Serbu Super Shorty 12 Gauge 3.0" Magnum AOW w/  Rare Factory Upgrade Of Front Sight & Sling Swivel Studs - Brand New  Guns > Shotguns > Class 3 Shotguns > Class 3 Any Other Weapon
Description: BRAND NEW Serbu Super Shorty Entry/Breaching 12 Gauge AOW ( Any Other Weapon -- transfers with a just a one time $5.00 NFA tax ). The Serbu Super Shorty is currently in use with dozens of law enforcement agencies and military units worldwide. Due to its robust design, the Serbu has encountered very few problems in actual military field use under the harshest conditions imaginable. This Serbu comes from my personal collection and has never been displayed, handled or fired since leaving the factory. It is in 100% mint condition both cosmetically and mechanically.

The base gun was a NIB Maverick model 88 12 gauge pump-action shotgun - serial #MV76195G. Maverick Arms is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mossberg. The majority of Serbu 12 gauge AOWs are built on Maverick 88 receivers because the Maverick has the more desirable trigger group mounted steel safety button ( versus the Mossberg 500's receiver mounted plastic safety switch which can break ). All custom made parts for the Serbu Super Shorty's are CNC machined from the strongest alloys and TIG welded for strength and durability.

Due to the presence of both a front sight blade and front and rear sling swivel studs, this is an exceedingly rare version of the Serbu AOW. When Serbu first introduced the Super Shorty in 2000, for a $125 up-charge, they would install the sling swivel studs and front sight blade. However, demand for the Super Shorty quickly took off so Serbu streamlined their manufacturing process, discontinued those options and focused solely on producing the standard model. Serbu states that due to the up-charge fee, very few Super Shorty's went out their door in this particular configuration.

While the value of the front sight blade on this type of weapon is obviously debatable -- it looks great and is well rounded so it doesn't hang up on any thing. However, there's no debating the value of the sling swivel studs. If you ever need to carry this weapon ( try sticking it in your pocket or waistband ), the option of attaching a shoulder sling is truly an invaluable feature ! Including refinishing, it would likely cost $200+ to add just the sling swivels studs to a standard Serbu.

The sling swivel studs are attached rock solid to the upper left side of the pistol grip and the left side of the barrel/magazine tube bracket. The only other way available to even semi-conveniently carry a Serbu was in Serbu's proprietary thigh holster which cost $175.00 and has now been discontinued.

The 12 gauge Super Shorty has a Mil-Spec black manganese phosphate finish w/ black checkered finger-notch synthetic pistol grip, swing-down spring-locked knurled steel fore grip ( which folds-up tightly against the magazine tube when not in use -- the gun can be cycled with the fore-grip in either position ), trigger group mounted cross-bolt style safety, front sight blade, sling swivel studs and has a capacity of three 2.75" or 3.0" shells. It has a 6.5" barrel and is only 16.5" in overall length making it easily one of the most compact tactical shotgun in the world. Serbu does not ship the Shorty's with an owners manual or in a dedicated box.

Be certain to confirm that your state and local laws allow private citizens to own Class 3 ( or NFA ) weapons and that you have a Class 3 dealer in your official state of residence who will handle your transfer paperwork prior to attempting to purchase an NFA firearm.
