More interesting photos from Afghanistan. Soldier with Remington 870
Interesting photo from Afghanistan. Knight’s Armament RAS on Remington 870:
The Annual Warrior Competition is a combat-oriented competition that is based on physical ability, team work, communication and individual accuracy which takes place at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC) in Amman, Jordan.
It was very interesting to see that they use Remington 870 MCS during this competition:
The Remington 700 is a rifle typically used for hunting and target shooting. The Remington 700 Special Purpose Synthetic Stainless is a high-performance bolt-action rifle which combines affordability with a high-quality construction. If you are familiar with the traditional Remington 700, then you will get all of those features in this updated version plus a whole lot more.
Remington Outdoor Company has been manufacturing firearm products for close to 200 years now. Remington is best known for manufacturing handguns, shotguns, rifles, and ammunition for a variety of customers, including hunters, military, and police. Cerberus Capital Management is the company which currently controls Remington. It was recently announced that Remington filed for bankruptcy.
The company filed in a Delaware Court less than a week ago. The filing includes a revised plan for getting rid of the $620 million that Remington owes. This would help them payback most of the money they owe to creditors, but they will have to give a majority of the ownership interests in their company to certain lenders. Two of the big lenders here include JPMorgan Asset Management and Franklin Resources Inc.
I like Hogue ShortStock with 12″ LOP because it is perfect for home defense shotgun but it is too short for competition use.
The Youth Stock with 13″ Lenth of Pull is perfect for me. This stock and forend set is a very nice upgrade for the Remington 870 pump-action shotgun. If the existing factory-installed stock is too long for you, then you will find this set to be more than satisfactory. It is made from black synthetic reinforced fiberglass, which means it is durable and lightweight at the same time. Furthermore, it means you can now take your shotgun outside no matter what the weather conditions are like. The synthetic material is impervious to rain and snowy type weather. So, if you get caught in a rainstorm while you’re out hunting or target shooting, don’t worry about your shotgun, it will be just fine.

When you are using a shotgun in IPSC or 3-Gun competitions, you’ll only have a matter of seconds to grab more shotshells and load them into the magazine of your shotgun. I even remember old times when we were using caddies to do that. Fast time for loading 8 rounds and making first shot was about 6.5 seconds. Now good time is less than 3 seconds.
Now you may have an old rig but these typically hold shotshells in plastic holders and have to be adjusted to different length shotshells. Fortunately, IPSC shotgun is developing fast and we see new and new products each year. This review is about new EZLOAD NXTGEN Rig.

The Remington 870 shotguns are good for competitive shooting, home defense and hunting purposes. However, you might not like the factory stock which comes with each shotgun model. Depending on the size of your body, you might not like the length of pull on the factory stock. Instead, you will need a stock that lets you adjust the length of pull and allows you to shoot more comfortably and accurately. If you have standard stock then you can get Remington Length of Pull Spacer Kit to make it longer but not shorter.
Thanks to Choate Machine & Tool for the stock for review. Choate Machine & Tool is one of the oldest companies which manufactures lots of different parts and upgrades for firearms. Remington 870 owners may know the company for the magazine extensions they produce.
