Would love to see a catagory started for the 870 shotgun or just shotguns would be fine...I know were mostly about the 700's, but lets start up a scatter gun section. :D

I say that 870 should go good with this forum because its a remmy :)
And everybody that has a 700 must have an 870. I've got a very special one I made for Turkey hunting.
Thanks fellas for your interest as well. I really like my 870 and it has served me well in the short time I have owned it. I have a 870 express combo which has both rifled 20" slug and 26" VR barrel. I have taken it Boar and Pheasant hunting with good success. Looking to hunt Turkey as well too! Today I recieved an 18.5" cylinder bore police barrel so I have a close quarter weapon to use if needed. I also added a Scattergun Technologies 2 round mag tube extension which is a great addition and adds to its firepower capacity. I hope we can get this going so we have some scatter gun eye candy to look at from the membership!

OK here's mine. I started with a plane used 870 that I picked up in a trade at a gunshow. It had a 30 inch full choke and I chopped it off to 18 inches for a house gun. Later on I found a Remington factory folding stock and mag extention. Then about 1990 or so, I got interested in Turkey hunting. There wasn't much in the was of Turkey guns back then so I made my own. I found a 20 inch smooth bore slug barrel with rifle sights. I had my local smith thread it for choke tubes and stuck a extra extra full turkey choke on it. Then I sprayed it with automitve ruberized undercoating and then some flat camo paint. Later on I changed the sights to Williams Fire Sights. They're fiber optic red front and green rear.

It needs to be repainted again because it's spent a lot of time in the back of the truck, dragged through the bush and just plain neglected.

^^^^ nice :D one main reason I like the 870 is because you can beat the SH!T out of it and still have a working shotgun :D

Well I figured I would add a couple of pics of the 870 I have. I recently added an 18.5" police barrel to the collection so I have another home defense weapon. The extended mag tube is a Scattergun Technologies product and is well made for the investment. The other barrels include a 26" VR barrel with a modified choke and a 20" rifled slug barrel with open sights. These two barrels came with the 870 Express as a combo option. I am super happy with this shotgun and to date has served me well.

Just refinished the stock on my 870 and it turned out pretty good. Lets just say its a damn site better then Remington did from the factory! I like the look of a good laminated stock!......
