Be interesting to see how well they hold up. They could have a winner at that price point.

IMO they are well worth the money. I used to be the armorer for my dept. I have seen Remington 870P's with more problems than these out of the box.

What about the ability to customize? Any information on putting. Pistol grip stock on and extended mag tube?

From what I read mossberg stocks fit with trimming at the point where it connects to the butt. I will pull both apart and verify and take pictures.



As far as the mag tube, it is a welded end so no extention can be added and would require a whole new tube. Numrich carries them online but are totally out.

Ok thanks. For $200 and then the mods it's still cheaper than the 870 or Mossberg
