The NFA Review Channel pattern tests the Florida-based South East Arms’ Bears Bark abbreviated side-by-side shotty.
Starting with a full-length Stoeger Uplander shotgun; the barrels are cut and machined flush at 10-inches long and the rib gap is filled. Then the stock and furniture is cut, shaped in a birdhandle grip and re-checkered to give it a factory look rather than something done in a garage somewhere. SEA makes them in 20, 28 .410 and 12– thought they caution against the latter.
Overall, it’s super short at just 18.5-inches and tips the scales at a bit over 4.5-pounds.
They test it out with birdshot, buck and slugs to 21 feet.
And before you ask, no, you shouldn’t shoot it one-handed.
