Shotguns / Mesa Tactical Urbino stock question
« Last post by Kaso on Today at 11:52:48 AM »
I am trying to reconnect with all of my non-favored guns, and that includes my Benelli M2.  It is a quality shotgun, and I have no complaints outside of the absurd LOP.

Mesa Tactical makes a stock, the Urbino, that will bring the LOP down to where I want it.  They make two models, one with and one without an adjustable cheek riser:

http://mesatactical.com/products/urbino-pistol-grip-stock-for-ben-m1m2-riser-limbsaver-12-ga-black/

I have no plans to put a rail or RDS on the shotgun, so normally I would just assume that the model without the riser would be correct.  What makes it difficult, is the 'drop' of the Urbino stocks is more severe than the factory OEM stock, so I don't know if maybe I need the riser model just to use the sights...

Does anyone have experience with these stocks?  Any advice?  I emailed Mesa Tactical at the beginning of the week, but they have not yet returned my message.


Thanks.

I think the new Mooney's are probably the closest equivalent in terms of pure single engine prop performance.  Even they might have a hard time matching a late model P-51 but at least they are in the ballpark.  I've been to a number of air shows over the years and nothing yet has raised goosebumps like a flight of late model Supermarine Spitfires passing overhead about 300' off the deck.  Four of them in a staggered line abreast formation and a pair of Hawker Sea Furies bringing up the rear about 1000' back.  Awesome.  Absolutely nothing sounds like those Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

Yes in standard General Aviation Certified planes.  They top out at 242 kts, which equals 278 mph.  Of course the hot rot Mooney's are pressurized also.

If you go piston less, but still with a prop, then you can go with a Lance Air homebuilt  ;)www.lanceair.com  300 knts, and pressurized.   Lance Air and several other "homebuilts" are out there that will get you much, much closer to P-51 performance.  And that is without getting into all the replica P-51 kits.

I had the good fortune to inspect a Spitfire up close. It was a beautiful plane close-up, but that cockpit looked like it was toddler sized. It looked like it might have been a little sardine can feeling for even a slightly larger than normal fellow.

Thanks guys! This is fascinating!  :D I am hoping we can get more input, maybe have Zachary Hill weigh in?

There were a number of the Colt automatic pistols circulating in the Arizona territory between the turn of the twentieth century and the outbreak of WWI.  Arizona was the last of the contiguous 48 states to join the union, in February of 1912 so the old west of story and legend persisted a bit longer there than many other places.

If there's a modern civilian performance equivalent, I'd very much like to know what it is.

I think the new Mooney's are probably the closest equivalent in terms of pure single engine prop performance.  Even they might have a hard time matching a late model P-51 but at least they are in the ballpark.  I've been to a number of air shows over the years and nothing yet has raised goosebumps like a flight of late model Supermarine Spitfires passing overhead about 300' off the deck.  Four of them in a staggered line abreast formation and a pair of Hawker Sea Furies bringing up the rear about 1000' back.  Awesome.  Absolutely nothing sounds like those Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

Big Jake was set after the turn of the century.  Joe Kidd had a broomhandle Mauser in it so was in that time period too.  Sure there are a few more.
