There are many chokes available for shotguns and one of them is a skeet choke. The constriction is between the Cylinder and Improved Cylinder. As you can see, there are a lot of chokes available for any purpose. Skeet is a sport where competitors shoot at clay targets that are flung into the air from two fixed stations and from a variety of angles. It is fun to shoot at clay pigeons and the skeet choke is the one which can help you shoot better.
A rifled choke is different from all the common chokes. It has rifling inside which is designed to add extra spin to a slug in order to make it more accurate. As you know, rifled barrels always make shooting more accurate. There are lots of holy wars about rifled chokes. Some people think that a short-rifled choke which is just 3.5 inches long cannot add sufficient spin that can make shots more precise. Others argue that tests show improvement in the accuracy of the shots. I have tested the rifled Benelli Choke some time ago and the results were pretty interesting. They were almost the same as with the rifled Remington choke.
Remington 870 shotguns are used for a variety of purposes such as hunting and home defense. The only problem novices seem to have is choosing the right ammunition to use with their shotgun. If you’re shooting birds, then you probably think of birdshot because the word “bird” is in the name. If you want to hunt deer, then you probably figure slugs are the best. But there is a third option called “buckshot” that is shotshell which can be used for hunting and home defense.
Remington is a popular shotgun brand that has been around for almost one hundred years. People love to use Remington shotguns for all kinds of shooting activities such as hunting, target shooting, and even home defense. The type of ammunition they use will typically depend on what they plan to use their shotgun for. If they are going to go out and shoot ducks, then you would use birdshot. You would use buckshot for home defense. However, if you plan on hunting bigger animals like deer, then you’ll want to use slugs with your Remington 870 shotgun. Slugs are the deadliest form of ammunition and they are quicker to kill a target than birdshot or buckshot.
The Remington 870 Express Youth Pump Action shotgun is a 20-gauge special that not too many people know about. Of course, most people are familiar with the Remington 870 shotgun model because it has been around for roughly 60 years. The 12-gauge Express, however, is what most people are familiar with. The Express Youth Pump Action is a 20-gauge with a design that’s proved reliability over the years. It has great versatility and shooting characteristics. The slide-action performance of the 870 Express Youth gives you fantastic reliability and dependability while you’re shooting the weapon. If you’ve ever used a Remington 870 before, then you’ll love the look and feel of the Remington 870 Express Youth because they are very similar in both design and quality.
Remington 870 Express Youth is perfect choice for youth or lady.
If you own a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, then you are probably interested in more choke tubes so you can shape how your shots are going to spread after they leave the bore. The importance of adding a choke tube to a shotgun is so you can add more constriction to your shots. Otherwise, the shots will just spread wide as soon as they leave the bore and this will make it very difficult to aim at small targets that are in your line of fire. To install a choke tube into the bore of your shotgun’s barrel, you need the right choke tubes and installation tools in order to make sure that it is done right.
As you know, I am a very active competitive shooter. I mostly participate in practical shotgun shooting matches such as the IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation). I have used the Benelli Supernova in competitions but decided to go back to the Remington 870 this year. The long 28-inch barrel is perfect for that purpose. It has replaceable chokes and the barrel is long enough for all types of targets. I am going to use the short barrel for home defense and the tactical shotgun for shooting matches.
A couple of words about my brand new Remington 870 Combo. As always, it comes in a simple carton box. The shotgun comes with the barrel removed. You will find two barrels inside: the 28-inch ventilated rib barrel with the modified choke installed and with bead sight, and the 20-inch barrel with rifle sight. There is also an instruction book, lock, magazine plug, and choke tube wrench.
The lock is a little different from the one which I got in 2008. Also, the new stock and forend are made of very nice wood. The laminate wood stock and forend on my first shotgun had a light brown color and looked cheaper. The current set has a dark brown color and looks and feels like real wood
What is Tritium night sight?
If you are someone who wants to have better shooting sight with your shotgun at nighttime, then Tritium night sights are what you’ll want to install onto it. These particular sights have the ability to illuminate on their own by relying on a small amount of tritium gas that glows. This glowing gas creates a bright dot which you can see in dark or dim areas. The tritium gas should be able to last you for 10-12 years before you have to replace it. Tritium night sights are the opposite of fiber optic sights, which are helpful for aiming in the daylight. The night sight can replace the current front sight of your weapon and give it a focusing ability that it didn’t have before.
One of the biggest benefits of having a tritium night sight for your shotgun is that you don’t have to use batteries with it. This will save you a lot of money if you frequently go shooting at night. Other kinds of sights, like red dot sights, cost people a lot of money each year in batteries alone. Plus, they need to be switched on when you want to use them and the tritium night sights glow all the time. Tritium night sights do not require any light exposure and their exterior is durable enough to sustain many harsh environmental conditions. Most of the tritium night sights are made in the United States by American gun parts manufacturers. So, you can be sure you’re getting the very best sight possible.
Read first part here: Review of the 4 Pistol Grips for the Remington 870 Shotgun
Thanks to Synchronizor for this detailed review!
There are three controls that an 870 user manipulates with their shooting hand: the trigger, the safety switch, and the slide release. With the traditional semi-grip shotgun stocks that the 870 was designed to use, these controls are all easy to reach and manipulate. Pistol grips, whether part of a stock or stand-alone, can have a significant effect on how – and how easily – these controls are manipulated. Pistol grips rarely interfere with the gun’ s trigger for obvious reasons, but they can – and frequently do – make working the safety or slide release slower or more difficult.
The 870’ s cross-bolt safety is located right behind the trigger, and with a traditional stock that’ s no wider than the receiver and doesn’ t enclose the rear of the trigger guard, it is possible to apply pressure on the safety with the side of the finger, rather than the tip. This allows the user to disengage the safety while keeping their fingertip on or very near the trigger, so a shot can be made virtually immediately. With traditional stocks, the safety is also fairly easily reached with the thumb or middle finger for re-engagement, or for disengagement in the case of left-handed shooters using an 870 with a right-handed safety switch.

I won’t get into when, where, and for what I think pistol grips should and shouldn’t be used, because it would just add several thousand more words to what is already a massive piece. I’ll simply say that while they have many downsides, and a fixed or folding stock will be a better choice for many situations, pistol-gripped shotguns do have their place. They’re very compact & maneuverable, and (usually) lighter than a full stock, which can be beneficial on a gun that’s used more as a tool than a weapon, or one that needs to be stored or deployed in very tight spaces. They’re also cool; a lot of folks (myself included) buy a pistol grips just for fun, and that’s a perfectly legitimate reason to own one.
