There are many chokes available for shotguns and one of them is a skeet choke. The constriction is between the Cylinder and Improved Cylinder. As you can see, there are a lot of chokes available for any purpose. Skeet is a sport where competitors shoot at clay targets that are flung into the air from two fixed stations and from a variety of angles. It is fun to shoot at clay pigeons and the skeet choke is the one which can help you shoot better.

A rifled choke is different from all the common chokes. It has rifling inside which is designed to add extra spin to a slug in order to make it more accurate. As you know, rifled barrels always make shooting more accurate. There are lots of holy wars about rifled chokes. Some people think that a short-rifled choke which is just 3.5 inches long cannot add sufficient spin that can make shots more precise. Others argue that tests show improvement in the accuracy of the shots. I have tested the rifled Benelli Choke some time ago and the results were pretty interesting. They were almost the same as with the rifled Remington choke.
Remington 870 shotguns are used for a variety of purposes such as hunting and home defense. The only problem novices seem to have is choosing the right ammunition to use with their shotgun. If you’re shooting birds, then you probably think of birdshot because the word “bird” is in the name. If you want to hunt deer, then you probably figure slugs are the best. But there is a third option called “buckshot” that is shotshell which can be used for hunting and home defense.

We can call this a “Tactical Build” or a “Home Defense Build” or maybe just “Building a REM870, 20-ga… My Way” !
Please Note that I am not going to tell you how to disassemble or assemble your Shotgun, I leave that to people on this Site that know a lot more than I do about the Remington 870 Express. I will call out the parts and part numbers (P/N:) where I known, and give a short review.
Magnetic shotgun sights are becoming very popular amongst competitive shooters and hunters. They help shooters aim their targets properly and accurately, especially if the environment is dim or dark. The HiViz Magni-Hunter is one of the top shotgun sights on the market today. For one thing, it is a magnetic front sight that utilizes Magni-Optics which allows it to attach to virtually any shotgun that is vent-ribbed. Some popular brands that have vent-ribbed shotguns include Remington, Benelli, Browning, Beretta, Ruge, Charles Daly, Franchi, and Verona. The make and model of the shotgun don’t really matter as long as the vent ribs meet certain size requirements. The ventilated ribs of the shotgun need to be between from .230″ to .330″ for MGH2007-I and between .3555 inches and .440 inches for MGH2007-II, in order for this magnetic front sight to fit properly. You’ll find that most of the models from those brands have vent ribs which meet this size requirement.

Remington is a popular shotgun brand that has been around for almost one hundred years. People love to use Remington shotguns for all kinds of shooting activities such as hunting, target shooting, and even home defense. The type of ammunition they use will typically depend on what they plan to use their shotgun for. If they are going to go out and shoot ducks, then you would use birdshot. You would use buckshot for home defense. However, if you plan on hunting bigger animals like deer, then you’ll want to use slugs with your Remington 870 shotgun. Slugs are the deadliest form of ammunition and they are quicker to kill a target than birdshot or buckshot.
You may know the Ukrainian STRELA company by the several posts about their products that I had on this blog. For example, they make very nice suppressors for AKs: Review of the AK suppressor. This company is well known in Ukraine because many soldiers and Special Forces units use their flash hiders, suppressors and muzzle brakes.
The new product of the STRELA Company is a six-round sidesaddle for the Remington 870 shotgun. It is made of aluminum and has rubber inserts. It is made from a solid block of metal to give it additional toughness. It looks very nice when installed onto a Remington 870 with Magpul furniture. It works perfectly with the Magpul forend. This sidesaddle has a look that is similar to the Mesa Tactical and ShellShield sidesaddles.
As you know, I recently bought the FrogLube CLP for my Remington 870 shotgun. The CLP in liquid and paste form works pretty well, and it has a very interesting smell and lubes the shotgun nicely. They don’t clean the shotgun as good as Shooter’s Choice Shotgun and Choke Tube Cleaner but it still works pretty well.
Some features of the Remington 870 shotgun have changed, such as the locking safety. Let’s examine some of the main differences between the Remington 870 Police, Remington 870 Wingmaster, and the Remington 870 Express. The Remington 870 Wingmaster is the classic shotgun that is often called the “Cadillac” of Remington. The Remington 870 Police is a specially built and crafted shotgun the looks similar to a Wingmaster, but instead has a dull finish to it.
The Remington 870 Express is considered to be the most affordable of the three. Anyone who is new to shotgun ownership, and on a budget, will likely choose the Express. Remington has been able to make this shotgun more affordable because they have less manual labor going into its manufacturing. Plus, there are rumors Express shotguns are not polished or de-burred like the more advanced models, such as the Police and Wingmaster. If you’ve seen the new Marine Magnum and Tactical shotguns, you may have noticed they’re based on the Remington 870 Express model. However, the Express has similar high-quality steel components inside of it that the better 870’s have. The only difference is a different finish and that it does contain some MIM parts and plastic parts as well.
