Banshee posted new photos and iformation about his short barreled shotgun on Remington 870 Forum:

Sure no problem. I haven’t made any new pictures, so these are all old.

The shotgun started out as a Wingmaster Police trade in with a Mossberg replacement barrel that I picked up for $149.00. So, no nice 870 was harmed in this transformation.

There was a LOT of time spent measuring and planning on what needed to be done to make everything work out to reach my goal of an OAL of less than 18 inches. I chose 18 inches because that is the legal limit of a non NFA shotgun barrel and I wanted the whole gun to be shorter than that limit. I surpassed my goal by 1/2 inch.

I mounted the receiver in a lathe using a four jaw chuck and a steady rest. Cut the mag tube down and re-threaded it with the same square thread Remington used. The barrel was cut down to 7.00 inches and the barrel support ring was removed with a torch, reshaped so it would fit the barrel in the new location and silver soldered in place. The fore end tube had to be shortened and re-threaded. I made several different sling mounts and finely decided to use this one here.
