Remington 870 – Old School Riot Gun Project

blgoode has posted very interesting information and photos of his Remington 870 project on Remington 870 Forum:

Snagged an older 870 Express that I wanted to set up as a home use gun. This gun has the aluminum trigger guard, upgraded follower, non MIM Extractor and doesn’t have the dimples in the magazine tube.

First I ordered an 18.5″ IC Barrel.

Length of pull is too long for me to comfortably shoulder so it’s time to chop.

My name is Vitaly Pedchenko, I started this blog and forum to share information, tips, photos, and advice about the Remington 870 shotgun, accessories, and upgrades. Now I also own AR-15 rifle and MP5 pistol caliber carbine. I am firearms instructor, competitive shooter and IPSC Range Officer. I participate in practical shooting and 3-Gun competitions because they are the best way for me to test equipment and upgrades under stress. I am member of the PRACTICA shooting club. I also participate in REAGO, which provides Tactical Combat Casualty Care training. The main purpose of the Rem870.com blog and forum is to have a compilation of information about the Remington 870 shotgun in one organized, accessible place.
