Tactical Remington 870 Shotgun Photo

I have received photos of a tactical Remington 870 shotgun from one of the readers of Remington 870 blog. J.R., thank you very much for the very interesting photos.

Here are some pics of my budget tactical 870 build. It has a Streamlight TLR-1 modified so the mount does not sit under the forend, a Remington sling, a Mesa Tactical barrel/mag clamp with quick release swivels, a leapers saddle scope mount and a Barska 1×42 red dot sight (cheap and effective). A Tanks Rifle Supply oversize safety arrived today and a Mesa Tactical low tube telescoping stock kit is on the way. I will be adding a King Armory muzzle brake and a Sage International +3 mag extension asap.

  1. Hey Vitaly, just check’n to see if you got the pics & info about the Vang follower & the Sage mag tube.

  2. Hey J.R.,

    Thanks for your message, I don’t check my backup e-mail often so it is good that you sent it here.

    Just checked my mailbox and I got your e-mail. Wow! Thanks for the great info and photos! Everything looks great and I love the forend strap, simply great idea. Can’t wait to post your photos to the blog :)

    Thanks again!

  3. By the way, Vang Comp follower looks like a great addition to a Remington 870, especially with your positive comments. I think I will get one for my shotgun.

  4. Good, glad to hear it. I just heard from Mesa Tactical that my stock will ship in two weeks, I’ll keep you posted. Talk to you soon, J.R.

  5. what clamp are you using to attach your flashlight underneath like that? Ive been trying to do the same thing but havent been able to find anything.


  6. Hi Cary, It is the Streamlight mount for 870’s. I had to do quite a bit of modification to it due to my short forend. Out of the box it sits very far back over the forend. Let me know if you are interested and I will post the details for you.

    Take care, J.R.

    Nice set up, I just spent an hour trying to find that strap. Would you mind letting me know where you got it.
