    Default What shotguns take down to the shortest overall package?

    Preferably repeaters. For example a model 12 takedown is much shorter than most other pumps because the mag tube is removed. My beretta O/U is pretty short but I donít want it banging around in a backpack.

    My 870sbs is pretty compact.

    It really isn’t when compared to a proper takedown shotgun. I have several 870s

    Thank you but I was looking more for a hunting shotgun I could put in a pack or travel with by dirt bike or snowmobile. Maybe a modern equivalent of the Model 12 takedown.


    That Serbs begs for a shoulder holster.

    What about a Benelli Vinci?

    Shortest reasonable might be the Stoeger Condor, 12ga 20" O/U. Takes down in 3 pieces like other O/Us. So the barrel + Chambers ~23", then the stock and the fore end pieces. https://www.stoegerindustries.com/co...utback-shotgun

    I have one of these and while they don't take down, they do fold in half neatly. Depending on the pack it should fit.

    The H&R NEF is a great option that takes down into a small package, unfortunately it’s a single shot.



    You also could go the Mossberg Shockwave option with the addition of the Brace.
