We can call this a “Tactical Build” or a “Home Defense Build” or maybe just “Building a REM870, 20-ga… My Way” !

Please Note that I am not going to tell you how to disassemble or assemble your Shotgun, I leave that to people on this Site that know a lot more than I do about the Remington 870 Express. I will call out the parts and part numbers (P/N:) where I known, and give a short review.

UltimateGuns posted very nice pics of the home defense build on the Remington 870 Forum:

“Here’s an Ultimate 870HD build I did for a customer. It started life as an 870 Tactical, but I upgraded basically everything. I installed our Ultimate Reliability Kit, which includes the non-MIM extractor from the 870 Police model, the upgraded carrier dog spring, and a Vang Comp follower. I also added the 870P sear spring to reduce the chance of a negligent discharge. I added a Vang Comp Big Dome safety. Next, I polished the action bars and coated them with Cerakote’s MicroSlick, so it cycles like butter. I also added MicroSlick to the bolt. Next, I installed a Nordic Components magazine spring. I finished it in black Cerakote. I also installed a XS Big Dot tritium bead night sight, and a Mesa Tactical aluminum shell carrier. After the pics were taken, I added an Elzetta Alpha flashlight…315 lumens and only 3.4 ounces. Furniture is from Magpul. It came out pretty well.

codyphillips48 decided to build an 870 and posted interesting information and pictures about future build on Remington 870 Forum:

So I figured I should start a thread other than my intro thread to cover the build. So my plans with this build is pretty simple. I’m going to make my take of the 870 MCS. I’ll call it the 870 CMS (Cody’s Modular Shotgun) haha. Why would I want to do something like that its simply because I can. I like the idea of having everything in one case. A grab and go kind of pack. Also please remember I’m in Brasil right now until June 18th. So I cant take any pics. Only pic I can put up is ones my brother sends me. I have a wanted ad up for parts like looking for if your looking to sell parts.

Interesting topic and photos from Remington 870 Forum:

Greetings all. I am new to this forum. I am little by little doing a tactical build to my 870 Express. So far I added 20″ barrel and a Vang Comp +2 mag extension tube. So far so good. Will be adding CDM BMT mag clamp. I’d like to get some recommendations on stock and forend options. Have been looking at the Speedfeed Law Enforcement Forend and the Magpul stock, so would appreciate any feedback. Am getting hung up on sling attachments, so any suggestions are welcome. Thanks all.
