mossberg 590A1 is supplied with a bayonet lug for the exact same purpose and bayonets are an essential part of trench guns/combat shotguns. its usefullness cannot be challenged as it has served well with US troops in WWII. infact, well enough for the germany to whine about them.

Thanks Gauge12, an eye opener, never knew the shot gun is a combat weapon too. My understanding before reading your post was a shot gun is a sporting weapon only. Thanks again for this informative post & thanks to ka-khan for starting this thread.

@ED
I think that Weapons have changed a lot through time but their shapes have almost remained the same except a few ergonomic or cosmetic changes. I dont think there is much to change except little things and mostly the materials.

Khan bhai, shotguns have seen every single battle in US history. infact, the sole credit of using/deploying shotguns in war and development of combat shotgun/trench gun goes to US. their success can be understood by the fact that germany launched an official complain against the use of shotguns in WWII. they were used in American civil war (both sides used shotguns) whereas pump actions and manual repeating shotguns were first used in WW1.

even in Iraq and Afghanistan, shotguns are deployed in large numbers. there is no substitute of the devestation that a shotgun can cause at a close quarter battle scenario.

one more thing: shotgun is the oldest surviving firearm to date (a musket is actually a shotgun) and will probably remain the same for years to come.

Regards.

the SG is primarily a short range weapon. makes sense to have an ultra short range weapon mounted on the barrel

Everything that looks cool also weighs, it's utility thus, must outweight the cool looks...
