Remington 1740 and KS-23: "Get off my porch."

So the thing with shotguns we think of today is that they are one of a few things, things that make them cool. Pump-action for awesome pump stunts and ammunition compatibility like the Remington 870 or Mossberg M590, automatic shotguns like the Benelli M3 and M1014 models or HK CAWS, then you have fully-automatic shotguns like the AA-12 or South Korean USAS-12. You have double barrels because, two shots at once? Dead. Or the varied other kinds out there! Here I give you a little known design from here in the USA: the Remington 1740. A double-barreled pump-action. They existed, and you have the Soviet KS-23 "Special Carbine" which is a 23mm (approximately 6-gauge) shotgun used almost like a mortar or grenade launcher. The Remington? Just use your imagination.
So we have some awesome weapons here, so as with my knives post I'll do what I can to

We have the Remington 1740, a custom kit to make twin 870s. This one is fairly simple.
