Just called the Importer for Aguila mini-shells...they quoted me their prices but told me I could save a lot of $$ by going through their dealer: Ammunitiontogo.com in Tx...I called by phone and talked to a delightful lass named Carie...she helped me get set up....saved me a bunch of $$ and took my order the old-fashioned way...person-to-person...even on Monday she was fun and efficient...y'all oughta go there!!! Betcha you won't mind partin' with the money...now don'tcha bad-mouth me none....I'm gettin' the nice old fat guy prices and don't wanta rock the boat.......

Got my shells...they won't feed...they fed flawlessly in my old Winch 1200 riot gun...but not at all in my 1300----emailed Mfgr. for help....looking for a 1200....tube held 4 buck and 7 slugs....+1 in barrel....has something to do with the lifter....Mods can be done to the 870 and Mossberg but I loooooooooove a Winch pump's smooth slide...we'll see....

They're s'posed to without mods in the Winch 1200....they do....and the 1300---they don't....yet.....I love the idea of them...the higher capacity...the light weight with still a stopping load....I'll find a 1200....meanwhile...the Rem 2 3/4" are back in my slide trombone till we get some answers....and I don't feel undergunned with 8 of those up the tubes....just want to play with some new toys....

Well, I'm real unhappy...not with the shells...but with the dealer and importer....emailed the importer and got no answer...emailed the dealer and got an answer right away...John said they'll work in the 1300 but it takes a kit....so I searched for a kit...nothing...called John and he backpedalled...said he had no idea where to get a kit (saw them at a gunshow) and HIS ad didn't say they fed in the 1300----no, HIS ad said they fed in "most pump shotguns"...but he couldn't give me the name of any "most"...then started telling me about all his millions of rounds of ammo and he couldn't make sure of this or that.....offered to take the shells back but the problem is not with the shells...it's with the marketing claims....I called Mike at Centurion, the importer....he told me his website's down(I was looking at it at the time) and that when I google it'll tell me it's down....I told him I yahooed and it came up just fine...and his ad said it fed in the 1300 "flawlessly" and in the Remington and Mossberg with some modification.....he allowed as though they'd had some trouble with that claim...the 1300 was different from the 1200 and also had no knowledge of kits or alterations....now I'm fried....
I know the $100+ order isn't worth the trouble to them, and they probably shine like the sun with everything else that they sell...but I just don't like buying a pig that can fly and sing opera and then find out it ain't so....I'd rather not be promised anything...and now I'm looking for an old 1200 pump....I have it on the highest authority that they will feed right in that....seen it with my own beady little eyes...been there...done that....the last one I found was a retired riot gun from the D'ville PD...maybe I can sniff out another one....
