AK-47 is the one of the firearms that I own. The Dragunov Stock by Choate is a nice upgrade for your AK-47 or MAK-90 rifles. If you are someone who doesn’t like the current length of pull on the factory stock of these weapons, then you will want to get this Dragunov stock instead. It features a spacer system that will give the user an adjustable length of pull. The pull length can be adjusted down to a minimum of 13 inches and up to a maximum of 14 ½ inches. There are spacers you can add to make this happen. In addition, it is designed with a thumb hole to make gripping much easier for the user. It is especially good for precise shots.

Installation is very simple. Actually, you will spend more time removing standard wood than installing the new stock.

The Remington 870 shotguns are good for competitive shooting, home defense and hunting purposes. However, you might not like the factory stock which comes with each shotgun model. Depending on the size of your body, you might not like the length of pull on the factory stock. Instead, you will need a stock that lets you adjust the length of pull and allows you to shoot more comfortably and accurately. If you have standard stock then you can get Remington Length of Pull Spacer Kit to make it longer but not shorter.

Thanks to Choate Machine & Tool for the stock for review. Choate Machine & Tool is one of the oldest companies which manufactures lots of different parts and upgrades for firearms. Remington 870 owners may know the company for the magazine extensions they produce.

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.

Thanks to Synchronizor for this review

S&J Hardware (http://www.sjhardware.com) is a Canadian manufacturer & retailer of firearms accessories and other shooting-related products. They offer a number of add-ons and replacement components for shotguns, including a line of magazine extensions for the Remington 870 and others. A lot of S&J Hardware’s products have proven popular in the 870 community, such as their magazine followers and Velcro shell carriers, and I’ve personally used several of their accessories for years with good results. Their magazine extensions always sounded really good on paper, but I really hadn’t seen them in the wild much, and had no personal experience with them. This came up in a discussion on the Rem870.com forums, and soon afterward, Scott Mueller, S&J’s United States distributor (http://www.sjhardware.us), contacted me asking if I would be interested in having one sent over for evaluation. Obviously I was interested.

There are many chokes available for shotguns and one of them is a skeet choke. The constriction is between the Cylinder and Improved Cylinder. As you can see, there are a lot of chokes available for any purpose. Skeet is a sport where competitors shoot at clay targets that are flung into the air from two fixed stations and from a variety of angles. It is fun to shoot at clay pigeons and the skeet choke is the one which can help you shoot better.

A rifled choke is different from all the common chokes. It has rifling inside which is designed to add extra spin to a slug in order to make it more accurate. As you know, rifled barrels always make shooting more accurate. There are lots of holy wars about rifled chokes. Some people think that a short-rifled choke which is just 3.5 inches long cannot add sufficient spin that can make shots more precise. Others argue that tests show improvement in the accuracy of the shots. I have tested the rifled Benelli Choke some time ago and the results were pretty interesting. They were almost the same as with the rifled Remington choke.

Remington 870 shotguns are used for a variety of purposes such as hunting and home defense. The only problem novices seem to have is choosing the right ammunition to use with their shotgun. If you’re shooting birds, then you probably think of birdshot because the word “bird” is in the name. If you want to hunt deer, then you probably figure slugs are the best. But there is a third option called “buckshot” that is shotshell which can be used for hunting and home defense.

You may know the Ukrainian STRELA company by the several posts about their products that I had on this blog. For example, they make very nice suppressors for AKs: Review of the AK suppressor. This company is well known in Ukraine because many soldiers and Special Forces units use their flash hiders, suppressors and muzzle brakes.

The new product of the STRELA Company is a six-round sidesaddle for the Remington 870 shotgun. It is made of aluminum and has rubber inserts. It is made from a solid block of metal to give it additional toughness. It looks very nice when installed onto a Remington 870 with Magpul furniture. It works perfectly with the Magpul forend. This sidesaddle has a look that is similar to the Mesa Tactical and ShellShield sidesaddles.

As you know, I recently bought the FrogLube CLP for my Remington 870 shotgun. The CLP in liquid and paste form works pretty well, and it has a very interesting smell and lubes the shotgun nicely. They don’t clean the shotgun as good as Shooter’s Choice Shotgun and Choke Tube Cleaner but it still works pretty well.
