Here is small video from recent training. The shotgun works perfectly and I plan to write a big article about modifications and upgrades required to make standard 870 super reliable and ready for competitive use. Enjoy the video!
Hogue short LOP stock was too short for me for competition use (but great for home defense) and standard stock was a little too long. So I decided to remvoe half of inch for a perfect fit. Watch the video.
The original Remington 870 shotgun was designed in a way that allowed the shotshell to get jammed between the carrier and the bolt. If you tried to remove the shell, it would be a rather difficult process. If you ask anyone who used Remington 870 shotguns before the 1980s, they’ll tell you that it required a user to disassemble the shotgun. Don’t do what a lot of gun owners do and just slam your shotgun onto a hard surface because that will damage the action bars.
I took part in an interesting handgun competition – GSSF (Glock Sport Shooting Foundation). Usually, I don’t shoot handgun matches but this one is very newbie friendly. The price of participation, handgun rent and ammo was very inexpensive.
There are a lot of gun oils and lubes available on the market. And each year we see new brands and new formulas. Every shotgun owner should have a high-quality shotgun oil for cleaning and lubricating their weapon with. If you want to keep your shotgun working as smoothly and efficiently as possible, then you will want a gun oil that can clean and lubricate your shotgun thoroughly. After all, there are many internal components of a shotgun that grind against each other as they move. If you don’t lubricate these moving parts on a regular basis, all that friction is going to cause these parts to become worn out. Once that happens, the functionality of your shotgun will become affected. Overall, the reliability of your weapon will all become affected. That is why anyone who shoots their shotgun a lot should start cleaning and lubricating their weapon with gun oil.
