Remington 870 for Home Defense
Michael, thank you for the great photos and information about your Remington 870 Wingmaster.
Great Blog you’ve got here. I just thought I’d share with you and your readers my 1979 870 Wingmaster. It has been retired from deer hunting and is now currently performing home defense duties.
This 2 and 3/4″ chambered 870 originally came with wood furniture that included a grooved “police” forend and a 21″ smoothbore improved choke slug barrel with rifle sights. The original modifications included a TacStar magazine extension giving a 7+1 loadout, a Choate HighVis orange follower, a TacStar 6 round sidesaddle, a magazine clamp mount “shoot me” light and a sling.

After some practical usage, the shortcomings became apparent. First it was too heavy with a full loadout and 6 in the sidesaddle for the wife to use and the full length stock and short forearm didn’t help either. I managed to find an used set of synthetic youth model stocks with a longer forend. The stock is 1 inch shorter than the original.
