    Own this shotgun and looking to change stks. How does the old stk come off. Tons of aftermarket ones are sold so I fig it cant be that hard to change but all I see are pressed pins. They dont pop out easily. As allways thanks for any help.

    IIRC, you take off the recoil pad and there's a bolt in there that holds the stock to the reciever. Unscrew the bolt with a socket and the stock comes off.


    I had a gunsmith smooth up the trigger pull on my 1300 and get rid of the long take up and overtravel. It's much better now! I am thinking of reducing the LOP on mine.


    What kinda stock are you looking at installing?

    I put an ATI stock on mine, love it. I can't remember if it was a bolt (think so) or allen wrench. Changed the stock on my Mossy too.

    I'm thinking of cutting the stock to 12 or 13" LOP.

    Recoil on my 1300, with #9, kicks hard. My wife shot it twice, maybe three times, and made me buy her a Benelli.


    We did three rounds of clay with the GM family, and the wife never even wimpered

    Did you like the ATI? I found an ATI folder for a Mossy while cleaning up recently, now I need a Mossy 'truck gun' to put it on.

    Nice thing about the 1300 Defender is they generally{ everyone I have seen } will digest the Aguila 1.5 inch buckshot. Lots of rounds for HD and the recoil is very managable for those of you who are recoil sensitive.

    I do not like their solid/fixed stocks. The adjustables rock.

    it was supposedly designed and tested with a fn tps. same thing as winchester 1300. They still hang up on occasion, not a good thing to have happen in a Home Defense situation.
