    I picked up this on sale at Davidson's recently. It is finished in a protective 'marine' coat. It has a ventilated barrel shroud and speedfeed stock. It appears that it will function well with Herter's mini buckshot.

    The photo shows 5 plus 1, but it will only hold 4 plus 1 even with the mini shells.

    A full description is in the link below.

    Armscor in title is mispelled as Armscorp. I cannot locate a method to edit it to the correct spelling.

    I picked up one of these a few months ago, but haven't fired it yet.

    I did not keep the one I bought. A disadvantage of buying something on the Internet that a person cannot examine nor handle in person before buying is that it may not fit a person, which is exactly what I encountered with the M5. The action bars flexed too much for my liking and it patterned about 18" high at 45 yards. The stock did not have enough drop for me to get the front bead down in line with the grooves in the receiver.

    After about 15 minutes of handling at my range, I developed a substantial dislike for this M5.

    Saturday morning, I traded it, a new in box Bushnell handgun scope, and $50 cash for a used Remington 552 Speedmaster that was made in 1973 and in nice condition (about 90%).
