Mine looked similar to that but the older style butt on it. The hinge/lock mechanism is plastic and it has some play in it. I imagine if it was actually used much it'd only get worse over time.
rgallant- that shotgun would be considered a Short Barreled Shotgun (SBS- barrel <18" and a stock) here and would require a tax stamp ($200). Most states allow them though once you obtain the stamp. Additionally you have to file paperwork with the ATF when you want to take it across state lines; not hard, just a ridiculous bureaucratic hurdle they make you jump through. It's the reason the Mossberg Shockwave and the Remington Tac-14 have become popular- they are workarounds to the inane laws we have regarding firearms. They are considered "firearms", not shotguns, despite the 14" barrel, since they have an overall length of 26" or greater. They must be built on a virgin or pistol grip only receiver that has never had a stock on it and they must meet the overall length requirements. There is also another classification known as "any other weapon" which allows for things like cane guns, the Serbu Super Shorty, pen guns, wallet guns, etc. About as clear as mud.
