" barrel version (holding 2+1 shots) and a 10.0" version (holding 3+1 shots). Both are the same price.

The quality of these guns is as good as a Serbu. (In truth, SHF's owner used to work for Serbu before he opened his own business.)

I got in on an order of 7 from Serbu. We paid $599 each. Then figure the tax stamp, finger print cards, passport photos, mailing fees and I paid approx $650. I did not pay an FFL transfer fee.

Sweet gun!

I'm getting one of his BFG-50s in a month or so.

hugh, an AOW is a $5 tax stamp from the BATF uh E and a sign off from your local chief LEO.

I toldja about the group buy, silly!

I'd bring it up to show you but we probably couldn't shoot it at the S&w range.
