One more shotgun from the Remington 870 Photo Contest. Let’s have a closer look at upgrades it has.
There is an interesting discussion on Remington 870 Forum. jdinny posted pics of his Remington 870 with ATI AR-15 Scorpion Recoil Pistol grip on Mesa Tactical LEO Stock:

Special thanks to Tactical887 for this review of the new ATI 7 Shot Fluted Magazine Extension.
I have announced review of the ATI Talon stock and ATI Talon Aluminum forend some time ago. Now, after tests, I can tell you that it is nice set with many interesting features. The only disadvantages are complicated installation and heavy weight of the stock.
Don’t trust many negative reviews of the ATI stock and forend. I think that most of the negative reviews were from people who installed upgrades incorrectly. I am not affiliated with ATI and this is honest review with advantages and disadvantages of this set.
ATI Talon aluminum forend will work with Mossberg, Remington, and Winchester shotguns. This forend looks extremely good on Remington 870. It is surprisingly lightweight and gives user lots of options and different accessories.
The only disadvantage is complicated installation with several adapters. But this needs to be done only once and then you can benefit from all the interesting features of the ATI Talon Forend.
Some time ago I had a post about Remington 870 Heatshield by ATI. This time I want to have more detailed post with better photos.
I have tried to start using a heatshield several times. Remington 870 looks very good with ATI heatshield and has nice features but it also has some disadvantages.
Remington 870 Shotgun in Italy with ATI collapsible stock
Eros from Italy sent me some new photos and information.
My remington 870 customization. The only thing i have to say is that if you want to put a sling plate between the remington 870 receiver and the ATI collapsible stock you’ll need a longer 1/4″ UNF screw because the one included in the kit it is too short… (a 1/4″ UNF 2 1/2″ long screw will fit). You will need it only in case you would like to put a sling plate between the 870 receiver and the ATI collapsible stock… The choate forend works like a charm and doesn’t need any work to fit the remington 870… Great… the sidesaddle works good but this was the easiest part…
Eros, thanks again for photos and info!
Eros from Italy has sent me advice about ATI CollapsibleButtstock with Pistol Grip for Remington 870:
