870

  1. Shotgun Forum
    I have an older 870 Express with a 18.5" barrel that's a shooter, as much as a working shotgun can be, I suppose. With its rifle sights and rifled slugs I'm happy with its precision out to 25-30 yds, but I mostly put 7-1/2 or 00 through it. The only time I've ever had problems with it was when I...

    Trying to figure out the best method for attaching a section of rail to a 20 gauge 870 forend, since my preferred Surefire forend isn't available. Lots of options for 12 ga, but not finding one for a 20, so looks like I need to make my own. Anyone done this or know of a forend that is most...

    Hey guys, I am picking up my stevens 320 this week and I have the field buttstock on it. I don't think I'll hate this, but I like having options. Are there any after market pistol grip buttstocks anywhere that fit without modification or with minimal modification? I do not have the tools for...

    Sorry guys, if you've answered this a million times before, but grateful if you'd indulge this newbie. I have no prior shotgun experience but have narrowed it down to the 870 vs the 500. I'm leaning toward the 18.5" 870 pump action. But wonder whether the recoil of a 12 ga is too much to ever...

    Just picked up a Remington 870 Express Tactical Haven't shot it yet but excited to do so! I've been researching the available modifications to this gun and there's lots of things you can do to it. However, so far the only thing I think would add any tactical functionality to the gun would be...

    So about 4 months ago a buddy bought a used but like new 870 12ga. Its not the "tactical" but it's the one with the 18" barrel, no choke, and full length magazine and holds 6+1. I liked it and decided i was gonna get one so the next month I did. Only difference was mine is new and black, the...

    This summer, I will be buying my first shotgun (I'm 16). I think I'm getting a Maverick 88 12GA pump. Is this a good choice? I'm on a budget, and the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 seemed a little pricy. I know the Maverick is a simplified 500 with Mexican parts. I was wondering if anyone had...

    I own a Remington 870 Marine Magnum in the black XCS/Trinyte coating. I love it. I wanted to know if these Marine Magnums use the same internal components as the 870 Express, such as MIM (metal injection molding) parts: extractor, etc? I couldn't find any info anywhere on this topic. For an...

    I picked up a 2nd 870 to modify it as more of a home defender. I would like to know if there is an accepted/easy way to remove the sights that are silver brazed onto the barrel? I thought a little heat from a propane torch and some pliers would work but wanted some confirmation. Thanks!

    A while ago I brought the question to the board: 870 or 590? (A question, after being around for several months now, I see is rehashed again and again) I ended up going with the 18" 870 12 ga - my personal choice, albeit a hard one to make - and haven't looked back. I'm extremely happy. For...

    Hi all, I thought I should post a question here regarding finding something different then the standard rifle sights on my 20" fully rifled barrel !. With my eyesight I find the standard ones a bit difficult to "find" or use in quick situations, does anyone know if there is something similar...
