Anyone have experience with the Rock Island VR60?

#1 Post by Bang » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:53 pm

I've wanted an AR type shotgun for shits and giggles for a while now, the local redneck store is having a sale on these this weekend and I'm thinking about getting one. I went in today to handle one, it's super light and very comfortable, the grip in particular is excellent. The mags were sturdy. It's a polymer lower, but the lower, grip and stock are all one piece so I don't think there will be issues with durability there. All in all it seemed nice.

One thought I have is that with how light the thing was, it wasn't barrel heavy, which has me thinking the barrel its self might not be very substantial. I know a shotgun shouldn't need to contain the same pressure as a typical barrel, but if I go back to take a second look, what should I be looking for to make sure the barrel will stand up to use?

Just kidding. This is a much better review. Never saw the animal but it looks like a nice semi-auto shotgun design, well executed, and lifetime warranty (?). -Made in Turkey!

Decided to grab one. No buyer's remorse yet. Sadly, I won't get a chance to shoot it as I'm about to go on vacation.

Well that’s being a tease... So we’re just supposed to sit on our hands and wait to see pics or your review AFTER you get back from your vacation, huh?

I don’t think I’ve ever been treated as poorly by any of the girls I dated in High School...

I've spent the last two months trying to find 9 round magazines for these, as well as a range where I can shoot them in the winter. None of my local indoor ranges are fond of shotguns, and none of the outdoor ones are open when there is snow on the ground.

But as soon as I found and bought some 9 round magazines, I find out about these behemoths:
