I've scrolled through this thread and may have missed it but no one seems to have recommended a "best" (there is no such thing) outside hammer shotgun for SASS.  Baikals and Stoegers are serviceable.  However, the two shotguns that are the most prevalent in SASS are the SKB and the Browning BSS.  Both of these are much higher in quality that the Baikal and Stoeger.  The SKB is lighter in weight than the BSS which is built like a tank.

Actually, if I needed to buy another hammerless (not being a top shooter) I'd get another Baikal.  Had mine since '99, got a Coyote Cap action job on it in around 2000 or '01 (back then the action job was $125).  Have several thousand rounds through it with nary a problem,  though these days it shares time with an original '97 and the TTN hammer gun.

There is a third choice. Ala Gunzilla, get a Stoeger slicked up and screw a couple of hammers on it. A hammered-hammerless, as fast as a hammerless but the aesthetics of a hammer gun. If the Henry (not the original) is sass legal a hammered-hammerless should be too. I met this character in Texas at a Cleburne match and he created some of the most creative stages that I've ever shot.

Like they say you learn something new every day. So the shotgun Kassnar was NOT glued but rather still screwed into the stock from below and above ( underneath the release lever) once those two screws were removed the frame came apart. However, not before I had already cut a chiseled the old stock off! Ugh!!! Embarrassed

In any event the replacement stock is only a 70$ mistake replacement and I'm in the process of fitting the new stock to the frame. Also, it turns out that the frame internals are NOTHING like the Stoeger!!! I have a leaf spring and the Stoeger has a coil spring. I'll get it sorted out but it has certainly become more of a process.

I'll get this puppy back up and running shortly. I've already disabled the automatic safety engagement , however, the manual safety engagement is still in working order. Now all I have to do is lighten the leaf spring so that it stays open and low enough so that the shells can be ejected quickly.

I guess I was due for a gun "project" at this point anyway!!  Roll Eyes

I suppose the good news is that I've made all the necessary modifications needed to get the barrels to go down and stay open as well as disconnecting the "automatic" safety engagement. So now I have a manual safety, which is good BUT OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wish I had just gotten a STOEGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What a huge pain in the patuty it has been getting my KASSNAR back together.  I think the action is considered a "box lock" so I've "Youtubed" trying to figure out how the damn springs go back in........

After "launching" the springs several times into various parts of my shop, basement, and as far as the bathroom ( really far) I had to walk away from the re-assembly project once again. I've had the internal springs in both ways and up and down, backwards and forwards and just can't seem to get the darn thing back into working order. I may just bring it to a real bonafided g-smith and admit defeat. I may just buy the STOEGER "out of spite" !!!!  Embarrassed Tongue

You know what the the Secretary of the Interior told Chief Dan George in Josey Wales, the indians needed to  "Endeavor to persevere."
Good luck.
