I wanted to write this article for many years now. There are numerous variants of our favorite Remington 870, and it is a little difficult to choose one for a beginner. I receive lots of questions about different versions of the 870 and which one to choose.
There are several posts about Williams Fire Sights on Rem870.com:
–Williams Gun Sight Company: Remington 870 Universal Ghost Ring Firesights
–Williams Gun Sight Company: Remington 870 Fiber Optic ACE IN THE HOLE Sight Review
–Remington Ghost Ring Firesight Set by Williams Gun Sight Company, Inc.
I decided to try another type of Williams Fire Sights on my Remington 870 with rifle sights:
There are many barrels available for the Remington 870 and other shotgun models. Most of the barrels have standard lengths like 18.5″, 21″, 26″, and 28″. Some of them are a smoothbore and some of them are rifled. In addition, there are many chokes available.
So, which one is better to shoot slugs with? Which one is more accurate? What is the best slug barrel? Usually, shooters and instructors recommend using a Cylinder or Improved Cylinder with slugs. Some shooters know that there is a rifled choke option, but they are not sure about its efficiency.
I conducted a series of tests to understand shotgun, chokes, and slugs much better. It took a lot of time but now I can share the results with you.
The short-barreled non-NFA Remington TAC-14 shotgun was a success and now Remington introduced semi-auto shorty.

The Remington 700 is a rifle typically used for hunting and target shooting. The Remington 700 Special Purpose Synthetic Stainless is a high-performance bolt-action rifle which combines affordability with a high-quality construction. If you are familiar with the traditional Remington 700, then you will get all of those features in this updated version plus a whole lot more.
Remington Outdoor Company has been manufacturing firearm products for close to 200 years now. Remington is best known for manufacturing handguns, shotguns, rifles, and ammunition for a variety of customers, including hunters, military, and police. Cerberus Capital Management is the company which currently controls Remington. It was recently announced that Remington filed for bankruptcy.
The company filed in a Delaware Court less than a week ago. The filing includes a revised plan for getting rid of the $620 million that Remington owes. This would help them payback most of the money they owe to creditors, but they will have to give a majority of the ownership interests in their company to certain lenders. Two of the big lenders here include JPMorgan Asset Management and Franklin Resources Inc.
If you own a Remington 870, Remington 11-87, or Remington 1100, and you want better accuracy when shooting slugs, then you will want to upgrade your weapon’s factory sear spring with the lighter spring. You can read about Remington factory sear springs available in previous review: Remington 870 Sear Springs (Light Pull, Standard, Police (Heavy))
Remington introduced new line of Remington 870s with detachable magazines… What do you think about them?
If you brake a Remington 870 ejector or ejector spring, then you’re likely going to need a good rivet staking tool. The Remington 870 Rivet Staking Tool Set is a must-have for easily installing the ejector and ejector spring on Remington 870 shotgun. This tool set comes with 2 ground punches which are specially made for this particular fitting task.
