Cool Pump shotgun barrels to a semi auto.

I posted this in the firearms section too but those needing a cross slide hole driller might be interested.

I do a lot of these shotgun barrels for my dad. The semi auto's need a hole or two drilled inside the barrel ring and of course its on an angle. The pump shotgun barrels will work with the hole(s) added. He was using a guy in Akron but he quit doing them on his mill because the setup was to hard or he broke too many drill bits. Well i set them up on my lathe with my cross slide hole driller and a cheap pawn shop drill and i haven't broke a bit yet. Its prob 10 minutes from start to finish. I use a center drill to spot where the hole goes then switch to a regular drill bit. I have some pics of a barrel with 2 holes but i don't have it on my computer....Bob

For what brand of shotguns does this work? I can't picture this working on Remingtons.

I know this barrel was for a Remington because i shot the gun, i am thinking old model 878. The barrel was for an 870. I also did a few for Winchesters...Bob

Thanks for showing, many times I get more out of seeing how the setup is done than the actual piece being made.

Ah, I've never seen a Model 878. My 1100 sure has a wider collar than the 870-series, though. Interesting!

I think the hole driller is a kool attachment but, I'm curious about why so many semi-auto shotguns are missing their barrels in your area??

The 878 is like a 1959 era gun...Bob
