Police marine magnum with a couple 'o accessories & upgrades

Post by gratefuljed » Sat Feb 03, 2018 3:06 pm

I've always wanted a nickle colored shotgun, so I pulled the trigger. Sent it to Vang Comp. Hans is a hoot. I asked him "how long?" In his thick accent he said "we tell customer 2 weeks to be on safe side, but we can do it in 1 week, couple of days, one day, even 20 minutes!" I like the walnut furniture, it came with, I put the hardware version of the safety on and the streamlight tlr-1 on a nice plastic single rail. In this pic I have the fancy metal sling mount but have a wilson mag tube sling mount I prefer.

I bought - 2 - of the remington le blade-tech holsters. I don't think I'll be walking around like that, but you could! If anyone wants one you can look to your hearts content and not get one, or buy one from me! The powers that be do not want us owning these for some damned reason. Blade-tech won't even admit to making them...

Great forum, love me 870!

Very nice! I like how unique your shotgun is. Always been a fan of wood and nickel, love the leather touches. Question did they do a cerakote on it? Also post some more pictures I would like to see it without the blade tech.
Great looking shotgun

Thank you for adding pictures. Did VangComp do an electroless nickel finish on it? And do you have before pictures

you are welcome. Hans only drilled, he did no painting! The weapon looks no different finish wise than it did from the factory.

Ok I understand what you did. Did you add the wood furniture yourself? I ask because the place Marine magnums come with Black forend and stock.

Cool I didn’t know you could order a police marine magnum. May I ask who you ordered it through and what options did you have
