    I know below there are a number of threads with members individually detailing their shotguns, but why not have a thread where we can all show some of our scatterguns?

    So, my primary shotgun currently is the 870 Police Magnum shown in other threads:

    It's a great shotgun, no frills. Just a few minor (non visible) modifications to make sure things run smooth. Have had SEVERAL hundred rounds through it (500 in one weekend class) with zero issue thus far. I'm pretty sure I'd grab my 870P before my SCAR if I had to run out the door.

    Then I recently acquired this boomstick (Ash would be proud). Just came into a good deal on this Stoeger Coach Gun, I've always wanted a little short side by side, and the timing was right. Lil sucker packs a whallop!

    So go ahead and post up your shotguns! I dont know why, but shotguns have always been one of my favorite types of firearms. Perhaps its the versatility, or maybe the fact they they sure let you know when you've pulled the trigger.

    [IMG] have an 887 nitro mag tactical. It gets mixed reviews by the critics but I personally love it. Ive shot all kinds of loads thru it from low brass target to 3.5" kick-ass 00 buck. It cycles like its supposed to for me. I have an extra bit of rail that I order for my cheap deer savage that was the wrong length that I will be attaching to the forearm to add a vertical grip.

    I happen to like shotguns a lot but I realized I don't have too many pics of them. I found a few:


    Pic of my original Winchester 1897 made in 1916 next to my trench gun copy by Norinco:

    Pic of some more "modern" SG's; my Vangcomp 11-87 Police, Benelli M3Super 90 & Rem 1100:

    A more recent picture with my converted Saiga 12 resting on it's 20 round drum, the same 1100 in it 3 gun configuration and the trench gun copy with a sling on it:

    Awesome. I have wanted a 1897 forever. How do you like the Chinese copy? I have heard good things.

    I was skeptical also when they first came out and decided to get a look at them before buying. One of things I didn't like about the cowboy guns were the cheap birch stocks with that orange stain but I found out the trench versions were stocked with Walnut that was grown in the US and shipped over to be made into stocks. I finally got to handle one and being familiar with my original I was impressed with the quality of the copy and how true it was to the original. I didn't see any "cheapness" and went ahead and bought it. I found the action was rough shooting at first but after I put some rounds through it, it began to smoothen up. Having had it for a few years not I can tell you that I am very happy with it and it is still a great SG.

    Nice job on that stoeger! While it may not be my style, it sure came out great! Is that a dip or a wrap? If it's a dip, did you do the dip or have it done?

    It's a dip. I had it done. She wanted something different than the wood. Not my thing either, but she digs it. A happy wife = happy life

    No problem 434chad.......NOBODY likes the ''Disappearing Toes trick'' !!:eek: KlikKlak..KUHBOOM:(

    Has anybody discovered that the Rem.870 Expres (25077) has a factory 1 pc mag tube....and because of this the older 870 bbls will NOT interchange. The new design has the retainer ring on the bottom of the bbl( what the mag tube end screws up against ) WAY out by the end...not 4-5'' inches back like the old style.

    Yeah, thats how they are on the tactical 870 Express' now a days. The field guns have the shorter mag tube and can use the regular barrels, however on the regular Express models the end of the mag tube is crimped to retain the cap that holds the spring in place, and those crimps need to be removed if you wish to add a mag tube extension.

    All of the above, along with the higher quality workmanship and lack of many of the complaints the Express' suffer from, is why I went with an 870 Police. The police magnums get the same treatment as the wingmasters, only they are obviously differently configured in terms of the barrels, and it gets the workhorse finish and furniture, rather than the pretty finish and wood.

    My Express has not been the rust magnet that others speak about. I took it apart, cleaned it up well and oiled the crap out of it. I've had it for about 2 years and have run ?? 300-350 rds thru it. Works fine....I have thought about doing a Krylon camo on it , but have left it alone other than putting a Wollf mag spring in it. I really don't have a problem with it.

    The easiest fix for the express bbl problem was ....BUY another Rem.870( this one is a Super Magnum) that WILL take old bbls !!!:D I KNEW I could find a reason for getting sg #2 !!

    Here's my Catamount Fury. I never took a picture of my 870. It's your standard hunting shotgun, you've seen one, you've seen them all.

    Reattached Fury pic and included the 870 Express pi.
