As you know, I have a new Remington 870 Combo and fired about 11000 rounds through it during this year. I use it for practical shooting (IPSC) which means that I need extremely reliable and fast shotgun. Each tenth of a second means a lot!
So, let me start my story about the Remington 870 “Practical”.
I was curious about that but never had a chance to test that. But recently the ejector spring broke on my Remington 870 and that was a good opportunity to test the shotgun without the ejector spring.
Remington 870 Work Without the Ejector Spring
It will work! The shotgun was working properly but with much bigger chance of the stove pipe problem. I had a stove pipe for about each 5-10 shots. So yes, you can still use your shotgun with broken ejector spring in an emergency situation but you need to replace the ejector spring as soon as possible.
The Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical shotgun was first introduced in 2010. Remington had been determined to design a shotgun with a state-of-the-art autoloading action system. What they ended up producing was a tactical shotgun with the best performance and reliability that you’ve ever seen. The reason it is called a “competition tactical” shotgun is because it is suitable for both personal defense purposes and competition purposes. This gives you the convenience of being able to take the shotgun that you use for home defense and bring it to a sporting competition or shooting range for recreational purposes.
The Magpul MS2 Gen3 Sling is a useful upgrade for owners of shotguns or rifles. If you currently carry your shotgun or rifle with your hands while out hunting or target shooting, then you’re going to exhaust more of your energy. A handy sling like this one will keep your weapon securely next to your body while letting you remain hands-free. Just remember that it is a bad idea to have a sling on your home defense gun.
The Blackhawk Knoxx SpecOps Gen III is a premium stock upgrade for the Remington 870 shotgun that you don’t want to miss. If you’re new to shotguns and still using the factory stock that came with your Remington 870, then you know how the recoil feels each time you fire. With the Knoxx SpecOps Stock Gen III, this recoil you would normally feel will be reduced a lot.
Had a chance to try the Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical. Awesome shotgun with many interesting features. I will have a complete review soon, but at the moment, you can watch a small dynamic teaser video:
