I receive a lot of questions from shotgun owners which want to add a heat shield (barrel shroud) to a shotgun. So, this review will describe available options and how to choose the best heat shield for the Remington 870.

AustenW posted photo of his Remington 870 Wingmaster on Remington 870 Forum:
Here is my build from the UK, Its an old 870 wingmaster with non vented barrel and metal trigger housing
24″ ported barrel
Nordic + 5 extension
I silver soldered the LPA front sight on and milled the holes on the receiver myself and had the whole gun cerakoted

The main purpose of the shotgun heatshield is to protect hands from burns. I have bought it because barrel gets very hot after big number of shots. Also, you will not need to worry about the hot barrel when reloading.
