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:

S&J Hardware (http://www.sjhardware.com) is a Canadian manufacturer & retailer of firearms accessories and other shooting-related products. They offer a number of add-ons and replacement components for shotguns, including a line of magazine extensions for the Remington 870 and others. A lot of S&J Hardware’s products have proven popular in the 870 community, such as their magazine followers and Velcro shell carriers, and I’ve personally used several of their accessories for years with good results. Their magazine extensions always sounded really good on paper, but I really hadn’t seen them in the wild much, and had no personal experience with them. This came up in a discussion on the Rem870.com forums, and soon afterward, Scott Mueller, S&J’s United States distributor (http://www.sjhardware.us), contacted me asking if I would be interested in having one sent over for evaluation. Obviously I was interested.
June, 2017. The Salinas City Council voted to give the police department the go ahead to buy 70 brand new shotguns for $47,905, specifically brand new Remington 870s with a price tag of approximately $627 each.

The guns are being bought from L.C. Action Police Supply based in San Jose, where the department previously purchased its supply in 2007. They are expected to arrive by the end of this month.
“Realistically we don’t fire shotguns that often in critical situations, but every day you go out and you check to make sure the shotgun works. Everyone is issued the same ammunition,” Shaw said. A cadet goes through an average of 300 rounds during the academy.

On Jan. 31, 2017, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) announced plans to buy and evaluate 600 12 gauge SkyNet Mi-5 shells from AMTEC Less Lethal Systems (ALS). If the Air Force was happy with the tests’ results, the service would have the option of buying another 6,400 rounds
The Air Force said it will fire the projectiles from its standard Remington Model 870 shotguns. For the cartridge to work properly, Airmen will need to install “choke tube” with rifling to the gun’s muzzle to get SkyNet spinning. The contract options also included a possibility of purchasing 100 of these add-on devices.
Usually, the magazine extension is first upgrade which every Remington 870 owners installs:

Offtopic today. Here are two of the recent problems which happened to Mossberg 500/590 of fellow shooters.
If you are looking for a rifle with autoloading rimfire features, then you’ll definitely love shooting the Remington 597 rifle. This weapon is coined as being one of the most advanced rifles for autoloading rimfire that has ever been built. One of its biggest differences between other autoloading rimfire rifles is its bolt-guidance system which has two steel guide rails that give it enhanced stability. Not only that, but the rails make the weapon more accurate and reliable for the shooter as well. This makes the weapon suitable for virtually all kinds of shooting activities such as target shooting, hunting, and war situations. You may not hear too much about this weapon because a lot of novice shooters aren’t aware it exists. Remington does a good job of advertising their Model 700 rifles a lot more than their Model 597. But if you are not so comfortable with the Model 700, try out the Model 597 before you quit the Remington brand all together.
