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:

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.
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))
If you have a loose latch in your Remington 870 pump-action shotgun or Remington 1100 semi-automatic shotgun, then you probably know how difficult it can be to restake the latch with just a staker and hammer. The Remington 870/1100 Shell Latch Staking Tool will make your restaking job so much easier. Not only will it help you locate the shell latch that is loose, but it will allow you to restake the latch without the need of a hammer. If you like staking latches with ease and convenience, then you should invest in this tool right away.
Remington has made gas-operated shotguns since the 1950s. Their very first one manufactured was the Model 58 semi-automatic shotgun. This shotgun line enjoyed a fair amount of success between 1956 and 1963. But then, they built a better gas-operated shotgun which reduced recoil a lot more. This model was called the Remington Model 1100. It was first introduced in 1963 and has been manufactured ever since. The three most common gauges manufactured for this shotgun are the 12-gauge, 28-gauge, .410 bore and 20-gauge.
The Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical shotgun was first introduced in 2010. Remington had been determined to design a shotgun with a state-of-the-art autoloading action system. What they ended up producing was a tactical shotgun with the best performance and reliability that you’ve ever seen. The reason it is called a “competition tactical” shotgun is because it is suitable for both personal defense purposes and competition purposes. This gives you the convenience of being able to take the shotgun that you use for home defense and bring it to a sporting competition or shooting range for recreational purposes.
Failure to feed is a pretty rare problem which is also difficult to identify. I didn’t understand what happened first times when I experienced it. You feel that you hit something when you push forend forward trying to feed another round and when you check what happened you see a shotshell on a carrier and everything looks normal.
The original Remington 870 shotgun was designed in a way that allowed the shotshell to get jammed between the carrier and the bolt. If you tried to remove the shell, it would be a rather difficult process. If you ask anyone who used Remington 870 shotguns before the 1980s, they’ll tell you that it required a user to disassemble the shotgun. Don’t do what a lot of gun owners do and just slam your shotgun onto a hard surface because that will damage the action bars.
