Most of this grip style choice is based on personal preference. I prefer the standard grip style over pistol. The shotgun is for CQB. It’s part firearm and part club. I think the standard grip makes swinging it, striking and thrusting easier and more natural. Plus, I’ve heard the pistol grip is harder on your hand with the recoil of shotguns. Not so with AR-15’s.

So you've never shot a shogun with a pistol grip buttstock. Because what it does, and I know this from shooting them, not just hearing it, that it helps spread the recoil out to something beside just your shoulder.

Having a ton of experience with the AR platform, a pistol grip feels just as normal to me as an English straight grip or a regular semi-pistol grip.

I have always used the standard stocks, but have been considering going with a pistol grip. There are pros and cons to each and some depends on use,environment, and physical ability to name a few. I am considering going NFA with a 14" barrel and stock like on the X4 but haven't decided as yet.

@ entropy,
Having never shot a shotgun with a pistol grip stock, I’ll defer to your experience. I’ve also not had the life long experience with the AR platform, so there’s that influence. We all tend to go home to mama. Mama is a standard shotgun stock for me. 

That said, I use a hybrid between the two in a sense on my 1301, the Magpul SGA stock. It’s half pistol grip, and half regular stock. I love it. And, it is the same manual of arms as the 10/22 rifles I shoot a lot. Everything feels the same. 

Here’s both the 22 and the 1301:

I'm not a fan of pistol grip stocks for shotguns.  My $.02.

The magpul stocks are good, also. They are actually popular with Trapshooters who shoot 870s, as a pistol grip that curves more helps, and is usually a feature of very expensive Trap guns. (Ljutic, Guerini, Kolar, etc.)  

i actually shot Trap with the 870 in my post, with a 28" RemChoke barrel with either a Carlson Full or a RemChoke Super Full, all 2018 and 4 weeks into last season, until my 1100 Competition came in.
