Custom Tactical Remington 870 Review
Updated Remington 870 Review from Tactical887.
My 3-year build- Remington 870 Custom Tactical
Mesa tactical urbino stock with cheek riser and 6 round right side shot shell holder and limb saver (very ergonomic and easy to adjust and maneuver) = 145+75=220
mesa tactical right side saddle 4 rounds (easy to reach and great for tac reloads) =51
2 sets of custom installed trijicon night sights (fast sight acquisition and works great in low light and are strong and durable)= 220+install 150=370
wilson combat jumbo head safety with custom warning ring (great for better control over the safety while in a stressful situation)= 15
metal police trigger assembly with timney trigger upgrade (adds a lot of reliability being metal and the timney trigger is light and crisp for fast fallow up shots and pin point precision) =95+90=185
tango down snubbie (very ergonomic has a built in water proof compartment and quick detach is a nice feature)= 61
mesa tactical 8 round side saddle (fantastic, all metal rugged and reliable)=80
2 speed feed foregrips ( one of the best shortend fore grips out there, will work with an 8 round side saddle) = 50
improved cly barrel with cera kote paint job, porting, night sight and heat shield (tight groupings, low recoil, and very manageable because you don’t have to worry about burning yourself) = 350
remington police fore grip ( nice grip but will not work with an 8 round side saddle and overlaps the receiver) = 34
gg&g mag follower with wilson combat 7 round spring( very solid and reliable and easy to take out upon disassembly) =38
gen 2 rhino rail with only 50 ever made (this rare rail is extremely light weight, acts as a quad rail in the front and is attached by 3 screws on the top of the receiver, will not scratch the barrel and acts as a heat shield, my favorite rail) =150
bobcat fore grip ( rugged and reliable, but it is quiet heavy, has 3 7” 1913 rails) =150
2 CGR covers ( great for adding personality to your gun)= 46
magpul xtm rail covers (work well for protecting the rails and detach quickly with the tip of a .223 bullet)=15
remington 2 shot mag ext ( preforms flawlessly) =87
remington rem choke barrel with porting (best barrel I have owned, low recoil due to it being ported in 2 spots and the tac choke is versatile and produces very tight patterns) =290
non min extractor ( adds a little more reliability to you 870 and preforms flawlessly, but it does need to be fitted for you 870) = 17
standard mesa tactical urbino stock with limb saver ( light weight and versatile but not vey adaptable)=125
ATI pistol grip set ( the pistol grip works great but the rest is all junk and is designed poorly) =165
mossberg back up barrel for 870 with hi viz front sight and install ( great back up barrel, simple and gets the job done, spread is much greater) = 220
remington sure shot stock (great stock for hunting, love the super cell recoil pad and easy to manipulate ergonomics) =68
choate tool 2 shot mag extension (great ext. never had a problem with it)= 45
back up flash light mount (cheap and heavy)=10
fab defense 10 position flash light mount ( very versatile and easy to use)= 37
sure fire g2x pro ( great 2 setting tac light virtually indestructible, but for the money I wish it had more lumens)= 70
ATI halo heat shield ( total piece of junk will not work on an 870 tactical and will scratch your barrel) = 40
2x cera kote paint job (rust resistance, sleek look, can extend the life of your 870) = 800
black hawk gen 2 spec ops knox stock with powerpak ( good idea poor design, don’t waste your money, the downward design of the recoil spring will jump up and smack you in the cheek the only way I found to fire it comfortably is when I didn’t rest my cheek on the stock) = 160
tac star six round side saddle (cheaply made)= 40
mesa tactical 6 round saddle rail (very solid and well built would recommend for receiver that have not been drilled and tapped)= 105
Hi vis MBP snap on ( don’t waste your money it pops off everytime a round is fired) = 22
Hi viz spark 2 ( it’s a nice sight just takes some getting used to) = 7
TOTAL= $4157 (just for what I have in the video and pics, my grand total with ALL my upgrades not shown is nearly 7,000)
Yes im insane for spending that kind of money, but this 870 is extremely sentimental to me and I wanted to make it extremely modular and to my exact liking (this was also over the course of 3 years only upgrading my 870 and looking for the best aftermarket parts).
HERE ARE SOME OF THE PHASES:
ATI pistol grip kit and heat shield, choate tools 2 shot ext, hi viz snap on sight (that wouldn’t stay on so I put electric tape on it), 18” Mossberg replacement barrel.
