Dear readers of Rem870.com blog, here is second PK’s project: Remington 870 Marine Magnum
My latest project: the stock, full length rail/heat shield and side saddle combo are from Mesa Tactical, flip up sites from Troy Industries, Vang Comp high dome safety, Remington police forend, Tactical Link sling, 517 EOTech. I picked up the Marine Magnum at a local pawn shop for 330.00. I don’t think it had ever been fired. Debated a long time about getting a 870P to customize and finally settled on the MM because of the finish.
The Mesa stock works great, the pistol grip allows for excellent manipulation and control of the gun during tactical and speed reloading. Also being able to lengthen the stock is an advantage to me when shooting slugs at a distance. Mesa offers three variations, and I feel the LEO is the the best value. Every Mesa product I have purchased was top quality. Some after trying I didn’t like or keep, but that was personal preference not any indication regarding quality. Mesa does have a pdf viewable catalog at their website, however they do not sell product from their site.
Mesa offers a recoil reducing buffer tube from Endine Manufacturing that, according to them reduces felt recoil by 70%. I have never tried one so I cannot comment on how effective it might be. I kinda feel that if the gun fits, recoil won’t be an issue and many Mesa accessories will fit a 20ga. so the 870 Express 20 is always an option.
The Mesa full length rail completely installed weighs in around, maybe 11oz.,. My MM is heavy, just over ten lbs., I was quite suprised at the weight of the EOTech. The Tactical Express that I originally talked about tips the scale at 8lbs. 10 oz., remember those weights are without ammo in the magazines or side saddles.
Once again I have to mention the sling, I’ve tried three other slings and this one from Tactical Link is awsome. The QD works perfect with the Mesa LEO stock, I also have installed Tactical Link’s QD adapter on an M-4. Transitioning from shooting to the back hang position is a breeze and can be accomplished while drawing a sidearm, reversing is just as easy.
PK, thank you very much for photos and information!
Home Defense Remington 870 Marine with Parts List
Many of you asked about this Remington 870 Marine which won the Remington 870 Photo Contest. I really like it too, it is simple but have all the necessary home defense upgrades and accessories.
Let’s see closer what Remington 870 shotgun parts were upgraded, what accessories were added. The most important is not to get lost looking on all cool upgrades and not to make your Rem 870 looking too tacticool.
So, let’s start with the most important home defense shotgun upgrade – flashlight. Owner decided to go with the Surefire Forend Light which is great. This is forend with built-in flashlight, meaning it is very easy to use. Surefire forend is also very reliable and there is no chance that it can stop working or fall of the shotgun.
What else can be upgraded? What is one of the most important parts of the shotgun? Remington 870 stock and forend. If stock is too long or too short, you cannot use them comfortably. You cannot aim accurately, you cannot rack shotgun fast, sometimes you even can’t have good positive grip. Wrong stock even can hit you when you fire. So, it is very important to choose stock and forend that fit you.
Remington 870 Magpul SGA stock and forend are very good. Stock is very easy to adjust for any shooter, tall or short. It enables you to install cheek riser, one-point sling adapter or 2 and 3-point sling. It is rock-solid and you cannot go wrong with it.
Shell holder is a must have for home defense shotgun. Sidesaddle on this Remington 870 Marine shotgun is from Mesa Tactical. Sureshell shotshell carrier is one of the best sidesaddles available. It holds shells perfectly but you can easily use them when needed. There are many versions available.
This Remington 870 shotgun has one-point sling which is popular choice. There are less chances that 1-poing sling would catch on doorbells or furniture.
As you can see, there are ghost ring sights installed on this Remington 870 Marine. They make aiming easier. Tritium sights glow in the dark allowing to use them 24 hours a day.
This home defense setup is very nice and simple, no unnecessary tacticool accessories and upgrades.
