The first thing you want to do when trying to replace the forend of your Remington 870 is to make sure the weapon is unloaded. You’ll want to check both the chamber and magazine tube by visually looking at them and by feeling around with your fingers. That way you can ensure that you don’t have any accidents during the process of replacing your forend. Next, you will need to gather the right tool for doing this job. There is a special forend removal tool that you can purchase at most gun stores, but if you have a pair of pliers then they will be fine.
Testing chainsaw grip for shotguns. Turned out that it won’t work with Remington 870 with rifle sights :) because rear sight is not alllowing for hand to work the forend.
Thanks to Michael Skelton for the idea.
GT-5000 Grip Tape is very easy to use, inexpensive grip tape. You can apply it to many things like guns, knives, tools etc. I decided to make Magpul MOE Forend little more grippy.
My friend which lives in Greece has sent me interesting information and photos of the Mako (Fab Defense) Remington 870 M4 Folding Shock Absorbing Collapsible Buttstock and Forend Rail System.
I have received many questions about these stock and forend and I am happy to share photos and info with you.
Very interesting story from Jeffrey Lors, one of the readers of the Rem870.com Blog. Make sure to visit his blog here: http://oldironadventure.com/2014/01/26/shooting-skeet-with-your-tactical/
