thanks alot, that's why I went with something a little more expensive, aluminum, instead of that Chinese metal. I can easily maneuver it with one arm. I had to adjust the side saddle because it wouldn't fit with the rail, but the way I did it it won't fall apart and I have shot some heavy magnum loads thru her. The red dot it water/shock proof and has multiple reticles, so I can use it for slugs and buck. Also when I added the extension I flattened the indents instead of drilling to keep dirt out

And completely remodeled it. I polished all the internals and I added a few parts;
Gg&g enhanced follower
Black aces quad rail
Tube extension
Kicklite stock and forend
High end open red dot
5 function light
Mess side saddle
Butt saddle
Folding foregrip
And a generic sling

I then added my own little touch

What do yall think
Not my style, but not bad. I did the same internal work on mine a couple years ago, and kept my visible mods limited to a synthetic youth model furniture set (black), a L\H safety conversion, ( wife and I are both in our "right" minds ) and an aluminum 7 round magazine extender. I have added a 4 function light and mount and a slip on shell holder to the stock within the last couple months.

The red trim looks good on yours. Strictly cosmetic, or is it to hide the blood stains after using it as a club?

I like the red racing stripes. That's a nice touch.

I ninja'd my 870, too. It was just a boring Police Magnum, so I "fixed" it.

- Speedfeed IV-S stock
- +2 magazine extension
- GG&G sling plates
- GG&G magazine follower
- GG&G safety
- Trijicon night sights
- TacStar side saddle
- S&J Hardware bayonet lug
- Clark magazine clamp
- SureFire picatinny rail
- SureFire X300
