Rob Roberts gun shop

Postby Tgunz_64 » Sun Jan 12, 2014 1:59 pm

Looking at possibly getting the forcing cone in my super Vinci extended and also maybe porting the barrel. I see Rob Roberts does it and was wondering if anyone has had any work done by them or had any type of work done that I mentioned at all? And if so how did you like them or the work that was done? Would it be worth extending the cone and/or porting?

Ported guns almost always guarantee you wont be invited into many blinds.

Yes I was kidding, But It is a good idea to wear ear plugs at least on the side of the other gun in the blind.

I had forcing cone, porting ,slapper, trigger job done. I liked all of the work, it but porting to loud for the blind, and just buy recoil reducer from J&H for M2 and SBEII. Change your recoil pad it helps alot on hot loads.

Rob and crew do excellent work and have a quick turnaround. Call them at the shop 870-251-9955 and discuss what you want and they'll guide you in the right direction. They're good folks.

~12 seasons ago, I contacted Seminole Gun Works in Florida (2X) and asked about forcing cone and back boring work on my SBE.

Both guys (two separate calls) told me that for steel shot, such work was a waste of my money as lead shot is the primary beneficiary of such enhancements.

Would not do a ported waterfowl gun. For the reasons stated. quite a bit louder for your friends hunting with you. We had a buddy that used a ported mossburg turkey gun and 3 1/2's and everybody would try to sit as far away from him as we could, and gave him tons of crap about it and he finally got a new gun lol :bow:

I would shoot the gun as is. If you want to spend some money get a quality extended (nonported) choke tube or two. The longer parallel section generally will help your patterns.

With all kidding aside x51 gives the best advise , I think !

Knowing what to order for a choke is something else ? but , knowing your bore size and patterning your gun/chokes
at the distance you normally shoot birds ( most successful distance ) and 5 yds farther , will make you happier !

You don't need to spend a lot of money on a well constructed choke , just one that works for you and the ammo you like !

Only you can determine this ! :thumbsup:

If you love your dogs you will leave your ported guns at home...............

Unless they have hearing protection, too !!

Cutting and polishing the forcing cone is the first thing I do to any shotgun barrel - as long as the bore is not chrome lined...

Regardless of chamber length, I feel you should always cut and polish the forcing cone, unless your barrel already comes with an extended forcing cone. Yes, a long forcing cone is beneficial when shooting steel shot. I have seen guns with short and rough forcing cones that would throw consistent 40% pattern at 40 yds., then cut a 2" forcing cone with a fine polish and with the same loads and choke, this gun would throw 60+ % patterns. I have seen this time and again, and to repeat myself, if you are shooting steel shot, make sure your forcing is cut (extended) and polished - it does make a difference....

I have heard this before about back boring but not forcing cones . Angle Port told me this years ago when they did my H&K Sbe. They said for steel shot forcing cones is a must but back boring is more for when you shoot mostly lead .

I've had three (3) barrels that the forcing cones were honed out to 2+X the factory length.

Pre & Post patterns were basically unchanged which tended to (IMO) validate what the guys at Seminole stated.

This was done back in the late 1990's when I was trying any and everything to find improvement with the commercial steel crap that was available back then.

With back-boring I believe there is a benefit , along with most manufactures shotguns ( these days ) come back-bored !
If .729 was a standard bore diameter for most all US made shotguns but , Now they can be from .732 to .742 bore dia. !
for better patterns with less radial pressure to the barrel . As far as Forcing cones , shooting steel shot , well it's been
proven that any increase does help but , there is no gain past 1 1/2" in the forcing cone ! And , some manufactures are
doing that as well in the Waterfowl guns they offer .

Even Boonelli's :lol3:
